The 85th Annual Academy Awards was held at Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles and was hosted by Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane. While initally skeptical about the choice of MacFarlane as host, I actually found him to be rather good. Granted, I haven’t seen it all, but I loved the opening monologue which you can watch below. Continue reading for my fashion picks, some amazing performances and a full list of winners.
LOVED Seth’s mention of Ben Affleck’s Best Director snub by the Academy, seriously, the man should have won! I also really enjoyed the musical numbers of Catherine Zeta Jones, Jennifer Hudson and the cast of Les Miserables, though I was left wishing Anne Hathaway had chosen to wear that dress on the red carpet. And Adele’s performance of Skyfall was flawless. I was only about to find a good copy of Adele’s performance that I could add to the page. For the others, click here.
Now onto my fashion picks!
Hands down goes to Naomi Watts. She hit this out of the PARK. In this gorgeous Armani Privé gown, she shines like the star she is.
Brandi Glanville. I don’t even know why she was there and she just missed the mark completely. I think it would have worked much better if she picked a dress that fit her properly.
