There was an Oscar night! The most important event in the movie world took place in the City of Angels, again this year! Beautiful dresses, talented actors and actresses, so much fun, tense moments and so on and so forth! The Oscar night gave great emotions with some touching and inspiring speeches.
“This year, when you hear your name called, don’t get up right away”
Jimmy Kimmel opened the ceremony promising there would be no sequel to the 2017 Best Picture mishap. Do you remember? Warren Beatty announced La La Land had won the Academy Awards when in fact Moonlight was the winner.
Warren, what are you up to? You scared the hell out of everyone! Let's move on now!
Jimmy Kimmel’s opening monologue supported the Time’s Up movement . “If we can work together to stop sexual harassment in the workplace, if we can do that, women will only have to deal with harassment all the time at every other place go.”
AND THE OSCAR GOES TO…
The winner for Best Actress is Frances McDormand for her performance if Three Bilboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. I don’t know her so much, but I don’t doubt her skills. My best favourites were Maryl Streep or Margot Robbie but they didn't win.
Frances McDormand delivered a powerful speech asking every female nominee to stand with her in solidarity.
“If I may be so honoured to have all the female nominees in every category stand with me in this room tonight”
“Maryl, if you do it everyone else will. Come on” And Maryl Streep stood up first.
Gary Oldman is the Best Actor. After a great carrier, he could hold his first statuette for his fantastic performance as Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour
“My deepest thanks to the Academy and its members for this glorious prize. I owe this and so much more to so many” .
He moved everyone thanking his mother:
“I would like to thank my mother, who is older than an Oscar. She is 99 years young next birthday and watching on her sofa. I say thank you for your love and support. Put your kettle on, I’m bringing Oscar home.”
Let me share a little curiosity with you. He asked his girlfriend to marry him dressed up as Churchill! I couldn’t help but imagine the scene!
The Academy as Best Picture goes to The Shape Of Water, written and directed by Guillermo Del Toro. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it to you!
DRESS TO IMPRESS
And of course, my dress review couldn’t be missed! No black dresses. I saw some very beautiful dresses. What’s my favourite one? I’ll tell you very soon.
Margot Robbie and Jennifer Lawrence were radiant! I LOVE THEIR OUTFITS!
I’ve always loved electric blue dresses. I found a couple “not bad at all”, I’d say!
Nicole Kidman’s was very particular too.
Sandra Bullock was splendid in Louis Vuitton!
And, last but not least, neo-Oscar winner Emma Stone chose dress pants for the red carpet!
JENNIFER GETS IN TROUBLE
I’m almost done, I swear! But first, anyone interested in Jennifer’s funniest moments, raise their hand!
She has provided some of the most relatable Oscar moments in recent years. When she won the best actress award in 2012, she tripped up the stairs in her Dior dress. In the following year, she fell over a traffic cone on the red carpet! You want to hear the punch line? She climbs over Oscar’s seats with her wine glass while she was chatting with Meryl Streep! I love that girl! But, Jennifer, please, don’t make fun of Emma Stone!
