From the dresses, hairstyles and accessories on the Red Carpet, to the surprising wins, acceptance speeches and Ellen’s hosting duties, the Academy Awards is the subject of the day.
So let’s get right to it and play a round of 3 Things, Oscar style:
Best Dressed: For me, the best dressed of the night was Best Supporting Actress winner Lupita Nyong’o in her pale blue, plunging necklined, very-pleated Prada dress. It had such an Audrey Hepburn feel to me (she’s a fave of mine) and the cut and color were perfect for Lupita. Oh, plus she had a matching Clarin’s lip balm in her bag!
Favorite Ellen Moment: I thought Ellen did a great job hosting the event and my favorite moment was seeing my local go-to pizza delivery place, Big Mama’s and Papa’s, make a special delivery to the A-listers in the front seats. If you are ever in Hollywood and need pizza, a 2 liter of soda AND french fires delivered all at once – you know who to call!
Favorite Winner’s Speech: Twenty years later and it’s still hard for me not to scream “All right, all right, all right” as soon as Matthew McConaughey appears on screen. (If you haven’t memorized “Dazed and Confused” yet, get on it!) In fact, I tweeted that out before the Best Actor winner quoted it in his acceptance speech. (Score one for the we heart this twitter feed!) I was thrilled for his win, and admit to getting rather teary eyed when McConaughey choked up during his heartfelt and humble acceptance speech
Your turn, we heartsters. Cut and paste the following and tell us these 3 Things!
