A Dandy Oscar Night

After watching last night's Oscar telecast along with most of the world, I decided to hand out a few of my own Daily Dandy Oscars for last night's attendants.

First up-

Best Boobs- Sarah Jessica Parker
Leave it to Carrie Bradshaw's alter ego to find a new twist on an old stand bye. Pushed up and overflowing never looked so glamorous. You can thank Sarah for single-handedly bringing back in fashion the buxom bosom. I guarantee you will be seeing this look at some point on every red carpet this year.

Best Jewels- Angelina Jolie
Angelina went safe and sexy for last nights Oscars but it was her stunning, yet simple pairing of emerald earrings and an emerald cocktail ring that I couldn't take my eyes off of. Their size and simplicity were truly remarkable. But really, what doesn't look good on Angie??

Best Blast From The Past-Phoebe Kates
Phoebe Kates looks like she could go right back to Ridgemont High! Pictured here with her husband Kevin Kline, I had all but forgotten about her until she showed up at the party of all parties last night. She looked stunning and I couldn't help but wonder if she had shared a special "moment" with her Ridgemont High co-star Spicolli, aka: Best Actor Oscar winner Sean Penn.
Duude-they've both come a long way since then.

Best Acceptance Speech- Sean Penn
I was supposed to be pissed about this one. As you know, Sean stole the award from my man Mickey, but as I listened to him nervously accept the award from his opening comic comment to his ending political rant, the guy won me over. My first thought, when he began his speech about gay rights was, "Oh no, please don't do it. It never works in this forum," but I found him to be eloquent and succinct with just enough political relevance for his message to to resonate. I may even need to see Milk because of it.

Best Family Shout Out During An Acceptance Speech-Kate Winslet
How adorable was Kate Winslet's dad, whistling inside Oscar central to let her know where he was seated? The ever-so-elegant Ms. Winslet looked surprised and enthralled that she and the rest of world, in that very moment, knew where her mum and dad were sitting. It was a wonderful, unscripted, real moment.

Best Why Were You There??- Miley Cyrus
I think Miley Cyrus is a cutie and as a teen icon-she totally rocks. But that's what she does-she rocks! Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't she a singer/TV star for the "tween" set? So why is she all dolly-ed up at the grown-up Oscars?? Are the producers of the telecast that desperate for "tween" viewers? I mean, even Zach and Vanessa performed and Zach was a presenter at the awards. Miley had no official reason for attending. Again, why was she there??

Simply The Best- Hugh Jackman
Just look at the man. Need I say more? The guy could be reciting the alphabet and I would still watch. He is just dreamy in a Hollywood kind of way. And he can sing and dance too!!! Who cares if he wasn't all comedy-he made up for it in TV face time, charm, and his adorable Aussie accent.
Well done Hugh!
And congratulations Hollywood!

I think that is the first time SJP ever got voted Best Boobs. ;)

Bill Stankus said...

Ha Ha! Are we ever on opposite sides!

the iNDefatigable mjenks said...

Shouldn't PETA be up in arms about that first picture? I mean, it's cruel to put a horse in a dress like that.

Piece o' Coconut Cake said...

I also loved the shout out that Kate gave to Meryl "Suck it up!". Cute! How was mexico BTW?

Heff said...

Thanks for keeping me "abreast" of the awards show !

BeckEye said...

I would've given SJP an award for Best Arms. In fact, I should've! She could've beaten up Daniel Craig easily.

The only reason I can think of why Miley Cyrus was there was because she voiced the girl in "Bolt." And because she's unfortunately one of the most famous people in the world right now, which makes me weep for the future.

As for Hugh...well. Oh my. Boy, would I like to go down under with him.

BeckEye said...

Oh, and I loved Papa Winslet too! I thought he was so utterly adorable. I can't believe I forgot to mention him in my awards ceremony. I might have to give him a late award. Or I'll just adopt him, seeing as both of my adopted grandpas (Burgess Meredith and James Whitmore) are gone. *sniff sniff*

SouthernBelle said...

Hugh is WORKING that tux. Love it.

Sassy Britches said...

I missed all the excitement by going to bed pretty much right after the Heath Ledger business!

YES for SJP's boobs. It was so tasteful I thought. She looked fab.

I watched Sean's acceptance speech today online, and I agree that he looked so NERVOUS, poor guy. But, you're so right. Succinct with a message. GO SEE MILK, woman!

Oh, how I wish I had seen the whistle incident! My dad does the same thing. In a full university graduation from U of Illinois, my dad busted out his unmistakable one, and my brother immediately knew exactly where we were.

And Hugh, lovely Hugh.

LYDIA said...

Oh I love Angie and Kate! And Penelope....

Angie's emeralds were beautiful! I was very jealous.

oh and,
Hello Candy!

mike said...

I have never watched the Oscars in my life, but, like everyone else, I always check out who won the next day. I wish I could go to Vegas and bet money on stuff like Heath Ledger will win and his family will have some touching moment while accepting, or that Brad and Angelina will be all over the news whether they win or not. I can honestly say I have never heard of half these movies... so either they suck or I do.

Cheryl said...

YOU'RE BACK!!! *whistles*

Sarah Jessica Parker looks amazing when she doesn't put birds or other dead animals in her hair.

Cora said...

Angie could wear anything and make it look stunning. How unfair. (sniffle)

Gotta love Kate Winslet though! I adore her!

Cora said...

And welcome back by the way! Blog World was just not the same without you, Candy!

Scope said...

What doesn't look good on Angie?

A vial of Billy Bobs's blood.

Or Billy Bob.

emanobop said...

mike said...

Kate Winslet? I guess she could be a good actress, but it Titanic was a looooong time ago. She looks like Kate Winslet's crazy older aunt.

Brad was looking slightly dorky in that pic. and OH MY Sarah! ...oh my...
