Oscars 2010, Thoughts at the Halfway Point

And of course, this is the point where hubby (that contrarian) insists we must get started on the taxes. Anyhoo, before he completely succeeds in driving self batty, here are some random thoughts:

  • Sandy Bullock does not look good with red lipstick.
  • Luuuv Anna Kendrick’s pale pink gown (Co-nominee Vera Farmiga’s frilly fuschia gown looks pretty gorgeous as well).
  • Tom Ford seems to be channeling Keanu Reeves.
  • Suzy Amis (former actress — appeared as Gabriel Byrne’s GF in “The Usual Suspects” — and currently Mrs. James Cameron), what has happened to you?
  • Oh, where oh where was Zach Quinto? (When they showed a clip of “Star Trek” during the Best Make-Up category, the clip reminded self all over again why Young Spock was sooo hawwtt!)
  • It doesn’t seem fair that “Up” has won every category it was nominated for (Pixar movies seem to have a lock on Oscars, at least in the past decade!) including Best Musical Score, which self feels strongly should have gone to “Fantastic Mr. Fox.”
  • Poor Amanda Seyfried, having to present with a va-va-va-voom Miley Cyrus!  Who was taller, more bronze-d, and whose gown heretofore served notice that (gulp) Miley Cyrus has quite a voluptuous figure!

So far, three awards for “The Hurt Locker”, two for “Avatar.” They’re neck and neck heading into the home stretch! Quentin, how hard must it be for you to sit through each category where you are nominated, only to see the Award given to a) “The Hurt Locker” or b) “Avatar”? Thank God no one from either of these movies was nominated for “Best Supporting Actor,” which rightfully went to (a pretty hot) Christoph Waltz.

Self was pretty psych-ed that Mark Boal won for his screenplay (for “The Hurt Locker”)! And after listening to Mark Damon’s oh-so-authentic-sounding South African accent in the clips of “Invictus,” self has decided to add the movie to her Netflix queue.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
