Oscar Highlights 2012

 

Let’s just say the ladies looked spectacular last night and so did the gentlemen. This 2012 Oscar season was  what we would describe as the “Best Looking” event of the year and perhaps decade. Kudos to all the designers. The custom dresses and tuxedos were stunning, positively.

So some highlights, right? Well it seems like France is taking over L.A. with The Artist winning many awards last night, including Best Picture. Wow, the infamously good looking Jean Dujardin won the coveted Best Actor award and had some pretty steep competition–including Brad Pitt. His starring role in Hazanavicius’ silent movie The Artist, playing actor George Valentin, received widespread acclaim, but now he’s on the look book of American ladies everywhere.

And of course who could over look  Meryl? Her Best Actress speech made half the world cry, I’m sure, including the front row audience members. Stars were starry eyed when Meryl confessed that she probably won’t have this opportunity again, so she was going to relish in it. Some were upset Viola didn’t win it, but when you’re competing with Meryl…eh, things get tricky. Meryl went for an understated look, minimal make-up, and, to coin a word from last night, a breath taking gown.

And can we just say that Billy Crystal needs to lay off the botox. His face is starting to resemble Joan Rivers. Way too much tanning, cheek implants, eye lift, botox in the forehead and chin…bad, bad, bad. Can’t you age gracefully Billy? We love your comedy but come on. You’ve never been a glamor model, so why try now at your age?

And Kermit the Frog? Well, I guess because of the new Muppet movie craze, but we’ve never quite understood the dynamic between Miss Piggy and Kermie…it’s just…odd.

One a different note, Tom Hanks never looked better. Sure, he’s aging, but the goatee thing he had going on with his salt and pepper hair, quite simply, worked. Congrats Mr. Hanks, you made our Best Dressed List.

And finally, thank heavens for Chris Rock. He was like a breath of fresh air when he came in! His comic relief came at the perfect moment, with great timing, great kickers, and made the whole Cufflinksman House laugh. Kudos to you Mr. Rock. You’ve come a long way from your HBO days..

Talking about animated films, he was saying how easy it is to be a performing–you show up, say a few lines, and get a million dollars. Mmm….must be nice.
