Oscars Red Carpet

The red carpet is in full swing. I had to turn off E! because I don't like Kelly O. and their manicure magnifier was so ridiculously pointless. Who wants to listen to actresses talk about their nails?

I'm now watching TVGN with the Bachelor's Chris Harrison. He gets better every year, and it's actually pleasant to watch with some meaningful questions about the reason for the event: the movies.

I've never even heard of Seth McFarlane who is hosting tonight. A quick search of Google doesn't leave me expecting much. It's been years since a host did anything spontaneous, so it probably doesn't matter much who is hosting.

Who did you think looked great? Awful? What network are you watching? Updates to follow.

Looking great: Jennifer Lawrence, Jennifer Anniston, Halle Berry, Jennifer Hudson

Christopher Waltz' wife looks very pretty.

As usual, Also a thumbs down to:

Lots of people are praising Jessica Chastain's dress. I don't like the color, but even more than that, look how it fits from the side.

    The lady is 75 years old, still looks like she's in her 50's.  Seriously, she looked amazing.  

    I liked Naoimi Watts (my #2), Jennifer Garner's dress (not the necklace), Hallie Berry, Jessica Chastain, Charlize Theron (my #3), Amy Adams, Sandra Bullock, Jennifer Hudson, Amanda Seyfried, and Queen Latifah.

    Agree on Jane Fonda (none / 0) (#7)

    ...there is an A between the M&C.

    To me, a pretty big fan, I find it very odd that he is doing this and even odder that they choose him.  

    He has spent most of his career insulting everything Hollywood, directly and indirectly, but usually spot on.  As a fan I also find it a bit beneath him and certainly some form of sellout to do the bidding of the industry that his life's work has pretty much made fun of.


    The show recently sent out mailers to Academy members that featured Peter Griffin asking for their vote, as it read:
        "Come on, you bloated, overprivileged Brentwood Jews. Let is unto your little club."

    Anyways, I guess if they are willing to take him and he is willing to do it...
