QUICK OSCAR FEELINGS:
First of all, I've decided that my favorite dress of the evening was Ellie Kemper's. I love the colors--sort of an autumn harvest firework sequin explosion. Love it. I also loved Octavia Spencer's dress, and once Gwyneth got rid of that cape thing, I liked hers, too.
"Hi I'm Ellie Kemper, and doesn't my dress make you want to drink cider from a fancy goblet?"
Another highlight was, of course, Robert Downey Jr., who always steals the whole show with his presentations and his hotness. Seriously, do the world a favor and hire him and Jude as hosts.
I would've been happy watching only that camera angle for the duration of the Oscar broadcast. Just saying
Next highlight: Tom Cruise! He looked amazing! He WORE that navy blue suit. Our Oscar-watching posse was speechless for a second, and then we couldn't shut up about him. Dang.
"Hi I'm Tom Cruise, and MI:4 was awesome and EVERYONE KNOWS IT."
Bonus: I thought that I spied Pharrell in that weirdo music balcony, and whilst perusing Entertainment Weekly's red carpet recap, I came across this little snapshot. Lookin good, Pharrell.
"Hi I'm Pharrell; I get invited to everything because I'm a Bad A"
Well, now I need to go Redbox The Artist! And Hugo.
