Oscars 2014

The 85th annual Academy Awards have come to past and Ellen Degeneres, on her 2nd go as host did a good job in moving the long ceremony (clocking in at a final run time of 3 1/2 hours) along. The Academy spread the love all around everyone getting a little piece of the pie. Gravity won 7 awards including Best Director for Alfonso Cuaron. 12 Years A Slave received 3 awards including the biggest prize of the night, Best Picture. There were so many other great moments at the awards from Lupita Nyong’o winning and giving that amazing acceptance speech to the selfie that broke Twitter and John Travolta having a stroke and completely butchering Idina Menzel’s name. You can find all of those moments on Indiewire and TVline. See the full list of winners below. Continue reading Oscars 2014

2014 Oscar Fashions


iwatch2much.comdresses

The 2014 Oscars had some wonderful fashion moments from Lupita Nyong’o to Charlize Theron. They also had a couple of “what the hell were they thinking?” moments. Here are my best and worst dressed of last night’s Academy Awards.

BEST DRESSED 

AMY ADAMS

iwatch2much.comAmyAdams2

Simple and just beautiful.

SANDRA BULLOCK

US-OSCARS-ARRIVALS

She’s wearing the same blue as Amy Adams but the dresses are completely different as well as the styling. This is Sandra Bullock’s best awards season look. She had been very hit or miss so I’m glad that she knocked it for the biggest of the award shows.

LUPITA NYONG’O

iwatch2much.comLupitaNyongoiwatch2much.comLupitaNyongo2iwatch2much.comLupitaNyongo4

She looked so good last night. I wasn’t a fan of the headband but that was about it.  I had to give you three views of the dress.  I love blue so it’s not a shocker that my favorite dresses last night were some variation of my favorite color.  Last night was her night and she delivered in every way possible beginning with this red carpet look.

CHARLIZE THERON

iwatch2much.comCharlizeTheronShe can do no wrong in my book. She consistently knocks it out of the park except for that time where she had a beautiful metallic gold dress but got a really bad spray tan at the 2004 Oscars where she won for her role in Monster. Black is also one of my favorite colors.

KATE HUDSON

2014 Oscar Nomimations


The 2014 Oscar nominations were presented this morning (5:30PST is entirely too early, Who chose this time?) by Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth and new Academy president, Cheryl Boone Isaacs.  Many of the nominations weren’t surprises, but some of the snubs were big ones (No love for the Coen Brothers, Tom Hanks, or Fruitvale Station but yay for Jonah Hill, Christian Bale and The Square). The most random nomination came from the Jackass movie, Bad Grandpa in the category of best makeup. Ok. Check out the full list of nominees after the jump.

71st Annual Golden Globe Awards


The 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards aired last night on NBC with hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. I enjoyed last night’s show. Tina and Amy are just sooo good together and should host everything.

Some of the best moments came from unexpected places (Emma Thompson drunk and throwing her shoes on stage) or took place on Twitter (Mia and Ronan Farrow’s tweets on Woody Allen during his tribute). There were also some surprises in the awards winners like Brooklyn Nine-Nine winning best comedy (YAY!!!) to Jennifer Lawrence winning best supporting actress in a motion picture (Noooooo, I love Jennifer Lawerence but Lupita Nyong’o was robbed!!). The only other surprise for me was Amy Adams win in the best actress motion picture comedy musical category.

“Tina and Amy are two of the most talented comedic writer/performers in our business and they were a major reason the Golden Globes was the most entertaining awards show of last season,” said NBC’s alternative programming president Paul Telegdy in a statement. “We’re elated they wanted to host together again and that they committed for the next two years.”

Last year’s Fey/Poehler-hosted show attracted nearly 20 million viewers, a 17 percent surge vs. 2012 (the increase among adults 18-49 was 28 percent).

Emmy Fashion 2013


Emmy fashion was a little underwhelming last night. I was a little disappointed with the fashion. Not much color and a lot of the dresses looked like stuff we have seen before. I need some people to change it up. I did find a couple that I did like so check them out in the gallery below.
