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.
Simple and just beautiful.
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.
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.
She 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.
The 85th Annual Academy Awards are finally over. One of the best things about the night is of course the FASHION. It is one of the biggest nights for fashion and the ladies did not disappoint. Check out the gallery for my best and worst of the night.
Charlize Theron Couldn’t decide best dressed so it is a 3 way tie for me between Charlize, Stacy and Naomi. Worst dress is most definitely Anne Hathaway.
MTV movie awards are one of the most ridiculous of the many award shows out there, but they are always good for a few laughs. This year was hosted by Russell Brand again because no one else will dothis show.
This pre-show is a hot mess. Kat Graham (The Vampire Diaries) is a hot mess. Seriously Bonnie? What is with this terrible weave and your outfit is not any better. Ugh. Love the shoes though. Here is a transcription of her interview with Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield. Kat to Emma Stone – “I am here with the lovely Emma Stone and I think there is somebody hiding behind you.” Andrew – “I’m not hiding.” Kat – “You’re not hiding.” Andrew – “No.” Kat – “Oh, he’s just being Spidermanny and stuff.” Awkward laughter from everyone. WTH??
Yes FUN. I love their single “We Are Young.” Such a good song. It makes me think of some Queen songs. YESSSSSSSS they brought Janelle Monae out to do her part of the song. Continue reading 2012 MTV Movie Awards→
Snow White & The Huntsman is the new film based on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale. In this adaptation, Kristen Stewart plays, Snow White, the only person in the land fairer than the evil queen,played by Charlize Theron, who is out to destroy her. But the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth; Avengers, Thor, Cabin In The Woods) the queen orders to bring Snow White in from the woods to be killed winds up becoming her protector in a quest to vanquish the Evil Queen.
I said before that I was looking forward to this movie mostly because of Charlize and because Kristen Stewart didn’t speak at all. Well I saw the movie this past week and it was pretty ok. On a ratings scale, it would be a B-. Charlize is good as usual. She did her thing with this part and is clearly the best part of this movie. She is also like crazy beautiful. I just kept looking at her was just mesmerized. Chris Hemsworth is also nice to look at. I thought with what he was given, he did a good job. I also liked that they didn’t go into a full-blown love story with the huntsman and Snow White but just provided you with teases of one.
As for Kristen Stewart, I was loving that the trailer was actually pretty true to the movie in that Kristen Stewart didn’t have many lines in the movie. There so many long stretches of dialogue that didn’t include her that I was just trilled. She also was able to emote more at a couple of points something other than the bitch face that she has permanently stuck on.
I would recommend this movie because it has everything a good gothic fantasy movie should: good action, a superb villain and just a hint of a love story. Snow White & The Huntsman is in theaters now.
I’ve seen a lot of movies in the last couple of weeks that I haven’t had time to do posts on so I decided to do a quick one with all of them.
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows – I really enjoyed this movie as much as the first one. Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law’s chemistry is wonderful. The movie is everything the first one is and a little bit more. There is more mystery and intrigue. Noomi Rapace (The Girl With A Dragon Tattoo; Swedish version) really didn’t bring anything to the table wither character. I man she didn’t really have much to do for the film. See it if you liked the 1st one and if you didn’t like the first one then you won’t like this one.
Young Adult – I love Charlize Theron. She’s such a great actress. She plays Mavis, a completely delusional woman and the kind of chick I would have hated in high school. Mavis is was hot stuff in high school and now comes back to her home town thinking she still has it when in reality she is a complete mess. Patton Oswald is also wonderful in this movie. He plays Matt, a former classmate of Mavis’ who sees through all of her bs and calls her out on it. It’s pretty wonderful. This movie is another joint effort between Diablo Cody and Jason Reitman. Cody wrote the 2007 hit movie Juno and Reitman directed it. This movie has the same sort elements and flow like Juno but its not as cutesy and quirky as Juno was.
The Sitter stars Jonah Hill as the worst babysitter ever who takes 3 kids on the town and wild hijinks ensue. While this movie sounds like it would be terrible, it was actually pretty funny. I mean everything that happens has been done before and better but it is still worth seeing at a matinee. The kids definitely make this movie. They are some of the most ridiculous kids that I have seen in movies. Usually I dislike kids in movies because I feel that they just ruin things make everything go haywire and these kids did but they made me laugh and kept me entertained while everything was going down.
We Bought A Zoo stars Matt Damon and Scarlett Johannsen. Matt Damon plays a widow with 2 kids, who is trying to help the kids cope with the death of their mother while also grieving himself. He then impulsively buys a zoo and they have to find a way to save it and keep open. It’s pretty standard fair nothing special about it. This one is definitely a redbox rental or dollar theater movie. The only thing that I got out of this movie was that the little girl that is Matt Damon’s daughter, played by Maggie Elizabeth Jones, is one of the cutest things ever.
War Horse is a classic Spielberg film. Very picturesque, very sappy. The movie is basically what the trailer shows, a boy and his horse, set against the setting of rural England and World War I. I thought the movie was fine. It had a very Gone With The Wind look and feel to it. I don’t know animal movies just aren’t my cup of tea so I tend not to like them or try to see them. The acting was fine as well. I’m sure this will get nominated for a couple of BAFTAs and Oscars because its Spielberg and it has a victorious, sappy happy ending. If animals are your thing, go see it. For me its a take it or leave meh kind of movie.
The Artist is a black and white silent film about a silent film star who starts getting fazed out by the beginning of “talkies.” The film stars two french actors who are unknown to the states, Jean Dujardin and Berenice Bejo. I have never actually watched a silent film. (I know how can I be a movie junkie without seeing some of these old films. They are on my list of movies to watch. I’ll get to them at some point). The movie was really good. Sometimes we don’t pay attention to things in movies because the dialogue is there to tell you all you need to get a visual but with a silent film this is not the case and you must pay attention to everything from emotions playing on the face of the actors to how the people around them are reacting. I also saw that you can’t hide bad acting in a silent film. I feel that sometimes good dialogue can hide that someone is a terrible actor. This movie is a hard sell to many people but I liked it and would recommend it just as something different to watch. All the critics are saying this movie is the one to beat this awards season. I don’t know how true that is but I’m sure that it will be walking away with some awards.
Fairy tales are the new black apparently. There are so many fairy tale projects this year (Grimm on NBC and Once Upon A Time on ABC for example) that its become official that Hollywood has no new ideas. Universal and Relativity released their trailers for their respective Snow White projects this week. Universal’s project is Snow White and the Huntsman which stars Kristen Stewart (Twilight, Panic Room), Charlize Theron(Monster, Italian Job, Hancock), and Chris Hemsworth (Thor). The film is a twist to classic story in that the Huntsman (Hemsworth) is sent to kill Snow White (Stewart) by the evil queen (Theron) but he then soon becomes her protector and they all fight to take out the evil queen.
Relativity’s film is Mirror, Mirror which stars Lily Collins (The Blind Side, Abduction), Julia Roberts (Pretty Woman, Closer, Erin Brockovich) and Armie Hammer (The Social Network, J. Edgar). It is more of the classic story that we all know and love. Roberts plays an evil queen that steals control of the kingdom and has the princess (Collins) exiled. She gets the help of seven rebel dwarfs to win back her kingdom. Hammer plays Prince Alcott, the object of the princess’ affection.
So after watching the trailers I can say that I’ll definitely be seeing both movies but I’ll looking forward to Snow White and the Huntsman more because Charlize Theron looks amazing as the evil queen. Just so deliciously evil. I’ll see this movie despite of Kristen Stewart. You see they didn’t have her say anything in the trailer. The whole selling point of the movie is Theron. Mirror, Mirror reminds me of The Princess Bride. It looks like it has that same campy, fun factor that Princess Bride had. Hell it looks very 80s. I’ll see this because there are actors in it that I like. I watch everything Julia Roberts and I have been enjoying Armie Hammer’s movies since he did TheSocial Network last year. Mirror, Mirror hits theaters March 16th, 2012 and Snow White and The Huntsman will be out June 1st, 2012. Which will you see? Snow White and the Huntsman? Mirror,Mirror? Neither?
