It’s Got to be the Morning After: Post-Academy Awards

Anne Hathaway at the BAFTA Awards

If you watched the Academy Awards last night, let's do some virtual water-cooling: what was the biggest moment for you?

Did you think anyone was robbed of an award? Or given one for suspect reasons? Who looked the best? The worst? What was your highlight or lowlight?

I watched (of course!), and thought that Jessica Chastain looked gorgeous, if monochrome. I liked Anne Hathaway's gown, but the nipple darts were disconcerting. I hated what Halle Berry was wearing, and thought a lot of the other stars were just meh, albeit pastel/white meh, not black meh (which is what they usually meh in).

I didn't see ANY of the nominated films, and I have to admit to still being mad that Brokeback Mountain lost to Crash.

Jessica Chastain was my Best Dressed too. Also really loved Stacy Kiebler's gown; she and George Clooney looked great together as usual.

Still reeling over the Best Director award, that was definitely an upset. Disappointed Argo won Best Pic even though I really enjoyed it (think Ben not getting the Best Director nod was the best thing that could've happened to Argo). LOVED that Jennifer Lawrence won Best Actress and that Daniel Day-Lewis scored Best Actor. There's a gif floating around of Bradley Cooper and Hugh Jackman rushing to JLaw's assistance when she tripped on the way up to the podium that's possibly my favorite thing this morning. What else? Oh, was not a fan of Anne Hathaway's gown at all, and thought her speech was as insufferable as all her other speeches this award season.

Though the show itself was...not great (ran too long, Seth McF's jokes weren't my thing, too much Chicago), overall I found the evening very entertaining. I thought this past year was a fantastic one for movies and performances so I had fun with this awards season.

I loved the dresse styles but not a fan of the pastels. I admit to " watching" a majority of the oscars on my twitter time line. I found that more entertaining.

Anne Hathaway's dress. OMG. I was embarassed for her. Jennifer Hudson rocked it as usual. She has come so far in her career.

I think Seth MacFarlane is unusually handsome. I usually think of people who do animation as fair to middling looking. I was shocked Argo won for best movie because I was expecting a sweep for Lincoln in the Actor, Director and Film category. I was happy that movie won because it wasn't a predictable shoe-in. Michelle Obama's silvery-metallic dress (a definite trend of the night) was beautiful, and her presenting just made my entire night!

I thought Jennifer Hudson, Shirley Bassey and Adele's performances were chills inducing. I sometimes forget how wonderful a singer Jennifer Hudson is. I liked the musical/James Bond tribute because I'm such a fan of musicals. I also liked the Les Miz performance. The supporting cast definitely has stronger voices to then the leads. Samantha Banks brings me to tears.

I thought the best dressed was Zoe Saldana and Naomi Watts. Naomi's dress was creative, different, and sexy. I thought the best dressed male was a tie between George Clooney and Ben Affleck. Did you notice the unusual amount of men there with full beards? I thought George's full grey beard was very sexy and dapper. I thought Hugh Jackman and his wife, Debora Lee Furness, were the best dressed couple with his and hers tuxes. (I loved the tone on tone pattern of his performance jacket.)

I hate to put her in this category, but I thought Anne Hathaway was the worst dressed. Her dress was too pale and wrinkly. I thought her performance dress was marvelous. I also thought Jennifer Aniston is just boring when it comes to the hair and the dress shilouttes (sp?). Bradley Cooper's hair and facial hair gave him the look of an Old West villain although I did like the three piece tux.

Like this post, I found the Oscars to be too long and I kind of zone out during the technical awards.

Hated Amy Adams' dress and Anne Hathaway's, ugh! I wonder sometimes whether actresses are afraid to push back when designers work up certain dresses for them? I don't believe designers are always perfect but perhaps the actresses are conditioned to believe otherwise.

Love Jennifer Lawrence, I have a girl crush on her and I thought her dress was wonderful. I missed her falling down and have to look for that GIF, mainly to see the menz coming to her aid :-) Haven't seen Silver Linings Playbook yet, I'm so behind on my movies!

@wsl0612 -- Here's the gif of the guys rushing to her rescue, though it turned out to be unnecessary because she's awesome. And here's a post from Vulture about why JLaw's fall was one of the best moments of the night (which I think I must agree with).

@BrooklynShoeBabe -- Loved Zoe Saldana's gown too.

My favorite moment of the night was Channing Tatum and Charlize Theron dancing!

@DianeN -- They were good! And it was refreshing. Hadn't expected it.

I am surprised nobody has commented on Helen Hunt's H&M dress. It was nothing special but I was happy to see that she can be a normal person as well as hollywood personality
