Style Tuesday: Requisite Oscar Fashion Recap
I don’t like watching the Oscars. I can’t bear the thought of three hours of my life wasted listening to bland acceptance speeches. I do however like knowing who wins in the five big categories, especially in a year like this one when I’ve seen many of the nominated movies. Of course, I also like to look through the photos of who wore what, and how they wore it (I find the hair and accessories can be just as interesting).
So, after the winners were announced on Sunday evening, here are the two categories where I don’t like the outcome.
I saw 7 of the 10 nominees. I did not think the King’s Speech was best, in fact it was third or fourth on my list. My top pick was The Fighter.
Actress in a Leading Role
Of the two movies I saw in this category, I thought Michelle Williams was superior to Natalie Portman. Natalie Portman had to transform herself for the role, but Michelle Williams had to play a woman at two very distinct points in time, showing the transformation on screen. She was ultra-believable and it didn’t feel like she was acting. In fact, the movie was super-depressing as a result.
Now onto the good stuff. I’m no fashion critic, so let’s call this section, What Would Liisa Wear?
I thought Sharon Stone looked great (though maybe a little scary), Celine Dion looked ultra-elegant, Jennifer Hudson looked bold, and Scarlett Johansson looked pretty though her dress was horrible (except for the colour, which was gorgeous).
There you have it. You can now go about the rest of your day armed with this knowledge. But before you go, feel free to let me know your favourites. Anyone surprise you? And would you wear these looks?
