I thought it was short, sweet, nice to have Billy Crystal back, Cirque du Soleil was amazing, and I loved the interviews clips with actors. Overall a good show.(all photos via imdb and Getty images)
And of course lots of pretty looks.
I think everyone agreed that Octavia Spencer was stunning. Her gown was gorgeous, fit her so well, and she won! What a sweet moment.
My other favorite look was Emma Stone with her floppy bow collar. She’s such a gorgeous lady and her bit with Ben Stiller was pretty funny.
All these flowy dresses caught my eye too…along with Esperanza Spalding’s hair. How great is that ‘do? And how beautiful was her tribute song?

There were definitely some looks I didn’t care for….like Maya Rudolph (and she looked so great on SNL the week before), Viola Davis (just wasn’t digging the top of the dress or the red hair on her), and Melissa McCarthy (she’s a curvy lady but there are definitely better looks for her).
But let’s focus on the bright spots here.
I totally loved Meryl Steep’s acceptance speech (my postpartum emotions got the best of me).
And I’m so happy The Artist took home many awards.
Have you seen the film?
It’s darling! It’s charming. I thought I would get sick of the “silence”….but after 10 minutes you forget that the actors aren’t talking because everyone is so charismatic and the music is wonderful. And seriously, how cute are these two? I absolutely fell in love with Argentine actress Berenice Bejo and her cute expressions. I hope we see more of her in the future.
If you haven’t seen The Artist, it’s going to be released on more screens this week. Get out on a date night and see it! Casey liked it too.
And he came home and downloaded a bunch of 1920s music.
And that’s a red carpet recap.
