Truth to tell, I'm not really that into it. I watch sporadically, and tonight I only watched the first and last half hours. I find that more than half of the films mentioned, I never heard of.

So having put out my disclaimers, I'll admit that I used to like Billy Crystal more than I do now. Tim Gunn is as fabulous as ever, and I bow to his judgement on the fashion questions. (See, I'm not really into fashion, either.)

I still love Meryl Streep, though!

I do think that Crystal is the most skillful, reliable host they have had, but he is an older man now (the hair dye doesn't fool anyone) and I used to find his humor more free and agile than it is these days. It seems rare for comics to stay loose as they age. Still, he can ad-lib and fill in dead time like few others.

Among the lady presenters, Angelina Jolie was the skinniest by many kilos per inch of height. Geez, those poor little arms!

didn't watch most of it just the beginning. Just saw the Help and it only got one award so glad I didn't waste time watching it.

This was the most low key Oscars I have seen. People didn't really respond well to Billy, and the hysterical vignette about the focus group for The Wizard of Oz got almost no laughs...it was like the audience was stuporous. I was left entirely cold by the night's leading award getter - The Artist, and so this wasn't my best viewing either. Meryl Streep made it worth staying up until the end though! I was amazed by the way The Help was almost bypassed - what a terrific film that was, what a wonderfully acted story, and what a good time to award it with a whole lot more than it got. I always skip the very superficial discussion of what people wore because who cares, they all looked great to me!

I love Meryl Streep...... but why does she always wear the worst dresses ? that gold, long-sleeved number managed once again to hide her nice body under lawers of sparkle. Frumpy, frumpy....

Ditto! I love Meryl too, but she needs a stylist.

I missed it. The local paper doesn't have a TV section any more. Instead, I was watching something on PBS about whales, which was actually pretty interesting.
Saw pictures of Berenice Bejo in a pale green Elie Saab (?) dress that seemed to have some sort of lace overlay. It looked like seafoam. I have no idea who she is, and I have not heard of the designer, but I couldn't take my eyes off it.

I liked Berenice's dress too but I noticed she made one of the worst dressed lists. They said the color aged her, and in all honesty, watching the show, I assumed she was une femme d'une certain age myself. Seems she's quite young.
