Oscar Best Couples: Colin Firth & Livia, plus RDJ, Jude Law & Susan Downey


Colin Firth winning his first Oscar was definitely one of the highlights last night. But I also loved that Colin seemed to take his time and enjoy the moment, and I LOVED the kiss he gave his wife when he won. It wasn’t slobbery and tacky, but it wasn’t brusque either. He gave her a real kiss, like, “I love you so much, my darling.” I’m getting a little teary. Sigh…


As for Livia’s dress… well… I didn’t hate it. I would have loved to see her in a jewel tone with her beautiful dark coloring, but she went with this “up-cycled Gary Harvey gown”. It was “reclaimed” from 11 different dresses. Interesting.


Also, my other pick for favorite Oscar couple (or ménage à trois): Susan Downey and Robert Downey Jr., plus Jude Law. Susan and RDJ did the red carpet thing together for the Oscars, but they picked up Jude for the after-parties, which I LOVE. I love that Jude and RDJ are totally boyfriends. And I love that Susan just deals with it. Seriously, Susan and RDJ are so beautiful together.

    They all looked lovely. Love both of these couples!!!

    Hmmmm First thought, Susan is so trying to arrange a 3way with Jude and RDJ…that could be my thought, I mean if I was Susan I would work that out some how.

    Susan looks fab. Love that black dress. Jude and RDJ look oh so yummy.

  3. brin says:

    Awww….Colin & his wife are a lovely couple (I even like her dress, somewhat).
    Wouldn’t we all want to be Susan Downey sandwiched between RDJ & Jude!

  4. tracking says:

    I feel like Livia is having posture issues. But both couples are so damn gorgeous and sweet, who cares.

  5. Happymom says:

    Love them all-but Livia (who I usually think looks great) really missed with this dress. The color is blah, and the strappy things look weird-and must feel strange hence her weird posture.

  6. KIM says:

    I want to be in that sandwiched between Jude & RDJ Yummmm !

  7. Gwen says:

    Love them all 😀

  8. Venus says:

    11 dresses & they couldn’t make it long enough? Love her, but hated the dress.

    And I do love Colin Firth Just The Way He Is — but a little hair product wouldn’t kill him.

  9. the original bellaluna says:

    With an honourable mention to Javi & Pene, right? 😉

    I saw a pic of Colin taken like 20 years ago, and the man gets better age! He looks more handsome now than he ever did then.

  10. Brittany says:

    Mrs. Downey = lucky

  11. Nanea says:

    I hated Livia’s shoes much more than the dress.

    But as usual in these past weeks when Colin picked up his 327 awards, she had the best accessory: her husband.

    I’d like RDJr and Jude for hosts next time, please!

  12. dee says:

    I now present your Academy Awards hosts for the year 2012: ROBERT DOWNEY, JR. and JUDE LAW!

  13. Ann says:

    Huh. Firth looks lost and sad. WTH?!!

  14. erica says:

    Jude law looked like old Hollywood sophisticated like Fred Astaire.

    Love Him !

  15. jill says:

    Jude Law and RDJ = ovaries explosion !!! [yes]

  16. Brittney says:

    Susan was wearing jewelry designed by Angelina Jolie… which lends credibility to that stupid Style by Jolie rumor. RDJ was cute about it on the red carpet… “so far we’re the most excited about Susan’s earrings.”

  17. jake says:

    Need more Jude and RDJ please !!!

  18. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    Livia didnt rock that dress because she looks all slouchy

    Luv RDJ,Susan and Jude all hanging out… yummy

  19. joyce says:

    Superheroes of the Night:RDJ&Jude Law
    Sooo much hotness!

  20. Solveig says:

    When I heard that Livia’s dress was made of different dresses I thought it was some kind of patchwork nightmare, but it was a nice gown, although the colour washed her out. And I also think that maybe her shoes were very uncomfortable because of her posture.
    RDJ and wife (and husband) were perfect.

  21. linda says:

    Robert Downy Jr.and Jude Law were dashing and snappy. Can’t get enough of them.

  22. Roxanne75 says:

    Just waiting for the Firth’s divorce. This is ALWAYS how it is. They are seen out and about and full of love and in the headlines so much and bam! That’s when it happens, just when you thought they were the most in love perfect couple.

  23. lucy says:

    Jude and RDJ = Champaine Life, baby lets’ toast it up

  24. Ann says:

    @Roxanne75: same here. I was just thinking how they don’t look happy inspite of all the Firth gushy-gushy.

  25. Obvious says:

    tonight my roommate and i start the Firth-athon! =DDD we plan on starting at the beginning of his career and work forward with anything NetFlix streaming has. in homage to a great actor-not that we have crushes on the best actor or anything…

  26. Minx2 says:

    Susan is the best thing that happened to RDJ. Livia missed with that dress (shoes are dreadful) but she’s a beautiful woman and she has Colin on her arm so it doesn’t matter what she wears. Colin, on the other hand, looks tired. I’m not surprised. They both need a vacation.

  27. flotus says:

    Kudos to RDJ for pulling himself up out of the depths of hell! In my opnion, the poster child for “Sobriety Living”!!!

  28. Andie says:

    Congratulations to the gorgeous, handsome, talented Colin on his win. His wife is a beautiful woman, but I think she should have worn a deep blue or raspberry tone. That dress is too pale and does nothing for her. But what the hell, she has Colin!

  29. Jeri says:

    Bravo! They’re wonderful.

  30. Camille says:

    Great post, love these couples. 😀

  31. dolores craeg says:

    jude and robert…unbeatable pair and jude is in a class all by himself. the man is talented, beautiful and elegant….what a combo.

  32. Bridget says:

    Colin Firth couldn’t look more bored and NOT in love with this wife.

  33. Lucy says:

    I love Colin Firth! I am so glad he won.

    Forever Mr. Darcy!

    ps: RDJ is awesome!

  34. fwozbo says:

    I want RDJ and Susan to have a baby already!

  35. Laura says:

    yeah i wouldnt blame her for wanting a three way with Jude Law and RDJ.
