Why weren’t Brad and Angelina at the Oscars?

Maybe it is true that Brad and Angelina are in the process of adopting a boy from Vietnam, because they didn’t show up at the Oscars as expected last night. I was pretty disappointed, as I wanted to see what Angelina would be wearing and if she could manage to crack a smile. She seemed happy in pictures taken from her balcony looking down on Mardi Gras, so I thought that might extend to the Oscars, where Brad and Angelina were expected to make their third red carpet appearance in grand style.

Both Brad and Angelina appeared in movies that were nominated for Oscars. Angelina’s super-boring film with Matt Damon, The Good Shepherd, was only nominated for art direction, but Brad’s film Babel was considered by some to be the front-runner for best picture and was nominated in several other categories. It was expected that they would come to show support for Brad’s film at least. (Babel only ended up winning in the best musical score category.)

Maybe it was too soon after Angelina’s mother died. Brad has seemed to be understandably annoyed at paparazzi lately. He acted a little grumpy with them after Angelina’s mother died and was seen trying in vain to reason with them a bit later.

The official excuse is that Angelina is near Dafur on a UN peacekeeping mission, but I bet there’s something to that rumor that they’re adopting another child. We’ll have to see.

Here’s a link to pictures of Brad and Angelina at the Golden Globes.

And here’s a big picture post with examples of Angelina’s fashion from Oscars past.

    With all due respect Celeb, I really don’t care for these two people anymore. The whole adoption thing is ridiculous. What ever happened to having a normal 2.3 child family? I think the Mia Farrow thing is so weird. I wonder which celebrity father will marry his step daughter next? Can we say Woody Allen?

    She’s skinny as. Wouldn’t be surprised if she ‘wasn’t well’

  3. Carol says:

    She has lost a bunch of weight recently. Hopefully it’s just because of her mom dying and not something physical.

  4. FF says:

    I don’t know that it’s recent weight loss. She’s been gradually getting thinner and thinner since being with Brad.

  5. countrybabe says:

    Come on Mr. T think of something new.
    But I’m glad they didn’t go. It would have been all about them.
    It is kind of strange Celebitchy is missing them.

    They weren’t there? I didn’t even notice…

    Mr. T, if I had the money to afford help I’d have a dozen kids. Most of them would be adopted because I’ve done childbirth twice and it sucks. Some people just love kids.

    Maybe she’s just in Darfour and he didn’t feel like going alone and there is nothing to it? I think it would have been inappropriate to go so soon after her mom’s death unless one of them was nominated. He got an Oscar, btw, for the Departed.. his company produced it.

  9. Viv says:

    I didn’t realize that his company produced the Departed! I loved the first version and this one of course.

    C’mon girls, let’s give a big ol’ group hug to Mr. T. I just don’t think he’s feelin’ the love anymore. 🙁

    Wow, look at Angie’s lips in 2000 compared to 2004. All natural full lips my ass.

  12. Mr. T says:

    I feel the love. Anywho, I really don’t care about celebrity adoptions. Make them suffer like real people. Raise your own kids!

    She probably didn’t want to suffer anymore inane comments from Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet, can’t say I blame her

    I heard that Angelina was actually orbiting the planet destroying Earth bound meteors with her “Bitch vision”, while Brad and their brood were tied to a stake in the yard within reach of a food trough and water bottle.

  16. Other Karen says:

    Maybe Angelina didn’t like any of the dresses from St. John again. 😉

  17. julie says:

    Dear Manny.
    tee hee. You just made me giggle.

  18. Missy says:

    The B!tch looked just like Morticia from The Adams Family in 2000 with a lot of B-A-D facial plasic surgery. Obviously she got it fixed. Au natural my ass!!!

  19. stop the madness says:

    Look at all you haters.Hilarious! Angelina is a natural beauty.Get over it!

  20. Mr. T says:

    AJ is Skelator.

    I don’t think every company that puts up the money to get a film produced gets an Oscar. Never heard of that before
