2016 Oscars Open Post: Hosted by pregnant Anne Hathaway

FFN_GAMR_HATHAWAY_A_2272016_51981820

Here is your 2016 Oscars Open Post, hosted by forever Oscar-winner Anne Hathaway. Our beloved Annie is knocked up these days, as you can see in these photos. She was photographed leaving the Armani pre-Oscar party in Beverly Hills last night. Armani was celebrating Leonardo DiCaprio, because of course. While Annie probably came out because she’s tight with the Armani label, I’d like to think she came out to celebrate Leo because Leo is the Annie Hathaway of the Oscars this year: inevitable and annoying. In fact, I would argue that Leo is much, much worse than Annie ever was. Also, I’ll forever associate Annie with the Oscars because remember when she hosted with James Franco? God, what were they thinking?

Annie’s not scheduled to present, but who knows? Maybe she’ll come out for some parties tonight. She’s been keeping a lower profile throughout her pregnancy, but everyone comes out for the VF party, right? Anyway, we’ll have full coverage of the Oscars tomorrow, and we’ll be trying to get to some of the best party photos tomorrow too, but the party coverage will probably extend to Tuesday as well.

You can see this year’s Oscar nominations here, and if you want to review all of the #OscarsSoWhite drama, just go here to our Oscars category. I would imagine this year’s telecast will have great ratings, just because people will be tuning in to see what Chris Rock says in his opening monologue. Plus, the Academy has made a point of getting some racially diverse presenters. We’ll see. Please come back tomorrow (bright and early!!!) for our Oscar coverage.

Celebitchy & I will be tweeting throughout the red carpet and Oscars telecast as well – go here for my Twitter and here for Celebitchy’s Twitter.

    Whether Leo wins or he loses,social media will be so lit tonight. can’t wait!!!

    • Bettyrose says:

      I want #madmax to win so badly, and I can’t wait for the Oscar clip from a movie with virtually no dialogue. #kickassbabes-and-onehotguy-butnodialogue

    • Dangles says:

      There’s only two things I’m interested in – Chris Rock’s opening bit and a Leo win.

  2. Locke Lamora says:

    Leonardo is more annoying than Anne. And she did well as an Oscar host, considering James just left her hanging. This hairstyle looks great on her.

    Giuliana looks suprisingly okay. I like the dress, but not the hair and earrings.

    • chelsea says:

      In what way is he more annoying than Anne? Maybe he just knows how to campaign.

      • Mia4s says:

        More annoying? Not sure. As annoying? Yes. That sudden “oh I share this with the struggle of the Native Americans” that came out of nowhere at the Golden Globes? Grossly cynical and calculating after people started mocking the how HARD filming was “campaign”. I’d be pressed….but since the Oscars are meaningless BS anyway he fits right in. :-)

      • Bridget says:

        Considering that DiCaprio has been passed over 4 times already, I think it’s pretty safe to say he doesn’t know how to campaign. Not to mention that his campaign this year has become a complete joke. He’s going to win, but it’s because people just wants to get it over with and no one else really got in the race.

    • Pepper says:

      He’s way less annoying. When he’s win’s he’s not going to go up there and do a whole ‘Golly gosh, who would have thought little old me would win’ routine, and he’s not going to spend the next few months acknowledging and responding to the backlash against him (which is what made Hathaway really annoying).

  3. Locke Lamora says:

    I read today that The Reverant borrowed heavily from Andrey Tarkovsky’s movies. Is that true?

  4. KB says:

    Love Abraham Attah on the red carpet

  5. gwen says:

    I can’t begin to imagine the pressure Chris Rock is feeling right about now.

    • Bettyrose says:

      By this point, his monologue is written and well rehearsed. He’s about to make media history and it’s probably the high of a lifetime. (and yeah I know he’s hosted before but now the world is ready, waiting, and hoping for the real Chris Rock).

  6. Tiffany says:

    Anne hosting the Oscars gave me a whole new appreciation and respect for her. I thought she was a pro the entire evening and carried the dead weight that was Franco.

  7. A Fan says:

    She looks great! Cute and comfortable dress; really good colour on her. Flattering haircut/style.

    [*A win from the ankles up.*]

  8. Nev says:

    Alicia looks so pretty.

    • Locke Lamora says:

      I think she looks horrible. Afwul colour, awful dress, awful hair, even the earings are bad. The bottom of the dress looks like a duvet.
      She’s such a pretty woman, and looked so good at the Globes and SAGs, and she pulls this for the Oscars?

      • Laurabb says:

        Yeah, I’m not loving her look. I expected a bit more from her as I think she usually makes great choices.

      • lisa2 says:

        That dress just feels like such a let down. I was expecting her to bring the glamour. The dress just feels very flat.

      • Minxx says:

        The duvet! I was thinking the same thing :) Underwhelming. And the hair is very basic too.

      • lunchcoma says:

        Yeah, I don’t understand that dress choice. She’s lovely in almost anything, but it’s one of the weaker dresses she’s worn all awards season.

    • Anon says:

      I’m kind of disappointing I like this dress but it’s clearly weak, why wear this one at the Oscars. I’m surprised.

    • Carmen says:

      She is pretty but that dress is unattractive. I hate mullet dresses, especially when they’re all poufy in the front.

    • Nanea says:

      She looks like a just-hatched Easter chick.

    • Elsie Otter says:

      Alicia is pretty, but that dress looked cheap. If someone had told me she bought that dress at the mall, I wouldn’t be surprised.

  9. Anon says:

    Alicia Vikander … whoaa she’s a dream in yellow. Well edit the length of the dress is not my thing.

  10. Locke Lamora says:

    I hate the shoulders/sleeves on Mindy’s dress. I just saw the back, the back is even worse.
    Sam Smith is one of those people who just look so much better with a few more kilograms on them.
    Vergara looks even worse than usual, which is expected considering she’s wearing Marchesa.

    • KB says:

      Did you notice something was off with Mindy’s mouth? It looks like she got lip injections or something. Very rubbery.

      When they said Sofia was in Marchesa, I just thought “OF COURSE that hideous dress is Marchesa.”

  11. Freddy Spaghetti says:

    Anne looks amazing and compared to Leo’s campaign, hers was nothing. I’m rooting for anyone to beat him because I think his I “deserve” it shtick is so annoying.

  12. megs283 says:

    Just saw a peak of Daisy Ridley- she looks stunning!

  13. KB says:

    Damn, Saoirse! So unexpected and so beautiful!

  14. bettyrose says:

    Oh, Whoopi, you used to matter. Good bye.

  15. Luciana says:

    AnnE looks AMAZING!
    So far I’m not impressed by any look. I like Alicia Vikander’s Belle gown but the material looks cheap. Saoirise (spell?) looks great in that green Calvin Klein. Noami Watts and Olivia Munn look really good too.

    • Luciana says:

      New favourite: Julianne Moore in Chanel. A goddess!

    • Elsie Otter says:

      Olivia Munn? Do you mean Olivia Wilde? I thought Olivia Munn looked terrible. Her plastic surgery made her beautiful face look wonky, and she looked way too skinny. She said she lost 12lbs – she did not have 12 pounds to lose!

      • gwen says:

        Really noticeable what Olivia’s done to her once not only beautiful face but interesting face, now she looks like every other pretty Hollywood girl.
        Damn shame she felt the need to do this.

      • Luciana says:

        I quite like her dress and makeup. I have no idea how she looked before hahaha
        One who looks awful is the American Citizen.

  16. Carmen says:

    Holy moly, Robin Roberts is gorgeous!

  17. Tiffany says:

    Diane Warren shows that when you are that successful, you have zero f***s to give and still be awesome.

  18. Jayna says:

    Anne looks so beautiful.

    Kim K, this is how you do it.

  19. Minxx says:

    Saoirse looks gorgeous, very glamorous dress, nice styling.
    Naomi Watts looks beautiful, gorgeous dress, same thing Patricia Arquette. Olivia Wilde’s dress looks like an apron – I like the “wings” in the back but the parting of the fabric in the front is not nice.

  20. Koolkitty says:

    Love Saoirse’s dress, hair, and makeup, but the earring throw me.

  21. bettyrose says:

    Patricia Arquette FTW!

  22. Minxx says:

    I like Olivia Munn’s dress a lot, fantastic color on her. Jennifer Jason Leigh looks quite nice and fresh, I like the dress.

    • lucy2 says:

      I like Olivia’s too. She bugs me so I was loathe to admit it, and then saw it was a Stella McCartney, which I really don’t want to admit to liking! What is happening?!?

  23. Locke Lamora says:

    JJ Leigh and Brie both look bad. What a hideous belt. Margo looks okay.
    I like Rooney’s dress. Weird, but it works.

  24. Laurabb says:

    Brie looks lovely, great color, but I feel a little let down by her as well.

  25. NUTBALLS says:

    Naomi Watts is my favorite so far. Love her dress and her Liev-sized accessorizing.

    Saoirse Ronan is a close second. Love her looking a bit more edgy.

  26. Bridget says:

    My face looks numb just looking at Olivia Munn. Step back from the Botox!

  27. Pancake says:

    I don’t like her – don’t like, not hate – but she looks really pretty with the longer hair and warmer colours over all. She gets that pasty, washed-out look easily. Warm colours, Anne. And hair.

  28. Josefina says:

    God damn, Heidi Klum. God damn.

  29. KB says:

    Really short video of Cate on Twitter, looks like it’s gonna be another win for her Red Carpet wise

    Armani seafoam green, feathers…sounds atrocious but she looked gorgeous! No full length shot of her though, so fingers crossed.

  30. Jayna says:

    Naomi Watts is perfection.

  31. Anon says:

    Alicia is on training twitter, we all love making comparison with Disney princess, Alicia Belle Vikander.

  32. Minxx says:

    I’m sorry but I’m not loving Brie’s look – the dress is not the best choice for her and the hair is just bad – flat and underwhelming. She should have had waives and a side part.

    • KB says:

      It’s just a little underwhelming for someone who is likely to be standing on stage holding an Oscar

      • Locke Lamora says:

        It’s plain ugly.

      • lucy2 says:

        I always feel a little bad when a winner has chosen a lousy dress, as the images will live forever! Hers is definitely a bad choice for a shoo-in winner. Personally I would have gone with something simple and classic.

    • NUTBALLS says:

      I agree about her hair… waves would have been more appropriate for tonight. I like the color of the dress and the belt, but the styling and her hair are a bit meh.

  33. Mia4s says:

    What a dull year. Some good dresses…no greats (Saiorse’s might be great, need to think on it). Overall just…fine across the board. Oh and for god’s sake Rooney Mara that look was interesting and cutting edge…when you first did it four years ago. Now? Boring and bland.

  34. Josefina says:

    Robotics have gone such a long way. For a minute I thought Henry Cavill was an actual person.

    On the other side of the coin, Bryan Cranston is everything. Does anyone not love him?

  35. Locke Lamora says:

    what is that neckline on Ashley Graham. Jesus.

  36. lisa2 says:

    Not much has been impressive so

    far.. I don’t understand it.. I’m trying not to go to sleep.

    Kerry Washington’s dress is not that great to me. That leather is just not working.

  37. Anon says:

    Usually I’m the one defending Rooney Mara’s look but I have to say this one is boring it became to predictable the makeup, the dress … pff

  38. KB says:

    I am so in love with Cate Blanchett. Stunning. Always.

  39. NUTBALLS says:

    Jacob Tremblay showing off his Star Wars sock action… what a cutie pie.

  40. Anon says:

    Matt Damon shading the hell out of Leo Decaprio

  41. Kate says:

    Hasn’t someone already worn Julianne Moore’s dress?

    • KB says:

      I know what you’re talking about, but I can’t think of where I’ve seen it. I’m thinking it was someone kind of waifish like a Natalie Portman or something. I don’t think it’s exact but that embellished thing has been done before.

      • Kate says:

        Yeah those straps are what I am remembering but I honestly can’t recall who might have worn it.

        Glad I’m not nuts!

      • KB says:

        Kendall Jenner wore it on the runway…I guess that’s it? I feel like I saw it a while ago on someone else though.

  42. Minxx says:

    Hate Rachel McAdams’ dress, just hate it.

  43. paolanqar says:

    ok that’s it. I’m going to bed.if Cate Blanchett is wearing THAT all the others can only be even worse.
    wtf though. Cate looks like she came straight from the Little mermaid movie and brought some souvenirs from the beach as well.

  44. Locke Lamora says:

    This is the worst RC ever.

  45. Luciana says:

    Reese Whiterspoon looks awful. She has the money but not the taste.

  46. Tania says:

    I loved Cate’s dress!

  47. Tiffany says:

    Oh Jared Leto, you stupid looking hipster.

  48. Anon says:

    You know what I LIKE what Lady Gaga is wearing

  49. lucy2 says:

    I’m not watching, just scrolling through E’s photos. I don’t know if I love or hate Cate Blanchett’s. Shockingly I don’t hate Chrissy Tiegen’s Marchesa. The color of Rachel McAdams is nice on her but the dress is all wrinkled from sitting.
    Favorites: Tina Fey, Jennifer Garner, Olivia Munn, Naomi Watts, Patricia Arquette, Saoirse Ronan (unexpected, great color)
    Dislike: Rooney Mara, Brie Larson (gorgeous color, but the design, yikes), Heidi Klum, Olivia Wilde, Alicia V.

  50. Luciana says:

    Someone can explain me Kate Winslet’s dress? OMG !

  51. Carmen says:

    This red carpet is a big fat yawn.

  52. cakecakecake says:

    Cate Blanchett looks gorgeous

  53. paolanqar says:

    Gaga’s dress makes her boobs look even saggier than usual. Jared Leto’s teletubbies eyes are about to eat my soul.
    Freaky

  54. nn says:

    Cate Blanchett always wears these etheral ‘pretty’ dresses that are usually far too young for her.
    She has an edgy face, sort of harsh angles, strong nose, she would look so much better playing that up instead of going for the princess-y dresses that she always wears. Same thing with the colors, always light hues that tend to wash her out. She needs more strong colors like black, navy blue,dark green and red.
    Idk if she thinks the soft colors and fabrics will soften her features but they don’t, they either wash her out or highlight her face in the worst ways.

    • KB says:

      I think she wears those colors because of her skin tone. A lot of pale actresses do that (Rooney Mara, Saoirse until tonight!) I think Cate actually pulls it off though.

  55. bettyrose says:

    LMAO @ Leo “I was born in East Los Angeles.”

    Cue Weird Al: “I was boooorn in East L.A. . . “

    • Dangles says:

      I think you mean Cheech Marin.

      • bettyrose says:

        The movie was Cheech, didn’t Weird Al record the song? Well, either way, according to Wikipedia, Leo was born and raised in Hollywood, not East L.A., so someone needs to take him to task for saying that.

  56. Carmen says:

    What in holy hell is that leather top mess Kerry Washington is wearing? Whoever styles Olivia Pope should style KW. she has the worst taste on the red carpet I ever saw in my life. And she’s wearing too much eyeliner.

    • lucy2 says:

      I don’t get it either, she always looks gorgeous on the show, and her red carpet choices are always odd and uncomfortable looking. That leather top is strange. I’ve often thought she should have the stylist from the show do her event styling too.

    • Josefina says:

      She has AWFUL style. Such a shame, because she has a very elegant look and a great figure. It’s like she tries to look bad.

  57. Goobie says:

    Mark my words, she is going to have a Boy.

  58. Tiffany says:

    Robin Roberts. Damn, woman. Looking good.

  59. lucy2 says:

    Nancy O’Dell looks like she got trapped in a wind tunnel in 1994.
    Charlize’s dress and hair combo is a bit severe, but she makes it work better than most.

    I think Saoirse, Tina Fey, Olivia Munn, and Jen Garner are my favorites.

  60. Jayna says:

    I loved Isla Fisher’s look.

    Olivia Munn is a favorite.

    I like Jennifer Garner’s gown, but not her hair, I think.

    I like Gaga’s, but she needs some support. But, still, I think it’s my favorite of the red carpet. Very glamorous.

    Rooney Mara’s I actually love on her if her dark hair was down to offset all the white going on, white against white skin.

    Heidi Klum’s, what the … ?

  61. Tiffany says:

    The RC has shown me this year is that some of these celebrities are getting paid to wear this crap. There is no way that they would look in the mirror and think these looks were okay for the biggest event of the year. No way they volunteer to wear it for free. No way.

  62. paolanqar says:

    i’m not even going to take notice of Heidi Klum’s frumpy messiness from the 80s but… what the hell is she doing at the Oscars?

  63. Locke Lamora says:

    Jennifer Lawrence also looks awful.

  64. Deedee says:

    Great site.

    What is Heidi alum wearing? Honest to god, who can have any credibility as a fashion icon and wear that dress? Tim Gunn, where are you when you’re needed?

  65. Carmen says:

    Ugh. This red carpet was a combination of a snoozefest and a snore-a-thon. Except for Naomi Watts, all the dresses were just meh. There wasn’t even anything outstandingly awful. Just boring. Adios everybody, me voy.

  66. Dangles says:

    So why do they have separate categories for men and women?

  67. bettyrose says:

    Uh, that was the same Chris Rock that did Nat X on SNL? It was watered down and limousine liberal approved, but maybe there’s more coming?

  68. OriginallyBlue says:

    Charlie Theron looks amazing

  69. Bridget says:

    So. Thoughts on Chris Rock?

    • bettyrose says:

      Eh, I posted above, but now I’m so disgusted that Straight Outta Compton lost best original screenplay that I can’t even. It swept the non-Oscar awards and was hands down the best movie I saw in 2015.

      • Bridget says:

        There were some good parts, and some not so good parts. I hated the bit about Jada, it felt mean.

      • Marty says:

        I’d really wish he’d realize that PoC can be concerned about more than one issue at a time. That was a weak a** line.

    • yogapants says:

      He went there . . . and there . . . and there. Brilliant!

    • Tiffany says:

      It went just the way you expect, funny and insightful.

    • Mia4s says:

      For the Oscars, a good shot. I have no idea why people thought it would be earth-shattering. Again…this is the Oscars.

      I really wish he’d remembered that it is more than just Black people who want opportunities. I understand his routine, but his monologue was sadly exclusionary of other minorities.

    • Dangles says:

      He came across as an apologist for the Academy. Disappointing.

    • AlmondJoy says:

      Hated it. Underwhelmed and unimpressed. He BARELY took it there.

  70. Bridget says:

    My best dressed: Rachel McAdams, Cate Blanchette, and Naomi Watts, with special mention going to Saorse Ronan and Alicia Vikander.

  71. Josefina says:

    Is it necessary the presenters read the annotations on the scripts?

  72. Tara says:

    So far I like the dresses Cate Blanchet, Isla Fisher, Sophie Turner, Sophia Vergara, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Rooney Mara, Emily Blunt, Olivia Munn, Andra Day, and someone named Dorith Mous wore. Sandy Powell’s outfit is, as the kids say, “perfection.”

    The bad, boring or ugly: Heidi Klum, Brie Larson, Anne Hathaway, Reese Witherspoon, Olivia Wilde, Tina Fey, Saoirse Ronan, Jennifer Garner, Alicia Vikander, and all the standard issue mermaid dresses.

    Not perfect but interesting and generally flattering: Christie Tiegen and Julianne Moore. Daisy Ridley’s dress would’ve been much better with a different neckline. Same with Saoirse’s.

    Robin Roberts’ dress isn’t my thing, but she wears it well.

  73. smee says:

    So instead of seriously addressing the race issue, they’re doing a parody montage with Whoopi? Effedup.

  74. TotallyBiased says:

    Love LOVE Brie Larson’s dress. Love the colour, really like the silhouette on her. Way better than anything else she’s worn this weekend. Not impressed with her hair, but I’m not sure I ever am.
    Really noticing how different some dresses/people look in different pics. I guess it’s all about angles and lighting, but sometimes you’d swear it’s a different dress.

  75. Eggland's worst says:

    While I think Chris Rock is funny, if I watch any more of this baloney, I will through me tv out the window. Thank god a new episode of The Walking Dead is on. I can watch that Jesus guy.

  76. Marty says:

    He brought out Stacy Dash. I’m done for the night. Someone can fill me in tomorrow.

  77. Tiffany says:

    Alicia won. Countdown to her and Fassbender breaking up in 3,2,1…..he does not strike me as someone who is supportive. Ah, she is better off.

  78. Deedee says:

    Loved Sam Smith.

    Hated that they used Bowie’s Starman for music to the Martian Montage.

    • bettyrose says:

      I hear you, but the whole time I was watching that pointless film, my bf and I were like “WTF with the disco? Why aren’t they playing Bowie?” And then they did play Starman, and by then we were like, this movie doesn’t deserve Bowie.

  79. Dangles says:

    Wow. Mad Max has sprung out of the blocks. That’s three Oscars already.

    • Tiffany says:

      They are all technical’s and that is fine because they left every other nominee in the dust. The BP or Director will be the big surprise.

      • msd says:

        I’m sooooo glad it won Production Design especially. It left all the others for dead in that category. I’d like it to win editing too but The Big Short might grab that. Director would be great too but I think it’s no chance for Best Pic.

      • Tiffany says:

        @msd. It won editing as well.

  80. InVain says:

    Is it just me or did Jen Garner look great when presenting with Benicio???! He looked pretty goos too. I think she’s usually pretty blah…but I thought her makeup/hair/jewelry and dress were on point!

    Yay for Mad Max!!

  81. InVain says:

    Hello Rachel McAdams….what an amazing color for her. That leg…. though no one did it like AJ.

  82. Tiffany says:

    Roger Deakins really is the Susan Lucci of the Academy Awards.

  83. bettyrose says:

    Can we just agree that Angela Basset honoring Black History Month with a tribute to Jack Black is the best thing to ever happen?

  84. Tiffany says:

    Can I just say, winners for Mad Max are awesome. They just radiate geniune happiness for the win.

  85. Sarah01 says:

    That’s the best dress I’ve ever seen Anne wear, it’s simply gorgeous and she looks great!

  86. Louise177 says:

    What is the point of the thank you scroll? It’s too small and fast to actually read.

  87. Tiffany says:

    So they are cutting down winner speeches to 10 seconds, but several minutes of other,,,,,,,things?

    Okay Academy.

    • InvaderTak says:

      Yeah they could cut the crap and make this thing an hour or so long. This is as bad as sitting through a full blown Catholic wedding. This is supremely tedious.

    • Dangles says:

      I know. I’d rather hear more from the winners and have less of the other crap. The winners might actually have something interesting to stay if they were forced to just blurt out quick thank you lists.

  88. KB says:

    Wth was the camera doing as Patricia arquette spoke? So awkward. And the walk and talk thing they had Cate, Jared Leto, and whoever he presented with was terrible too.

  89. Louise177 says:

    First shocker of the night for Best Supporting Actor.

  90. SusanneToo says:

    YES!!! Mark Rylance won BSA. My choice since the day the film opened!

    • TotallyBiased says:

      I’m doing a happy dance, too! I can’t believe there are people on Twitter flipping out over this and BOOING it!

  91. Bridget says:

    You could see people busting open those boxes of girl scout cookies – considering that the Oscars are traditionally food-less except for the green room, people must be STARVED.

    Also, I know it’s not the intent, but I love that it supported the Girl Scouts. I can’t believe some people actually boycott them.

  92. Tiffany says:

    Kate Capshaw. Please, I beg you, stop messing with your face.

  93. Odesa says:

    Lady Gaga, amazing performance. Wow

  94. Lady D says:

    Lady Gaga performance made me cry.

  95. SusanneToo says:

    Well, that was ghastly. Lady Gaga, I mean.

  96. Carol says:

    Am I going to hell? I thought Lady Gaga’s performance was horrible, and the song was bad. What was she doing with all her punches and leg kicks? It could have been powerful (although such a weak song), but quickly turned into parody.

    • KB says:

      I felt like the survivors were just being used as props for Gaga’s THEATRICAL performance. Like it wasn’t about them at all, even with those lyrics, it was all about her performance of the song and how grand she is.

      • Jayna says:

        I fell asleep.

        It’s an average song, but I thought if she sat at the piano and sang the hell out of it, i would probably be a good performance.

        So that’s not what happened?

      • InvaderTak says:

        @Jayna: No, it was more self serving and cornball than her Bowie “tribute”. She had some kind of dumb affection to her singing voice throughout it too. She needs to fall out of the public consciousness now. She has no self awareness or sincerity to her at all.

        @InvaderTak, I just went to Vanity Fair Mag. and watched it.

        Horrible. I’ve seen her sing that song twice, and both times were far better than this one with her mugging and overly theatrical, trying to work herself up for the performance emotionally but felt put on to me. Thus it didn’t move me at all because she was trying to force me to be moved.

        The last time I saw a performance of the song it was more moving because it was none of those things, just sitting simply at the piano sung with more dignity, none of her drama like the Oscars, and less affectation on her vocals also.

        It started off promising, but like the Grammys, went downhill.

      • InvaderTak says:

        @Jayna: That’s why I’m so ticked off about it. I don’t like Gaga much anyway, but I certainly won’t trash anyone for sincerely doing something to try and help others. I tried, but I just can’t get over the self serving feeling I get from her. She couldn’t just sit at the piano, play and sing and let the survivors come out. She had to be moving as much as she could in the crowd of them, throwing her wig around, standing up at the piano and pointing. No. Just no. And I thought the survivors were being used as props, especially with the body writing. That’s so overused it’s just corny IMO.

        Edit: and one of her stans is telling me to listen with my heart now. Awesome. *eyeroll*

        Invadertak completely agree. Hated her performance, especially since this issue is a very important one. She made it all cheesy and yucky. please go away Gaga you are really super duper annoying and self absorbed.

      I support this statement. LOVED the Star Wars soundtrack, and appreciated the subtleties that apparently escaped so many, but this was well deserved.

      Bet people don’t realize this is (astonishingly) his first competitive Oscar.
      And it was no consolation prize–the sound track is the ONLY thing I liked about Hateful Eight!

        The Good, the Bad and The Ugly came on the other night. The music was mesmerizing. He is quite talented and yes this being his first Oscar surprises me.

    This is ridiculous. How many awards do they have left? Good grief. I was just waiting to see if Leo won.

  99. Odesa says:

    Yikes, people are so heartless! I found lady Gaga very moving. Her voice sounded amazing. Whatever you think of her costumes and antics, she has a lot of talent. The survivors coming on stage was very moving, I actually teared up, which is pretty unusual for me.

    • InvaderTak says:

      Having a different opinion of a music performance doesn’t make dissenters heartless.

      • Odesa says:

        So negative! Sometimes you just have to close your eyes and enjoy music with your heart. Of course everyone can have their own opinion.

    Could Leo have run to the stage any faster? He barely hugged or shook anybody’s hand.

  101. Tiffany says:

    All joking aside, I am happy for Leo. Now go away, brouse a VS catolog and find a girlfriend.

  102. InVain says:

    Wow…Spotlight. I think Morgan was even surprised. Good pick? Yes. Great pick? Not really…would’ve loved to see Mad Max close out the night

    I thought Chris Rock was great!

    Oh yay the bridesmaid is finally the bride! We’ll never hear the end of it. Spotlight win was surprising.
