In Case You Missed It: The Oscars
So, the Oscars were Sunday — did you guys hear about this? Didja see this? I put my best, most-critical foot forward and did what anyone from my incredibly self-absorbed generation would do: I tweeted.
Sure, there are about a million recaps of the night’s ceremonies … but how many of those were written by me? Answer: ONE.
Here’s all you needed to know about the 2014 Oscars:
Jennifer Lawrence tripped on the red carpet —
still had a better night than me.
Jared Leto won Best Supporting Actor & nailed his speech.
Pharrell wore that big, stupid hat he brought to the GRAMMYs.
Lupita Nyong’o gave an incredible speech & stunned in a blue gown.
Cuba Gooding, Jr. was in a really bizarre-o Pepsi commercial.
Bette Midler performed, then Goldie Hawn presented.
BUT WHERE’S DIANE?
John Travolta completely botched Idina Menzel’s name.
BONUS: See how he’d screw yours up!
Cate Blanchett won Best Actress & is basically BFFs with Julia Roberts.
Take everything I say seriously, because I am an expert.
No mention of the pizza gag that ran on too long …
No need to talk about the stupid fucking #selfie that broke Twitter …
Just some good, old-fashioned Oscars love.
What was your favorite moment?
I thought the best speech was from those two that wrote the award winning song. They rhymed, and they were excited and they were fun, and they didn’t take forever.
Yes, they certainly were prepared! They really proved just how perfect they were for that job with Disney.
Matthew McCanaughey’s speech! Didn’t see the movie, but he had a lot to say and an interesting perspective on what we should strive for in life.
Ahh! I kind of spaced out at that point — still hard for me to take him seriously, but I did watch it again and was impressed.
