The Oscars last night

14 years ago

I watched the first 45 minutes or so, but the highlight for me was the Whoopi Goldberg commercial for Poise pads. Hilarious! It looks as if she has done several of them and they strung them together for the Oscars commercial.

    I agree about SJ Parker - her dress just hung on her, giving her an unattractive shapeless look. Looked like she drove to the Oscars in a convertible LOL - perfect description!

    I didn't think about it before but I agree with Auntjen regarding Miley Cyrus not belonging. And IMO her dress looked like she'd forgotten the top part of her skirt. I mean it looked like she was wearing a bra/foundation and skirt. Not only ugly, but totally not age appropriate. Great example for teenage girls. Not.

    OA, Firstly, no luck at Walgreens with the award for me. There was absolutely nothing there last night. :( About the golf table, those are great ideas. I was thinking of the golf ball place card holders myself. I was thinking of cutting out felt into putting green weird curvy shapes but I like your idea of the turf better. I was thinking last night that I could paint some golf themed simple designs on the back of plain glass plates. The pencils are easy to work in - maybe even those score cards somehow. I dont play golf either - I tried one season and didnt feel it was for me. Thanks for all the great ideas!!! I might come back for more suggestions. Thanks Betty. I got those salad plates at the Japanese dollar store - Daiso. I dont think I have seen them in black there. Its actually a chain store but is only on the west coast mostly. Mo

    Oscar Fashions any one?

    Did not watch the Oscars but looked through a few red carpet photo sites the morning after. While I agree there weren't any big winners this year, neither were there a lot of huge losers, either....mostly everyone looked presentable, at least. That light blue dress.....the fabric looked so cheap. I know it wasn't, of course, but it looked like fake fortuny with rhinestones. And Pink...what's up with the regulation short haircut brushed up stiff like that, or making long hair look like that? Pink, Jennifer Lawrence, several others. Kate Hudson, a roger rabbit refugee, brilliant, Annie! And finally, Pink's rendition of Over the Rainbow? I find it very sad that every singer has to sing songs with that vocal adornment technique that used to be reserved for soul music in the 70s. Now it is used to disguise or compensate for narrow vocal ranges and the fact that the voice cannot sustain long notes on an even tone. Nowadays a singer is a person who can sing enough, and has some schtick that makes him or her famous. Most of today's singers actually have terrible voices. The likes of Judy Garland, Karen Carpenter, Cass Elliott, Patsy Kline, Barbara Streisand and others with true star quality voices are mostly gone. Lea Michele is one singer who sometimes uses that type of vocalization but doesn't need it, and she would have killed that song at the Oscars.

    About the Oscars...?

    I went shopping for accessories to match with a dress for my niece's wedding. So, I missed 3/4 of the Oscar. Funny, when they mentioned that "red" was the main color 'cause my new dress is... red too! I have been watching recaps from E! channel today. I must agree with one of the guy in E! commenting about Tilda Swinton's look. I think her simple, drapery dress matches with her "no make up" look. To me it looks cuture and sort of like a model look which makes it more interesting when I heard the comment from that E! guy. He said that her dress and look is right for the runway but not appropriate for the red carpet. Basically, she wasn't glamorous enough but looked fine. There were very very few looks that I thought they were messy. 99% of celebrities looked FAbulous! One of the "funny" I like was when Jon Stewart asked someone to move the jet and John Travolta walked out to thank him. Gees, it must be nice to be able to park 2 jets on your own property!

    My Sweet Cat Oscar Died Last Night

    We buried Oscar last night as the sun was setting. We thought about his life with us and the other pets that are also buried in that area, 2 dogs, 1 cat and 3 ducks. I mentioned to Ron about planting something there as one of you suggested and I think we will plant a Lilac bush. Today I just feel kind of numb and heavy. In the midst of my grief I am dealing with a number of other problems at work and with my health. Maybe that is why Oscar's death seems all the more heavy for me now. I'm so grateful for the pictures I have of him, and all the wishes from you all. Bless you all today. I feel like your messages are really easing my burden. Thank you again. Sue

    Too funny - I agree about SJP! She is a prime example if you are over forty, you need a little meat on your bones. It makes her look older, IMO. Now, if she would just get rid of that wart on her face-that is the only thing my eyes focus on when I see her in a movie.

    I LOVED Sandra Bullock's hair and gown. She is so striking.

    Speaking of getting old and needing some meat on your bones, that reminds me of James Cameron's wife. During their red carpet interview, it was almost horrifying to see her arms and other exposed parts the dress she was wearing accentuated. I felt sort of sorry for her -- did she look in the mirror once she put that dress on?

    I think Suzy Amis' face is beautiful....and if that's what 60 looks like, I should only look so good (yes, I know she's 48).

    To me, she looks like she weight trains. She has great deltoids. I do think she looks thin but I'm built exactly as she and trust me, it's not from lack of eating.

    With regard to Sarah Jessica Parker's mole...are you kidding me...she is being criticized for having a mole on her face? No wonder people have self-image issues.

    Every time I see someone that looks that thin on TV, I remember the camera adds 10 lbs. and can't imagine how skinny they must be IRL. I agree with Terriks that Cameron's wife looks too thin.

    We watched the first part of the show on our friends' big huge TV and Sarah Jessica Parker's face was such a strange color, I couldn't figure out if the color settings were off on the TV or it was just a bad makeup job. Normally I think she looks good, but not last night.

    I also noticed that they forgot Farah Fawcett! That was kind of strange, I thought.

    Newdawn, I think Harry Winston did die, many years ago, but the last I looked, his Beverly Hills location is still alive and well on Rodeo Drive.

    I don't think you got my point or perhaps I didn't make myself clear.

    I think criticizing anyone for having a mole, whether it be a celebrity or a "regular" person is a bit shallow. That's just my opinion.

    As far as celebrities go, I grew up with them, had them as friends and lived among them for the first 51 years of my life. They're just normal people who are overpaid. Some are really wonderful, some are not...just like everyone else....but they ARE people who have real feelings and are not immune to some of the cruel things said about them.

    And I promise not to lose any sleep tonight. I don't have any Harry Winston, but I've got plenty of Cartier.

    Did you catch Queen Latifa? What a beautiful look for her. That dress was very, very flattering on her.

    I agree 100% about Miley Cyrus. That kid is a train wreck waiting to happen and had NO business on the show. The other girl who was with her on stage, no idea who she was, but she looked a lot more age appropriate than MC.

    SJP...fashionista...fashion victim. Too bad. She tends to dress to a different designer, but this one was waaay off the mark.

    I also thought James Cameron's wife looked terrible. When he was married to Linda Hamilton, she got to looking like that too...maybe it's his *thing*? Katryn Bigalow sure showed both of them up!

    I too LOVED Inglourious Basterds. Thought that fellow stole the film...he was awesome. Haven't seen any of the others, yet. Will probably end up watching The Blind Side and Precious. Don't think I have a desire to see Up in the Air or Invictus...and I'll not see Avatar for a variety of reasons (1: 3D makes me dizzy, 2: not a big CGI fan, 3: James Cameron). I think DH is going to watch Hurt Locker tonight, but I'll pass. I heard them talking about it on OPB and I think it'll be graphic for me. We currently have one nephew in Afghanistan and several other family members in Iraq, I'm not ready for a film about this war.

    The funniest comment I heard on TV about Sarah Jessica Parker's hair was from a hair stylist who said that bun on the back of her head made her look like the Elephant Man!

    This is the first I've seen of James Cameron's wife. That dress is not flatering to her boney frame. She looks like emaciated Rachel Zoe.

    I figured they didn't mention Farah,etc because this is the Screen actor's guild that is voting, doesn't that exclude television? Were all her movies TV movies or did she appear in a feature film? I can't remember. Seems like it would be more appropriate to remember her at the Emmy's. I don't watch that award show so I'm just guessing. The memorial had a lot of behind-the-scene people most of us have never heard of so it wasn't that interesting.

    I thought Martin & Baldwin very were funny together but what was that bed scene all about??? I didn't get the point of that skit.

    The media is just so relentless in their criticism. Do you remember Karen Carpenter? She was always on the plump (and adorable) side and the media was relentless. She did become anorexic and died from heart failure. So very sad...and all because she didn't want to be "plump" anymore.

    My sister lived on Gayle Drive, right off Wilshire. She lived in one of those big pink numbers, which I called early Joan Crawford. It was gorgous, but she just rented, but even so. And also, she lived in West Hollywood on Larrabee right off of San Monica Blvd., in the oldest house there. Gosh that place was cold, but it was a little cottage type house and the city wasn't allowed to tear it down because it was on the historial registor. She still wishes she lived there, but she went home to Michigan and hates it.

    Farrah Fawcett and Bea Arthur both starred in films.

    "Although Fawcett and Arthur were best known for their work on TV - Fawcett in "Charlies Angels" and movies like "The Burning Bed" and Arthur in "The Golden Girls" and "Maude" - both had notable film careers.

    Fawcett starred in movies such as "The Cannonball Run" (1981), "Extremities" (1986) - for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe award for best actress in a drama - and later, Oscar-nominated film "The Apostle" (1997).

    Arthur starred in "Lovers and Other Strangers" (1970), which was nominated for 3 Oscars, as well as the big screen version of "Mame" (1974), among others.

    The Associated Press reported last week that the segment was running too long.

    "It gets close to agonizing by the end," Bruce Davis, executive director of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, told the AP. "You are dropping people who the public knows. It's just not comfortable."

    I couldn't believe Farah was left out of the Memorium, but obviously, someone didn't do their homework. Was Jean Simmons mentioned~she died in Jan. It might be a better idea if that portion of the Oscars were dropped to avoid slighting anyone.

    I thought the majority of the dresses were very classy this year, with the exception of the young lady with the *deep* V almost down to her navel. Somehow I missed seeing Miss Cyrus, but I can live. I love Sandra Bullock, and it's about time she's had a movie worthy of a Oscar! She looked gorgeous and the dress was a knock-out.

    Marlene, I can easily understand why you left BH! DD lived on South Elm Dr, and although I loved going up to do a bit of shopping, I hated the rudeness of many of the people. I always thought of it as a whole different way of life, further from any existence I ever knew. I'm in Austin, TX now(came from San Diego),and can hardly stand it I love it so much!! ;o)

  • 14 years ago
    last modified: 9 years ago

    She's 48??!!!! I figured she was easily in her 60s. I'm sorry but she does look old and frail. You almost can't tell from the pictures but if you can find a video of the red carpet interview, you can see as she moves her arms about, the skin just hanging off her bones. She does not look like she excercises those arms, she looks like she lost a lot of weight due to illness. I'm sorry but she looks like she's been starved.

    In that picture bestyears linked to, I think a lot of that is hidden by her clothing (better choice) and long hair. I still see that thinness in her arms though, it's just not as prominent.

    What irks me most about them leaving off Farah Fawcett is the fact that they did see fit to throw in that PR guy (I mentioned above). They gotta draw the line somewhere, I'll buy that. But looks to me like the line was pretty crooked. Can't they just say, "Oops, we're terribly sorry, we made a mistake" instead of making up lame excuses? Yuck. Hey! Academy, we figured out you messed up, so just own up!

    Oh, and I agree about Queen Latifa's dress. When you see someone wearing something that is perfect for her, you can't understand why some of the others can't at least come close!

    I remember several years ago when my boyfriend and I were watching the Oscars they forgot to mention a great actor that died.

My first inclination when I looked at this photo was to recoil slightly. But then I thought, hey - she looks like a real human being! Moles and wrinkles and gray hair and all! I think we've become so used to airbrushed, Photoshopped pictures of celebs/models that when we do see someone as they truly are, it's jarring. And I find that fact rather disturbing. When/why did we stop being real? Oh yeah ... when it became trendy not to ever age, and thus not to ever have to face the eventuality that awaits us all.

    Queen Latifah really did look fabulous! And I totally agree that she seems like one of the most likable and fun people in Hollywood.

    Penelope Cruz looked gorgeous, as always. Not only is she exquisitely beautiful, she selects and wears her clothes with WOW!

    Cameron Diaz looked lovely -- but IMO, generic! She normally has such a 'natural' and quirky look. At the Oscars, she looked pretty much like every other beautiful actress...

    Good point! I've seen more plastic looking faces lately than I care to remember. And sorry, it doesn't look like they didn't age. It looks like they aged and then had a face lift. And IMO it looks way worse than wrinkles. It's weird and unnatural looking.

    Off the top of my head: Meg Ryan, Barbara Walters, Dick Clark (he's SCARY looking), Burt Reynolds.

    I'm sure there are lots more. They have puffy plastic looking cheeks which don't move when the person smiles.

    And I'll clarify about Suzy Amis - it's not wrinkles that make her look old, it's the way her skin hangs off her bones.

    I agree, they are who they are, skinny, fat or whatever. All I'm sayin' is that it's best to wear clothes that flatter your figure, no matter what it is. If you've got great curves, show them off! If you have too much poundage, don't wear stuff that's too tight with your fat overflowing. If you're too thin, don't wear clothes that mak you look even thinner.

    Although I may have sounded like I was criticizing her for being too thin, my main point was meant to be that her dress was just not suited for her.

    My daughter lives in the West Hollywood area now, and she just loves it there. It helps that her job is about a mile away, and there is lots for her to do within walking distance. And she is young, so it's a good time in her life to enjoy the area. I do worry about her becoming obsessesed about her weight, but she likes cupcakes too much to become anorexic!

    I didn't watch a whole lot of it, maybe half an hour or so - I get bored easily with awards shows, they're just public m@sturb@tion AFAIC - but WHAT was it with the one-shoulder thing this year? Seemed like every third woman had on a one-shoulder dress (and most of them not particularly flattering). I thought there were quite a few "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" ;-) gowns in the part I saw. Zoe Saldana's purple fluffy number with the train - which reminded me of the crepe paper carnations that we all made in kindergarten for Mother's Day - and when she and that other woman in a black similarly-overdone thing (I think it was Carey Mulligan?) went down to the mike to present an award neither one could even walk in their gowns. Molly Ringwald's stylist should have been slapped for letting her out of the dressing room in that flappy purple thing. Lot of "fleshtone" dresses this year too, which was a little creepy.

    I did think Meryl Streep's gown was simultaneously age-appropriate and very elegant. I also enjoyed watching her laugh so many times, she looked like she has a really infectious, hearty laugh instead of the typical Hollywood titter. Mo'Nique looked sharp too, I thought - making absolutely no apologies for her size and I dug the diagonal pleating pattern. At first I was kind of "huh?" about the hair ornament but I decided I liked it.

    It is possible to be very thin and yet healthy. You see it in runners a lot. Mary Tyler Moore comes to mind - she keeps herself very trim to prevent secondary problems from her diabetes.

    Two days ago after reading this thread I googled Suzy Amis and got your usual run of the mill bio and images. Today I started to type "Suzie Amis" and google's auto search suggestion feature added on the terms "sick" and "anexoric" and then a bunch of hits from past couple days cropped up. Apparently her appearance has caused a lot of buzz and search activity. I hope it's not a serious illness.

    Anyone remember a little movie called Fandango? One of Kevin Costner's very early films before he became known. (He was an attention grabber in that one, pretty clear he would probably be going places.) Great movie, has some hilarious stuff in it (especially the skydiving incident). If you haven't seen it, rent it! Here's a B&W face shot of her much the same as she looked back then. She was a really pretty girl in that movie, don't want to spoil anything so will be vague, but the final scene (where the movie takes its title from) was touching.

I agree with Graywings that very thin people can be extremely healthy. Runners are an excellent example. People who are stick-thin and healthy have a vibrant glow though, and somehow Suzy has lost hers. She was certainly attractive when she was younger.

    Oops! Well,that didn't come out quite right. After your post I just got an instant image of a pic you posted and the comparison to SA, who is your (:>O!!!) age, is astonishing! Putting it in perspective: if she looks 48 then YOU look 28!

    I did think Meryl Streep's gown was simultaneously age-appropriate and very elegant.

    I agree, she looked lovely.

    I would like to run around the red carpet with cardigan sweaters for a lot of the over-exposed.

    LOL! Maybe someone needs to start a sweater rental business at the Oscars.
