This week’s Bionic Asks…
From the brilliant red carpet, to the shiny statuettes… glamourous dresses, Clooney’s sly smiles, Doogie Howser’s sequined jacket (he’s still, and always will be, Doogie to me!), and the funny-ish banter between Baldwin and Martin… Did you indulge in a few hours in front of the telly to watch the Oscars?
I admit I haven’t seen Precious or Hurt Locker. I did see District 9, Star Trek and Avatar… which shows my propensity for geeky movies. Star Trek and Avatar floored me (in a good way), District 9 did not. I mentioned my District 9 dislike over Twitter and most respondents agreed with me; however one woman started calling me names (including certain female body parts). Hmmm… pent up angst, anyone?!? I just moved along. Really, people, don’t we all know we can have our own opinions at this day and age? And may I add, she WAS NOT acting like a Powerful Beauty. Nope, nuh uh. *wink*
I thought Kristen Stewart looked absolutely gorgeous. She kept the makeup to her usual smokey eye and didn’t wear ten pounds of jewelry- which would have been way over-the-top for someone her age. If I have to make one tiny negative remark, I wish she’d stand up a bit straighter.
All the dresses this year were beyond amazing in my opinion. Sarah Jessica Parker’s was a slight miss for me, but just because I think she can certainly pull off something more form-fitting, and the yellow color didn’t do her skin tone justice.
My other top favorites- Kate Winslet, Helen Mirren (she is SO perfect!), Cameron Diaz, Lt. Uhura (sorry, I can’t remember her real name but she was in both Star Trek and Avatar. I just looked her up- Zoe Saldana!).
As for the show itself, good overall. But the snubbing of Bea Arthur and Farah Fawcett during the memorial montage miffed me. Farah’s death upset me more than Micheal Jackson’s (Ok, please don’t throw tomatoes at me, I just grew up a Farah Fawcett fan!).
So who did you love and dislike (let’s try to be nice and remember that *hate* is a strong word, Bionic Beauties), what movies did you route for, and if you didn’t watch the Oscars what did you do instead?
