Well, THAT was a memorable Academy Awards! And I thought nothing would ever top that naked guy streaking past David Niven in 1974. (If you haven't seen it, check it out below. Niven had the best comeback ever.)
I watched until 10ish, then fell asleep and MISSED THE GREATEST OSCAR BLUNDER OF ALL TIME. Damn you 3 a.m. alarm!
It was all so unfortunate for the La La Land people. But very good for the Moonlight crew. And very BAD for PriceWaterhouseCooper.
And speaking of good and bad, the red carpet fashion was slightly boring last night, no? Nothing spectacular. Lots of disappointments. My favorites were Viola Davis in ravishing red and Taraji P. Henson boomin' in blue velvet. Dakota Johnson looked like she lost a bet; Ruth Negga's frock resembled a Lanz by Salzburg nightdress and while Jessica Biel struck a pose in gold and silver, she came up short for a style award.
I loved Jimmy Kimmel and I usually don't, so that was a fun surprise. Justin Timberlake's opening number set a terrific, energetic tone and what about Auli'i Cravalho? The Moana star is only 16 and not only did she rock the red carpet, she performed like a seasoned pro - at one point being smacked in the noggin' by a dancer's prop and never missing a beat.
I suppose we all felt a little like this at the end, but hey, it's just an awards show!
