For the first time Ronn and I watched almost all of the major Oscar nominated movies and our favorite was “The Decendants.” I was surprised it didn’t take home best picture, however we did enjoy “The Artist” very much too. We haven’t seen “Hugo” yet, so that is a must on our list. I thought “Iron Lady” was an okay movie, but loved Meryl Streep’s performance and thought she should indeed win best actress. We loved “The Help” and Octavia Spencer did steal that movie and I also thought she was a sure thing for Best supporting actress. All in all, Billy Crystal was great as a host, he always is. I wasn’t floored by any of the dresses on the red carpet, although Angelina Jolie looked great, she looked rather thin and what was up with the leg thing? Seems she was trying too hard, which in my opinion a more subdued approach is always best. I just think Natalie Portman is adorable and although I love Emma Stone, I hated her dress. We spent our Oscar night at the Playboy mansion, which is always fun because it’s like family there. We have so many terrific friends to catch up with there and the food is always terrific. Think next year we may just have our own Oscar bash!

  1. Sounds like an awesome night!
    I loved ”The Help” too…it is officially on my two 10 list ever. I was crying half the time and Octavia Spencer was absolutely phenomenal.
    I also loved ”The Descendants” too. I think it was the best part George Clooney ever played.
    I was so excited that Meryl won! She was just perfect in the Iron Lady!

  2. I stayed up and watched all of the Oscars; something I have not done in previous years out of frustration. I haven’t seen most of the movies, but I get the drift, and Meryl definitely deserved the award. I am looking forward to seeing “The Help” soon.

    Sounds like you had an awesome night. It’s probably a whole lot more fun watching the show where you were.

    Love ya, Lilian
