Of course you knew that I would be discussing my Best Dressed Picks today!! But, first, let me tell you...in my opinion, there was WAY too much time spent on the whole diversity thing. It was not necessary to keep bringing up the issue. If it was mentioned in the opening monologue and that was it, I would have been fine with it. But, no.....they had to keep bringing it up every five minutes!
Anyway, Cate Blanchett looked pretty in this aqua number!
Alicia Vikander in "Dusty Yellow"
Brie Larson in my absolute FAVE color...Cobalt Blue!!
Charlize Theron always looks perfect in Dior. I don't think I can ever remember her looking anything but perfect!
I thought Jennifer Garner looked great!
Not too many people could carry off this look, but YES, Kerry Washington / Olivia Pope CAN and DID! It was HANDLED!
Naomi Watts always looks so sweet! Loved the colors of her dress.
What can I say...Sofia Vergara never misses a beat! Perfection!
I thought Tina Fey looked better than usual! She has had some not too great Red Carpet moments..this one was a WIN!
I was also surprised to learn that the interviewers were told not to ask the women "Who they were wearing". WHAT???? I have been watching the Awards Shows for a very long time and I never knew that the actresses were upset that they were asked what designer made their dress. I was really surprised that #askmemore was a trending hashtag on Twitter!
I just didn't get as much out of this year's show...and I am somewhat disappointed I guess. I was happy that Leo DiCaprio finally won. His acting in "Revenant" was AWESOME!
I was NOT HAPPY that Sylvester Stallone did not win for Creed. He DESERVED that award. Not that Mark Rylance wasn't deserving...his role was very good in Steven Spielberg's Cold War thriller, "Bridge of Spies".
Lady Gaga's performance was very emotional and the audience was moved to tears. It was a very powerful performance.
It was quite a surprise to everyone, I think, that the night's most prestigious award went to “Spotlight,” about the Boston Globe’s investigation into decades of sexual abuse within the Catholic Church. The film also won for best original screenplay.
So...that is my take on tonight's awards!
The girls decided they'd rather nap in front of the fire...
