#Oscars2014

I watch the Oscars every year but now that I have an "adult job" it's usually me and hubby in comfy clothes fast forwarding through the categories such as Best Sound Mixing.  My one big complaint about the Oscars (and it's the same for Super Bowl) is that they take place on SUNDAY.  The night before Monday morning.  I do not do work well hungover, not at all.  And I feel too guilty to call in sick so again, I drink iced tea and usually do laundry while watching.  But it hasn't always been like this!  I used to plan an Oscar viewing party with a bunch of friends, we even went black tie one year, and it was always so fun and I never had to work the next day so the champagne (sparking wine) flowed freely!  But as I said, not anymore. 

So this year hubby and I took our respective places in front of the TV, him stretched out on the long couch and me in a corner of the loveseat with Milo and Jinx stretched out beside me... and although I missed the red carpet I loved the show this year.  

Some of my thoughts are...

Jared Leto's speech - I teared up! I especially love what he said about his mom... And those blue eyes, wow!  But I really want him to cut his hair.

I love Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect 2? CANNOT WAIT) but I didn't like her dress.  Not at all.  I really wanted to but I didn't like the top and I really didn't like whatever was happening in her midriff area.
 
Kate Hudson looked amazing in her dress!  I liked it better when she took the shawl thing off to present but she still rocked it on the red carpet.
 
Sandra Bullock was another stunner...
I think my absolute favorite moments though were three of the performances:
  • Pink singing Over the Rainbow... she has the most amazing voice and her dress was  perfection
  • Bette Midler singing Wind Beneath My Wings for the in memorium tribute
  • Idina Menzel singing Let It Go... although I wasn't as impressed with this version as I was with the movie version, it gives me tingles :)
I know I barely scratched the surface of the amazingness that was the Oscars 2014 but I loved all the nominees and the winners, there was a huge amount of Oscar-worthy films and acting this year that it must have been so hard to vote for just one.  
 
Until next year!
