I know it’s a day late but I’m finally recovered from my sickness, so here’s my take on this year’s Oscars show. Is it just me or was it extremely long and boring? Not that I don’t love Ellen, she has subtle humor that is not crude or rude in the slightest and a goofy sweetness that is endearing. But I missed a little bit of the shock factor of past hosts. It also seemed like the acceptance speeches were more subdued than usual as well, where’s all the screaming and inappropriate political tirades? It’s what I’ve come to expect from Hollywood types! And although there were many beautiful dresses and accessories (my faves are Reese and Nicole), I was sadly missing some fashion train wrecks to spice things up a little. I guess in an age of celebrity stylists, we just have to expect that the days of Demi’s biker shorts and Cher’s Bob Mackie costumes are a thing of the past (except Bjork and Imogen Heap, we’ll always have them!) Overall, it was a so-so Oscar night for me. Here’s looking forward to next year and if you’ll allow me to go off on a tangent for a bit… I saw the cover of the new GQ with my favorite-crush-since-grade-school actor Christian Bale on the front and I nearly died because the headline said “Next Year’s Oscar goes to…Christian Bale” and if that happened I would be so ecstatic, I would frame the Seventeen magazine article I saved of him from 1994’s Little Women and pass legislation that would make it mandatory for all children to watch Newsies and Swing Kids as well as a law that would prevent Christian from ever looking like he did in the Machinist because that almost broke my heart and the world would know me for the true Balehead I am! Wow, that took awhile to let out and now reading back on it I sound like a totally psycho woman. But don’t worry, my husband knows about my little crush (plus no actor crush can come close to the one I have on him)!
