Do’s and Don’t of the Oscars: 2012 Edition

You won’t find a list of winners here. Just check ever other entertainment blog on the face of the earth. Here we just have the Do’s and Don’ts of the Oscars: 2012 Edition.

Do’s and Don’ts: 2012

  1. Do check your sound. My television couldn’t been the only one with weird audio feedback and sound.
  2. Do let Billy Crystal host every year. Maybe he can switch it on and off with Hugh. Billy does it simple, classic. It might seem boring or safe, but overall he carried the show well. The audience seemed to agree.
  3. Don’t do fun facts before commercial breaks. I don’t care. I don’t like it when you do it during the Emmys so I’m definitely not going to like it during the Oscars.
  4. Do let Emma Stone come on stage more often. She will be my best friend. She was so funny and charming. Not in an obnoxious way either. I thought she and Ben Stiller played very nicely.
  5. Don’t let RDJ do that documentary thing again. I love him, but it was very awkward. Let me say it again, I love him, but don’t let him do that again.
  6. Do switch up your presentation such as Cameron Diaz. She does present like every year. Let her have a little fun. Same for Sandra Bullock. She was Ms. Congeniality, let her speak that German Chinese! Find the right balance. Yes to the ladies. Just let RDJ stand there and be handsome.
  7. Don’t do little jokes that aren’t that funny. Do a test audience on the test audience skit. You can save time. Speaking about time… look to the next one.
  8. Don’t say you’ll end at 11:30. Be honest with yourselves… you always end at 11:40.
  9. Do allow Colin Firth to present all awards. You can’t say no to that face or that voice.
  10. Don’t let there only be two Best Song nominees. Also Do let them perform. It’s more entertaining.
  1. Do play a side game on tumblr or twitter with other fans of an actor.  Benedict Cumberwatch ’12 on tumblr. It was highly entertaining for myself since I’ve just become a fan.
  2. Do make a twitter for Angelina Jolie’s leg. Pretty funny when going through your feed and you see that.



OMG! Oscars outfits I loved….

So I know the Oscars were two days ago, but the fashion they wore is still relevant.  Here are my top five and later, my not so top five…

1.Cameron DiazShe wore Oscar de la Renta and couldn’t look more fabulous. Her stylist, Rachel Zoe is one of the top stylists for celebrities for a reason. I also loved how natural her hair looked. She told Nate Berkus on Oprah that she wore red lipstick to distract viewers from how tired she looked. Well, it worked.

2. Rachel McAdams: Ms. McAdams wore Elie Saab Haute Couture and as always looked fabulous on the red carpet. I’m sure if the sun was shinning in Hollywood instead of rain, the dress would have looked even more beautiful. I loved the colors and I loved the criss-crossing in the front. Also the earrings and the hair pulled back helped sell this look.

3. Sandra Bullock: Sandra looked like a winner before she even won her oscar that night in vintage Marchesa.  The beading was exquisite and elegant. The only thing that slightly bothered me was her hair at times. I loved it down, but sometimes it didn’t look right to me and it annoyed me.

4. Maggie Gyllenhaal: “The Crazy Heart” nominee wore a vibrant Dries Van Noten floral column dress. I was such a fan of the color because it popped on the carpet. It was fantastic and catching to the eye.

5. Vera Farmiga: This dress I was debating whether I liked it or hated it. I’ve decided the bright color and the ruffles have won me over. For the longest time, I didn’t know if the ruffles were too much, but I’ve finally let the ruffles win me over. It was just the right dress to walk down that Oscar Red Carpet.

Okay, next up are my five least favorite and a couple honorable mentions that floated in between.
