Best Oscars Ever

Monday, March 03, 2014 Posted by Mary , No comments
I don't normally like watching awards ceremonies. They usually bore me. Last night was different. It was probably the best Oscars ever! I love that they had Ellen DeGeneres host it again. She was just unbelievably brilliant. She's truly awesome, and no one--no one, can host the Academy Awards better than she can.

The nominated movies seem to be really good. I'm excited to watch them. I know I should have watched them already, but I'm not too big a fan of movie theaters so I've waited for them to come out on home video. I'm so psyched that I have a ton of good movies to watch in the coming weeks!

The speeches last night were also phenomenal. Jared Leto (Best Supporting Actor for Dallas Buyers Club) and the newcomer Lupita Nyong'o (Best Supporting Actress for 12 Years A Slave) especially, gave incredibly inspiring speeches. It was Hollywood on a different level.

Star power and fashion last night were also awesome. Cate Blanchett was astonishing, as usual. Lupita Nyong'o, again, as with all previous awards ceremonies this season, wowed with amazing class and sophistication. And even though I didn't like what my favorite Julia Roberts wore, I still love her. My bet for best dressed would have to be Jennifer Lawrence in her red Dior Haute Couture gown.

But there were two things that really made my night last night: Ellen ordering pizza for the celebrities (poor pizza delivery guy, he had no clue!), and this selfie--

Ellen wanted everyone to retweet it to try to break retweet records. All the traffic broke Twitter for a few minutes instead. Awesome, just awesome.
