A few weeks ago I was already told to be lucky living in North America to watch the Super Bowl live. It was fun, but lucky?? Yesterday I was really lucky: time for the Oscars!!
When I lived in Amsterdam, I wasn’t aware of this huge event. Of course I knew it took place, which movies were nominated for best picture and I saw the best and worst dresses in the magazines. But I never saw the live show.
It was amazing! A few highlights and other noteworthy elements of the show: the red carpet interviews, the dress of Jennifer Lawrence, the fall of Jennifer Lawrence (!), the risky jokes of host Seth MacFarlane, Anne Hathaway, Ben Affleck and Quentin Tarantino winning their Award, the (lack of) height of Daniel Radcliffe, a 9-year old nominee and the contribution of Michelle Obama.
You can read all about it at oscar.go.com (although it is more fun to read the comments of Perez Hilton: perezhilton.com/category/oscars). Next year I’m in again – by this I mean sitting on the couch again with a huge bag of popcorn, commenting on the outfits, hair-do’s and jokes. Can’t wait.
