Oscars!

I don’t have a ton to report here–go to any website and you can find the winners–but here are a few of my favorite moments from the 80th annual Academy Awards.

–“Falling Slowly” from Once beat out three songs from Enchanted to win best original song. The band started playing (to indicate that time for speeches was up) before Marketa Irglova got to speak, and I was really sad, but then after the commercial break Jon Stewart invited her back out and she gave a lovely little speech.  

–Marion Cotillard won best actress for La Vie en Rose, and even though I haven’t seen the movie, she was adorable and totally shocked. I’m not sold on her fish-scale style dress, but she’s certainly beautiful.

–Amy Adams carried the doll version of her Enchanted character on the red carpet.

–With a 1,399 carat diamond necklace, Nicole Kidman proved that more is not always more. I thought it looked awkward. Plus, 1,399 carats? Jesus.

For a very entertaining look at what life in the Kidman-Urban house might be like, check out the always funny Go Fug Yourself girls.

–I just scored 9/10 on People.com’s “Guess the Oscar Dress” quiz of pictures of past stars with their faces covered. It dated back to the early ’90s, so I don’t hold it against myself that I missed Demi Moore.
