Oscars '20

Janelle Monae in Ralph Lauren

And just like that, awards season is over. Let's get into Oscars 2020.

It was a long ass show...and it dragged. Similar to last year's show, the Oscars chose to go hostless again. Unfortunately, it didn't work this time around because the time wasn't utilized properly, filling it with weird segments (as much as I love Eminem, why come he was invited to perform his Oscar winner song, Lose It? An almost 20 years old song, by the way. What in the #throwbackthursday...) Janelle Monae opened the show to a remix of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood theme song. It quickly transitioned into Come Alive, the Oscars version. Billy Porter came through in a verse to show us he can sing...and I immediately cringed and rolled my eyes. Twas all so corny. Steve Martin and Chris Rock did a funny monologue bit. I think Steve Martin is adorably cute. Maybe they should host next year.

Congratulations to Brad Pitt, Taika Waititi (he's very handsome), Laura Dern, Hair Love, and Parasite (My coworker pretty much recapped the whole thing - remember, spoilers don't bother me - but he insisted I should still watch. So I will...when it hits Netflix or HBO or something.)

Fashion time:
Cynthia Erivo in Atelier Versace
The askew bodice is bothering my soul. Too many rings.
Why the platform shoes, tho? Why?!!
Yet still, she looks fantastic. Love her hair matching, well, her whole damn outfit.
Cynthia Erivo in Vera Wang
She sang her Oscar nominated song, "Stand Up" and proceeded to KILL IT.
My word.
This performance made me a new fan.
And the dress is fantastic.
Rebel Wilson in Jason Wu
This is the best she's ever looked on the red carpet.
My only nitpick? The choker necklace wasn't needed.
Mindy Kaling in Dolce & Gabbana
This is the best she's ever looked on the red carpet.
Brie Larson in Celine
Gorgeous dress and perfect styling.
Wished it was in a more vibrant color.
Regina King in Versace
It's a pretty enough dress. Not a fan of the voluminous train.
Nor the hair.
Renee Zellweger in Armani Prive
Great dress with some edge.
Too bad nothing else matched the vibe of the dress.
Scarlett Johansson in Oscar de la Renta
Another dress that I wished was in a different color.
And I want to rip off the hanging beads, tho.
She needed a brighter lip color.
Timothee Chalamet in Prada
My boo.
If he wanted to dress as a fighter pilot at the Oscars, who am I to stop my boo?
Let him be.
(He looks odd.)
Margot Robbie in Chanel
Margot was clearly at the Oscars so she wouldn't get fined.
Homegirl didn't care. And what an odd pendant placement.
Saoirse Ronan in Gucci
What a fugly combination of a dress.
Which is a shame because loving the bangs and earrings.
Gal Gadot in Givenchy
What a fugly combination of a dress. Why the random necklace, too?
Which is a shame because her face is stunning.
Kristen Wiig in Valentino
She was having herself a fashun moment.
Too bad it didn't stick.
Again, her face (hairdo, makeup, and earrings) is on point.
Sandra Oh in Elie Saab
No no no no no and no.
