The 2012 Oscars Goes to

Morgan Freeman starts the show with a short introductory speech about history of Hollywood and why we love going to the movie theater. Mostly we transport our selves to different places, like the make believe world of Avatar, or the last film of the Harry Potter books. It is magnificent to see how the writers and directors put a scene together and the visual interpretation what was written to the big screen.

Billy Crystal starts his opening scene traipsing through the Best Picture nominees, a quick monologue and then a brilliant song and dance routine.  In case you didn’t think this Oscars would be dignified, Billy Crystal is definitely getting some laughs in the press room, especially that Bieber bit. It was funny to see it. He knows how to entertain us.

When would Sacha Baron Cohen ever stop pulling pranks, George Clooney is better pulling of pranks on his cast mates, but for Sacha, he get’s into trouble just to promote his movie? Do what everybody does when promoting a movie, go on a talk show and talk about the movie.  He actually poured pancakes mix ashes from North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il on to Ryan Seacrest. I did not know that he liked pancakes, and I did not know when we died, we look like a pancake mix.

Emma Stone had a big moment last night when she presented at the 2012 Oscars with Ben Stiller. The skit, Emma talking excitedly — at length — about how it was her first time presenting, with Ben playfully shutting her down. Here’s one of their exchanges:

“You don’t want to be the presenter who tries too hard.” Ben Said

“What do you mean, like a guy who would dress in full Avatar makeup or something? I’m surprised you’re not in a Planet of the Apes outfit.” Emma said sarcastically.

And she wanted to hug an actor. I was there. I wanted to hug her. Well, I wasn’t, but I wished I was there.  The skit was a little bit corny, and she really pulled it off, and it got to us thinking about our other favorite awkwardly adorable onscreen Emma Stone moments.

Jennifer Lopez stepped out in her trademark plunging gown in a Zuhair Murad dress which hugged her curvy figure to perfection.  However, Jennifer Lopez may not get an Oscar for the revealing dress she had on and the costume designer award. But her out fit did. Are you tilting your head to one side? To see what she had on. She looked gorgeous.

Jim Rash posing like Angelina Jolie was a highlight of Oscar night. But it was far from the only Jolie-related subject to be buzzed-about Sunday and today.  The outfit she was wearing was black velvet Versace Atelier gown, strapless and striking. Her right leg appears and said thank you.
