73rd Annual Oscars

Julia flashes her Oscar-winning smile.
Julia Roberts won Best Actress.

There was lots of glamour, lots of laughter and a few surprises this year as everyone's favorite gold, bald boy got to go home with some very happy actors. Here is the 411 on what happened, who won and, most importantly, what they were wearing when they did it.

The Best:

Best Speech: Julia Roberts. She was funny and excited and truly humble.
Best Dressed Female:Julia Roberts. She wore a vintage Valentino in classic black and white.
Best Dressed Male: Jaoquin Phoenix. He wore an Armani tuxedo with a long blue tie and he looked great.
Best Joke: Steve Martin "I was gonna wear my swan but I thought they were so last year."(About Bjork's dress)
Best Musical Performance: Sting (It could have been Bob Dylan but the whole satellite thing didn't work for me.)

The Worst

Worst Dressed Female: Bjork. She was wearing some furry fake swan thing that tied around her neck.
Worst Dressed Male: Bjork. Okay, she's female but she deserves to win this award twice.
Worst Musical Performance: Randy Newman and Susanna Hoffs. The song was painful, their performance was painful and their voices blend together as harmoniously as nails and a chalkboard.
Worst Speech:Steven Soderburgh who won for Best Director for Traffic. He said he would thank everybody privately - Hello! This is Hollywood, people want to hear their names on national television.
Worst Audience Response: Everytime Steve Martin cracked a joke involving Russell Crowe and the camera went to him, he looked like his goldfish had just died. Hey, Maximus, you're free - lighten up!

Surprises

Best Supporting Actress:Everyone thought that Kate Hudson was a shoe-in for her role as Penny Lane in Almost Famous. Marcia Gay Harden was also surprised that she won. She actually thanked the Academy for even watching her film,

Pollock.

Best Actor: Even though internet polls had been predicting a win for Russell Crowe since the nominees were announced, he looked like he might pass out when he heard his name called.
The Host With The Most: Steve Martin proved that there is Oscar life without Billy Crystal. Sure, his opener was kinda lame (something involving astronauts) but he was so funny throughout the telecast that it didn't matter. I loved the way he used the celebs to make funnies. Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks seemed to love it too and really played along.
Unexpected Guest: No one expected or knew that Tom Cruise would be showing up. The cutie presented the award for Best Director and it was his first public appearance since he and his wife, Nicole Kidman, separated.

Extra Facts

  • Gladiator took home Best Picture.
  • Winners were supposed to keep their speeches under 45 seconds. Julia Roberts told the conductor to put his little stick down and proceeded to go well over the 45 seconds but no one cut her off. She rocked!
  • Jennifer Lopez was after the Least Dressed award again. Actually, this time she was covered up - but in see-thru material. You could see right through the top of her dress - and J.Lo. forgot her Victoria's Secret. For all the details of this year's Oscars head on down to Oscar.com

I guess it was because I wasn't a big of a fan of the Original Trilogy as I am of the  The Amazing Spiderman. I also prefer the Amazing Spiderman because he actually made the web-shooters, and it really showed how smart he was. I mean, no offence, but in the first films everyone said he was really smart but we never got to see him do something genuis.I'm scared too! I don't want her to die either!Electro seems like sorta a drama queen. I mean, have you seen the trailer where he got all mad because Spiderman didn't remember him? :confused Bit of an over-reaction! He's a changed man :) And by change, I mean way more evil :| I suppose so. But, not trying to sound offense, I think Spiderman is quite old so I think that maybe that's why I prefer the Amazing Spiderman. BUT I still love the original movies. Also I think it's because Spiderman showed a lot of romance compared to the amazing spiderman. Yeah I know, the web shooters are awesome! MY GWEN BABY! *dramatically, and hysterically sobs* I know right? He goes all ninja-style and it's funny when he's like, "YOU LIED TO ME!" in a overly dramatic way. The best moments in the trailer is when Peter's aunt complains about the laundry and he says he was washing the American flag. lol xD
