The Oscar film nominees didn't inspire much passion from me this year. In most films I saw, there were spectacular performances but the movies themselves felt uneven and indulgently long. So, what I lack in enthusiasm for the nominees themselves, I'll have to apply to the FASHION! And thankfully, there were some dazzling looks last night.
The show itself had some beautiful moments (I'm still crying about Ke Huy Quan's journey) but it also had a huge misstep, which was a CHAMPAGNE carpet. Some things about the Oscars need fixing, but none of those things was the red carpet. Can you imagine how dirty and gross this thing got? If there's one organization that needs to be the standard-bearer for red carpets, it's the Academy.
