Kate’s Oscar Wrap-Up

Oscar Hosts - James Franco and Anne Hathaway

The 83rd Academy Awards were held Sunday, Feb. 27, 2011. I love the movies. I love the celebrities. I love the glitz and glam. Suffice it to say, Oscar night is one of my favorite nights of the year.

I’ve got all of this year’s Oscar winners here for you, but first, a few of my own bests and worsts of the night.

Most Heartfelt Acceptance Speech-

Natalie Portman

Best/Worst White Trash Moment -

Melissa Leo

(Proving  the actress didn’t have to stretch too far to play her role as boxing mother/manager, Alice Ward.)

Most Awkward Moment -

Any time Hosts, Anne Hathaway and James Franco were on stage

Anne Hathaway and James Franco

I was soooo hoping for the best with these two “younger” hosts, but feared the worst. Anne tried too hard with her overly bubbly, hyper approach, which just became annoying after a few minutes. James, much as I hate to say it because he’s a great actor and all around cutey patootie, clearly realized he was a fish out of water as an Oscar host and was practically comatose throughout the show. May I suggest Robert Downey Jr. and Sandra Bullock as next year’s hosts?

Crazy Oscar Hair Award -

Luke Mathney (Live Action Short Winner)

If you get a chance to see the Live Action Shorts and the Animated Shorts, do so. I’ve seen them all this year and they are A-mazing.

Best Oh Geez, How Are They Going to Get Him Off the Stage Moment -

We can thank for Kirk Douglas for this category, with his mostly touching, but also a little scary, Oscar appearance.  The man would not leave the stage.

I Actually Laughed Out Loud Moment -

And finally, what Oscar wrap-up would be complete without some fashion recaps?

Best Dressed -

Halle Berry

Jennifer Hudson

14 year old Hailee Steinfeld
