Oscars 2014

The stars of Hollywood gathered last night for the highlight event of their calendar, the Oscars! The 86th Academy Awards took place at the Dolby Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard to celebrate the achievements in film over the last 12 months. I always look forward to the Oscars, I love film and I love fashion, its a win-win! So let’s take a look at the highlights (well my highlights anyway!)

Ellen DeGeneres took charge of proceedings distributing pizza and taking selfies with the A-listers. She was light, entertaining and fun – everything you want in a host of an awards show which takes itself quite seriously! This selfie crashed Twitter and is now the most retweeted thing ever. Ever:

Fashion was out in full force as it always is. Here are some of my favourite dresses gracing the red carpet last night: (photos from here)

I can’t get over how beautiful Portia’s dress is – stunning! Nude is definitely the way to go this season

Olivia’s dress… the best maternity dress you’ve ever seen, right? And Jennifer, as gorgeous as ever

The boys looked pretty dapper too…

And so to the actual awards! Here are some of the results:

Best picture: 12 Years a Slave
Best director: Alfonso Cuaron – Gravity
Best actor: Matthew McConaughey – Dallas Buyers Club (should have been Leo!)
Best actress: Cate Blanchett – Blue Jasmine
Best supporting actor: Jared Leto – Dallas Buyers Club
Best supporting actress: Lupita Nyong’o – 12 Years a Slave
Best adapted screenplay: 12 Years a Slave
Best original screenplay: Her

I completely agree with the results bar one. Can you guess which one? I’ve seen both Dallas Buyers Club and Wolf of Wall Street and both are brilliant films. Matthew McConaughey and Leonardo DiCaprio were both tremendous but I just think Leo was better, he was simply incredible! I can’t praise Wolf of Wall Street enough it was a perfect film for me.
Jared Leto was the stand out performance in Dallas Buyers Club for him. His portrayal of Rayon was so accomplished and emotional. It’s hard to believe this is the first film he’s done in six years!
And as for Best Picture? It couldn’t have been anything other than 12 Years A Slave, could it really? The most powerful film I’ve ever seen and am likely to ever see for a very long time.

Did you watch the Oscars? What did you think to the results? The fashion? That selfie?! Leave links and comments below!
