Overall, I thought the Oscars were pretty boring. I was particularly disappointed by co-hosts James Franco and Anne Hathaway. Or more accurately, I was disappointed the writers didn't make use of their talents. James was dull, dull, dull and Anne was trying too hard to compensate.
That said, here are some other thoughts:
Best dressed: Gwyneth Paltrow. The dress, the hair, the makeup, the jewelry. Gwyneth was born to be a movie star.
Most deserved and runner-up to best dressed: Natalie Portman looks great pregnant and the dress was gorgeous! Plus, she rocked my world in "Black Swan."
Best guy: I know I'll take flack for this, but I adore Mark Ruffalo. I'm thrilled to see him getting the credit he deserves. And, boy, is he handsome or what? Plus, he's from Wisconsin!
Best moment: Florence Welch and A.R. Rachman performing the nominated song "If I Rise" was pure magic. Her voice even silenced the party I was attending - not an easy task.
