The moment I had been waiting for all year had finally arrived last night. I stocked up on treats and refreshments at the grocery store and finished all of my household chores early in the day so I would be fully prepared for Oscar night! I must say that I am not a huge fashion mogul but I absolutely adored the dresses this year. I love the way they shined and flowed and complemented every figure on the red carpet. The top three dresses had to go to Demi Moore, Cameron Diaz and J-Lo. I was slightly amused by the dress that Charlize Theron was wearing as it boasted two flower-like spirals on the chest. We all know that if anyone can get away with this look and have the attitude to pull it off, it would be Charlize Theron.

Most actors hope and pray to one day make it to the Oscars even if they are not nominated. It is huge just to be seen walking down the red carpet and brushing shoulders with some of the most talented people in show business. With all of the excitement and preparation, the gold and diamonds that they are allowed model from the sponsors, top-notch designer clothing, high-end goody bags, champagne and fine hoer' devours, and so on, you would think that every one of these talented and fortunate human beings could crack a smile. I was very surprised at the look of contempt on George Clooney's face while Alec Baldwin was about to make a joke about him as he and Steve Martin did on many of the stars in the audience. He should feel lucky that Alec Baldwin was kind enough to not proceed with his joke. Not only did Clooney look exhausted as he sported a borderline mullet to the Oscars, he looked like a complete jerk and is no longer on my list of sexiest stars. All it takes is a cocky attitude like his to turn a very handsome prince into a frog. They should have a prerequisite at the door that you need to be in a good mood before entering or do everyone a favor and stay home.

Many of the stars kept a wonderful composure and were actually able to relax and enjoy themselves a little. Meryl Streep always seems to have a great sense of humor and is radiant inside and out. Helem Mirren and Christopher Plummer make such an adorable couple and seemed very personable. Other stars who stood out above the rest as normal people were Sandra Bullock, Sabourey Sidibe, Mo' Nique, James Cameron, Quentin Tarantino, Kathryn Bigelow and a handful more. The overall look of the audience full of super-stars was dull and they seemed un-amused no matter what entertainment was before them. It's as if they were doing us all a favor for having shown up in the first place. Thank goodness for the few people with a sense of humor. I was beginning to feel bad for Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin. What a tough crowd!

Moving forward, I was somewhat surprised that Avatar didn't bring home the Oscar for Best Motion Picture but Cameron was in tough competition with his ex, Kathryn Bigelow for The Hurt Locker. I didn't see either movie, to be honest; I'm just going on popularity and advertising alone. I did rent The Hurt Locker and actually watched the first fifteen minutes but needed to shut it off for something important, though I look forward to finishing it soon. I was very pleased to watch as Mo'Nique receive the award for Best Actress In A Supporting Role! I was waiting for this moment since I saw Precious in the theater. I was not disappointed with any of the decisions and was entertained throughout the whole show until I fell asleep at 11:00 just in time for the good stuff! I managed to find out who the rest of the winners were this morning. The Academy Awards open new doors to a few movies that are available that many of us don't even know about such as shorts, documentaries and other film treasures that we should see if we haven't already. Hopefully the movies that are released this year offer half as much great acting and entertainment as we had in 2009!
