    I love the Oscars – it’s like the gay Super Bowl.

      Welcome Daniel…still have not stopped smiling over  the exchange of lines from “Blondes” the other day! 

  2. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    6:12…sorry I’m late beginning.  There was a problem.   I left my opening commentaries on the other announcement of Mr. W.s coverage.

    On E! red carpet now with Ryan and Guiliana, two very shrunken people.

    Anne Hathaway being interviewed earlier, backstage with James Franco.  Why are they not thrilling me—even the idea of them–as Oscar hosts?  Oh, well, I am old I guess.

    I’d prefer Sharon Stone, who was terrif with Piers Morgan the other night. (Although he is as bad an interviewer as Larry King)

    As I explained earlier I am writing in bold type because my font is perpetually tiny and it is hard for me to see my typos and mispellings.  Tho they will be numerous, nevertheless.

    Okay…commerical.  Mr. W. spent the day loading more music on his computer and iPOd (up to nearly 3,000 songs…)…making sure Faye Dunaway was NOT appearing on “Dancing with the Stars”…gagging at Elton naming Lady Gaga as his child’s godmother…with B., mourning the sudden death of a pet–our young cat Sweetie.  Happened yesterday. 

    I am wearing–because I know you want to know–gym shorts, an old “Property of Detroit Tigers” tee shirt.  Unshaven.  Not pretty.

  4. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Hallie Steinfeld from “True Grit”  pretty in pink.  15 years old.  Let’s hope she doesn’t win.  No offense, but children should not compete against adults.

    Her gown is by Marquesa.  It is age-appropriate.

  5. avatar Tee Zee says:

    So sorry about the loss of Sweetie.  Please tell me your not wearing a tee shirt!

  6. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Florence of Florence and the Machine is talking to Ryan.  She’ll sing tonight.  Great voice.

    Just spotted Mila Kunis in violet…Flo’s dress by Valentino, rather drab

    Mila…she is gorgeous, deseverd a nomination.  Not loving this dress.  Looks like somethnig to wear in the bedroom. 

    Amy Adams coming up.  Black, glittery, sleeveless.  Eh.  Lots of beautful flowing hair.

  7. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    In pepping for the Oscars today I watched…a Golden Girls marathon.

    And Hallmark kept show Raquel Welch in her Foster Grants commerical.  Why isn’t SHE presenting?

    Mandy Moore onscreen.  Not a triumph for her stylist.

    Now Russell Brand, who is at least wearing a tie but forgot to wash his hair.  With his mum, who is quite attractive.

  8. avatar Tee Zee says:

    Florence is amazing.

  9. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Michelle Williams…no, no,no….!  And I’ve met her. She’s a doll.   This is not a good night or a good look.  OMG  it was Chanel.  Coco is twirling somewhere.

  10. avatar Tee Zee says:

    Amy Adams is stunning.

  11. avatar J G says:

    I liked Michelle’s dress. She’s so tiny and she wore the dress, rather then the dress wearing her…

  12. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Lull…I  put hundreds of Beatles songs on my iPOd.  I recently purchased the box set, all their albums.  I still have my vinyl White Album. 

    Amy Adams…oh, I think it’s dark blue.  Doesn’t need the little necklace.  Her love scenes with Mark Wahlberg were “hungry and passionate.”  she says.  Mine would be too.

  13. avatar J G says:

    Oh my…Is that Kelly Ozfest?? Ozbourne?

  14. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Kelly and Guiliana like Mila’s dress. 

    Kelly’s hair is enormous.   Love a girl with big hair.  It’s very Dusty Springfield

  15. avatar Daniel Sugar says:

    Thanks, yes, that was fun – look forward to running lines from many more great movies with you.

  16. avatar Tee Zee says:

    So far disappointed, most of these dresses lack imagination and definitely do not flatter the women.  Maybe its me and my dark mood.

  17. avatar J G says:

    I wonder if HGTV or whatever it is called, and bad lighting are coming into play…

  18. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Amy’s heels are amazing, however. 

    Kelly and Guiliana are iffy on Amy’s dress.

    They are loving Michelle.  She’s so “girly…a blonde Audrey Hepburn.”   Really?  

    Oy…Nicole Kidman will arrive soon.  Invariably badly dressed.  Horrific taste.  In clothes.  And former husbands.  (Actually, that’s not fair.  I  think Tom is still pretty sexy and very talented. The other stuff…not my business.)

  19. avatar J G says:

    I can’t forgive T.C. for his anti antidepressant remarks…
    embalming fluid?  I think I’m slow witted tonight.

  20. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Oh, see…Kelly agrees with me about Hallie’s dress–“age appropriate”

    Mark Ruffalo now…and accompanied by—Anna Wintour?  (Just kidding, it’s the wife.)

  21. avatar J G says:

    I can’t tell the difference between the real Mark Zuckerberg and the fake Mark Zuckerberg (sp)

  22. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Jennifer Hudson…thank God, red and cleavage.  And people handling her train.

  23. avatar J G says:

    Haha…Anna Wintour!

  24. avatar J G says:

    Something is wrong with Jennifer’s cleavage. People will pay. Heads will roll……

  25. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Ugh,,,Cate Blanchette.  These dresses tonight are killing me.  And not in a good way.

    Ruffalo’s wife has an enormous growth on her shoulder. 

    Jennifer talking her “new body”   The dress is Versace?  Very plain for Versace.

    • avatar Tee Zee says:

      In sync with the dresses…and these folks pay stylists!  They should have pulled a Sharon Stone and dig into the back of the closet.

  26. avatar J G says:

    Cate Blanchette looks 10 years younger. I love her hair. The dress wore her, in my opinion.

  27. avatar Community Manager says:

    I love that Tim Gunn is there and covering the event.  Hooray Tim!

  28. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Kelly’s and Guiliana say Cate’s dress is “artwork”

    Girls, please.  Mr. Wow hasn’t eaten all day.

    Jeremey Weiner and Kevin Spacey chatting.  Kevin talking up “Social Network” as one of the exec producers…

    Marisa Tomei…it’s not good. 

    I think I saw Justin TimberlaKE.  hot.

    Scarlett…ran out of combs.  looks likes she’s wearing a tee-shirt under that transparent lace number. 

  29. avatar J G says:

    I can’t find Tim Gunn. I agree, he would add a touch of elegance….

  30. avatar J G says:

    Agreed re: Marisa and Scarlett…They went for the “I just woke up” look…

  31. avatar Tee Zee says:

    Tim Gunn, please sit down and have a talk with Scarlett Johansson!

  32. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Oh, switched over to the ABC red carpet.  Tim Gunn with Mila.  She is adorable.  Still hating the dress.

    More from Hailee in her princess gown.  Sweet child.

    ABC giving excellent close-ups.

    Now Jesse Eisenberg in a business suit.  Very cute. 

  33. avatar J G says:

    Yes, much better on ABC.

  34. avatar Daniel Sugar says:

    You can FedEx Jesse Eisenberg right over.

  35. avatar Community Manager says:

    Hailee’s dress is great!

  36. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Sharon, Sharon, Sharon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!    Thank you, girl.   I hope she presents.

    And she was great with Piers Morgan last week. (back on E!—the network.)

    Ryan and Justin T.    Justin in  a a tux.  Love him as an actor.   And he doesn’t Facebook.  Good, we can marry.

  37. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Marisa Tomei…beautiful from the shoulders up.  Wonderful hair (tip to Scarlett–this is the way to wear “casual” locks)

  38. avatar J G says:

    I missed Sharon. I loved her on Piers too. She just through her head back and had a great laugh when he asked her if her forhead moves. Her response…”does yours?”

  39. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Jennifer Laurence on ABC…simple red.  She could have done more.  Especially because if you look quick, she resembles a refreshed Kate Hudson.

  40. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Rusell Brand’s mom.  Hot.  (tip to Scarlett–this is how you wear transparent lace)

  41. avatar Richard Bassett says:

    All the gowns look alike to me. I am missing that gay gene

  42. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Melissa Leo with Tim.

    In papier mache?  THis dress looks like it hurts.

  43. avatar Tee Zee says:

    Justin, please shave. Rockin the tux.

  44. avatar Mr. Wow says:

    Helena Bohman Carter.  Typical.  Fine.  This is her style.

    More nondescript from Hillary Swank.

  45. avatar J G says:

    Nicole has arrived. I do love her. I do. She’s one of my favorites.
