And The King Reigns... at the Oscars!!

Well, well, well-- the Oscars were quite a deal tonight! I didn't even eat dinner until after Best Picture was announced.

It was a pretty gratifying night.

(This is gonna be a short post, I'm sorry. I'll do a longer Oscar post with my very own commentary tomorrow, hopefully, after my Making-Of post {yay!})

And Anne Hathaway kept changing dresses, which was seriously amusing. After every single commercial break, the camera would come back to her and James Franco (who were hosting this year), and she would have a totally different dress on each time. She makes me laugh. 

I didn't realize how funny James Franco was until tonight. For such a hilarious guy, he gets some pretty intense roles! (127 Hours, and The Great Raid, for two.)

Did anybody else watch the Oscars tonight? How'd you feel about the fact that an animated film made it into the list of Best Picture Nominees?? I don't know- I know it's happened- last year with UP, and a while back with Beauty and the Beast-- it seemed strange to me anyhow.

Moving on....

Anyway.. there's a short Oscar synopsis for you! Did anybody else watch? What did you think??

Well, I'll be back tomorrow! See y'all lovely folks later!

I only saw the pre-Oscar show on the Red Carpet. Well, only part of it.

That's pretty funny that Anne Hathaway kept changing dresses.
