The Oscars came and there were no big surprises except for all the people who presumed Seth MacFarlane will be preppy and polite. He was exactly himself, even a bit censored but very resourceful and quick.
Even though I am not his fan I appreciate his skill and cleverness.All in all it was fun and far better than last two years.And really let's all just relax and stop defendinding women's rights when they are not violated.The jokes are just jokes but far bigger issue for women today is the fact that only Kathryn Bigelow managed to get an Oscar for directing a few years ago or the fact that women producers or studio bosses are so unbearably rare.This is certainly not Seth's fault.
But the night was simply fantastic for my whispering.
Channing Tatum continues to delight me,his dancing routine with stunning Charlize Theron made people drool and he was very humble in all his appearances,proving that he knows his place in the cruel hierarchy of Tinseltown.
The women were beautiful,with a few appalling exceptions.
Jessica Chastain was simply perfect.I love her and respect her acting versatility and it made me very happy to see her having fun and enjoying her well deserved success.Nominations are a big deal,let's not forget that and it is her second in a very short period of time.Congratulations Jessica!
Naomi Watts looked fantastic,modern and edgy,her nomination well deserved but she is still far from Jessica,Jennifer or Emmanuelle Riva.
Mme Emmanuelle Riva is the epitome of French chic and cool,her performance in one of the greatest movies ever made was brilliant and the Oscar could have happened to her.It was great to see a woman of her age shine in such a demanding role.
The youngest nominee,Quvenzhane Wallis, is very funny,relaxed and obviously excellent actress and I hope that people who work with her will know how to continue nurturing that exceptional talent.Being a child prodigy in acting business is very tricky and I am very interested in watching her develop.
And finally Jennifer Lawrence.Oh dear,where to start?From the" Winter Bone" to this day I knew she would rule the acting world some day.She is exceptionally talented but more than that she is simply a force of nature, a tomboy,a girl with no inhibitions and a performer so smart that she turns the most embarrassing moments in personal triumphs in a split second.
Her role in "Silver Linings Playbook" was made to measure to accentuate all her strengths.She is effortlessly sexy,she is wild,she is omnipresent and yet she gives her partners a chance to shine beside her.It was a long time since I have seen a girl so brilliant, in some ways she reminds me of Julia Roberts.I sincerely hope that she will continue to choose her roles very carefully and that her road will be free of major Hollywood slips.
My whisper for her is the following:
- please follow only your heart in choosing projects,Your next step is extremely important since many great actresses simply ruined their careers after receiving the Oscar
- and never ever wear complicated dresses on big occasions
Amy Adams is a beautiful woman and a very good actress.Her choices so far were excellent,I liked her the best in "Fighter" but somehow awards slip from her fingers.Like Laura Linney,she constantly gets nominated and disappointed. In my opinion she deserved the Oscar more than our poor Fantine but she deserved it every time she got nominated.I will continue to root for Amy,her quiet shy charm and serious devotion as well as her struggle to act in interesting projects impress me. I wish her all the best and the Oscar will come soon enough!
Sally Fields,a legend.I loved to see her again in movies,I envy her the chance of working with a miraculous Daniel Day Lewis and she could have also gotten the award.She deserved it and I hope to see her again on the big screen.
The same goes for Helen Hunt,a great talent and charming and cool woman.She is never to eager and somehow she manages everything with unbearable lightness.I know she will get nominated and win again and again and I am glad for her.
Jackie Weaver is a nice funny lady but her nomination baffles me still.
And then the object of so many jokes,the insufferable Anne Hathaway who obviously didn't read my blog and will never ever just relax.
Oh Anne,such a shame!Receiving Your first Academy award while Your nipples got their twitter account?????WTF?????Even though I find the global hate movement towards Anne odious I can't help but getting furious with that girl and much more with people who work for her!What were they thinking, all of them?For months now she is the object of scrutiny,gossip,irrational hate and at the most important moment in her life she gives everyone a reason to convulse with laughter?
She is who she is,a neurotic artist,an insecure young woman who simply can't find a way to become likable.But still,she is a good actress and a beautiful girl and to ruin that it takes an entourage of morons.
The girl just got an Oscar and all everyone is talking about is her idiotic dress??????????????It is a nightmare.We can discuss her Fantine,I admit that her getting the Oscar instead of all the other nominees is maybe not fair but it was the vote.And she got all the awards this season so that says it all.
But to ruin a magical moment with things that should be so simple to solve??????She is beautiful, just find her a great dress and that's it.And finally,who are her PR people?Don't they know how to fix things?Her decline started two years ago with the Oscar hosting so what were they doing during that time?Are they trying to ruin her completely?Even if she was a stubborn woman who wanted to do everything on her own,there are always ways to create an image less irritating than the one she continues to force on the public.What are her parents doing?Her husband?They are the people closest to her and I hope well intentioned so for the love of God give her some sound advice!Her blabbering about forces in universe and that insufferable false "I love You all" attitude is just obnoxious.
So a whisper for her parents,husband,all of her entourage:
- get a grip people,advise and handle the girl,she is not Charlie Sheen for the love of God but she is drawing so much hatred that it will ruin her career completely
- find new stylists ASAP,the Prada disaster was really a major DISASTER
And a scream to Anne:
- Anne,sincere congratulations on Your Oscar,You deserve it and You will deserve it again but now is the time to change Your attitude,You may find it charming but it simply isn't working!Reinvent Yourself and rely on Your exceptional talent in doing it!
P.S.I was delighted to see the fabulous Mrs Michelle Obama taking part in this festive occasion!
