I'm watching the Oscars pre-show now- Anyone there? Anyone? Join the conversation in the comments and tell me what you think of the Oscar fashions so far.
I told my 6-year-old daughter all about the show and she disappeared up to her room to prepare for the big event.
Click through to see how she looks now as we watch the pre-show together!
She's ready to go!
And so am I! I'll time stamp my entries so that you can keep up with the latest.
6:14 CST: So far, I'm loving Hailee Steinfeld's gorgeous dress. She looks beautiful and age-appropriate.
As for Mila Kunis-- Did you see Tim Gunn interviewing her? She was exposing so much boob that it made me uncomfortable.
General observation: Every single actress is way too skinny. Just a few years ago, there was much more of a range of sizes at the Oscars, from super-skinny to skinny to sort of skiny. Now it's all super-skinny. There must be a new black market weight-loss drug out there now...
6:21 CST: Michelle Williams manages once again to look twice her age on the red carpet...
6:28 CST: OMG. Maria Menounos is wearing a Bumpit. And Cate Blanchett's dress is just. Wrong. Her bob looks cute, though.
6:45 CST: Valenfakebaketino. Wow. Fortunately, he's countered by Anne Hathaway, who looks AMAZING and gets my early vote for best dressed on the red carpet.
6:56 CST: Jennifer Hudson looks HAWT.
6:59 CST: Cate Blanchett looks um. Bad.
7:38 CST: Anne Hathaway looks stunning as hostess.
7:59 CST: Melissa Leo would have done better to have left the Battenberg to the duvet.
8:12 CST: *yawwwwwwwn*
8:15 CST: Javier Bardem gained some baby weight right along with Penelope Cruz. LOVE IT. LOL
8:43 CST: Sorry. I must've fallen asleep.
8:56 CST: Oh Cate. That dress. THAT DRESS.
9:25 CST: Wow. Oprah looks different when the cameras aren't hers...
9:41 CST: LOVING Anne Hathaway's deep red sequined dress.
10:06 CST: Annette Bening's dress was perfectly age appropriate and flattering. If she'd worn her hair in a chignon, she would have looked amazing.
10:12 CST: James Franco looks like he's been holding in a fart all night.
10:18 CST: Hooray for Natalie Portman! LOVE HER. This girl can do no wrong... unless we're talking about her tassel earrings.
10:27 CST: Best line EVER after winning an Oscar comes from Colin Firth: "I have a feeling my career has just peaked."
10:34 CST: Overall, this Oscars has been a disappointment. James Franco was beyond awful. Anne Hathaway was lovely, but couldn't carry the show with those bad lines. Bring back the funny, wicked comedian host. PLEASE.
