The Oscars this year happened to fall on a night where we were already having a party to celebrate birthdays in the family – so it became an impromptu little Oscar party with all of us gathered around the tv with pizza, sodas, and chocolate desserts. We laughed, admired, and were amazed at this year’s surprises.
There were many memorable moments… and in case you didn’t care for the Oscars, here’s what you might’ve missed!
You know it’s an epic selfie when it includes famous celebrities having a blast together at one of their “most formal events!”
I love Sandra Bullocks reaction to Ellen’s pop-up intercessions…. Sandra still looks amazing, and her performance in Gravity was beautiful.
Ellen surprised everyone and actually ordered pizza (I thought she was just joking, as did most everyone else)! The pizza delivery man, Edgar Martirosyan, thought he would only be delivering to people backstage!
Martirosyan is actually the owner of the Hollywood franchise location that he bought 5 years ago; apparently the store was busy and so he delivered the pizza himself. Ellen passed around a hat and ended up giving him a $1,000 tip!
Jim Carrey also made a hilarious appearance – so good to see him again.
Idina Menzel performed her Frozen song Let it Go.
Olivia Wilde with her husband glowing from pregnancy in a simple yet elegant gown – you could not even tell she was pregnant until she turned to the side. And her hairstyle was perfect.
Love seeing gorgeous pregnant women… which brings me to another glamorous one, Kerry Washington
Bette Midler gave a moving performance of the Wind Beneath My Wings,
Matthew McCounaughey and his first ever Oscar
Jennifer Lawrence was playful and radiant… as always!
American Hustle stars
Meryl Streep danced with Happy singer, Pharrell Williams
Cate Blanchett and her Oscar for Blue Jasmine, loved her earrings and gown
Lupita Nyong’o accepted her award for supporting actress in 12 Years a Slave
It’s always intriguing to see the actors and actresses who star in our favorite movies live, and this year was epic in catching their unplanned reactions.
The poise, the beauty, and the talent. Congrats for another great Oscar year!
