Who Watched!?



I am very guilty of watching the Oscars last night! And as completely ridiculous as this sounds, I totally cried at parts. NO, I am no fanatic for any star or their movie, but I get all happy for them when they are obviously totally emotional about winning. Ever since I served a mission, my emotions take such a stronger hold on me, and I'm a total basketcase with most anything. When Marion Cotillard won Best Actress and was so surprised and happy and crying...you should've seen me! I tried to mask my happiness for her from Stephen, cause he likes to make fun- to no avail! So why not reveal my sillyness to all my wonderful friends? But if you saw my previous post about Extreme Makeover Home Edition, you've already learned this about me. Oh the fun! (I'm no Dyanna Moore, but am well on my way!)
So was there anyone else besides me that didn't know who a lot of the nominees were? Half of that stems from the fact that I haven't seen hardly any movies at all last year. Obviously I was majorly in favor of the Bourne Ultimatem and Enchanted since I'd seen those. I just love Amy Adams now too. How cute is she? She seemed just as elegant and outgoing as ever last night. She reminds me of older Hollywood days when they could sing, dance, and act. All in all, I'm less inclined to watch next year unless I'm watching a lot more movies (that happen to not be rated R!).

Yeah I just glanced at the nominees and knew hardly any of them so we didn't watch. I can't remember the last time I watched the Oscars!

Okay we totally had it on as background noise...wanted to see the clothes, didn't really care about the nominees! But since you admitted it first, I guess i'll fess up that I teared up for Marion too! Something about her was so genuine and sweet! But I cried on an episode of Saved by the Bell once, so I'm not a hard sell:)

Guilty, I watched!! I love that french girl who won for best actress, Rob made fun of her speech. (must be a guy thing)

Matt and I watched, but he was controlling the remote. Needless to say, I didn't get to hear any acceptance speeches. Too cheesy for him I guess! I loved Enchanted too!

We watched it on DVR so we could fast forward (mainly me)... I fell asleep a few times, ha ha. First time in like 4 years we've watched. No tears for me.... we were voting for Rattatouille all the way (um, the only one we've seen!). I cry watching One Tree Hill all the time!! LOL

I love to watch the Oscars on DVR because if I don't know the person or don't care to listen to a particular speech, I can fast forward- haha! One of the things I love about it is seeing all of the beautiful dresses. I have it recorded but have not had the chance to watch them yet. Mike has no desire to, so it looks like it will be me and Oscar in a few nights when he's out-of-town!
