Awards season wrap up

Yesterday was just a big awards day.  I watched the Independent Spirit Awards from Saturday.  I really love Independent films.  I usually don't make a "must see" list for the Independents, but always end up seeing a bunch of them anyway.  I was so happy that ISA gave lots of love to one of my favorite films of the year, Silver Linings Playbook

Of course, last night was all about watching and tweeting the Academy Awards.  Can someone please tell me how we ever watched these shows before twitter and texting was a part of our lives?  I honestly cannot remember! 

I was pretty pleased with how the awards shook out last night. I was over the moon that Jennifer Lawrence won Best Actress for Silver Linings Playbook.   I enjoyed the performances of Adele and the cast of Les Mis, and I was beyond thrilled that Argo took home the Oscar for Best Film.


You know, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon gave one of my favorite acceptance speeches of all time.  Do you remember it?  So much joy.  So much exuberance.  Such baby faces! 


Ben didn't disappoint this year either.  What a truly heartfelt speech.  Seriously, it brought me to tears (but thanks to texting, I know I wasn't alone in that!). 


I honestly just love Jenn and Ben (you know I call them that like we are BFFs).  I think they are the cutest little family. 

I thought Jennifer Lawrence looked gorgeous in Dior last night.  One of my fav dresses for sure.  Poor thing stumbled getting up the stairs, but that's one of the things that I've grown to love about J-Law this awards season.  She is so down-to-earth! 

In other fashion news, I also loved Amy Adams dress.  I thought Jenn Garner had the best jewelry for that wowsa necklace she was wearing. 

Did you watch?  What did you think?  Whose fashion did you love/hate?

HATED HATED HATED anne hathaway's dress. those nipples will put an eye out! and, honestly, not to be completely snarky, but she bugs the heck out of me! i get so weary of her fake humbleness--like taylor swift.
