Two Teens And Their Mama: All Glammed Up Take Two

All Glammed Up Take Two


Remember way back on Friday when I wrote that I never watch the actual Academy Awards ceremony?  I decided to go ahead and give it a try this year, and it wasn't too bad.  It helped that I was able to DVR the show and fast forward through all the boring parts.  Plus, I think Neil Patrick Harris is adorable, and while he's no Ellen, he did a pretty good job.

I discovered a few new movies to put on my Netflix, and overall I found the acceptance speeches that I watched to be heartfelt and to the point.  I love that JK Simmons won for best supporting actor - I think he's so talented and underrated.  My boys said, "Hey, that's the guy from the insurance commercials".  Sigh.

My favorite part of the whole show was Julie Andrews.  Is there anyone more beautiful, elegant and lovely in all of Hollywood than Julie Andrews? 



In honor of the 50th anniversary of The Sound of Music, Lady Gaga sang a medley of songs from the film.  I have to admit, I was a little concerned about that choice.  But she gave a beautiful performance, and it was the best I've ever heard her sing.

It's a good thing I enjoyed the ceremony, because I found the red carpet to be very ho hum, and there wasn't a single dress that wowed me.  Meryl Streep looked lovely in her three piece ensemble by Lanvin, and Rosamund Pike in Givenchy and Lupita Nyong'o in Calvin Klein Collection were my favorite looks.



I wonder how my Aunt's party in Las Vegas is going?  I bet they're having a lot more fun than the attendees at the Academy Awards!

  2. I adore Julie Andrews! Lady Gaga looked amazing and sounded great! I loved Lupita & Rosamund's dresses! Anna Kendrick's dress was another of my favorites!

  4. I typically don't watch the Oscars either and I missed the Red Carpet and other portions but I did catch a little of the show. Saw the Lady Gaga & Julie Andrews on a clip this morning. She did sing beautifully - very talented. Who knew? Thanks for the synopsis in this post! Have a lovely day, friend!

  6. We tried to watch the show, but with 6 kids running around...made it hard to hear, LOL. But at least it was on in the background of all the noise? LOL.

  7. I loved Meryl's outfit. I was a bit bored with the host but I was moved by the singing of Glory more than Lady Gaga.

    1. Glory was beautiful. I thought Neil Patrick Harris was okay - not great, but okay.

    I'm laughing about JK Simmons.
    I usually watch the Oscars but I missed them this year and I'm a bit sad about it!

    1. I loved the red dress. Poor JK Simmons - he's just an insurance salesman to my kids!

  11. Hi Lana! Been reading through your blog. You and I have the same tastes. I did a similar post on the Oscars on Monday and our two top fav dresses matched! I also like your Midlife Woman series. I'm 42 and I don't think I've hit the perimenopausal (I know I misspelled that, but you know what I mean) quite yet, but I have begun experience a few symptoms from time to time. Lawd! Help me and my family when it hits! Knowing my luck, I'll be going through menopause while my daughter is going through puberty! Heaven help my poor husband!!
