The Oscars 2012
As it is almost a tradition for this kind of events, I met with my friends at one of their apartment. That's what happens when we don't have a TV in our own place. Anyways, watching these shows by myself makes me bored really quick. So, there we were siting in front of the TV with a table full of junk food. I have to mention that my friend Andrea just graduated from a culinary school in NYC and she's the best baking stuff... She's also the best increasing our calories and sugar intake! But how delicious it was!

We started watching the red carpet thing. I am awful at it. I never know who those people are. It even took me a while to recognize Cameron Diaz when she was being interviewed! It was actually like a fashion lecture from the girls to the boys in the group. I find it funny how every single woman in the red carpet has a spectacular and unique dress, and then all men are looking exactly the same! If I was an actor, I would be happy to be a male so that I wouldn't have to worry about this color or that purse...
The show itself was quite looooong. More than 3 hours of speeches and awards. There were some funny moments and the performance by Cirque du Soleil was amazing. However, we were all waiting especially for the best actor, best actress and best movie awards, which were actually the last three to be announced. What a coincidence!
I realized this year there have been great movies. The best movie award was for The Artist, which I haven't seen yet! To be honest, I was hoping for The Help to win that one. I really loved that movie. At least, Octavia Spencer won the Oscar to the best female supporting actress for her role in the movie. You can check the trailer here:
Another award that I was happy for was the best actress, which went to Meryl Streep for her performance in the movie Iron Lady. It was one of my favorite movies this year, and I think she was amazing and she really deserved it. How crazy is it, though, that this was the 17th time she's been nominated at the Oscars!
I have a huge list of movies to watch now. I also have hundreds of calories to burn after tonight! Bad combination. Oh well, I only live once! Now time to sleep to start the week with my batteries charged. I hope you have a good one! See you soon!
