Dean James

I dunno, I thought Amy Adams looked like she was trying to imitate a feather duster.... but you're right about Octavia Spencer. Very classy... as was Dame Shirley Bassey. I thought her dress was pretty cool!

I really did think they were all just gorgeous last night. Well, except one. But I decided not to be nasty. Even though if I had all that money and time and a stylist and that much incentive . . .

Chantelle Aimée

My two favorites are definitely Helena Bonham Carter and Zoe Saldana. There weren't many this year that I felt were drop-dead, but on the other hand, on the whole they were better than some past years.


My two favorites were Jennifer Aniston's and Charlize Theron's dancing dress. Jennifer Lawrence even fell gracefully, and handled the fact that she fell with such poise, I thought. I also liked Shirley Basset's, and was glad to see her pipes are still great. I also noticed the star who tugged her undies, and I thought that maybe strutting that stage so often had made her a little too blase about it.

Elaine Viets

I want to be Jane Fonda when I grow up. Heck, I wouldn't mind looking like her now.

Dana Cameron

Charlize Theron x2 and Jennifer Lawrence's were the ones that caught my eye as the prettiest. Zoe Saldana's I loved (except for the belt) and Halle Berry's reminded me of Katherine Hepburn's look--striking, architectural.

Hank Phillippi Ryan

I loved Michelle Obama's! Wouldn't that be fun to wear?

And I agree, Dean, the gray feathers. Puh.

I'm in love with Jennfier Lawrence. What a recovery! Truly, educational.

And oh, smiling, right..stepping on her dress.Uh-HUH.

Charlaine Harris

I did love Zoe Saldana's dress; the two tones of gray at the bottom, wow! I felt so sorry for Kristen Stewart, who was obviously in pain and just as obviously had not brought her stylist (she had stepped on glass that day). But I wanted to find Melissa McCarthy's stylist and slap him/her upside the head. Then I asked myself, Why do I get sucked in, year after year? But I do.

Melissa McCarthy was indeed the name I didn't want to say (having taken my Seth-McFword-antidote vow not to be snarky)but you're right, Charlaine - her stylist is the one to smack!

Cinema Dave

The Musical Performances at the Oscars were far better than the Grammys.

I will take Shirley Bassey and Adele over Justine Timberlake and JayZee any day.

catriona mcpherson

Agree, Cinema Dave. I thought all the song and dance stuff was great too. Adele and Jennifer Hudson were wonderful but I did think Shirley B could learn a thing or two from Barbra S about how to deal with losing the top of your range. I was slightly on edge during Goldfinger and not at all during The Way We Were.

Donna Andrews

I feel remiss. About the only fashion comment I made during the whole show was how odd that so many of the guys winning Oscars for behind the camera stuff had long manes of blond or gray hair.

catriona mcpherson

Donna - I know! One of the youngsters I was watching with commented that "the Malfoys have really got it sewn up this year".
