And so, it's that time of the year again. The culmination of an entire year's worth of movie watching, it's time to honor the 'best of the best' in film for the past year and of course, ogle at the pretty dresses everyone is wearing. Basically, it's the end of awards season at the Academy Awards. It's on it's 84th year and this time, it brings back 9-time host, Billy Crystal.
I'm not hard to please, but compared to last year, this year was definitely tamer. Not only were the nominees a little 'safe' but even the show was. No offense to Billy, he did a good job, but I guess anything will look tame compared to last year's craziness (not necessarily a good crazy).
And still, here I am, doing the usual just because I can't help it. I have to say, I'm actually happy with the winners -- albeit most of them utterly predictable with how the awards season has been going.

Octavia Spencer really just hit a home run this entire season and she looked great in her Tadashi Shoji dress. That's a winner all the way. Let's not forget Angelina Jolie's meme-inducing but totally gorgeous Atelier Versace dress. I've never seen her really work a dress that much and though it got a little crazy at times, there was reason to show it off. She looked smashing in it. It was nice she was a good sport about it too.
Even if Leslie Mann was only there in a date capacity, she looked so stunning in her Robert Cavalli gown. I swear Judd Apatow is one lucky guy. And though it wasn't a hit with many, I actually really liked Berenice Bejo's Elie Saab Couture dress. She just looked really elegant in it.
And say what you will about George Clooney's 'dates' to these awards shows but Stacy Keibler looked amazing in her Marchesa dress. George didn't need to win a little golden man when he had a golden girl next to him. Seriously. Jessica Chastain was pretty much a winner too in her Alexander McQueen gown. She looked so adorable when she was focused on during the announcement of nominees. It was like she was embarrassed to be there. Such a cutie, really.

And though she's down below, Mia Wasikowska wasn't quite black, but wasn't quite color either. I actually liked the detail of her Antonio Berardi dress. It was anything but boring.
Though Lily Collins looked very much a princess (very Snow White, yes?), she still looked pretty cute in her Monique Lhuillier dress. And though Shailene Woodley looked great at the awards, she looked even better at the after parties. I really liked her mini Proenza Schouler dress. It was young and fun and so her.
Who were your best and worst dressed? Favorite couples? Favorite guys? I'm glad awards season is over again. It's always fun while it lasts but a little tiring, yes? And once again, I'm just following from my computer. Until next year, kids!
