Comparing it to last year I'd say the night itself was a lot more fun because this time I had Paul and Zero and champagne, but the ceremony itself wasn't as good. As awesome as Neil Patrick Harris was, his song didn't come anywhere near the epic awesomeness of Hugh Jackman's opening number. And I thought Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin should have had more to do.
Anyway, on to the dresses:
Ones I liked:
She looks like a pretty, pretty princess.
If I saw the dress by itself I'd probably hate it but it looks really good on her.
On the other hand, I love this dress to pieces but I'm still not sure it suits Cameron.
I think this may be my favourite dress of the night. It's a big glamorous mullet with little scissors and forks and whatnot sewn onto it and it looks absolutely gorgeous!
Simple and elegant. I like it.
I think this dress looks amazing. It really suits her size and the silver leaf touches accent it perfectly.
Ones I'm Not Sure About:
It's not that bad but it's not good either.
Similar to Demi's. I put this dress in this section because I really liked it when she was presenting but from this angle it just looks ridiculous.
Maybe I'm biased because of who's in the dress but I don't think it really works for her.
I wouldn't say it's a bad dress but it's not what I'd call an Oscar dress.
Meryl playing it safe in a dress that looks a bit like a dressing gown.
I quite like the skirt but the lingerie top is just weird. It needs more up there to balance it out. It's almost like she's half dressed and forgotten to put her top on.
Eh, not bad. Not great either.
I like the basic idea but I think it's gone a bit overboard with the ruching.
It's a nice style but I'm not sure about the material.
The top is very pretty but I really don't like the skirt.
I kinda like it. I liked it when I first saw it but there's just something about it that doesn't seem quite right.
I stand by my original comment. Her dress has exploded and is trying to escape.
Ones I Don't Like:
"Look! Look here! These are where my breasts go!"
I don't know what made anyone think this was a good look.
The top doesn't match the skirt and the skirt is hideous anyway. It kinda looks like baggy trousers.
It looks like something you'd wear at the beach on holiday.
Sarah Jessica Parker
Oh SJP, not only do you have terrifying eyes but your dress is horrible. It looks like you've wrapped a satin towel around your breasts and secured it with what appears to be a giant tiara.
No. No, no, no, no, no. I want to fly over to America and slap Tina Fey for doing this to herself. It's hideous. Absolutely hideous.
I'm not sure there are any words to do justice to this dress. Not only is the skirt made of a giant muppet but the very top part looks like it comes from a completely different outfit.
I thought that Faith Hill looked good when I could only see her from the chest up. I now retract that statement.
I don't know who this woman is but I had to include her because this dress is one of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen.
And as with last year I feel I must give a mention to a certain man who was there:
Nick Park and his hand-made green wrapping paper bow tie!
