The 83rd Annual Academy Awards

A week ago were the 83rd Annual Academy Awards...also known as: the Oscars! We watched them sitting all cosy in Erika's living room and admiring the glamour of the evening in Los Angeles and commenting on beautiful dresses the actress's wore, good movies (some that we still want to see!), and fantastic actors and actresses of the year.
Favourite dress of the evening: the adorable Hailee Steinfeld. Both of us are currently in love with the style of dress with the tank top sleeves made of sheer silk, and the fabric coming up to the bust, making a very feminine fifties looking dress--preferrably in pink!
Loved how the amazing Christian Bale, with his brilliant talking voice and acting skills, won for best supporting actor and gave the most adorable speech, getting a bit teary-eyed towards the end. 
Thought the theatre that held the Oscars was completely gorgeous. We love the glamour and classiness of Oscars night! We both would love to get into acting and have always fancied the thought of red carpets, dressed in glamorous designer dresses you've taken months to choose, and awards shows...but especially the Oscars! 
And we certainly agreed that James Franco and Anne Hathaway did an adorable job hosting the show! Anne was so cute and excited, it made us laugh. 
 
Loved looking at old photos from the 1954 Oscars when Audrey Hepburn won best actress! She was just way too adorable and sweet. Both of us talked about how we love how classy the Oscars have stayed and for how long they've been happening! It's just so brilliant. 
We quite enjoyed viewing the glamorous evening, eating popcorn, making delicious smoothies (we both can make a pretty grand one!), munching on M&M's, and wishing Deathly Hallows had been nominated for more awards-hopefully more for part 2!
And lastly, if any of you were lucky enough to view this hilarious video that played at Oscars of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Toy Story 3, Social Network, and Twilight auto-tuned. So brilliant! The Harry Potter one is the best...because it was so shocking and so awesome that they did it to Harry Potter and the Twilight one is so funny! 
Ah, Deathly Hallows♥ How brilliant and amazing you are! We can't wait to watch it once it comes out on DVD April 15th. We're planning to have a sleepover and watch it and perhaps a couple other Potter films. Ah! We can't handle how much we love Harry Potter, they're so brilliant. 131 days until part 2! We know it will blow our minds just like part 1. We are hoping and wishing that we'll be able to go to the premiere in New York City for part 2. 

Hope you enjoyed the Oscars as much as us and had a generally lovely night. What award were you most excited about? Which actress did you think looked loveliest? 

Another post to come this week, dears!

  2. What a fun Oscar party! And yes, I liked Hailee Steinfeld dress the best too. And her little hairband, it was the perfect accessory. Of all the winners, I think Christian Bale deserved it the most, and I hope he will win best actor one day too.
