Jennifer Lawrence!!!

Contrary to what some people think, I actually like Jennifer Lawrence. I don't love her (I didn't like her Hunger Games performance so much) but when I watched Silver Linings Playbook and saw the crazy-eyes scene in the diner and the scene where she mouthed off on Robert de Niro (you don't slap down de Niro and get away with it!), my thought bubble was, "Oh dear heavens. Best actress in the bag!"

Look at that face! Clearly someone who knows how to dig deep within her soul! I am not making fun of her! I'm kinda referring to someone else, more celebrated than Jennifer, a much bigger star but with only one facial expression—like she smelled something bad.

Anyway. Where was I? Oh, Jennifer winning the Best Actress Oscar! Am I the only one who thinks Jennifer's fall was adorable? It made her look like she was so overwhelmed at her win that she can't think or walk straight! Love Hugh Jackman (and, just found out, Bradley Cooper, too!) for rushing to her aid.

Even her speech was cute! She was dazed, totally having an out-of-body experience. Kinda reminded me of Gwyneth Paltrow, but cuter. Unlike, say, Anne Hathaway, who obviously expected to win because her speech rolled off her tongue so easily.

Excited to see more of Jennifer Lawrence's work! I hope she doesn't lose her authenticity. Many actors, as they get bigger, protect themselves by building a wall around them—a gleaming, smiling facade. I hope we allow Jennifer to be herself. I mean, she does this:

She's so real, my heart aches! Love. Her!

Congratulations! You so deserve this!

My favorite Oscar gowns

Missed the Oscars red carpet yet again because Destiny Cable doesn't have Velvet Channel or any channel that shows the pre-awards glam. Oh well. Good thing there's Just Jared and his red-carpet report!

Here are my absolute favorites!
Sandra Bullock 
Sandra looked absolutely gorgeous in this red Vera Wang. She looked so amazing, she didn't need jewelry. Her arms are perfect!

Camila Alves
Matthew McConaughey's baby mama in a black Kaufman Franco ballgown is elegant and hot. Just look at the daring bodice! I really really need to get back in shape! I won't have these breasts for long so I have to show them off like Camila did!

Helen Mirren
When I'm in my 60s, I want to look like her! Helen's always had the most amazing taste in clothes, as evidenced by this Vivienne Westwood Couture gown that showcases all her womanly curves. Helen makes me look forward to the golden years because she never looks dowdy or boring or sad or alarming.I'm really studying her style!

Hailee Stanfield
And we have someone very young on our list but, just like Helen, Hailee knows how to dress her age. Here, Hailee, in a Marchesa with a ballerina hemline, looks young and fun and sweet and ethereal--just like a young girl should look like!

I just wanted to say that because I just saw photos from my niece's prom and I was appalled at the makeup and gowns. Really. They all looked 40! I am oh so glad my niece listened to my and my sister's advice. My niece became prom queen!

Gwyneth Paltrow
Well, you all know that I want to be Gwyneth when I grow up! Gwyneth totally rocked this Calvin Klein gown. I love all of Calvin Klein's gowns this awards season. I also loved the pink gown Claire Danes wore at the Golden Globes. All very simple, all very sexy, all very stunning.

Celine Dion
Another designer I love is Giorgio Armani and Celine was just celestial in this Armani Prive creation. She gave birth to twins just four months ago! Argh. I really have to hit the treadmill. For a minute there, though, I thought she was wearing the Heart of the Ocean.

I know, I know. My picks are kinda boring. All black and white and simple. I dunno what happened to me! I used to wear all the colors of the rainbow!

P.S. I am oh so happy Colin Firth and The King's Speech won! Amazing performance and a beautiful movie! Bravo!
