So all day at work people are talking about whether or not Ellen DeGeneres did a good job hosting the Oscars last night. I think she did a great job. I was cracking up when she made the joke about no one voting for Jennifer Hudson on American Idol and Jennifer still ended up with an Oscar nomination...and then Ellen turned to Al Gore and said "America did vote for you and...."
I liked the fact that Ellen could make jokes about herself and others, but not have it be too offensive to anyone watching at home.
But speaking of offensive, what were some of the stars wearing! Meryl Streep's giant orange beaded necklace was horrible. It looked like she got ready in the dark, when money's not an issue, there's no excuse for that.
Some of the best dressed, Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Kate Winslet, Reese Witherspoon and, of course, George Clooney!
For me, the most exciting moment was seeing Jennifer Hudson win for Best Supporting Actress. She's proved some of Hollywood's most powerful people wrong and she's made Simon Cowell eat his words, who wouldn't want to do that!
