It's the Oscars! And we're here to talk fashion and politics. Except, forget politics!
A h, awards season. It never disappoints, even when the red carpet styles...well, disappoint. That's part of the fun! My bestie Jason and I let you all into our awards show viewing circle with the Grammys a few weeks back. You seemed to like it, so come along with us as we recap the most important awards show of the season, complete with our most important comments! It's the 2017 Academy Awards!
Jason on Octavia Spencer: Look how awesome she looks!...(camera pans down)...Oh. How many Muppets had to die for that?"
Jason on Brie Larson: That. That's architecture.
Jason: Jessica Biel looks like someone took an Oscar, kicked it down the stairs and made a dress. (For what it's worth, Rachel: YOU ARE SO RIGHT.)
Red carpet interviewer on Casey Affleck: Look who I found on the stairs!
Rachel: On the stairs? Or under them?
Rachel: Keith Urban's hair never changes. And I don't mean he never changes styles. I mean his individual hairs NEVER EVER move. EVER.
Rachel: I feel like Janelle Monae's stylist is playing a practical joke on all of us.
Jason: What is that, Leslie Mann?
Rachel: Asked and answered.
An aside, by both of us, as The Rock comes on stage: Velour. *GIANT SIGH* OK Fine.
Another aside, as Lin-Manuel Miranda comes out to rap-speak about "Moana": We love Lin. EVERYONE LOVES LIN. But does this feel a smidge like a push for him to get a PEGOT. Yes, of course, he deserves it but...OK fine.
All of us, as they played Viola Davis off: Was that.... "The Heat Is On." I mean, Sure!
General observation: What is up with the wrist-to-wrist clap all the A-listers are doing? And why?
Becca, Jason's wife, as they announce the nominees for Best Animated Film: I feel like a turtle is nominated every year.
Dakota Johnson: Horrid
Nicole Kidman: Perfection, finally.
Taraji P. Henson: SO GOOD. Also, finally.
Emma Stone: Neck up, flawless. Neck to waist, boring. Waist to floor, LOVE.
Jason's Fav: Brie Larson (see above). "I like the architecture of that dress. I thought it was classically different. In that it was classic, but something we haven't seen before."
Rachel's Fav: Shockingly, for the first time ever because usually I can't stand any of her red carpet looks: Nicole Kidman!
