Before I officially move on to the next, here’s my Rhona Rhetoric adieu to awards season, Oscars style…
1. Charlize Theron = Best Dressed at the Oscars. Hands down. The short cut with that Dior Couture gown was absolutely amazing. A close friend quipped “What about Halle Berry?” Halle looked great, too. In fact, Halle looks great consistently (as mentioned in previous posts). In my mind, she is in the Red Carpet Hall of Fame and has thus received her “yellow jacket,” if you will. Halle and red carpet glory is a given combination, but Charlize simply dazzled.
2. They Call Me Miss Wallis: People really went there and tried it with Quvenzhané Wallis. First Seth, then The Onion, and topped off with that dumb reporter wanting to change her name to a fictitious character. In the end, it is all a reflection of them, not that adorable and talented young girl. Oh, by the way, that punk apology from The Onion’s CEO doesn’t amount to jack scratch in my book. For the quacks who are defending that garbage as satire, let’s hope you have the same stance when someone calls your child an offensive name. Just saying…
3. How many people thought or said, “Spike Lee is having a coronary right now!” when Quentin Tarantino won Best Screenplay for Django Unchained?
4. Dame Shirley Veronica Bassey was awesome. Say what you want. The 50-and-over-set STAYS having skills (she’s 76). “Goldfingahhhhh…”
Of course, there were honorable mentions like after party dresses looking way better than some red carpet choice. The list goes on and on.
I can only imagine what next year is going to be like.
