If there is any TV event that I never ever miss it’s the Academy Awards! It has been this way ever since I was a little. My favourite cousin ( Alexis) and I would actually make a whole event out of it as we would either watch in my house have loads of popcorn and with our list of predicted winners on hand we would marvel at the glamorous celebrities, handsome actors and really enjoy a fantastic show. Alexis now lives in New York and he is a film reviewer and is living his dream of being a legitimate film journalist. In many ways his dream came true and I am extremely proud of his accomplishments.
This year is the 85th Academy awards and it was truly a show to be missed. I woke up at 6am and began to enjoy the red carpet proceedings and began to enjoy the biggest fashion show in the world. Sadly I could not get of work and had to miss the Live show which made me a bit sad but I had a very important shoot that I could not miss.
The great thing was that I was able to catch a bit of the prime time show and was able to watch more than half of the show. Seeing Dame Shirley Bassey gave me the chills as she is such a performer! This years show was absolutely great to watch specially the tribute to James Bond and the Les Miserables number. Being a fan of Barbra Streisand I was so moved when she sang for her dear departed friend Marvin Hamlisch. Overall The show really fabulous and the red carpet action had more than it’s share of winners! The big trend this year was WHITE! There was several gowns in white! Well! Enough chatter and find out my peanut gallery thoughts for this years OSCARS red carpet show! Enjoy!
