Okay, I don't know about you guys, but I absolutely love watching the Academy Awards.

I don't know what it is that I love the most. Maybe it's seeing all those gorgeous dresses on the red carpet. Or watching the amazing opening. Or just all the glamour, humour, and wonderfulness in general. I don't know. But I do know that this year definitely did not disappoint.

Here is a few of my favourite dresses:

First, Jessica Chastain. She is just so elegant and her dress was gorgeous. Apparently her skin is so good that she doesn't even wear foundation to these things. If only I could say the same... sigh.
This colour is just SO GORGEOUS. And Jennifer Garner is adorable, oh my goodness. I was watching a red carpet interview with her and she was just so cute and her dress was so pretty and ugh so perfect!

Amy Adams' dress. HER DRESS. LOOK AT IT. So pretty. It reminded me a little of Emma Watson's at the DH pt 2 premier in London.

But seriously, basically everyone there looked UH-MAZING. Just a few of my personal favourites on a looong list of favourites!

I was a bit nervous about Seth Macfarlane hosting... probably because I've never really seen much of his stuff (that includes Family Guy... I am completely missing out, I've heard. Sorry guys) so I didn't really know what to expect. He came on and started basically just telling jokes, and I was like, oh geez. What is happening. Then BAM, Star Trek. And things became swiftly and beautifully awesome. Seth Macfarlane nailed it.

I was just swept into this fantastic array of stupidly talented stars all doing things like dancing way to well for someone who's famous enough already, singing like complete pros, and all in all making me feel way less skilled in everything I do.

And Daniel Radcliffe likes poutine. As a Canadian, my love for him increased by a substantial amount. IF possible. I mean, I loved him a ridiculous amount already.

This year, I hadn't seen a ton of the movies nominated... Out of all the nominees for best picture, I'd only seen Les Mis (and on that note, the Les Mis cast sang AND IT WAS SO BEAUTIFUL, I THINK I TEARED UP A BIT). And I was SO happy when Anne Hathaway won for best supporting actress, she did so amazingly well in Les Mis!

I have so much more to say but for now, I'll refrain - this is getting lengthy enough as it is! In conclusion, the oscars were incredible, as they usually are :) I always want to go to one of these awards shows but I feel like if I did, I'd vomit and/or cry and/or flail all over all these famous people that I want to make a good impression on that it would just be no good. So it's probably best if I stick to watching them in my living room.
