Oscar Vibes

I know this post is coming to you a little late in the game, but I wanted to talk about it anyways. I watched the Oscars on Sunday with my mom and we both loved it. I live for award shows and started watching pre-red carpet stuff at 1:30! Can you tell I'm a wee bit obsessed?

I mean it's the best of so many worlds wrapped into one.


There were some amazing performances from Idina Menzel to U2 and freakin Bette Midler (nothing can beat her singing Wind Beneath My Wings).

Ellen was hilarious and charming and everything good. 

and of course MOVIES!
I'm always amazed by what movies can do. The way they can not only bring people together but provide an introduction for discussions. Many Oscar nominated movies and performances are about exploring the depth of human nature and those moments that have brought shame as well as those that have inspired triumph.

One last thing I love about award shows is the speeches. And man were there some good speeches on Sunday night. I laughed, I definitely cried (Jared Leto I'm looking at you), and I was reminded of all the wonderful people in my own life.

Do you ever think of who you'd thank during an award speech? Who do you think was best dressed of the night?
