    Watching the E! network arrivals show! Love the clothes! I think this will be lots of fun!

    6:00

    I’m with Guiliana R. watching the E! red carpet begin. 

    So, here’s what I’m hoping for, this evening.  Viola Davis over Meryl.  This despite my really disliking “The Help.”  A relic of a movie.  But Viola gives a brilliant performance.  Much better than Meryl’s latest adventure in funny accents.

    I’d like to see Janet McTeer take Best Supporting for “Albert Nobbs.”  Oh, and I wouldn’t cry id Glenn Close surprised everybody by finally getting an Oscar.  Her perf is fantastic.

    I’d swoon to seen Gary Oldman take Best Actor.  This is very first nomination after so many great portrayals.

    Under no circumstances MIchelle Williams.  I want to vomit just thinking about “mY Week W Marilyn.”

    OH–here is Kelly Osborne still with that weird grayish hair.  Don’t get it.

    Watchng Rose Burke from “Bridesmailds”   Great dress!

    6:09 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Deirdre Cerasa

      Of all the colors Kelly’s hair has been, I like this one the least. I just don’t get it.

    Already, the typos are beginning.  I’ve had so much trouble staying logged on, I’m rushing. 

    6:11 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Mr. Wow

    Another girl from “Bridesmaids”  In a rust Armani.  Nice.  Simple.  Love Armani.

    Bernice Bejo (sp?) from “The Artist.”  In light mint.  “Like your eyes,” she just told Ryan Seacrest. Like his eyes?  

    6:15 pm | February 26, 2012
    • I see you are holding back, Mr. Wow. Don’t be shy.

      6:17 pm | February 26, 2012
      • Mr. Wow

        Not shy. I’ve just been knocked off twice and lost many comments.  I see this will a trial.

        6:23 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Mr. Wow

    Melissa McCarthy.  I don’t want to be cruel.  Please somebody do it for mr?

    6:24 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Lori

      Ok I will be cruel for you Mr. Wow she looks like a house and should never wear a belt so high on her waist

      6:29 pm | February 26, 2012
      • Mr. Wow

        Dear Lori…

        Thank you. 

        6:31 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Mr. Wow

    Kelly Osbourne raving over Melissa.  Won’t find any cruelty there.

    Jessica Chastain.  Like the dress.  Hate the hair.   Well, hate is too strong.  But she does need more bling on the ears.

    6:27 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Mr. Wow

    Michelle Williams just arrived.  In red. This girl should not wear red.  Or play Marilyn Monroe.  Or be nominated for that travesty. 

    Otherwise, I accept her being there.

    6:30 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Jon T

      Am I alone in liking Kelly Osbourne’s gray/purple hair? It caught me off guard at first, but the more I see it the more it grows on me. It’s different and I kinda think she pulls it off.

      6:34 pm | February 26, 2012
      • Mr. Wow

        Dear Jon…

        You are alone.   But that’s cool.  I’m alone in thinking Meryl doesn’t deserve the Oscar.

        6:39 pm | February 26, 2012
        • Tee Zee

          You are alone, the color is just not flattering on Kelly!

          6:41 pm | February 26, 2012
        • Lori

          Mr Wow you are not alone in thinking Meryl doesn’t deserve an oscar this year. You seen one accent you have seen them all!

          6:45 pm | February 26, 2012
        • Jon T

          :-) On Meryl, we agree. She’s brilliant and all, but not everything she does warrants a nomination.

          7:26 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Deirdre Cerasa

    Is Stacey Keibler just a little obvious?? She looks like and “Oscar” in her gold dress!

    6:40 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Deirdre Cerasa

      She is George Clooney’s current girlfriend.

      6:41 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Deirdre Cerasa

    I think Guiliana looks gorgeous! And here is Viola Davis without her wig!! Go Viola! You are wonderful.

    6:43 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Tee Zee

    Viola Davis is stunning in green and her natural hair. Not sure about the earrings.

    6:43 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Deirdre Cerasa

      Tee Zee, I love the earrings! You are right, she is stunning!

      6:50 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Mr. Wow

    Viola Davis…Loving the natural do. 

    6:44 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Mr. Wow

    Virginia Madsen!  Glad she’s still on the Oscar guest list.  That career should have been hotter.

    Sean Combs being brushed down. 

    6:47 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Deirdre Cerasa

    P.Diddy, getting fluffed and buffed as he gets out of the car! Why??

    6:47 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Am I crazy but aren’t all the women sort of…. fat?

    6:47 pm | February 26, 2012
    • wlaccma

      No, the cameras add 20 lbs.

      6:49 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Mr. Wow

      Uhhhh…no.  Who?   I mean aside from–well, I promised not to be cruel to her.

      6:51 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Deirdre Cerasa

      That is what HiDefinition Television does!

      6:51 pm | February 26, 2012
      • Deirdre Cerasa

        Also why most of these women haven’t eaten so much as a pea in weeks!

        6:53 pm | February 26, 2012
  • wlaccma

    Just saw the Artist this afternoon and I do not want it to win best Picture. I liked it but I LOVED Hugo.

    6:48 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Mr. Wow

    Love Viola from head to knees.  Then the dress goes off the reservation a bit.  But the color is fantastic!

    6:51 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Lori

      Octavia isnt as heavy as Melissa but she does heavy well in this dress

      6:59 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Daniel Sugar

    Tony Bennett. Dapper.

    6:52 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Mr. Wow

    Michelle Williams…she “filled in” the role of Marilyn?!  Has she seen the movie?

    Her dress is  nice for a teen prom.

    Rooney Mara, hideous in white.

    6:55 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Mr. Wow

    Come on Joni…you think Rooney looks fat? 

    6:56 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Lori

      Rooney looks anorexic and her dress is horrible

      7:00 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Deirdre Cerasa

    Rooney Mara? I don’t know, at least it’s not black.

    6:56 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Deirdre Cerasa

    I think Michelle Williams look is sad.

    6:57 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Tee Zee

    Rooney looks washed out…needs a better stylist?

    6:58 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Deirdre Cerasa

      She always looks washed out. I think that is her “look”.

      6:59 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Deirdre Cerasa

    Octavia Spencer knows how to dress her body type! She looks lovely!

    6:59 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Mr. Wow

    Considering all that Octavia has already won, I think she has a speech pretty much down.  Sweet lady.

    But I am still rooting for Ms.McTeer.

    Johan Hill is re-gaining.

    7:03 pm | February 26, 2012
  • wlaccma

    Why do fat people always wear strapless. Don’t they see how bad they look from the back with fat hanging over the dress? Ugh. Every wedding I attend has a bride stuffed into a strapless gown that looks horrible from the back.

    7:04 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Mr. Wow

      Well, if you can’t hide it, paint it red. 

      7:10 pm | February 26, 2012
  • wlaccma

    I liked this show better when everyone did not have stylists and some people had on crazy outfits. Always made it interesting.

    7:06 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Tee Zee

      Someone always dresses to get attention so there’s always hope!

      7:17 pm | February 26, 2012
  • wlaccma

    Yes, Jonah has gained a lot of weight back. I feel sorry for him.

    7:07 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Tee Zee

    Jonah was fantastic in Moneyball…

    Octavia is elegant and hitting just the right tone.

    7:07 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Mr. Wow

    Jean Dujardin…I’ve met him.  Much hotter in person.  And very nice.  I love Frenchmen. 

    7:07 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Tee Zee

      So jealous… I hope to see a lot more of him…on the screen.

      7:09 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Tee Zee

    Love Maya in purple…hair to one side…lovely

    7:08 pm | February 26, 2012
  • wlaccma

    I have relatives who are nuns. NO ONE wears the old nun costume any more. That looks ridiculous. I know she was a former star who lives in a convent but REALLY? Nuns have not dressed like that for years.

    7:09 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Deirdre Cerasa

      She is actually a cloistered nun. Part of their vows is to always wear a habit. They are not “out in the world” very often. I missed her entrance. I do know that her order is trying to save their convent from falling down or being condemned.

      7:19 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Mr. Wow

    Rick Santorum approves.

    7:11 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Daniel Sugar

    Love Kate Mara’s dress.

    7:15 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Mr. Wow

      Except for that drapy thing over one breast.   And bigger earrings.  I’m just a dangling earring kinda guy.

      7:19 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Mr. Wow

    ABC Red Carpet underway…

    Mila Jovavich with Tim Gunn.   I guess one-shoulder is a big trend  tonight.   And Mila looks good, too.

    7:17 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Tee Zee

      Well she certainly knows how to promote herself!

      7:19 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Mr. Wow

    OMG…Prince Albert.  Or is it Eton John?

    7:20 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Deirdre Cerasa

    Sasha Baron Cohen is a moron.

    7:20 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Deirdre Cerasa

    Nina says Rooney Mara is Audrey Hepburn gone punk??

    7:24 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Mr. Wow

      Nina is a fool.

      7:29 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Mr. Wow

    That bagel on Jennifer Lopez’s head has made me so hungry!

    7:26 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Mr. Wow

    Emma Stone.  Why?  Everything is so wrong. 

    7:29 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Deirdre Cerasa

      That’s for sure! She is so lovely and the dress is not!

      7:53 pm | February 26, 2012
  • wlaccma

    I think Sasha Cohen is hilarious. He was so great in Hugo.

    7:46 pm | February 26, 2012
  • TO ALL:

    Technical Difficulties… Mr. WOW is unable to log on.
    Please forgive us (if it gets fixed, he’ll be back).
    And continue on… Please!

    7:52 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Deirdre Cerasa

      Thanks Joni! So disappointed; Mr. WoW is so great. Hope the glitch is fixed.

      7:54 pm | February 26, 2012

      I’m back—I think!

    Nick Nolte … I guess we do eventually pay for all our sins

    7:55 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Deirdre Cerasa

      Yes, Nick Nolte. I prefer to remember him, when.

      8:01 pm | February 26, 2012

    Penelope Cruz with Tim Gunn on ABC. She looks lovely. Not too sure about her hair.

    7:56 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Deirdre Cerasa

    Tina Fey looks wonderful in the gorgeous Carolina Herrera dress! Stunning. Gweneth Paltrow, WOW!

    8:00 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Tee Zee

    Cameron Diaz… great gown…great hair

    8:01 pm | February 26, 2012
  • wlaccma

    I don’t like Glenn Close’ outfit. Take off the jacket. I have not seen Meryl Streep yet but I have never seen her in a dress that did not look like she had raided Grandma’s closet.

    8:06 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Tee Zee

      So true, I suspect she dresses for comfort rather than glamour!

      8:08 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Mr. Wow

      No, no, no…we don’t want her to take the jacket off.

      8:10 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Mr. Wow

    Gwyneth Paltrow…now that looks pretty great!   Even I, Mr. More Bling, think her bare ears and neck are divine.    She’s come a long way from the atrocity she wore when she won the Oscar.

    Glenn Close–conditioner, darling.

    8:08 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Mr. Wow

    Penelope Cruz…exquisite.

    Sandra Bullock.  That is one tight face.

    8:14 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Deirdre Cerasa

      The fit of Sandra Bullock’s dress is odd!

      8:17 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Mr. Wow

    Angelina Jolie’s knee.   Please put it back under the dress, honey.

    8:16 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Not happy with the way Robin Roberts’ beautiful white sequined dress tucks in behind her (if you know what I mean).
    SO glad we are soon to go inside.

    8:21 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Mr. Wow

      Joni…we know what you mean.  You are such a lady.  Let’s send Robin a discreet note tomorrow. 

      Dear Robin–about your ass…

      Amen, ABC’s coverage is just so awkward. Lets get on with the show!

    Natalie Portman….red strapless.  Excellent bling.  She’s teeny!

    8:21 pm | February 26, 2012
  • wlaccma

    I am really enjoying this, it beats having a bunch of people over to watch. You have to feed them. lol

    8:22 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Mr. Wow

      Please, no food talk.  I’m still thinking about Miss Lopez and her bagel-head.

    Natalie Portman…red done wright

    8:29 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Mr. Wow

    Ooooohh.  Just saw an ad for Ashley Judd’s new series.  Looks like typical (and highly enjoyable) Ashley antics–angry, take no shit woman on a mission. 

    She’s the best of  the Judds.

    Rooting for Billy Crystal! Would have loved to see Eddie Murphy!

    Meryl in gold?

    8:37 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Mr. Wow

      THere was a shot of her in the audience–dress looked gold and glittery to me.

      8:43 pm | February 26, 2012
      • Deirdre Cerasa

        As they cut to commercial; there was Meryl walking in a beautiful gold dress.

    Classic Billy!

    Tom Hanks…liking the scruff.   Tho it hardly makes up for his disgraceful win for “Forrest Gump.”

  • Mr. Wow

    Wow!  I’m growing my hair out!  Loved that guy’s white mane.

    Mr. Wow,

    Billy Crystal just did my joke: there’s nothing more enjoyable than watching a group of white millionaires give each other awards. (I said that to you a short while ago.)

    • Mr. Wow

      I know!   You clever lobotomist. 

      8:53 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Mr. Wow

    See what I get? –the first damn film tribute clip is from “Forrest Gump.”

    • Deirdre Cerasa

      They must have heard you!

      9:16 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Mr. Wow

    Oh, dear.  Miss Streisand.

    9:02 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Deirdre Cerasa

      At least she isn’t pulled so tight that her eyes are neatly placed, one on each side of her head!

    • Hilary Black

      I know. Scary!!!

      9:38 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Mr. Wow

    In the past, they  usually give the Best Supporting Actress first.  Get the blood going right away.  Maybe this approach is better?  Boring first half hour?

    Okay, here we go.  Wonderful suit on Mr. Bale.

    9:10 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Mr. Wow

    Octavia.  Very sweet.  Still don’t care for “The Help.”   Rooting for Viola, though Meryl’s big gold  dress-up is touching.  At least if Meryl wins, it might nix any future nominations.  And Miss Davis can possibly go on to be brilliant in a contemporary role.  

    9:23 pm | February 26, 2012
  • Mr. Wow

    Bradley Cooper….Hot,  but a little fat-faced right now. 

    9:26 pm | February 26, 2012

      And what’s with the mustache?

  • Mr. Wow

    Paltrow and Downey…that was amusing.   What about that giant diamond cuff she’s wearing!

    Speaking of which, I hope they have something special planned for Miss Taylor.

  • Tee Zee

    Emma Stone…ok…kinda cute!

    9:55 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Mr. Wow

      That was a good bit.  Wish the dress was more attractive. Although its dorky quality worked for what she was doing.

    Nice for Plummer.   I had a big crush on him in “The Sound of Music.”  He was so…severe.

        Nick Nolte in Prince of Tides… always moves me.

        10:26 pm | February 26, 2012
        • Mr. Wow

          If only Barbra had stuck to directing and not co-starring in that one. 

          10:29 pm | February 26, 2012
          • Tee Zee

            Agreed !

            10:35 pm | February 26, 2012
        • Deirdre Cerasa

          “Lowenstein, Lowenstein, I say it like a prayer”. Oh yes the Prince of Tides, he was magic.
          Sorry Mr. WoW, I think Barbra was perfect in Prince of Tides. It was a great cast all the way through.

          10:33 pm | February 26, 2012

    Zach looks almost cute. 

    10:17 pm | February 26, 2012

    Angelina…please, please, please…even a little fruit or oatmeal.  Just get something in your stomach.

    We can negotiate a cheeseburger later, when you can lift your arms without strain.

    Woody Allen finally won… not that he cares. I did enjoy Midnight in Paris.

    10:33 pm | February 26, 2012

      I really enjoyed Midnight in Paris. I have watched it 3 times, so far.

        Agreed, it captivated me in a way I didn’t expect…charming.

          Exactly! I think Owen Wilson was terrific and that was a pleasant surprise!

      Sorry, I forgot he won for Annie Hall…

    I think I’d prefer three hours of Ellen DeGeneres commercials.   Not that this is so  bad.

      I think the real problem is Hollywood is just not making many films and most are the action and remakes that make money overseas. Just not a lot to get excited about.

      It does seem a bit sedate!

        Where are the drunks, sluts and political loons when you need them?

          Way too much, best behavior

          Way too much “best behavior”!

    Michael Douglas…wow, quite the recovery!   I recall going to the preem of “Wall Street 2″ and everybody assuming he’d be dead within a few months.  Needless to say, it was one of the most packed and frantic and ghoulish events ever.

    Note to Tee Zee: Woody Allen’s already won 5 times.

    And you know…that wink is the worst part of “Cleopatra.” 

    Oh, well.   They gave her the finale.

    Liking all the actors talking about making movies.

    11:12 pm | February 26, 2012
    • Mr. Wow

      Yes, I’d rather see three hours of that, too.

        I watch “The Actor’s Studio” to listen to actors talking about making movies.

    Did not really see that coming– Jean Dujardin.   Charming performance.  Period.

      I don’t think many saw that coming.  George didn’t look too happy. Angelina didn’t look too happy. I suspect Brad didn’t care. He has fun. What else is there?

    I guess the gold dress worked its charm.

    Okay, Meryl…you got it.   God bless.  Get drunk.

    Academy, you’re on notice.  No more nominations for this woman.

      I suspect you will see her again. And again. And again. And why not?

    You are still my Top Gun, honey.   We never have to talk about religion.  Or anything.

    I adored Colin Firth in Mamma Mia — so delicious! Also in The King’s Speech.  I think he’d make a good Bond.
    My niece texted to ask “Who is Billy Crystal?”  I’ll be laughing about that all night.  Reminds me of how my Mom used to say how much she loved Arthur Godfrey and I’d go “Arthur who?”  The march of time is relentless.  At least I know who Bieber is.

    Bravo to Meryl.  Her performance was spot on even if the script was a bit much.  I have great admiration for the real Mrs. Thatcher.

    Thanks, Mr. Wow.

    Once again, that was fun.

    OK “The Artist” won all the big ones but not the sweep that was predicted. Not a bad way to spend an evening. Thanks to all of you!

    It’s over.  Not bad.  Except for my concerns for Miss Jolie.  Those arms and that knee will haunt me for some time. 

    Thanks to you stayed with me through my technical problems and thanks to Joni, Sylvia, Hilary and Emily, who talked me down from my high anxiety when things weren”t working.   And for fixing it, too!

    Love,
    Mr. W.

      I actually watched most of it.  I think someone should explain to Angelina that bony knees don’t go well with slit gowns. Or at least suggest she keep the leg in instead of out.

      I never really watch so maybe they do this each year now but I remember when the Governors Awards, although I remember when it was just the Jean Hersholtz award, were presented during the Oscar presentation.  So Oprah was allowed to stand and be acknowledged the way Lauren Bacall was. Not that I like Oprah. But I thought it was insulting. the way I thought it was insulting with Lauren Bacall.  And I would have preferred they honored Doris Day. I suspect they never will. Apart from a little blip during the Memorium.  And I also would have preferred Martha screeching over Cleo winking.  But, well, who are we to say?

      I missed your blogging. I forgot.  A friend who used to cover it live was blogging. Via Facebook. So I didn’t get up during commercials. And then went to bed. Hopefully in a day or two all the “news feed” will be gone.

    Mr. Wow,

    I’ve tried numerous times to read the article – it isn’t here – what comes up are the comments and a picture of Oscar – nothing else. What am I doing wrong?
