Your Brangelina thing is a little off. Baby number 4 would make 6 people in their family, not baby number 6

Anika Noni Rose: Dress was fab!
Cameron Diaz: Dress not great, but improvement over the Golden Globes dress
Penelope Cruz: Dress was a feather duster, I liked it.
Nicole Kidman: Bow was a loser.
Jennifer Hudson: Bolero Jacket was a loser.

Hey Nancy -- could you please complain to the Post on behalf of all of us who are unable (because of firewalls) to download the latest Flash player? Because the Post in its wisdom decided that only those with the new player should have access to PhotoWorks, I can't get a look at some of the outfits of folks who were ignored by E! and Joan Rivers on the red carpet.

Counting Off: Thanks for the Brangelina catch.
DMS: I will pass on your comments.

In Memoriam didn't include Yvonne DeCarlo. Bad form.

Before she was Lily Munster, she was Moses' (Heston's) wife in "The Ten Commandments," for heaven's sake.

Kirstun Dunst looks awful. Kind of like those pasty 50's women, especially the the mamie eisenhower hairdo.

2007 Academy Awards: Men triumph again!

It was sad to see that Peter O'Toole, once again, didn't win for Best Actor. Maybe he associated with too many Middle Eastern terrorists in Saudi Arabia back in the 1960s. Or, maybe he drank too much? Perhaps next year, O'Toole will be the first actor to win two Lifetime Achievement awards. That's the least we could do for him.

In the Academy's defense, Yvonne DeCarlo died Jan. 8, 2007, she'll be included in next years role call of the deceased.

But they DID miss Van Smith, the man that gave us the look of the great Divine & did a great deal of the costumes for many John Waters flicks.

I thought this years Oscar show was terribly boring. I thought it lacked glamor, warmth, and sparkle. As far as the fashions were concerned --

Jennifer Hudson - Looked better without the bolero jacket. Wished she had chosen a better color for her skin tone.

Beyonce - Has been reading too many of her press clippings. A beautiful woman who needs to stop dressing like a beauty pagent contestant.

Cameron Diaz - Try combing your hair! It didn't look casually tossled, it looked like you just woke up. The dress was meh, the color boring.

Meryl Streep - Just because you knew you weren't going to win, it didn't mean you shouldn't dress for the occasion. You're a classy lady, dress like it!

Jennifer Lopez -- You've overdone the Grecian style.

Nicole Kidman -- What was that growth coming out of your neck?

Cate Blanchett -- Now there was someone who understands glamor!

I loved Jodie Foster's dress. The blue brought out her eyes (what could be seen of them) and the cut was flattering, but that hair! The bangs in her eyes moved every time she blinked. It made me want to reach through the TV and fix it.

Jennifer Hudson--please take your hands out of your pockets!!

Meryl Streep: lighten up baby! It was a joke. Geeze did you bring Russell Crowe as your date?

Cameron Diaz: She looks so skinny that she is fading away into nothing but cheekbones. A rag, a bone and a hank of hair. C, it is a saying not an aspiration.

I think Meryl was joking...

Anyway, I thought Diane Keaton looked lovely.

Where I live, the first Red Carpet program we got on our TV was in Spanish. All the big names came over to be interviewed. Of course some like Penny Cruz and JLo can speak Spanish, but many more (like H. Mirren ) gave it their college Spanish try, which was sweet.
I thought the Spanish-language hosts were charming and what a great break from Ryan Seacrest and Joan Rivers, even if I couldn't understand anything!

Cate Blanchett
Djimon Hounsou
Anika Noni Rose
Reese Witherspoon
Portia de Rossi
Gwyneth Paltrow- weird but I like it
Penelope Cruz
Helen Mirren
Leo DiCaprio

Not so much:
Love Jennifer's choices most of the time but not last night. Her performance dress was much better.

Jada she didn't even try.

Beyonce's dress looked like a longer version of one of her performance pieces.

Nicole Kidman and Naomi Watts, those two didn't even try, what's with the bow and the yellow wasn't right for Naomi's skintone.

What the bloody hell is Kirsten Dunst wearing? That thing is ghastly.

- Jennifer Hudson - proof that confidence is always the best accessory
- Helen Mirren, Reese Witherspoon, and Kate Winslet, as always
- Diane Keaton - uncharacteristically low neckline, always classy, love it!
- Penelope Cruz, simple and spectacular
- Beyonce
- Naomi Watts - loved the color and the bow, and what a great way to look fab pregnant
- Rachel Weisz
- Emily Blunt
- Nicole Kidman - so happy to finally see her in a bright color; the blushes and champagnes and ivories of award shows past do nothing for her
- Maggie Gyllenhaal
- Forest Whitaker's wife and Mark Wahlberg's girlfriend -- loved their dresses

- What's Gwyneth hiding under that sheet of hair? She ALWAYS has her hair covering her torso/boobs/midsection. She's so beautiful, shouldn't be afraid to wear her hair UP once in awhile (though not the cueball look of the year when she won the Oscar, please).

Thumbs down:
- I'm sorry but Jada Pinkett Smith looks like a drag queen to me. There's something oddly masculine about her no matter what she wears.
- Jennifer Lopez - good god, the woman more matronly and dowdy every time I see her. The hair! Yikes. And why does her husband look like death warmed over -- all the time? Corpselike pallor, dark circles under sunken eyes ...
- Cameron Diaz, PLEASE brush your hair.
- Borat guy, PLEASE find a razor, pronto.

Those faux divas screaming at each other made me wish for a rapper on that stage.

Catherine: Is how we do it in Kazakhstan!

You go there, my sister Natalya, she will teach you everything she know about how to be success like her.

She 4th best in Kazakhstan at what she do; you can be too! Please come.

I forgot to include Leonardo DiCaprio to my list. The man was OMG smokin' hot.

Posted by: Lisa | February 26, 2007 2:34 PM | Report abuse

Clive Owen was looking yummy-eat-straight-out-the-box! i don't know if it was because he looked slimer or the suit he was wearing, cause i'm usually not attracted to him... but... WHOO!

two words:

George Clooney

Too bad Liz isn't here. We could give her a hard time about Diane Keaton. I think she looked GREAT! I loved her flirting with Jack Nicholson.

Congrats to Martin S. About freaking time!!

Posted by: Anonymous | February 26, 2007 7:11 PM | Report abuse

Well, let's see....they included Sophia Loren's untalented husband who died a few days after Yvonne DeCarlo. DeCarlo was a star and a republican - enough said for her omission on the Democratic run awards :)......
