Wow, I just saw the clip of Gary Busey mugging Jennifer Garner. Understandably, she clearly did not like him...I bet he went for a peck on the cheek (which...ick) and missed, but I loved how she recovered. She and Laura Linney were so cute together. I wish I could have heard the rest of that conversation.

I repeated last year's Oscar comment to my husband last night:

I want to be Helen Mirren when I grow up.

She manages to be the best looking woman on the red carpet, with the perfect amount of poise and confidence. Her clothes are lovely and her hair and makeup are fabulous. If that's what 62 looks like, sign me up....

Perhaps Katharine Heigl should take note - young and fresh and pretty as she is, Helen Mirren out-classed her every step of the way. Get some confidence...or at least *act* like you have some...

So there I was, up last night at 1 am, in a sleep deprived, sinus headache, stuffy nose, trying not to end up like Heath Ledger daze...(now I know why people are driven to taking handfuls of pills when they're sick...)
and I switched on Jimmy Kimmel.

Haven't laughed that hard in months. It was funny...then when he started parodying "We Are the World" it was hilarious...or so I thought...then came Josh Groban and I near peed my pjs!

He slaughtered Sarah Silverman.

Helen Mirren, did look lovely indeed and Javier, dear me. I think I've found a new love.

On the downside was Tilda. At this point I am willing to pay to get here a stylist.

Congrats to the Pitt-Jolie clan.

I was up last night and got into work late. John Stewart gets cool points when he brought the songwriter out to say her thank-you because they cut her off.

-Helen Mirren is the Queen of Hollywood

-I hate to say this for she's so annoying, but Katherine Heigel looked nice.

-Gary Busey..WTF?

Katherine Heigl did look nice but I was a little perplexed by her nervousness while presenting. Assuming she actually was nervous (and given that she is a relatively experienced actor, I question whether she was so nervous), couldn't she have just "acted" less nervous?

Katherine Heigl seemed quite poised -- if she hadn't done that whole nervousness speech, I would never have guessed.

I heart Tilda Swinton, regardless of what she's wearing. Nice to see natural, real women in Hollywood ... and on that note, I heart heart heart Helen Mirren. Love that she looks sexy and fabulous yet still age-appropriate.

Jon Stewart inviting the nominee who was cut off back to give her acceptance speech was very classy. Loved that.

I also loved his quip about "the baby goes to ... Angelina Jolie. She isn't here ... tough to get 17 babysitters on Oscar night." Heh heh.

Why are some of the posts gone?

Just once, I'd like to see some A-list female celeb show up at one of these awards events wearing a prosthetic "baby bump" under her dress. Make her look about 8 months along, design her dress accordingly, teach her to walk like a woman with child, and just watch the gossip fly! Then, after being the talk of the red carpet, she should remove the strap-on bump before going to the after parties. It would drive the media completely nuts!

Angie and Brad are having a boy, I bet. (low bump)

someone tell his plaid pants look awful..ugh.

More love for Helen Mirren: absolutely the most fab dress/hair/everything of last night.

Was totally nauseated by Katharine Heigl's "I'm so nervous" shtick. It's not about you, dearie. You're the least famous person up there and should fall on your knees with gratitude that you're invited to be on the same stage as people with real acting talent.

Love the Kimmel video. Maybe not fair to say he slaughtered Sarah though. It's easier to spoof the idea than have the idea. Awesome on all parts though. Totally loved the unexpected indulgence of my guilty pleasure Josh Groban "thing."

How far along does she look?

Posted by: Anonymous | February 25, 2008 5:25 PM | Report abuse

Far enough along that for the next umpteen months, we will be inundated with Jolie baby bump watch, what country will it be born in, how many more kids will be added to the brood, will it be twins, blah blah blah ad nauseum. Remember the colossal hoopla over Shiloh? Enough already!

Way to go for Jimmy Kimmel to kick it up into the stratosphere as a response to Sarah's video. Gotto love 'em both. The writers' strike sure brought out the creativity of the hosts, didn't it?
