The stars usually save their best threads for the biggest awards show of the year—The Academy Awards. See which women stood out in the Oscar 2010 red carpet.
It’s great to see actresses stay away from solid-hued dresses for change. Maggie Gyllenhaal, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actress, wore a brushstroke-print Dries Van Noten gown accessorized with vintage Fred Leighton jewels.
Presenter Kristen Stewart surprised red carpet critics with her feminine custom-made dress. This Monique Lhuillier navy trumpet gown was a refreshing change from Kristen’s usually boyish/rocker outfits.
Oh, Sandy! The 45-year-old actress was honored and dishonored in the same weekend. She took home the Worst Actress trophy for her movie All About Steve at the Golden Raspberry Awards on Saturday, March 6th, a day before bagging the Best Actress award at the Oscars for her role in The Blind Side.
At the Razzies, Sandra was given a standing ovation when she picked up her award; she was the first Worst Actress recipient to actually attend the show since Halle Berry was shamed for her role in 2005’s Catwoman.
The good-humored actress was armed with a box of All About Steve DVDs, as she told the crowd they all need to watch her performance again because she’s not convinced she deserves the dishonor. She got another trophy that night for Worst Screen Couple with her co-star Bradley Cooper.
The Oscars was a different story. In her Best Actress acceptance speech, she paid tribute to the other nominees—Gabby Sidibe, Carey Mulligan, Helen Mirren, and Meryl Streep. She also gave an emotional tribute to her late mother, Helga Bullock. View the full transcript of her speech here.
Congratulations, Sandy—for both awards!
While Elton John was busy making money off of stars, George Clooney was not to be seen at The Oscars. Where was he? He had an important meeting with the President regarding his trip to Darfur! Clooney went to Darfur as a UN Messenger of Peace.
Despite the recession, Elton John was able to gather a huge crowd of stars to his Oscar Party this year. The goal was to raise money for charity benefiting AIDS and did he reach that goal! With $3 million made, his charity will be very happy indeed.
I didn’t know that Hugh Jackman could sing! And he could dance too. I don’t know much about his opening number as host of the Oscars but the theme of his opening speech was “downsizing.” He said that there was no budget for the opening number so he did one anyway. Pretty different but pretty cool, I think. He really is a hunk.
