I saw all nine Best Picture nominees. I’m extremely happy for Ben Affleck, George Clooney and Grant Heslov’s win with ARGO. I remember very well Ben Affleck and Matt Damon winning Best Original Screenplay for Good Will Hunting 15 years ago. I was an extra on the film School Ties several years prior to that. While I particularly loved Silver Linings Playbook I knew that ARGO would take home the Academy Award this year. Jennifer Lawrence is so talented. Looked lovely in Dior Couture. She’s superb as a young women with depression in Silver Linings Playbook. Excellent for Quentin Tarantino to win Best Original Screenplay for Django Unchained. I’m a HUGE QT fan and Django blew me away. So did Zero Dark Thirty. Oh and Christoph Waltz made me cry in Django Unchained. Ang Lee is of course immensely talented but I didn’t like Life of Pi‘s story. It’s a beautiful film.
Seth MacFarlane proved to be quite the disappointing host. Sexist, racist, homophobic.
on to fashion I liked [at Academy Awards and after parties]:
I’m not usually into this type of film but I’ll go see The Host because I adore Diane Kruger. Recently I saw Farewell My Queen and she made a fantastic Marie Antoinette.
“When I turned 30, I realized how ignorant I really was. I always thought I had a very accomplished life. I lived on my own and I was financially independent since 16; I speak different languages, I traveled the world. I thought, ‘Oh, I’m so smart.’ I realized through my personal travels how little I know about certain conflicts, because I was too vain or self-absorbed to ask the questions. That’s been the focus while I’m in my thirties – to become an accomplished woman, rather than some actress.”
The Host is in theaters on March 29
