each dish represented one of the 10 Best picture Nominees! Check it out. This may be my favorite part of the entire night... (well.... maybe besides Christian Bale's win! But we'll get to that). BEHOLD:
|Look at all the lovely goodies! Firstly, some Oscar shaped cookies. MMMMM.|
|Irish grilled cheese (complete with ACTUAL imported Dublin cheese) for The Fighter!|
|Black Swan cupcakes. Complete with a bloody red center!|
|True Grit balls (fried grits!), and tater tots to represent Mr. Potato Head from toy Story 3.|
|FAVORITE. Trifles with LAYERS to represent INCEPTION. OH MAH GUH!|
|Red wine for The Kids Are All Right.|
|These are the cutest. The outside are Winter's Bone-less chicken nuggets, and the pigs in a blanket are supposed to be for 127 Hours. It's an arm stuck between a two rocks.|
|English Toffee for The King's Speech.|
|Here's what my reaction face would be if I won an Oscar|
|Here is Stacy's best try at the Helena Bonham Carter|
|And then.... it was TIME FOR THE SHOW!!!!|
As for the awards, I think last night was one of my favorite Oscars ever. I had seen all 10 best picture nominees and I liked so many of them that I didn't really care which one won Best Picture. Of course, there were two awards that I REALLY needed to go my way, or they had the potential to really ruin my night. One was Best Actress, which I needed to go to Natalie Portman. Thankfully it did, and that sweet little vessel of life got her first Oscar! She accepted the award in her deep purple Rodarte dress and just glowed with emotion. Such a sweet moment.
Here's Christian's speech:
