Oscar Edition: Jared Leto Is Flawless

I didn’t think it was possible, but I finally watched an Academy Awards that did not upset me. As I watched last night, I was both amused by Ellen’s familiarity with the celebrity audience and moved by the most touching acceptance speeches. Actually, I was so happy with most of the awards last night that I  worried about not having anything to write about this morning. Fortunately for me, I can always spot the hot mess in any and everything.

Let’s get it!

1) The Academy for thinking that Disney’s Frozen deserved a Best Original Song Oscar.

I’m sure that I was not the only one rooting for Pharell’s “Happy” to take home the trophy.

Pharell’s performance of the hit song from Despicable Me 2 had everyone dancing out of their chairs. It’s just too bad that Academy voters thought Frozen‘s “Let It Go” was better….

Now, don’t get me wrong. I am a crazy Disney fan, having watched every Disney animated musical. However, Frozen was neither that great of a film (yeah, I said it) nor that great of a musical. As posted before, the songs in the movie were absolutely basic. I didn’t even like “Let It Go” until I heard a couple of covers on Youtube.

p.s. If you disagree with me on this one, I would encourage you to revisit the Disney classics of the 1990s and early 2000s. Then, let me know if you still think Frozen is the “best movie since The Lion King.”

2) John Travolta for butchering Idina Menzel‘s name.

When I listened to John Travolta introduce Idina Menzel, I thought that he got her name wrong. However, I didn’t realize just how wrong he got it until this morning. I don’t know what Travolta was thinking when he introduced the broadway star as “Adele Dazeem.”

Watch the clip here —> 

#FAIL

At least Idina gave a breathtaking performance after that one…

3) Jennifer Lawrence for tripping at the Academy Awards AGAIN!

Personally, I am not obsessed with J. Law like everyone else. With that said, I do understand her appeal. She’s a cute girl with a pretty great personality, who knows when to laugh at herself.

Let’s just hope that she can begin to master the art of wearing a gown one day….lol

4) The Academy for not having Leonardo DiCaprio‘s back.

After being nominated 4 times, it’s such a shame that Leo’s never won an Oscar.

I did not see Dallas Buyers Club, but I did watch Matthew McConaughey’s transformation and have no problem with him taking home a Best Actor trophy. I just want Leo to WIN!

Anyways…I’m pretty sure Leo will be nominated for 4 more Oscars over the next few years. Maybe he will win then…

Side note: Can we talk about Matthew McConaughey’s acceptance speech?????

He seriously lost me with this one, but at least he’s still cute. 🙂 lol

5) Jennifer Aniston for not having Brad Pitt‘s babies.

While watching the Oscars last night, all I could think about was how good Brad Pitt looked.

He looked good when he participated in Ellen’s Oscar selfie (top center behind big-head Bradley Cooper lol).

He looked good when he took a slice of pizza and when he gave Ellen money for the pizza.

He looked good when he clapped for Lupita’s win.

He looked good when he won his own Oscar for 12 Years A Slave.

He just looked good!

All I can say is that Angelina won that one. lol

BTWS, another guy that looked good last night was Jared Leto.

He is FLAWLESS!

Disney…Disney…Disney…

I hope everyone had a fantabulous weekend! I know I did, especially with all of the new releases at the box office. It is definitely the holiday season and the stars are coming out to play, which gives me even more hot messness to talk about before 2014. So, let’s get it!

1) Disney for approving the songs in Frozen.

After reading great reviews of the film, I was so excited to see Disney’s Frozen over the weekend. For the most part, Frozen did not disappoint. The characters were cute, funny, and lovable, while the plot was overall pretty entertaining. The only miss (and this was a BIG miss) was the music.

For the life of me, I do not know why Disney decided to skip on Alan Menkin for this project. Menkin was the genius behind such classics as The Little MermaidAladdin, and Hercules. Although Frozen tried to give us the same magical moments as these earlier pictures, the music just fell incredibly flat. I mean, the songs’ lyrics didn’t even rhyme! Not to mention, the vocabulary that was used was beyond basic. What happened to using words like “provincial” and “succession” ???

Honestly, all I can say is that I don’t remember a single song from the movie. Maybe next time Disney will actually get it right…

2) Kanye West for just being Kanye West.

Last week, Kanye did a series of interviews to try and explain his “creative genius” to the world. Unfortunately, Kanye allowed his temper to outshine his message and ended up getting into a heated argument on the radio show, Sway in the Morning.

Although I completely understand what Kanye is saying about people being “slaves,” I think that he needs to find a different approach to interviews.

3) X Factor for eliminating Josh Levi.

Simon Cowell’s X Factor is struggling in the ratings department and the show is about to lose one more viewer. Last Thursday, when I watched the live results show, I was in shock when two of the top talents left the competition – Josh Levi and Lillie McCloud. Even though I love Lillie, I never saw her in the final 4. Josh, however, was a different story. On the show, the kid had more talent in his left pinky than half the acts combined.

Check out Josh’s last performance here – Josh Levi – Treasure

This kid is a STAR and it’s just a matter of time before we see an album or television show from him. TEAM JOSH!

4) People Magazine for naming Adam Levine “The Sexiest Man Alive.”

Now, I know that a lot of people find Adam to be incredibly “sexy,” but is he reeeeeeeally the sexiest man alive??? I think not.

And in sadder news…

Today, Hollywood and fans of the Fast and Furious movies continue to mourn the loss of Paul Walker. The 40-year-old actor was in a fiery car crash on Saturday in Santa Clarita, CA. Investigators are still trying to figure out causes for the fatal accident.

In addition to The Fast and the Furious, the ageless actor was also known for She’s All That, Into the Blue, and Takers.
