So, this is where I relax: my bed. I tend to sit on my bed when listening to music, reading on my kindle, or doing things on my laptop. I feel relaxed and calm in this location. Plus, my stuffed animals keep me company! Maybe it’s more relaxing because I don’t have a TV in my room, either. I can just listen to music and type away. And then I go to sleep. Good times.
So, who watched the Oscars last night? I thought it was a good show overall and I enjoy watching it every year. Here are the worst and best moments of the Oscars, in my opinion!
1. Sean Penn presenting. He said: “Who gave this son of a bitch his green card?” I think he was hoping it would be a joke, but it wasn’t funny.
2. Matthew McConnaughey taking forever to announce the best actress Oscar (Julianne Moore won). I wonder if he did it on purpose.
3. Neil Patrick Harris’ Oscar predictions in the briefcase bit. It got old after a while.
4. John Travolta touching Idina Menzel’s face. I feel bad for her.
5. Some speeches were way too long, which is why the whole show went over 30 minutes.
1. Neil Patrick Harris’ opening song. I thought he was good host overall, too!
2. J.K. Simmon’s best supporting actor speech. Here’s part of it: “Call your mom, call your dad. If you’re lucky enough to have a parent or two alive on this planet, call them. Don’t text; don’t email. Call them on the phone and tell them you love them. And thank them and listen to them for as long as they want to talk to you.” Click here for the whole speech.
3. Lady Gaga singing a medley of Sound of Music songs for its 50th anniversary. It was AMAZING and brought me to tears. Here’s a video I found of it:
4. Graham Moore’s (Imitation Game screenwriter) speech. Here is most of it: “When I was 16 years old, I tried to kill myself because I felt weird. And I felt different. And I felt like I did not belong. And now I’m standing here, and so I would like for this moment to be for that kid out there who feels like she’s weird or she’s different or she doesn’t fit in anywhere. Yes, you do. I promise you do. You do. Stay weird; stay different. And then when it’s your turn, and you are standing on this stage, please pass the same message.” Click here for his whole speech.
5. Eddie Redmayne winning best actor for The Theory of Everything. I like him!
So, those are my thoughts on the Oscars. And now I want to watch Sound of Music. Maybe I will sometime this week!
