Do you plan to watch The Oscars this weekend? I do. I like to watch, mostly just to see what everybody is wearing. I am fully aware that it is a night of pomp and ceremony that feeds the most self-congratulatory industry known to mankind, but I still like to watch it. And I am relieved to high heaven that I do not have to compete for awards in the industry that I work in, and that I do not have to be dressed up, scrutinized, and both praised and adored, and/or mocked and ridiculed by the masses.

bananas. said...

those pictures are radical! love. them. all.

as for watching the oscars...that's a big fat negative. the show is BOR-ING! i can barely stand two seconds of it...but then james franco is hosting so maybe i'll have to.

Brandi said...

Those pictures are amazing ( I am a sucker for black and white candid shots). I have money on the Oscars so of course I am going to watch.

Karena said...

The Oscars for sure!!

I'm a full fledged awards showoholic!

Dancing Branflake said...

I love how some of these candids are so completely awkward. But gorgeous at the same time.

Pretty Little World said...

I absolutely plan to watch The Oscars - there's always a little bit of crazy that someone brings + the dresses are perfection.

I love the photos that you posted, mostly because they look glamorous, but also because everyone in them looks a wee bit tipsy.

Morgan said...

I'll probably watch the pre show to see who is wearing what but then turn it off. Gets boring fast. Although I am interested in the opening number with Anne and what's his face. :)

Mandy said...

I'm going to be tuning in this weekend, if for the fashion and the off-chance that Banksy makes an appearance. :)

Caroline said...

Fabulous!!! I can't wait to watch. It's a decadent train wreck ;)

Kimbirdy said...

wow, these photos are so candid! they're amazing. and i totally agree about how awful the whole hollywood culture is. i'm so grateful i fell in with the documentary filmmaker crowd. they're SO much nicer, supportive, and collaborative than the rest of the industry. whew! it's tough out there.

...love Maegan said...

wow, these are freaking AWESOME. I love the boobs at the table.

Claire Kiefer said...

Totally agree with all of that. I always watch, mostly for the gowns. Especially since I'm not a movie person and have seen like nothing that's been nominated. Except Black Swan. I did see that. Damn.

I'm with you on not competing for awards in our fields! Thank goodness. Hope your weekend is super fun and/or restful!

this free bird said...

omg i couldn't agree more. the last thing i want to do is have to be scrutinized for my fat roll or the wrong color dress or a hair color gone awry.

these black and whites are off the hook. warren beatty is such a prick. i love him.

xo,

Missy said...

Yeah, I am going to watch because I am afraid I will miss something! LOL

ellieand said...

a) these photos are so cool- something about black and white really takes away all the hype...it's like it's just regular people having a partay!

b) you're so right about the whole fame + scrutiny thing. I just couldn't handle it. ugh.xxx

Jessica said...

No, I used to watch but it's dawned on me in my old age what a stupid shallow popularity contest it is and nothing more.

They ignored my fav Inception so the Oscars I shall never watch again.

Marisa said...

What a glamorous looking life no? Unfortunately I have to work Sunday night so I'll miss out on all the fashion...oh yeah and awards :)

Haute World said...

Fab pics. These are the type you rarely see from award shoes. Probably not going to watch the Awards as the time difference makes it tricky, but I may catch a recap. The whole awards thing both fascinates and disgusts me at the same time.

The Seeker said...

Fabulous pictures, darling!!!
No, I am not going to watch the Oscars, because it's too late for me, I will be sleeping lol :))

Have a nice weekend
xoxo

Kathryn said...

It is more fun to skip it and listen to the the feedback afterwards.

Georgina Dollface said...

I love to watch the red carpet show, just to see what people are wearing. As for the awards themselves? Not so much. I prefer to just read the results the next day and see what catty things the entertainment columnists and reporters say about the outfits, speeches, etc.
Larry Fink's photographs are awesome. I'd love to see more of this type of photojournalism than the stuff that ET puts out. - G

mermaid gallery said...

good partying going on....I'll be watching ...and partying too....

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Love these candids. I'm definitely going to try to catch some webcast/twitter updates of the Oscars (not sure when/where they'd show them here :( )

I'm just catching up on blogs now post Mexico and hope you have the loveliest of weekends!

vint junky said...

No I'm not hon. I think I'm turning into the old lady who has to ask who everyone is! I'll probably catch up on later though, just for the gowns ;)

Stacy Conner said...

Love those photos! It's kind of like the "real" Oscars.

(obviously I'm catching up on blogs today, since I have been neglectful the past couple of weeks)

TK Kerouac said...
