Academy Awards Highlights

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

Actress Jessica Chastain wowed viewers this year at the 84th annual Academy awards in a gorgeous Alexander McQueen gown! “The Help” nominee paired her gorgeous black and gold embroidered gown with $2 million worth of Harry Winston diamonds. Chastain said of the dress: 

“It felt larger than life — and this is a larger-than-life moment. I always wanted to be an actor. Most little girls dream of their wedding dresses; I grew up dreaming of my Oscar dress.”

She definitely won best dressed for the night! Her hair and makeup were also perfect for the occasion. Her new lightened locks were kept classy and wavy and her makeup was soft and flawless. We’re not surprised that Twitter users (follow us @askelf) all voted Jessica as best dressed.

Our second (and sadly, last) highlight of the night was Sacha Baron Cohen. People need to loosen up and get used to his presence because he is just hysterical. Dressed up as the 'Dictator', Cohen brought in an urn with what he says was filled with Kim Jon Il’s ashes and then spilled them on Ryan Seacrest. His antics are amazing and so outrageous that it's just hard NOT to laugh! And Ryan gets some points for being such a good sport.

What did you guys think of the Academy Awards this year? Was Billy Crystal funny enough? Was it a snooze fest?

-Patti, Contributing Elfette

This is very pretty but for me, It is a bit over the top... But I guess thats what the red carpet is for, Right?

Over all I thought that this year's Academy Awards was pretty tamed. The only thing that I found most exciting was seeing Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie walk the red carpet. Angelina's dress and makeup were to die for!
