This is one of our most anticipated nights of the year :) I don't have to tell most of you how much Husband and I enjoy movies. For some reason, deviled eggs are a traditional snack at every Oscar viewing (and General Conference as well...) so we snacked on those, grilled chicken salads, and homemade brownies. I'm currently on the hunt for the perfect brownie recipe. I'm three recipes in, with no standouts. Feel free to email me any and all amazing brownie recipes, as my search continues.
Billy Crystal hosted for the ninth time and was hilarious as usual. I loved his opening song. Cirque du Soleil performed, the 'In Memoriam' tribute was touching, the Bridesmaids cast and Will Ferrell and Zach Galafinakis were funny, and Angelina struck an awkward pose in an attempt to be...sexy?
Meryl won and gave a very sweet speech, as did Octavia Spencer. The Artist deservingly took Best Picture, and my best friend Jean Dujardin won best actor. I was giddy. If you don't love Jean as much as I do, watch his interview with Jay Leno here and here
Also, I held on to my title from last year as "Person in our house who knows more about who will win Academy Awards" as I beat Jack's ballot predictions by one point. Oh, SNAP :) Long live the conquering hero.
I will be posting my Top Ten movies of 2011 list very soon. I only have two more to watch.
