Did you enjoy the show? I did. I thought Chris Rock did a stellar job at the task he was given. The valid point for more diversity was made. We will see how things go for next year and beyond.
Loved Harold Wheeler and the live orchestra. Beautiful dresses. Charlize Theron’s plunging red gown with the gorgeous, long pendant. Alicia Vikander’s hi-lo yellow gown. Priyanka Chopra’s stunning white burn-out gown. Naomi Watts and Reese Witherspoon were regal in their purple gowns. But it’s VERY late and I want to go to bed. Alas, I have no after parties to attend. Maybe next year.
Without further ado, and no scrolling credits at the bottom of the screen, here are the winners!

I want to thank all those who make movies as I dearly love to go to see them, I want to thank my husband, Jack, who gallantly and chivalrously escorts me to see them, and to all of my family and friends who kindly listen to me babble on and on about them. I have no intention of ever stopping.
Hooray for Hollywood!
