The 81st Academy Awards red carpet- a brief look.
The Slumdog cast all arrived on the red carpet. From the young Latika to ‘old’, Freida Pinto looked gorgeous. This is such a big night for her and Dev Patel. They must be so overwhelmed , but I hope they embrace this all. Great movie, well done to Danny Boyle (director) and Vikas Swarup (author of Q&A) for bringing this story to life.
Heidi Klum is absolutely beautiful. She always makes such a statement on the red carpet and often in red, nice Heidi. You can see she’s still totally in love with her man Seal.
Who is John Legend’s girlfriend? She’s a hottie.
Anne Hathaway made a brief appearance. “I am 100% excited”. I like her, she’s sophisticated, elegant, humble and beautiful… not to mention super talented. She reminds me of Julia Roberts.
Marisa Tomei is looking hot! She’s nominated for her role in The Wrestler. Let’s see how she gets on.
The beautiful Beyonce. What more do I say.
Alicia Keys and Natalie Portman are about the brightest, literally on the carpet in their purple numbers.
Jessica Biel was flying solo, where’s JT I wonder?
“I don’t know what’s gonna come out of my mouth” Mickey Rourke on a potential Oscar speech. Let’s see. Rourke’s dog Loki passed on earlier this week, so in memory of his buddy, Rourke has a necklace with a picture of Loki around his neck. No word if this will be sold after the ceremony, but we’ll keep you posted.
Saw Queen Latifah taking photos/videos on her phone. Man what I’d do to get my hands on that ‘on-the-ground’ footage.
Nominees Brad and Angie have just arrived, rocking the red carpet. Angie in black is looking stunning. Simple but elegant, WOW! Brad compliments her well. Brad said, “It’s nice being nominated and it’s nice here with people we respect”.
Kate Winslet looks like a winner… I can see her accepting that Oscar. Breathtaking!
Ryan Seacrest- “You look nervous?”
Kate Winslet- “Yeah I’m extremely nervous actually”
Taraji P Henson also looked lovely tonight. She has been nominated in the the Best Supporting Actress category for her role in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
Penelope Cruz- spot on!
