The Arts Council Oscar Review

We hope you all enjoyed the 84th Annual Academy Awards last night as much as we did! We have a lot of opinions on dresses, poses, winners, and performances from last nights show.

Let’s start with The Arts Council’s Executive Director Gladys Wyants picks for best and worst dressed of the evening:

Worst Dressed: Melissa McCarthy

Gladys thought it was just too much fabric for Melissa and the color was all wrong for her complexion.

Best Dressed: Glenn Close

Glenn, in Zac Posen, looked fabulous. She was dressed age appropriately, and the color was fantastic on her!

Nairika’s Picks:

Worst Dressed: Sandra Bullock

It pains me to write this because I am such a huge fan of hers, but last night was definitely a miss. Not only was the dress wrong, but her hair was pulled back so tightly she looked like the female version of Bruce Jenner…Ouch!

Best Dressed: Milla Jovovich

Milla was perfection. Her hair, make-up, the white dress on the red carpet-absolutely stunning!

Ginna’s Picks:

Worst Dressed: Jennifer Lopez

We get it, you’re hot. This dress was not an Oscar dress. J. Lo has pulled out some glamorous looks before and I was disappointed last night when she showed up in this cheap looking number. Also, I hated the hair it was pulled way too tightly. My award for best up-do would definitely go to Tina Fey!

Best Dressed: I have a tie between The Help girls Jessica Chastain and Emma Stone.

First of all I am a huge fan of The Help’s Jessica Chastain and of Alexander McQueen, so putting the two together was a no brainer! I thought the print was too die for, so flattering, her hair was simple and lovely-loved it all!

Could Emma Stone be any cuter? I would wear this dress tomorrow! A lot of people have been critical saying it is too similar to Nicole Kidman’s 2009 Oscar gown, but I think Emma looks young, fresh, and age appropriate!

Before we go any further, has anyone else been “Jolegging” around the office all morning? WE HAVE!

  

 

Whether spontaneously striking a pose down the hallway or while in the middle of an important call, we CAN’T stop JOLEGGING!

Did you know…

Last summer as a part of The Arts Council’s Movies on the Green Series we brought you RANGO, last night’s winner for Best Animated Feature!

You can always count on The Arts Council bringing you quality entertainment!

A shout out to the amazing, talented, gravity defying, perfection presented by Cirque du Soleil!

We at The Arts Council enjoyed an evening of haute couture, excellence in filmmaking, and visual artistry. Unfortunately, Angelina, your leg just seemed a little out of place, wouldn’t you say?

Check out our start-studded events coming in March! Livingston Taylor, March 15

 Wycliffe Gordon, March 24,

and indpendent film A Gift for the Village, March 23
