Author: Emily MorrisSunday night brought the Oscars to our own screens once again with some hot nominations and of course all eyes on what fashions would be paraded down the red carpet. This year the glamour stakes went sleek and refined - not a lot of overtly showy numbers and all very sexy and slim line. My own money went to Jessica Chastain who showed off a gorgeous gold frock with her flaming locks. My daughter however was captivated by Anne Hathaway who was all smiles and gorgeousness - hard not to love her! There were no huge surprises with Argo taking best picture (some controversy as Ben Affleck was not nominated for best director but he didn�t look too disappointed when accepting the award alongside fellow beardy one George Clooney). Best Actor went to Daniel Day-Lewis for Lincoln - a record for the actor who now has 3 of the golden statues to polish! Best actress went to Jennifer Lawrence for Silver Linings Playbook, although she will most be remembered not only as one of the youngest actors to receive a statue, but also for her (graceful) fall up the stairs in her posh frock. That just gets them started and it was a packed night of entertainment with some big performances from the Les Miserable cast, a dance from Charlize Theron and Channing Tatum and my personal favourite - a performance of Oscar winning song 'Skyfall' by Adele. For me, it just gives me a long list of movies I need to see - or at least attempt to see before the next lot of awards roll around!
