Grouchy about the Oscars…

March 7, 2010 at 9:46 pm 5 comments

So it’s Oscar Night. All the celebs are dressed up in designer names, wearing jewelry worth millions, and posing for hundreds of picture-hungry photographers.

I think it’s ridiculous. All of it. Sure, these people deserve their accolades. However, I think their award ceremonies (mainly the bit leading up to them) have been blown way out of proportion. I mean, seriously, who gives a crap what they’re wearing? Why can’t they be allowed to just make their movies, dress nicely (not extravagantly), go accept their award, and be done with it? The running time of the televised awards night could be cut down immensely if these wannabe commentators stopped asking “What are you wearing?!” and got right down to business.

Think about the electricity, energy, and money that could be saved if they cut out the clothing chatter. And don’t get me started on how much money could be saved if such crazy amounts weren’t paid for the dresses, the tuxes, the bags, and the earrings.

I bid them all good luck. I just wish the media would focus more on their talent than on “who” they’re wearing, and how “hot or not” they look. (Thanks for the pic!)

    Yup, your absolutely right! I hate all those shows about what these people wear! The View is doing too! “Tune in the day after the Oscars to see a review on what everybody WORE!” I mean come on! They don’t even mention a thing about their talents, and the awards they got for them at all! Anyways, well done! Great blog Sis!

    No offense, but the reason why these people (usually women) ask about what is being worn is because other women (usually Oprah readers) care so much about what actress wears what. Furthermore, clothing companies get their attire advertised and endorsed since all the Oprah fans are going to wanna buy what the media tells them is “hot”.

    Also, i have nothing against women; just those who live below their potential.

      No offense taken. I can agree with you to an extent. I don’t think every woman is like that, nor is every woman who watches Oprah like that. However, there are many who fit your description. Unfortunate, but true. Thanks for reading! =)
