Best Dressed from the 2015 Academy Awards

This year I wouldn't let myself watch the 2015 Academy Awards (aka. The Oscars) until I had watched most of the film nominees. I was able to catch The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Imitation Game, The Theory of Everything, Boyhood, Birdman, and most of the animated and documentary shorts just to name a few before I was satisfied that I could watch the Academy Awards without feeling like I was missing something. 

My Favorite Highlights from the Awards:
  • Neil Patrick Harris as the host
  • The opening sequence.
  • The Birdman spoof
  • Patricia Arquette's Oscar speech (watch here)
  • Lady Gaga's Sound of Music tribute (watch here).
  • Tegan and Sara and the Lonely Island's "Everything is Awesome" performance. 
  • John Legend and Common performing "Glory"
Fashion

I'm not going to lie. I wasn't really blown away by any one outfit on the Oscar's red carpet this year, but here were a few of my favorites.

I am continuously loving Keria Knightley's Chanel baby-bump style.

Lupita always looks stunning on the red carpet and her white pearl dress was no exception.

Rosamund Pike wore the dress I'd most like to wear if I attended the Oscars. I love the color red and I thought her dress was super figure-flattering.

I thought Jessica Chastain looked lovely in navy!

I've heard that there's been a bit of controversy over comments made about Zendaya's Oscar hairstyle, but I thought her look was totally classy and hip.

What's Making Me Laugh: The New Girl's Popcorn Machine Bit

I love the Fox TV show, The New Girl! The show just keeps getting funnier and funnier and this week they had one of their funniest bits yet. In the episode, Jess (played by Zooey Deschanel) thinks that her friend CeCe (played by Hannah Simone) has a crush on Jess's ex/ roommate, Nick Miller (played by Jake Johnson). It's not true!

Meanwhile, CeCe has been hounding Nick to purchase a popcorn machine for the bar they both work at, so when Jess approaches Nick to talk about CeCe, he thinks she's talking about the machine. Hilarity ensues! 

The clip below is low quality, but you'll get the idea.
