Dish Upon a Star

Anne Hathaway is a National Treasure

Posted on: March 1, 2011

Since Billy Crystal was canonized as The Only One Who Can Host the Oscars, I have a difficult time the day after the show. Everyone slams the host, not taking into account the Oscar audience/viewer is The Worst Audience Ever, i.e. ready to unleash the second the first star is spotted on the red carpet. The entire production is steeped in negativity (though Cate Blanchett’s dress was truly a shower curtain) with bright spots in genuinely humble speeches and real talent being rewarded. Hathaway worked her butt off and held the show up for everyone. Lots of twisting and running and falling and quipping. I’ve never seen an actor work so hard to please. Bravo to all those who participated, especially Anne!

Excellent Fashion: Helena Bonham Carter scores big, along with the red dresses worn by Sandra Bullock and Anne Hathaway.

Best Tux/Hair Combo: Colin Firth. He can look dowdy now and then but last night, he gleamed.

Dish’s Suggestions for Next Year: Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert and Aaron Sorkin should write the show and this year’s writers should be fired. Host choices–Ellen DeGeneres, Hugh Jackman, Robert Downey Jr., Sofia Vergara, Jane Lynch, Steve Carell, and Sean Hayes.

And Dish predicted that James Franco would wind up in drag.

Daily Charlie Sheen: Saw frightening TMZ interviews online. Pale, gaunt, obviously riddled with drugs, could not sit still. I don’t know how he’ll convince anyone of his sanity. I kind of wish this were really a documentary spoof a la Joachim Phoenix instead of crazy behavior before death. Dish lost hope when Denise Richards filed for divorce while 7 months pregs. She was right all along about how sick he is. If only his family could have him committed. I’d want the same tough love if I went bananas.
