For the record, I'm changing my Oscar vote before it airs.
We caught up on some of the nominated films this weekend to be better prepared for Sunday night.
We watched "August: Osage County" and "Dallas Buyers Club". "August" was a horribly depressing movie with a terrible ending, but Meryl Streep gave the performance of a lifetime. Watch it for her.
"Dallas" blew me away. Matthew McConaughey will go down in the Hollywood Hall of Fame for this performance. It was riveting and moved me to tears. I didn't even recognize Jared Leto for the first 30 minutes of the movie and wondered when he was going to appear. Then I realized that he had transformed himself beyond recognition. Wow. This is a must see for both of their performances.
Here are my votes:
Best Actress: Meryl Streep
Best Actor: Matthew McConaughey
Supporting Actress: Jennifer Lawrence
Supporting Actor: Jared Leto
Best Film: Not sure so sticking with "American Hustle" but I think there are several strong contenders!
I'll be back with my fashion review after the show. Enjoy the Oscars friends!!!
