This morning on GMA, they showed last night's interview where Meryl Streep confessed to Robin Roberts that she was so excited when her name was announced that her belt popped undone when she jumped up. She called it a wardrobe "misfunction." :lol:

Very cool montage of reaction gifs from over the years: http://fourfour.typepad.com/fourfour/2012/02/how-they-lost.html

LOL forever at Anna Paquin; that really was the cutest reaction I've ever seen to winning.

Meryl's backstage interview after winning:

She understands "Streep fatigue." :)

Yay Meryl! :rollin:

Sad for Glen Close though. :(

Thought it would go to Glenn - she's been so robbed in the past. Or Viola Davis. But Davis' role was basically a supporting one IMO. But I'm happy for Meryl. I've seen The Iron Lady and while the picture itself is not perfect, her transformation into Thatcher is nothing short of amazing.

Oscars are always cheesy, but I thought it was sooooo much better than last year (but what wouldn't be), and I actually laughed a bunch of times.

Was this the first year they haven't produced the nominated songs? And there were just 2?

My favorite dress is still Penelope Cruz. Liked Gwyneth's with the cape too. And Milla Jovovich's dress.

I was so glad to see Viola Davis with her natural short hair. An improvement over those wigs and extensions. I wish more black women would end the tyranny of the hair weave.

I think Glenn Close has now become THE sentimental favorite to win the next oscar. Well, she has for me...now that Streep has finally won her long overdue 3rd oscar! ;)

I thought Gywneth Paltrow and her cape dress looked amazing.

My French coworker is over the moon tonight. He said he saw Dujardin perform as part of a very lame comedy troupe at his brother's graduation. And my coworker is not that old. :lol:

And he had fun with the FCC not giving a crap with bleeping out curse words in non-English languages. Dujardin apparently yelled, "Waahhouuu f*cking sh*t thank you so much!"

:cheer2: Whee, vCash!

I would have been happy for either Meryl or Viola. And I disagree Viola's was a supporting role. For me she carried the movie & I thought her performance was very powerful. I thought Best Supporting could have equally gone to Alison Janney or Jessica Chastain or Bryce Dallas Howard although Octavia had more screen time & was just as good if not better.

Close is now tied with Deborah Kerr & Thelma Ritter for lady with the most noms (6) and no wins. Good company, but :( nonetheless!

(IMHO, she deserved it for "Fatal Attraction" in '87.)

I completely agree with the above post re: best dressed were Cruz, Jovovich, and Gwynnie. :cheer2:

She was amazing in that but for me her best performance is in "Dangerous Liaisons". I think she deserved one for that role.

I'd add Glenn Close to the best dressed list. ... :) Mature gals have to try harder and have less margin for error ... Glenn couldn't have done it better, last night.
