    I'm extremely happy for Jennifer Hudson ooo! God is on her side like no other! I'm mad that dude from "Little Miss Sunshine" won for best supporting actor. I loved "The Departed", I think that movie is brilliant. I'm happy it won like 3 or 4 awards.....sha all in all...I still wanted Leonardo to win...I mean daaang...when is he gonna get that award???

    I didn't like the ruggy look of the tail/bottom of the dress...it was a little too redundant. I loooved Jennifer Lopez, Cameron Diaz, and this girl, I don't know her name...she had like a braided necklace thingy attached to her dress...and goes around her neck, and the back was toooo much! It was like black little strings connecting from the top to the waist. She looked classy.

    Candylecious in the Hizzousssse!!!!

    Finally, I made it here, sorry Y'all for pulling an MIA, I made this bet with my friend, she said I could not stay off the Internet for a whole weekend....................Let's just say I am 350 bucks richer........

    OK, to the outfits, I am not a big fan of the red carpet, but I caught glimpses of certain fabulous and disastrous outfits alike.

    First J. Hud, abeg that her outfit was horrendous, did she just step out of Battlestar Galactica, I guess she was tryna start a trend with that cheap Mushin Jacket, but sweetcakes you just joined this party, you never reach trend setter status, she seems to have an image issue, she is never quite right!!, over to the dress she wore for the performance, what is wrong with this girl, why does she like these lacrye fabrics, she is a plus size woman, she should take more care with her fabrics, cos some are not very flattering like that number she wore for the performance made her look ten times her original size..................... Like Akos said, you gotta have it!! Big ups to her on her award tho, I hope she doesnt become another Cuba Gooding or Halle? is all I'm saying.

    Eddie Murphy: I was soooo rooting for my Eddie, he so deserved to win, this show is very political bordering on personal bias. Very disappointed, but like Will Smith said, one should not let any award validate their quality of work, Eddie Murphy will sell out a theatre faster than all dem other dudes put together.........................if that aint success, tell me what is.

    Leo: Same as Eddie, dem don cheat dis boy tire, na wa, even from the way all the directors and producers were singing his praise, this boi don try. This academy awards voters should be very ashamed...............

    Beyonce: I liked her dress. Bee styles it up all day............ I think what it is, is that she has "IT, cos she is still a country girl, with a country accent who is not tryna change that for no one, and you dont see anybody calling her ghetto..................... and she got vocals too, when she did the duet with J.Hud, I was thinking Jennifer would trump her, cos of all the hoopla about J. Hud but the girl held her own and looked stunning too, I for one thought she did better. I particularly liked the outfit she performed in. Very classy. J.Hud could use some lessons in that dept.

    Anika Noni Rose: It's appalling the way she was ignored in the whole procedure. I stayed through till the end of dreamgirls cos of her and Eddie, they made the movie work for me. I think J. Hud was blown up the more cos of the whole thing with Bee, and actually J.Hud and Bee were not even the main attraction for me.............. I think this here lady is very talented and deserved more accolades than she was accorded.

    In conclusion, I would like to say that this was probably the best Oscar night for me, cos it was not as boring as previous ones tho I had to FF some boring acceptance speeches and moments ala Celine's performance, on the upside I thot Ellen was really hilarious......................This is me signing out till Oscar time next year....................

    That's why I would advise anybody in this limelight or aspiring to be, to be slim, this plus size thing no dey easy to rock as a celebrity, cos as a plus size person you have limited options, you have angles you need to shoot your photos from, so as not to look humongous, you have to find outfits that flatter and accentuate your thick curves and not detract from it, in short the thing no easy.......

    Then if pesin decide to stay plus-sized, work it, work it, work it, and a lot of them, sadly ,are failing to do so.

    Nope. Kate Winslet won Best Actress, Titanic, and I dont think Leo was nominated at all that year, even though Titanic swept the awards including Best Picture!
