Last year I had an Oscar Party. This year, I took the easy route. I went to an Oscar "bash" at the Alamo Drafthouse. For those in Portland, it's like a McMenamin's theater, for those in SLC, it's like Brewvies. If you live anywhere else, I'm sorry, I don't know your local stuff.
A college roommate, Heidi, was in town for work, she brought a friend, and Kaylyn, who I travel with, came too.
Here are my favorite parts. OK, my true favorite part is reading about the fashion and mishaps on Go Fug Yourself the next day. But here are my highlights from last night. Hey, I could make this a Top 5:
1) Keri Russell's Necklace
2) Frances McDormand being so excited for her husband, Joel Coen. I'm sure she was happy for Ethan too.
3) Ethan Coen just getting in, "Thank you" after the Coen Brothers first win and when given more time on the second win, saying, "I don't have a lot to add to what I said earlier. Thank you!"
4) Helen Mirren saying "cojones" with quite the accent.
5) Favorite moment of the night:
