Our Oscar viewing party

Last night a small group of family and friends gathered at our home to celebrate the 84th Annual Academy Awards.  We teared up as Octavia Spencer won Best Supporting Actress for The Help, we cheered as Christopher Plummer won Best Supporting Actor for Beginners (Vive le Canada), and we nodded approval when Midnight in Paris won for best original screenplayWe critiqued the fashions, showed our concerns about how thin Angelina looked, worried about J-Lo popping out of that dress (seems like those concerns were valid) and decided as a group that we just had to see The Artist and find out first hand what all the buzz was about.  We had a fabulous time!  Here are some pictures of our Oscar viewing party.  We had such a great time I can’t help but pencil it in for next year…  same Oscar time, same Oscar channel.

Our Oscar Picks For Best Dressed

If you happened to tune into the Oscar’s, leave a comment and let me know which red carpet dress was your favourite?


  1. Hey Hon,
    Loved the party ! Can’t wait for next year – but I’ll be more prepared for the onslaught of cameras!! I’ll be practising my poses and pouty look. “The girl” had that one down! But “the boy” he gave an excellent pre-show dance routine!

    • Weren’t they absolutely awesome! They had a blast and were wonderfully engaging. The Oscars were fantastic, but for me, my dynamic duo stole the show! As for the paparazzi, we’ll practice our poses at camp this summer and be fierce for next years Oscar photos!-)

  2. You have a lovely family 🙂
    Oh, I missed the Oscars this year! That used to be a big thing for me, but with all my mommy duties taking over, that has totally slipped my mind.
    I just have to say that I love Christopher Plummer 🙂

    • Awww, thanks Pepper! And I agree about Mr. Plummer, he’s SO debonaire! I really hope he plays Stratford this summer because I am definitely going to be there with bells on!

  3. Char Darling…
    I just adore your family pic! The kids are growing so quickly and it looks like you had a great time for the Oscar’s… Blowing kisses my Dear… xxxx
