Well, it's that time of year again. The Academy Awards. Are you excited? I hope so!
I'm itching to see the gorgeous (and hideous) gowns glide down the red carpet. I'm anxious to see my favorite movie star and my future husband host the event together. I'm hoping a certain Harvard-educated beauty wins for Best Actress.
If you've been busy and haven't been able to catch up on what the Oscars are all about this year, here are a few things I recommend. A sort of Oscar 2011 mini sampler, I guess you could say.
First, familiarize yourself with how the Oscar nominations and voting process works. It's actually a lot more interesting than you think!
Let Tchaikovsky give you goosebumps...or swanbumps.
Rent the nominated documentary, Exit Through The Gift Shop. It is the most interesting documentary I have seen in a LONG time. Plus, if it wins the Oscar, Banksy may pick up the award in an outlandish costume...or not even show up at all.
Steal Anne Hathaway's style.
Get to know her co-host and Best Actor nominee, James Franco.
Celebrate with delicious food! The official Oscar website offers fun recipes, such as Deviled Eggs with Caviar and Chili Orange Kettle Corn. Or, make a toast to the winners with a Moet Starlet.
And finally, don't forget to have a glamorous weekend!
