2010 Academy Awards Recap

Tonight's the first night in like over 5 years that I'm actually at home able to watch any type of awards show & I'm glad I'm actually enjoying it. I have to admit I expected tons of laughs from tonight's show, considering Alec Baldwin & Steve Martin, but so far the only funny part I've seen is when they spoofed Paranormal Activities. I love how Steve Martin slapped Alec Baldwin...hilarious.

Anyhow, I was only able to watch half of the red carpet event (because I forgot what time this thing started) but I did notice that some of these ladies chose the ugliest dresses. You'd swear they lost a bet or something. So in honor of tonight's' 82nd Academy Awards I will bestow upon you the privileged (ha ha) of knowing my picks of best & worst dressed...YAY!

Best dressed:

Anna Kendrick

Cameron Diaz

Elizabeth Banks

Helen Mirren

Penelope Cruz

Queen Latifah

Rachel McAdams

Sandra Bullock

Worst dressed:

Diane Kruger

Amanda Seyfried

Mariah Carey

Nicole Richie

Sarah Jessica Parker

Zoe Saldana
