Oscar!

I love the Oscars.
I love them, love the red carpet pre-Oscar show, love seeing the gowns and the tuxedos, the hair and makeup. I love it all!

I've been watching Oscar for years. I have so many memories...
I remember the streaker who ran out behind David Niven!
John Wayne was heartbreakingly ill when he presented the Oscar for Best Picture in 1979.
Barbara Streisand's see-through pant suit was not that see-through. I still don't know what the fuss was about.
Cher knew how to sock 'em to the establishment...great costumes, both times!
Sally Field discovered we really loved her.
Julia Roberts enjoyed the feeling to the ultimate!
James Cameron really felt like the "King of the World.
Jack Palance pushed up a bunch of times...what a guy.
Cuba Gooding was so thankful.
I laughed and cheered as Roberto Benigni seat-walked across the rows of chairbacks to get to the stage!
Sacheen Littlefeather picked up Marlon Brando's Oscar.
Rob Lowe certainly cut the rug with Snow White.
More funny moments than I can remember from Billy Crystal and Robin Williams.

I'm sure there will be many more memorable and hysterical Oscar moments in the future...I'm looking forward to next year, already.

"John Wayne made his last public appearance on the April 9, 1979 Oscar telecast. Before announcing the Best Picture winner, he spoke to the assembled, 'Believe me when I tell you I'm mighty pleased that I can amble down here tonight. Oscar and I have something in common. Oscar first came to the Hollywood scene in 1928. So did I. We're both a little weather beaten, but we're still here and plan to be around a whole lot longer.' " ~ Oscar website
