Firstly, let me say Woohoo! Leo won best actor! Finally! I do think there would have been a riot of Titanic and Romeo & Juliet film lovers (could you imagine that!?) if he hadn't. He truly deserved the award.
Now, let's get to the REAL reason why most of us watch these award shows - for the red carpet glamour of course. Even my husband knows that when red carpet season rolls around, the red carpet shows are always on record on TV. In London the red carpet doesn't start till around 10:30pm (way past my bed time - LOL), so I always watch the next day and can't wait for the gorgeous dresses to hit the carpet.
Below are my favourite looks from the Oscars this year, with Rooney Mara being #1 in my opinion.
Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton
Brie Larson in Gucci
Cate Blanchett in Armani Prive and Tiffany & Co. Jewellery
Charleze Theron in Dior Haute Couture and Harry Winston Jewellery
Jennifer Lawrence in Dior Couture and Chopard Jewellery
Lady Gaga in Brandon Maxwell and Lorraine Shwartz Jewellery
Olivia Wilde in Valentino Haute Couture Dress, Neil Lane Jewellery, and Roger Vivier Bag
Priyanka Chopra in Zuhair Murad Dress, Lorraine Schwartz Jewellery, and Rauwolf Clutch
Margot Robbie in Tom Ford Dress, Forevermarket Diamonds Jewellery, and The Row Bag
Rachel McAdams in August Getty Atelier
Rooney Mara in Givenchy Haute Couture Dress and Fred Leighton Jewellery
Sophie Turner in Galvan for Opening Ceremony x Swarovski Dress, Christian Louboutin Shoes
Naomi Watts in Armani Privee
Daisy Ridley in Chanel Haute Couture Dress, Chanel Fine Jewellery, and Christian Louboutin Shoes
Megalyn Echikunwoke in Prabal Gurung Dress, Irene Neuwirth Earrings, and Tamara Mellon Shoes
Alicia Vikander and Margot Robbie are favourites as well; and Naomi Watt's dress has grown on me over the past few days - I am loving the colour.
