This is late and I know the Oscars are probably off your mind by now, but oh well! How were the Oscars everyone? I for one was pretty satisfied with the winners. I was not a huge fan of Neil Patrick Harris though. He just was not that funny to me but you have to give the guy props because hosting the Oscars is no easy job. There were some great music performances too (“Glory” by Common and John Legend, The Sound of Music tribute by Lady Gaga).Let’s go over the winners, shall we?

- Oprah Winfrey in Vera Wang. She looked FAB!
