The REAL Winners of the 85th Academy Awards
Oh, the Oscars! Close to a billion (yes, a billion) human beings around the world crammed in front of their television sets last night to witness Hollywood’s biggest night. A night where journalists and bloggers far and wide live-Tweet and feverishly take notes in preparation for their morning after “Winners and Losers” lists. We here at CSC are no different—we love lists. However, who were the real winners last night? Well, these guys (and gal) were.
- Grey Poupon - If any one person or entity could “win” the entire Oscars, it was Grey Poupon…in a landslide. Resurrecting the “Pardon Me” campaign for the Oscars was like telling the NFL a few weeks ago “Hey, we got this. We understand our target demographic—they watch the Oscars, buddy.” And don’t even get us started on the “lost footage" from said campaign—brilliant!
- Quentin Tarantino - Q stepped up on stage looking like he just came from the set of Hangover 3, thanked HIMSELF and walked out the Heavyweight Champion of Destroying Black Tie Looks. Sure, he looked absolutely awful, but he will forever be remembered for giving us the closest thing to a Kanye West Oscar acceptance speech, and for that, we thank him.
- Corinne Bishop - If one person stood to gain from making an appearance at last night’s Oscars, Jamie Foxx’s beautiful offspring, Ms. Corinne Bishop, tops that list. Only 18 years old(!), Corinne has starlet written all over her face. We have a funny feeling that the studio calls will start piling up real, real soon,
- William Shatner - Long supposed dead, Captain Kirk rose from the ashes to prove that he’s still one of Hollywood’s biggest (did you see the size of him on that jumbotron?!) and most respectable (did you see the way he absolutely toyed with Mr. McFarlane?!) stars.
- Daniel Day Lewis - Being nominated in a category in which DDL is also featured is basically the equivalent of buying a Powerbowl lotto ticket. Sure you have a chance to win, but really? That said, how about his tux?! Midnight blue shawl collars are always a good way to stand out and add a little flavor without taking too much of a risk during a black tie event, and Mr. Lewis absolutely knocked this one out of the park. BRAVO.
