Ok, it's 30 minutes to the live red carpet feed so before it all starts, I just wanted to quickly post about who I want to win/who I actually think will win. Let's see how I fare.

Best Picture
Black Swan
The Fighter
The Kids Are Alright
The King's Speech
127 Hours
The Social Network
Toy Story 3
The Winter's Bone
True Grit

I want either the King's Speech or The Social Network to win, but I think The Social Network will win. We all know the Oscars likes to give this one to a current, relevant film. I don't think a period piece will cut it. But who knows?

Actor in a Leading Role
Javier Bardem - Biutiful
Jeff Bridges - True Grit (no way, he won like, last year or something. Very recently anyway so he's got no chance)
Jesse Eisenberg - The Social Network (love him, but he's got no chance)
Colin Firth - The King's Speech
James Franco - 127 Hours

COLIN. COLIN. COLIN. Colin will win and I can't wait. He will be charming, effervescent and funny and clad in custom-made Tom Ford. YES.

P.S. Can I just say how criminal it is that Ryan Gosling was not nominated for this category? Michelle Williams was nominated for Blue Valentine but there is no way in hell she would have pulled off that performance without Ryan. The movie was all about both of them. Grr.

Actor in a Supporting Role
Christian Bale - The Fighter
John Hawkes - Winter's Bone
Jeremy Renner - The Town
Mark Ruffalo - The Kids Are Alright
Geoffrey Rush - The King's Speech

Would be lovely if Geoffrey won (don't count him out just yet - he got the BAFTA) but I think Christian Bale will win. And I'm totally down with that.

Actress in a Leading Role
Annette Bening - The Kids Are Alright
Nicole Kidman - Rabbit Hole
Jennifer Lawrence - Winter's Bone
Natalie Portman - Black Swan
Michelle Williams - Blue Valentine

Duh. Natalie will win. But I WANT Annette to steal it from right under her pregnant little self. How brilliant would that be? Can you imagine Natalie's face? In her cutsey mumsy little girl dress? (She has not been dressing herself well throughout this pregnancy, ugh).

Actress in a Supporting Role
Amy Adams - The Fighter
Helena Bonham Carter - The King's Speech
Melissa Leo - The Fighter
Hailee Steinfeld - True Grit
Jacki Weaver - Animal Kingdom

WANT: HBC, obv (also I want her to be dressed cray-cray or it's not the same) but Melissa Leo will get it.

Animated Feature Film
Toy Story 3
Despicable Me
The Illusionist

I want Toy Story 3 and it will be Toy Story 3.

Ok, they're the only categories I care about. LET'S GO SEE THE DRESSES!!!!

The Perfect Boyfriend

The top 10 attributes I want my future boyfriend to have...

1) Gale Harold/Brian Kinney's sex appeal...

2) Caleb Followill's sexy musician-ness...


3) Robert Pattinson's old hair...

(Ok, you can't even see his hair in these ones but he is so adorable. And funny! Just watch any interview, your pants might be charmed right off. Awe. This is making me feel all nostalgic for my old love.)

4) Jon Hamm's suave older gentleman-ness...

5) Glynn Purnell's ability to cook. As well as the ability to make me laugh in the kitchen. And do the washing up. Like Glynn Purnell's sous chef/commis...

6) Mature-Simon from Misfits' sexy serious wise maturity. And shoulders...

And maybe a pinch of Nathan's wit/caustic tongue.

7) Andrew Garfield's lanky, louche-like, nonchalant gait as well as his ability to wear the shit out of a suit...

Plus he would have a surprising set of guns. Like this.

8) Ryan Gosling's kissing ability and openness re: public displays of affection (for me)...

Not to mention his talent (GO SEE THIS!!!)

And his passionate activism.

His sweet charm...

Erm, and his charming ass...


9) Joshua Jackson's open adoration for his loved one...

 meeting her at the airport with flowers and saying things like: "She's wonderful and she's kind and she's loving and she's forgiving when I'm a moron, and not forgiving when I don't deserve to be forgiven, and pushes me in all the best possible ways and is inspiring and tough and smart and funny and no amount of good words . . . I want to be a better man because I want to always see that look in her eyes when she looks at me. I want to be the man that deserves that love." AWWWW.

10) Jake Gyllenhaal's love for his family...

his probably wonderful future fathering skills...

his ability to make a loved one (me) laugh...

his adorable dorkiness...

coupled with his attentiveness as a bf...

and his handsome off-duty style...

his ability to grow the perfect facial hair...

his perfect happy grin...

his baby blues...

his smug shit-eating smirk...

his arms...

his abs...

his back...

I pretty much just want a boyfriend who has the ability to be Jake.

If you read my last blog you may know that I have currently fucked my left ankle and can barely walk. As is always the case when you can't have something, I am now obsessed with wearing stupidly ridiculous high heels.

I mean, I've always loved them, obviously. But I rarely wear the craziest ones I have unless I am going somewhere super special and formal and I know there will be seating available. However on Saturday night I got it stuck inside my puny little mind that I wanted to wear my DVF wedges with my new clothes and strapped ice to my elevated ankle all day long in the hopes I would be able to get away with wearing them.

Visual aid of said DVF wedges:

Clearly, this was an unrealistic goal and I did not wear them for fear of actually breaking and forever damaging my exceptionally bruised and inordinately swollen ankle. Sads.

Anyway, now I am obsessed with just staring at pictures of really, really high heels and sighing wistfully. As if I could a) afford any of them and b) walk in them - not for another month at least. Wanna see which ones net-a-porter is currently tempting me with?

I want to say Givenchy? Maybe Balmain.


Also Burberry. Such a good heel.

Donna Karan


Elizabeth and James

Givenchy. Possibly the perfect clogs.

Givenchy <3

Gucci. Not usually a fan of Gucci but...


McQueen highlander stilletto


Of course, the Louboutin Pigalle.

The killerest of killer heels.

I want my foot to get better so I can kill it again in those Pigalles :-(

Alas, until such a day comes I will content myself with any of these shoes, thanks:

Surface to Air aka surface to my HEART



Elizabeth and James

Elizabeth and James

Jeffrey Campbell


Sam Edelman - really feeling this style of boots
