2012 Oscars Round-Up

My round-up of some don't miss Oscar fun! Schedules, fashion, hosts, recipes and humor


  1. Don't want to miss all of the coverage? LA Times has a guide to the shows that will be covering the Academy Awards.
  2. What is your favorite all time fashion win? Here is Andre Leon Talley's list from Vogue.
  3. People Magazine's picks from last year.
  4. Picks of memorable Oscar Dresses from About.com.
  5. Stylebistro picks the best Oscar dresses of the past decade.
  6. Here is a fun (and true!) article by Sharon Greenthal on the most predictably entertaining things about the Oscars.
  7. Here is a link to Roger Ebert's Guide to Watching the Oscar Films on Gowatchit. Included are Roger's reviews of the nominated films and you can also start a movie queue on Gowatchit. I still need to see Hugo! I love the idea of having all of Ebert's reviews in one easy accessible place.
  8. Here is the official site for the 83rd Academy Awards for a list of all the nominees.
  9. Whether you are home with your family, or hosting a fabulous Oscar soiree. Here are some awesome sounding food and drink ideas for Oscar night. I think I need to get to Whole Foods and buy some bacon jam stat!
  10. What is the Oscars without a little controversy? This year the host kerfuffle and Sacha Baron Cohen. Personally, I'm excited to see my favorite Billy Crystal back. My vote next year is Neil Patrick Harris.
  11. Speaking of my man Billy Crystal--he pioneered bluescreening himself directly into the films as part of the Oscars. Here is the trailer for this year's  and a montage of his best hosting moments. "I am SO not Spartacus!"
