Life at the Oscars

I'm not embarrassed to tell you that I will be glued to the television this weekend to watch the glitz and glamour of the Oscars. My husband will moan about having the TV hijacked by this superfluous nonsense, as I drift in and out of sleep, waiting to see George Clooney. (Don't worry, my husband will pay me back with hours of fishing shows.)

As a pre-Oscar Hors d'oeuvre, I highly recommend you stop by Life Magazine for a preview of their Best Oscar Photos, like this one here of Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly Backstage, 1956. The photos are simply dreamy. Happy Oscar weekend to all of you.

Somehow, the Oscars have lost a lot of the glamour for me. I miss the feminine gowns and elegant poise of yesteryear. If it was more like the days when Kelly and Hepburn were gracing the red carpet, then I think it would bring back even more viewers. However, I might pop over and see what's going on. Have fun!

Okay, although I didn't watch the oscars, I watched a bit of the red carpet beforehand and there were actually a few dresses I really liked! But it was much more fun to view the LIFE photos of yesteryear!
