Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Blog Guy, as a Hollywood media insider AND a fashion blogger, you must come under intense pressure to publicize all the glitzy designer creations worn by celebrities to the Oscars, right?
Boy, I’ll say. Those publicists are very pushy.
So how do you handle the pressure?
Well, I’m basically a nice guy, so I try to help them out. For instance, an e-mail came my way trying to publicize Oscars celebrities wearing Sergio Rossi shoes.
It mentioned Penelope Cruz in black satin platforms, Michelle Pfeiffer in wine satin platforms, Rachel McAdams, Elizabeth Banks, and so on….
I was in a supportive mood, so here are some shots of those women.
But Blog Guy, um, you can’t see shoes on any of them.
What with the long gowns this year, they may as well have been wearing Crocs, huh?
Blog Guy, as a Hollywood insider, who do you think will get Best Actor at the Oscars this weekend?
I don’t do predictions, but I can steer readers in a useful direction. For years, there has been a tradition that the actors with classic Hollywood good looks lose, and some goofy-looking guy wins.
Welcome to a new installment of our popular feature, “Stuff Maybe We Should Have Explained in the Caption, but Didn’t.”
The caption on these photos tells us this singer named Anahi “performs” during a song festival in Chile.
Blog Guy, I hear your career advice is great. I’m graduating soon, and I’ll be looking for something good. My dad always said I should have a desk job.
Then I’ve got a great career path for you. Check out this guy in the photo. That could be you.
Jeez, Blog Guy, I’m getting so tired of all these movie awards. Okay, the Oscars are great, but I mean, there’s the Golden Globes, the Critics’ Choice, and on and on and on. What’s the WORST awards ceremony in the movie business?
I’d have to go with the Cardboard Poster Awards, which were just held a couple of days ago.
Blog Guy, I read a Reuters story saying singer Carly Simon is giving fans a chance to have some fun with one of the great mysteries in pop music, namely, who is the narcissistic target of her classic, “You’re So Vain”?
Anyway, I recall you used to hang with Carly and her crowd at Martha’s Vineyard, and I thought you might know the big secret.
Well, I’ve already blogged about my own date with Paris…
Yeah, that was sad. As I recall, she fell asleep and tore her own face off. But I mean, say a real guy took her to dinner or a concert or something, how would you know if she’s enjoying herself?
