Hold Fast To Dreams… The Oscars 2014 Edition

Lupita Nyongo Oscar Quote Miss KrisJust a few notes on last night’s magical Oscars… Last night’s Oscars red carpet was dazzling. As expected Lupita N’yongo did not disappoint in a baby blue Prada gown. The internet is comparing her and her Oscar gown to that of Cinderella which is very fitting! What a way to cap off a very Cinderella like journey. The newcomer took home an Oscar for her 1st role in a major motion picture and while doing so left us with a nugget of truth about believing in ourselves and believing in the validity of our dreams. Just the beautiful inspiration we need to jump start a new week.

Surprisingly last nights show was full of inspirational moments. I loved Matthew McConaughey’s profound speech encouraging us all to just keep chasing and keep living… alight, alright, alright (watch here) and I loved Cate Blanchett’s golden moment reminding everyone that women do indeed run the world (watch here). At times a few of the speeches were a little Joel Osteen-ish, but isn’t that just what we needed to walk away inspired and uplifted?!?

I have no regrets that I devoted 3.5 hours to last nights viewing (plus the 100 of red carpet coverage before hand). A solid show full of hilarious moments from host Elle DeGeneres. SHOW HIGHLIGHTS: the ordering of the pizza, the taking of the selfie, Pink singing Somewhere Over The Rainbow in a show stopping Elie Saab gown, Ellen and her Glenda the Good Witch costume and Bette Midler bring us to tears while singing her song from Beaches. What did you think of last nights Oscars?

    The best speeches was Jared Leto and Lupita, period. To start off the night, Jared Leto!?!?! I was snapping/clapping/crying/wowing. My boyfriend gave me the side eye
    like, “b*tch calm down.” LOL! It made me want to watch My So Called Life al over again.

    Lupita was so excited and HER BROTHER’S reaction?! I mean, so genuine and so much love there. Her’s was definitely inspiring.

    OH and Bette Midler, enough said.
