The 2015 Academy Awards took place this past Sunday, Feb. 22. The film industry anxiously awaits this night as they get recognition for their hard and outstanding job.
Neil Patrick Harris, who entertained the audience with his genuine comedy, hosted this year’s event.
Some people disliked the fact that he appeared in his underwear toward the end of the show, and others just considered it as part of his humorous personality.
This year’s awards brought up some emotional moments. One of them was when Common and John Legend sang Glory, a track for the film “Selma.”
The crowd seemed moved by the song’s message. Let’s not forget the whole different side that was seen of Lady Gaga. Whenever her name is mentioned, the first thing that comes to mind is how she has come up with some very strange ways to call the attention of the audience, like her meat dress and other attention-getting dresses that she has worn in the past.
Lady Gaga performed a 50th anniversary tribute to The Sound of Music. After her moving performance, Lady Gaga received a standing ovation, which caused some tears to roll down her face.
Up next, Julie Andrews came on stage and thanked Lady Gaga for the amazing tribute.
After all the controversy Lady Gaga has created with her unique style, this was a complete shift in her career. Not only did her discrete and elegant appearance contributed, but also her voice could be appreciated better.
Moving on, there is something about the Academy shows and other awards that always gets people talking. No matter how good or bad, the red carpet never ceases to surprise viewers.
This year, some of the colors that prevailed down the red carpet were red and white.
According to Forbes Life, the best-dressed title this year is once again, Lupita Nyong’o. “The beautiful custom gown created by Francisco Costa featured cascading strands of 6,000 pearls and was paired with Chopard jewels.”
Lupita N’yongo was not the only one to wow the red carpet. The famous “Pitch Perfect” star, Anna Kendrick, got some positive looks. She was wearing a custom pink Thakoon gown.
On the other hand, there were also stars that managed to receive the negative looks on the red carpet.
Lady Gaga might have awed the crowd with her performance, but fell short on the red carpet, wearing red gloves. As memes circulated on the Internet that night, she looked like she came from washing dishes and straight to the red carpet.
She was not the only one who got bad reviews on her Oscar’s gown. Blanca Blanco attempted to wear a dress that looked like fire, but her attempt failed big time. Instead she got people fired up about her outfit.
No matter how good or bad the awards are, what I like about the Academy Awards is the recognition that is given, not only the faces and stars from the movies, but also to the people who is behind the camera directing and creating productions that we all enjoy watching
