During the Oscars

(Upon hearing that Bradley Cooper and Gerard Butler would be presenting an award together.)

Me, perking right the heck up and actually looking up from my knitting: "Ooooh . . . It's like a Man-Candy Sandwich!"

And it was, cuz, behold:





At which point my husband turned to give me a look (read: glare).

Except whatever, dude. Let's see Natalie Portman and Zoey Deschanel come out together sometime to present an award. Then we can talk--after our living room finishes imploding, that is.

I also received looks and head-shakes every time I clapped and squealed "Heeeee, Colin Firth!" Which was pretty much every time the camera looked at him or somebody talked about him. But please do not ask me why they had Julianne "We Hung Out for Three Days That One Time" Moore be the one to talk about him. They should have hauled Jennifer Ehle out there for an impromptu P&P reunion. Then you woulda seen some imploding--and the only surprise of the evening.

Ooooh....Colin Firth. **Sigh**

Not sure who those two guys are, but the one on the right is a looker. I could get excited over watching him.

*perks up*

Did someone say Natalie Portman and Zooey Deschanel?

I (and all the girls at our Oscar party) had the exact same reaction when those two came out. I think we even pressed rewind right away, just to savor it even more. I also squealed with delight every time they showed Zach Effron. I'm not ashamed.

Dude, all you have to do is say Colin Firth's name to make me swoon. It really doesn't even matter what he looks like in the moment... memories of him as Mr. Darcy are enough.

We had EXACTLY the same reaction to Gerard and Bradley. If I could make them mini size and carry them with me everywhere, I would.

Also, Colin Firth=swoon.

And if I could look like Demi Moore when I'm 50, that'd be great.

I'm pretty partial to swooning over
Mark Firth *sigh*

Why couldn't that happen? It's like Hollywood is bitter they aren't responsible for a fantastic P&P.

That photo made me sad I missed the Oscars.

Very, very yes! And here http://pitchfork.com/tv/#/musicvideo/4113-she-him-in-the-sun-merge, have three minutes of Zooey time to sooth GH's jealous soul. (She even dances in a cute, non-technical way.)

I'm intrigued that these two ladies were your examples of female deliciousness...seeing that my husband will only cave and confess the beauty of 5 women (that I can think of right now). In addition to Zoe and Natalie, Uma Thurman, Cate Blanchett and Hilary Swank rank as worthy. The man denies some of the typical list-makers - Catherine Zeta-Jones, Kate Hudson, Penelope Cruz and Angelina Jolie - are praise-worthy in any regard. Now I'm a fairly conservative chickadee, but I cannot help but nod with approval upon sight of Penelope Cruz's hotness.

P.S. Did you find Bradley Cooper attractive before he went mainstream-protagonist? There was a time when he was the "cute but friend only" one...(Alias), did you spy the diamond in the rough?

Angela Noelle, loved Bradley Cooper as Will. Sigh . . .

And YEAH. GH doesn't think that Angelina Jolie is hot either. I have no response to that, because I totally think she is.

That is a lovely sight to behold, I agree.

Speaking of knitting, Spitfire was wearing some absolutely fantastic slippers last night. She told me you made them. You are so talented!

Yummy - and Colin's wife is gorgeous!
FYI to whoever mentioned Demi Moore. Years and years ago I was working at Trolley Square in SLC in a jewelery store that sold fake gems. She came in with her girls and Bruce stayed outside the door. Two things you should know: One, Bruce is HOT. Much hotter than he appears in, well anything really. Two, Demi has had a LOT of work done. Yes, she is the size of a small, malnourished child, but I was trying really had not to stare at the acne scars. She was a mess. Makeup is her best friend.
Oh, and yes, she did buy a whole bunch of fake gems and paid for them with her Planet Hollywood credit card. My one brush with fame.
