I am a little slow this morning from a night that included the Vanity Fair party and ended very late at the Madonna/Demi Moore soiree. It was a BLAST of a night. I didn't get invited to blog, so I can't really say much. About VF I will tell you that there was a moment where we were talking to Zac Efron at the bar and the Jonas brothers were walking in and little Tay-Tay Lautner was not far behind, so it felt very teen dreamy. And that Oprah and Gaga (in a red veil) were at the late-night party (not together), Diddy was djing, and Madonna's dancers had a spectacular dance-off.It was a great weekend in L.A., hanging with friends basking in pre-Oscar festivities. We saw every big movie star on Friday night and met Evan Lysacek, who is very charming and adorable. We also talked to Sam Worthington who is as hot as Na'vi. On Saturday afternoon I had the pleasure of meeting a young lad named Brooklyn Beckham, spawn of Victoria and David. (Why is that funny to me?)At various points in the weekend I ran into Rachel Zoe and Rodger, handsome Brad Goreski (who affirmed my choice of tux shirt), and the gorgeous Gail Simmons.Regarding the show last night...* Love Mo'Nique* Kristen Stewart needs to get her agent to buy her a sense of humor.* Loved the John Hughes tribute.* I don't get why Miley is all over the Oscars but there's no time for Lauren Bacall to speak?* I love me some SJP. Also thought Kate Winslet, JLo, Demi looked incredible.* While I enjoyed the tributes to Best Actor and Actress nominees, it kinda felt like they were talking about Nobel Prize honorees or something. Kinda keepts that stereotype going of Hollywood as a self-congratulatory hot air machine.OK I am running for a plane home this morning. More tomorrow. In the meantime, watch a brand new Kell on Earth tonight!

Sounds like you had a fun time, Andy! Happy to hear it. I'd like to offer a different perspective on the Best Actors and Actresses receiving kudos from long-ago (or recent) co-stars. We RARELY hear actors talking about each other's work and/or as a person these days. Maybe long ago on Entertainment Tonight, we were more likely to hear about it. But now, with TMZ, Access Hollywood, The Insider, perezhilton.com, US Magazine Weekly, etc. most of what we're fed is about non-entities like Jon&Kate, Paris Hilton, Heidi Montag, Miley Cyrus, The Bachelor/Bachelorette and so forth. I think a lot of us find it interesting what Julianne Moore thinks of Colin Firth, or what it was like for Tim Robbins to work with Morgan Freeman on Shawshank, or how much Michelle Pfeiffer respects Jeff Bridges. The Oscars only happen once a year; it doesn't seem like being overly-congratulatory to me.
I agree with Kristen Stewart, she always has a scowl, but, on the red carpet, the paps were trying to get her to smile, and when she did, she was pretty, maybe the scowl is her branding of herself? IDK
Miley, yeah why was she there? SJP's dress was beautiful, but, what about Sandra Bullock she looked glamorous, like an Oscar winner, and her hubby w/a tear in his eye, so glad she won.
Glad you have a good weekend, now bring on the OC reunion!
How about having Wendy Williams back to talk about all the stupid arguments the various housewives get into and make her smart comments about how they should have behaved. Is it true that most of them don't know better or is it just for TV? It could be a special...Wendy Williams Talks (Sense).
Hey Andy, Which dress did you like best and why? My favorites were Sandra Bullock & SJP!
I saw on Twitter that the Salahes were at the event! I know you probably saw them? What was she wearing? What did your latest DC Housewife do to get invited? Did you talk to them? Is the DC Show coming on back to back like OC & NY did?
Come on Andy --- dont hold back boo! We got summer to start planning with the family, and I need details on the schedule!
Could someone tell Miley to stop slouching? and her speaking voice is like a pack-a-day barfly. I understand the no Farrah, she (and Bea Arthur) were more TV than movies, but why michael jackson?? one movie - the wiz. and why Demi Moore intro? what had she "done" lately besides tweet?
I am exhausted by the end of awards season, it was particularly gnarly this year - I had the honor of seeing you two times last night - but didn't have the nerve to approach. But I do have to say, Zac Efron has the best hair in the world don't you think?
