This post is supposed to be about giving the gents some fashion love after three articles of women’s Oscar fashion, but I’m distracted right now by the fact that Jeff Bridges just won an Oscar. I think his win may be the only time I’ve ever actually cheered out loud for one of these awards ceremonies like I was watching a sporting event.
On to the fashion crap.
Pretty much every man ever wears the same thing to the Oscars- black tuxedo with some variation of tie and shoes. There’s not a lot to see there. Robert Downey Jr. took a slight break from the standard by pairing his with sneakers, a blue bowtie and some shades. Eli Roth had smugness for an accessory that translated into some hilarious red carpet photographs, and George Clooney’s best accessory was the gorgeous brunette whom he joked couldn’t speak English.
But who really cares about all that? Jeff Bridges is a freakin Academy Award winner! Less than one minute after the win, someone has already updated his Wikipedia entry. Since I can’t do that, here are some celebratory tweets by clever people:
@Squirrellqueen : That Oscar will really tie the room together.
@thats_so_april : If Jeff Bridges doesn’t remind you of your dad just a little bit then, well, sorry about your dad.
@leolaporte : Sometimes you eat the bar, and sometimes you win an Oscar.
@rilaws : When Jeff Bridges opens his mouth, po’ boys and jars of beer come tumbling out.
