The Academy Awards ceremony took place last night in Hollywood. It's hard to believe another year has gone by! Luckily for us, my blog intern Dizzie attended the ceremony, and is back with all of the exciting details.
Lilly Faye: Welcome home, Diz. You look different! What happened to your hair?
Mr. Frank: Yeah, you're looking a little frou-frou there, buddy.
Dizzie: I've been styled! My pal Chad from the television show Scandalous Hollywood Insiders Tonight phoned me on Friday and said his boss really liked the work I did for them at the Golden Globes. Chad asked if I'd come out to Hollywood, all expenses paid, to report on the Academy Awards. I said, heck yes!
Lilly Faye: How exciting! Where did they put you up? The Beverly Hills Hotel? The Chateau Marmont?
Dizzie: I slept on Chad's couch. I think it was Ikea. Anyway, his show's hair and makeup lady styled me for Oscar night. I think she was trying to make me look like Matisse. She watched the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on television last week, and saw Matisse win both the Portuguese Water Dog Best of Breed and Best of Working Group.
Lilly Faye: Well you look very fancy, Diz. It's going to take some getting used to. Now, tell us about the Oscars.
Dizzie: Neil Patrick Harris hosted the show. Unfortunately, most of his jokes were pretty lame. He probably didn't write them himself. He certainly seemed to be trying hard, but he should have listened to me and kept his pants on. I mean, there was Meryl sitting down front, keeping it classy as usual, and out comes Neil Patrick in his underwear.
Lilly Faye: I thought the acceptance speeches were interesting, and the musical performances were excellent. Lady Gaga surprised everyone by singing a Sound of Music medley to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the movie's release. Julie Andrews gave Gaga's performance her stamp of approval, and you can't do better than that.
Dizzie: I was dancing in the aisle while Tegan and Sara and The Lonely Island performed my favorite song, "Everything is Awesome."
Lilly Faye: John Legend and rapper Common received a standing ovation when they performed "Glory" from the movie Selma.
Dizzie: Right Boss. And now we know their real names are John Stephens and Lonnie Lynn. I wasn't sure who the announcer was talking about at first!
Lilly Faye: Do you have anything more for us, Diz?
Dizzie: I told Ellar Coltrane how much you loved Boyhood, Boss. And Frank, I showed Channing Tatum your Magic Frank XXL Valentine and he told me he has a couple of moves he can teach you.
Mr. Frank: Are you serious?
Lilly Faye: Woof!
Lilly Faye: Thanks for your report, Diz. I know our readers appreciate it.
And there you have it, folks. I hope some of your favorites took home an Oscar last night!
