Unexpected winner (at least in my opinion, but then again, so was The King’s Speech, pretty surprising winner) at the 2011 Oscars, Melissa Leo won the Academy Award for her Performance in a Supporting Role (The Fighter – which was already rewarded for Christian Bale’s Performance in a Supporting Role).
She also was the golden ticket for designer Marc Bouwer whose beige and gold dress was on Melissa tonight. Part of the Fall 2011 collection, the dress fitted the general hues styling coordinates and was a good choice for Melissa Leo, complimenting her skin tone and hair color. Who was your favorite tonight? (more images right after the jump, click here for the gallery!) (photos via 1, 2)
The King’s Speech win didn’t surprise me at all but this was a real and also nice surprise. As it was to her. Melissa was flabbergasted and that wasn’t acting….fun to watch….:)
We didn’t really like the dress but it looked good on her and that’s fine too.
Faves: Natalie Portman and Nicole Kidman, Amy Adams, Scarlett Johansson and the wonderful Marisa Tomei!
Poor happy woman was so shocked she used the F-word par coincidence. We weren’t that shocked. That happens sometimes right? We’re only human…..:)
Her speech was obnoxious & showed how graceless she was in winning. I thought she was a terrible winner all round. Fashion wise she looks like a doily!
When I read today that the King’s Speech won, that was not a surprise at all it was touted to win.
I have never heard of this actor, and she looks presentable, not a favourite dress for me. As for her swearing during her speech, that only happens if the words used are a part of your everyday vocabulary.
…Definitely not one of the cool kids!
I use the word too at times. It was not censored here on tv since it was live from the US and we had no 7 seconds delay. We laughed just like the audience did because it was obvious the woman was shocked. They all laughed! Or at least most of them. Like McDonald another second popular word work wide used is the f-word.
Christian Bale did a great speech but we also know that he can go mad more worse than using the f-word. Great actor though and it’s a great movie too.
What I don’t like is this. I read somewhere and have no clue where it was anymore that Reese Whiterspoon wore a “poor man’s” Valentino or something like that. The only wrong thing about ‘a poor man’ is that he has not enough or no money at all to live a decent life. That’s all. And alas there too many people who are poor.
*correction:* “Like McDonald another second popular word world wide used is the f-word.”
I don’t write this as an excuse. Not at all. It just sound different in foreign ears I guess and I’ve heard it used in the UK and Ireland by so many different people.
There is nothing wrong with the f word. My friends & I laugh all the time about using it as our heritage! (Being British & all).
But my problem is that there was an agenda with her speech & that is to get publicity. Melissa acted all shocked but she said it on purpose. But kudos to her – it worked!
I have not (yet) seen The Fighter and I still am curious about her acting. But fashion wise – she wasn’t one of the tops, that’s true, but her choice, even though it’s in trends, is not too stylish or high class. But she was so genuinely surprised and emotional, it was a pleasure to watch.
Authentically emotional people, especially during ceremonies like this one, are so rare! That’s one of the reasons I like watching the awards for sound editing, special effects or other such categories. Those are the people that are not used to being in the spotlight or talking to a world wide audience.
Kpriss, you make me smile girl. :)
We were pleasantly surprised by her speech and seconds earlier how shocked she looked when her name was announced. That was priceless, no acting there, heartfelt honestly surprised. I really thought likewise Oscar’s the little girl from True Grit should win!
Plus I love these prices you mention in the second paragraph what would movies be without these people who do their great work in these categories? Or a category like documentaries. I love to watch good documentary, they’re informative and/or have an important message. :)
Okay, i FRIGGIN LOVED her dress (Melissa Leo’s Mark Bouwer dress) anyone know where i could buy it?
