One thought on “Oscar-palooza, Vol. 2”
This was so fun to read/view! I forgot how much I loved Julia Roberts speech for Erin Brokovich, and Jennifer Lawrence when Jack popped in! I remember seeing Tom Hanks talk about meeting Sophia Lauren on that night when Roberto won- he talked about turning into a complete mushball in the face of such beauty. And that dress…damn.
