Superheroine of the Night: Naomi Watts

I know everybody wants Katee Sackhoff for Carol Danvers in the Captain Marvel movie they’re not making. I’d be good with Katee. Or Charlize. Or Yvonne. Or Diane. Or Evan. Or Naya. But now and forever I will campaign for Naomi.

Superheroine of the Night: Naomi Watts

Naomi is on a heroine chic tour this awards season. I got TEXTS (multiple!) about this entry:

The texters were correct, Naomi Watts is my superheroine of the night. And it’s a stunning dress, too:

Princess of the Night: Quvenzhané Wallis

So the Oscars happened. I dunno, I was bored. Though when I think about it, it’s usually boring? At least no one film swept everything… Those years are endless even when it’s a film I care about and possibly I didn’t care about the films this year, because I didn’t have time to see most of them, so. Also, I didn’t like McFarlane’s humor and the pacing was really weird and the “celebrate music in movies” thing came off more like “these are the people who agreed to show up and perform” — they’re stars, right? Who cares about cohesion. Also Bond films are totally all about the music, duh. I mean, YES, the credit songs are part of the formula but “let’s celebrate music in movies with a Bond retrospective” is NOT COHESIVE.

Anyway, other than Aaron Tveit (swooooon), the best part of the broadcast was Little Q:

She is a star. She is a superhero. She is royalty.

Superheroes at the Oscars: Rose Byrne

Hello heroine chic! Rose presented along with the other Bridesmaids and represented the entire cast of X-Men First Class. Okay that last bit only for those of us who care about superheroes at the Oscars, but still true. Her geek cred goes further back, however. A long time ago in a galaxy far far away Rose Byrne was:

Superheroes at the Oscars: Batmen

I know George Clooney doesn’t like to think about that time he played Batman. I know Bat-fandom, comic fans, cinephiles, and the general population don’t like to think about that time he played Batman. But you know. He did once play Batman.

He knows I’m talking about this and is trying to hurry Stacey on. George, you know she’s wearing ridiculous heels and her mobility is severely impaired by that gorgeous gold dress so you should be more of a gentleman and let go your evils of the Bat hang ups. I bet Stacey thinks it’s awesome you once played Bruce Wayne. She totally seems like a girl who’d like Batman.

Superheroes at the Oscars: Emma Stone

Tony and Pepper were flawless Sunday night, but there were a few other superheroes on the red carpet (not as many as last year, we failed to complete a Bingo). Maybe Gwen Stacey doesn’t count as a superhero?

But Emma Stone does.

Superheroine of the Night: Gwyneth Paltrow

It was not an Oscars for heroine chic. Watching E’s and then ABC’s Red Carpet, at 8PM I had but one passable contender for SotN and it was J-Lo. J-Lo! But then Gwyneth arrived and saved the night exactly as a fashion superheroine should:

With a cape.

Kryptonian? Themysciran? Alderaanian? Does it matter? Read the rest of this entry »
