Oscar Recap

I watched the Oscars last night. I’ll jump on the band wagon that’s saying host Ann Hathaway was blatantly over acting while her co-host James Franco looked stoned and clueless. But I enjoyed it nonetheless. I’m in it for the fancy dresses anyway.

I have one pet peeve I’d like to point out. Every single horrendous red carpet interviewer could not stop blabbing about Jennifer Hudson’s recent overhaul. There’s nothing more offensive to a “fat” girl turned slim than telling her she looks great NOW. She wasn’t a talented and beautiful artist BEFORE?

I won’t stay on my soapbox for long, but I would love it if people would change their tune on this one. Overweight individuals are almost always overweight for a specific reason: depression, health problems, etc. Everyone assumes they just overeat because they like cheeseburgers.

Although telling someone they look great is surely a nice compliment, no one ever thinks to encourage people to beat what made them overeat in the first place. So Jennifer, I may not be Ryan Seacrest, but congrats on being happy, and healthy, and caring about who you are.
