Welcome to the 2014 Academy Awards!!!
First we have the pre show and red carpet.
Some of the members filling out their ballots …
A quick shot of the craft services.
Some blah blah blah…
A rabid fan that sat beside me and coughed up some old carrot on my designer gown.
How did she get in?
Grainy twitter celebrity selfie
And finally without further adieu…
17 hours later…
a grand winner is announced!
Thank you! thank you! thank you!
A quick change of clothes on my way to the podium and…
I'd like to thank the members of the academy…
my ability to speed change outfits, and talk incessantly about nothing
of course all those above that helped me achieve this amazing plastic cup and a full bottle of Moet for my greedy little self.
I'd like to thank Hazel Borg, for her graciousness in hosting the event.
Without her none of this would have been possible ( cause we don't have cable ).
The sexy barman for his wicked skills slow pouring the champagne down the side of the flute.
Pour me another like that baby and I'll be taking you home with me tonight!
The brilliant caterers.
Two types of gourmet popcorn, spiced seaweed & mucho caliente
Gourmet homemade bits and bites.
"You like me! You really like me!" Lemon coconut tartlet.
Brandied dark chocolate truffles
And of course to the real reason I'm up here…a huge thank you goes out to the one being that truly knows me,
my someone to feed, my someone waiting at the door for me, and my someone to chase…
my pug Zoe!
lookin' sly girlfriend!
A HUGE thank you to everyone tonight!
I love you all! (wiping away tears)
Now if you'll excuse me,
I'm taking my Oscar and heading out to the after party…
I said no photos!
Get these losers out of here!
I can't afford to have someone see me with the barman!
Now tell me honestly…
do you think I went overboard with my speech?
Linking up with the beautiful Bella at Secondhand First as my vintage gown is an estate sale find and Tres Chic Style Bits.
I love this! So good to see you from a different angle, you are bloody gorgeous, woman!
You, Hazel and that handsome man of yours run rings around those dull old celebs and I love your dress.
Spiced seaweed sounds incredible and I want to steal the puggles. xxx
hahaha!! It looks like you guys may have had just a little bit of fun with your Oscars party…
This is brilliant! Good to see you having fun while looking so stunning! Ooh, that barman of yours is rather dishy, and Hazel is gorgeous, what a fabulous evening! Great to see that amazing dress again, you are red carpet ready, Suzanne! xxx

Bella Q says
Best oscar fashion post ever! You look amazing – that dress is incredible and the whole evening looks like so much fun. Your speech had me in tears….of happiness. Congrats on the win- can’t wait to see you star with Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett in the sequel!
You look gorgeous and what a fun party. Look like some tasty snacks and you have one great looking husband!

Sue @ A Colourful Canvas says
GAK!!!! You totally made my day! You’ve certainly brought the fun that can be found in blogging to the table, or podium in this case, today! Well done!!!
That is a beautiful dress and such wonderful photos! Your husband and Pug dog are perfect accessories!
Thanks for sharing,
sandra @ Peaches Mcginty says
I love this!! best Oscar’s ever! you all looked gorgeous, and quite right it’s the blooming Oscar’s! Zoe is just the cutest Pug and your speech made me a little misty *wipes eye,sniff* x x x
You are so funny! I love this. I was in jeans in a sweatshirt. Just saying…
Debbie Stinedurf says
OMG! Stop it! You’re kill me…and the pic of Zoe is to die for.
Heather Lindstrom says
Party Hardy is right!! This is hysterical…I loved every moment! You’ll have to let us know how things turned out with your hot barman! Super fun post!!
Happiness at Mid Life says
You weren’t kidding when you said you throw a great Oscar party!!! I love this post and it looks like you had so much fun!
Can I come next year?
Val @ Muse Fondue says
I feel like I was there! Except I thought they all had pizza instead of popcorn. Oh, well, maybe Ellen got pizza for the losers.
You look gorgeous, and it’s so fun seeing you in all these paparazzi pics!
Gnome Lover says
You look hot! Your husband is a cutie. It is so nice to see such a fun night and everyone dressed so beautifully. Congratulations on your win. You deserved it!
And your pug. And that hoodie. She stole the show!
Jill James says
Wonderful party, you look stunning in that amazing dress. You could definately give our Cate a run for her money. ( I am an Aussie). Your pug is just so cute.
No Fear of Fashion says
Hahaha.. This was so funny. Thorougly enjoyed your madness. No you did not go overboard with the speech. And I would have taken the barman home as well. Those eyelashes… You melt when he smiles at you. What a catch.
Luckily Zoe is not jealous of him..
Yeah…I didn’t do too badly ; )
We are normally in PJs but not this year : )
Let’s just say he kept me topped up all evening ; )
Come come! Don’t forget your fancy gown.
Yep…it was loser pizza for sure. Besides…do I really want to eat pizza that Brad Pitt and Bradley Cooper have touched?
Oh you KNOW I deserved it. I’m the reigning champion 2 years in a row! Although my girlfriend told me she is “taking me down” next year. Ha ha. We’ll see….we’ll see…
Well I think my husband might be a bit jealous of Zoe! LOL
She looks like a little Rocky right? LOL
This is great!!! I’ve always wanted to throw an Oscar Party (just to have a reason to wear a dress like yours), now you’ve shown me just how much fun one can be. Tell, you what, I’ll remember to send you the boots if you remember to send me the dress. By the way, you two are one incredibly gorgeous couple.
No Fear of Fashion says
As I am of our dog. My husband sings all day changing the words of every song into “monkey” or “Charlie”, both referring to our dog.
dog is on his lap every morning. etc etc. Ron wil never admit it (he is smarter than that), but I fear the dog is number one.
ha ha! I think Ron and I have quite a bit in common ; )
Looks like you had such a nice and funny party 🙂
You look stunning in your gorgeous dress, Pug is sooooo cute and you and your husband are just a perfect couple.
You made me have a fun time with this post.
Thank you so much for the comment on my blog and for linking with Très Chic Style Bits.
Hahaha…brilliant party and post, dear Oscarette! (Tho Zoe did look a bit too casual for the occasion maybe??? Cute, nevertheless;-).)
And you humans just look stunning, really!
I will pass on the seaweed popcorn, but will make up for that with some extra bubbly, please!
All I can say is that this parallel Oscar eve was so much better then the official one.
Sarah Blodgett says
Looks like such a great time!! Gowns, popcorn.. who could ask for anything more!!
