academy awards 2010


So I've been terribly remiss in posting recently, but I simply couldn't miss this! I'm a total sap, it's one of my absolute favorite nights of the year, even if this time I had to watch alone, lying in bed at 2am, falling asleep. Ah well.

My hands-down favorite of the evening was Cameron Diaz, I thought she looked like perfect Hollywood glamour: wavy hair, sparkle, red lips, smile. No ribs popping out of her chest! To me, seeing her in the dress reminded me of why we girls like getting dressed up in the first place. Gown is by Oscar de la Renta, jewels by Cartier.



I thought Meryl looked fantastic, on a big night even though she didn't win, as it marked her being the most-nominated actress ever. I thought she looked statuesque and gorgeous and happy in this white dress, and I was very pleased to read that it was by Chris March from Project Runway; a designer that I always liked work- and personality-wise, and it's nice to see that they do get good work after the show is over!

Sandra Bullock was the big win of the evening (isn't Best Actress the award people really care about, or at least remember afterwards??) and she seemed to have a sense of this beforehand, as Julia Roberts did years back with that vintage Valentino -- because she looks classic and beautiful in sparkling Marchesa. A little safe perhaps, but you never want to go into the history books in a "miss".


I always think Penelope chooses well, the gowns always suit her body and give enough drama without being too risky; I always enjoy what she wears. And I was again pleased with Carey Mulligan; she's become quite an aficionada of Prada but I love the mix of textures on the thick fabric and quirky little appliques, so I think it was just original enough.


A lovely night for Tom Ford -- I saw his film and absolutely loved it, and from his interviews on the red carpet you could tell just how proud and enthusiastic he was, which is a sincerity I really appreciate in Hollywood! I thought Robert Downey Jr was one of the best-dressed men, even if (or because??) he looks a bit goofy here, and with his sneakers and bow tie. He was having fun with it, which should be the point afterall, without making fun of the whole thing. And doesn't his wife look fantastic?? Much better dressed than a lot of the actresses in my opinion!


I liked Tina Fey's dress if not her hair-do, it's Michael Kors and though she's almost always in black or navy she's getting a little more adventurous with her outfits which is nice to see. I love Miley's dress, but was unsure of whether to post it because I think she's a little too young to really do it justice. But whoever her stylist is, well done!

PART 1

YOU ARE 100% CORRECT IN WHAT YOU SAY BUT THERE IS MORE.....

You see, Bush Sr., & Jr., Clinton, Regan, Carter, Obama, Ford...ALL these presidents are in what is dubbed a SECRET SOCIETY called The Moloch Axis Demoniacs (i coined the phrase myself...Dr. A.P. and i don't use my full name because WHO knows WHAT sinister crap they'd do to me IF they found out?) or M.A.D. for short.

These people, and there’s obviously more of them (Cheney, Rumsfeld etc.) than the ones mentioned, control KEY positions not just in government, business, society etc. They are GRADUALLY erroding MORAL/FAMILY VALUES in society. SO gradual that it's like hairloss! You see it ever so slowly and you have to be a keen eye to boot!

For example, women in the workforce...they go to work so WHO takes care of the kids? Some goofs getting minimum wage who could care less about those kids. Family split apart because NOW both parents work and the cost of life itself purposely increased to perpetuate this separation. Kids grow up with NO moral/family values. Repeat this a few generations and before you know it, you have mindless zombies that don't know RIGHT from WRONG! Easily programmable to get in debt, be anti-christ-like etc.

Also, the coming mark of the beast 666. Remember HOW it all used to be ca$h only? Then they introduced checks, then credit cards to get yourself in serious financial troubles, then ATM cards, and now that STUPID SWIPE-PASS card. What is the purpose of all this? To get people broken down enough and stupid enough through putting FLUORIDE in the drinking water and ASPERTAME in soda drinks/pop cans so we ALL can accept the 666 chip. So NOBODY can buy or sell or own ANYTHING lest he has the mark of the beast (anti-christ) which is 666.

I can go on for days & days as to the subtleties and more examples but i think you all SEE the points i make here. It's all SUBTLE and GRADUAL negative changes day in & day out that these M.A.D. demons (because they are demonic and have placed their trust in demons in exchange for their souls and material possessions here on earth) are passing into laws in Canada, USA, UK, SPAIN, FRANCE etc.

Pedro Garcia Millan said...

ALL these clowns should retire and the USA should get to the business of EXPOSING the demonic activities of the Moloch Axis Demoniacs (MAD) that hold key government & Social positions passing laws that break-down society gradually like hairloss instead of being distracted with the unglamourous idiots from Hollywood....
