Oscars 2016

88th Oscars on February 28, 2016 in Hollywood, California

“It’s so nice to be here. I’m so inappropriately dressed, though, because last year it rained and I was worried it would rain again so I wore velvet and now I’m sweating like a fiend.”...The star, who is expecting his first child later this year, said: “It’s so exciting and mildly terrifying but my brother (James) in Hong Kong just had a baby girl about two hours ago so there is a new Redmayne in the world.” (x)

I liked the clip they chose for Eddie, he was fabulous in this scene...
(Lili gets her coat and Gerda’s wool wrap. But as Lili heads for the door)
LILI (cont’d) You know sometimes I wonder why you let me go through all this 
if you thought everything would be the same afterwards. 
(Gerda’s wrongfooted...)
GERDA I didn’t. But I promised Einar I’d take care of you. 
LILI For goodness’ sake, Gerda - Einar is dead. We both have to accept that. 
You took care of me, now I have to take care of myself. I have to have a life of my own. And you need to do the same.
(Lili calls the dog, heads for the door, and is gone.
Gerda is left alone to process this exchange...) (x)(x)

The Charles Finch and Chanel’s eighth annual pre-Oscar dinner was at Madeo on Saturday, February 27th. 
Peggy Siegal reported in her Oscars 2016 diary: "... Brie Larson seated next to Eddie Redmayne, who would 
be handing her the Oscar Sunday night in a custom-made Alexander McQueen tuxedo. (The original suit, 
stuck in L.A. customs, had to be copied by a team of tailors waiting in his room for a midnight fitting.)

Eddie won the Worst Supporting Actor Award for Jupiter Ascending - Winners here
Sad, that there are so many people who cannot recognize a stellar performance and consider it bad.
Eddie’s transformation was magnificent as usual.
