Network television did not receive a lot of nominations this year. This may be the time for television to reevaluate the future shows. 

The big film snub is Mary Poppins for the best original song. This was expected to top the nomination. Paddington film did not receive one nomination. Ryan Gosling’s performance in First Man was not recognized with a nomination for best actor. First Man left out of best director and best drama.

The theme for the evening was one that brought creativity and exceptional fashion. The costume exhibit this season examines how fashion designers have been influenced by Catholic aesthetics. The theme went from religious influences in fashion to focus on Catholicism. This was adjusted when the curator decided that focusing on religious influences was too much for one show. The Catholic church not unhappy with the art collection and has donated pieces for the art show. The annual show at the museum dictates the theme and dress code for the evening.

The celebrities hit the red carpet with great creations of fashion, style, and makeup. Versace was popular fashion. Donatella Versace wore a design of her own that is sexy and gorgeous in a beautiful ornately embroidered coat and dress navy and gold boots. This was perfect for the evening. Her boots were fabulous. There were many celebrities wearing Versace at the Met Gala. This is appropriate because the fashion house being in Italy and often includes catholic religion in their fashion. The celebrities wearing Versace include:

  • Kim Kardashian in a full-length gold gown with a gold cross on the front.

Wolfgang Puck’s Oscars’® Governors Ball Recipe ~ Chicken Pot Pie

Create Chicken Pot Pie just like the celebrities enjoy at Oscar’s® night. There is planning the menu, shopping, and creating all the wonderful dishes. Wolfgang Puck, catering service for the 90th Oscars® is busy as well preparing the food for the Governors Ball.

Puck a renowned Chef and works with CEO Carl Schuster, they continue to set the standard for culinary excellence at the Governors Ball. He revolutionizes the dining landscape with a singular focus: to exceed expectations when our guests gather for a meal. This year is no different for the event of the year, The Academy Awards®. He is staying true to using fish and seafood that is Watch compliant and locally sourced ingredients. They are coming from:

This year’s menu includes his famous Chicken Pot Pie. This will include 1,000 pounds Pasturebird chicken and 100 pounds carrots to feed the hungry celebrities. This is a simple recipe that will be a dish that is easy to create and serve individually.

CHICKEN POT PIE

(recipe courtesy Wolfgang Puck, adapted from “Wolfgang Puck Makes it Easy,” Rutledge Hill Press, 2004)

Yield: Serves 4

2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken, cut into 1-inch chunks

Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

4 tablespoons vegetable oil

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided

1/2 pound organic red-skinned potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

1/2 pound organic carrots, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces

1 medium yellow onion, peeled and diced

2 garlic cloves, minced

Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes

1 sprig thyme

1 bay leaf

1 cup white wine

2 cups organic chicken stock

1 cup plus 1 tablespoon heavy cream

1/4 cup dry sherry

1/2 cup shelled or frozen peas

Approximately 1/2 pound frozen puff pastry, defrosted following package instructions

1 cage-free egg

Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper, and toss in a mixing bowl with 2 tablespoons of

the flour until evenly coated. In a large skillet over high heat, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil. Add

the chicken pieces, reduce the heat slightly, and sauté, turning them occasionally, until light

golden and thoroughly cooked, about 5 to 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the

chicken to a plate and set aside. Add the remaining oil and 2 tablespoons of the butter to the pan,

then add the potatoes, carrots, and onions and sauté until they begin to look glossy and bright, 2

to 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium, stir in the garlic, red pepper flakes, thyme, and bay

leaf, and sauté, just until the vegetables begin to color slightly, 2 to 3 minutes more.

Add the wine, turn up the heat, stir and scrape with a wooden spoon to deglaze the pan deposits,

and simmer until the liquid reduces by about half, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the chicken stock and the

1 cup of cream. Bring the liquid to a boil, reduce the heat slightly, and simmer briskly until the

liquid reduces by about half again and is thick and creamy about 15 minutes. Remove the sprig

of thyme and the bay leaf. Stir in the reserved chicken pieces and the sherry. Stir together the butter

and remaining flour and stir this paste into the mixture. Season the sauce to taste with salt and pepper.

Transfer to 4 large individual ovenproof 2-cup soup bowls, 4 ramekins of the same size, or a 2-quart baking

dish. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until the filling is cold, at least 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Make sure the puff pastry is no thicker than 1/4 inch. With

the tip of a sharp knife cut the pastry into 4 circles that will overhang the rim of the serving

bowls or ramekins by about half an inch; for a single large baking dish, cut 4 circles that will

cover its top, or use one large sheet.

In a small bowl, beat together the egg and the remaining 1 tablespoon cream to make an egg

wash. Brush the tops and outsides of the rims of the bowls. Place the bowls, ramekins, or

baking dish on a baking tray and place the puff pastry circles on top, pressing them gently over

the sides of the dishes. Pierce the tops with the tip of a paring knife. Brush the top of the pastry

with egg wash. Carefully transfer the baking sheet to the oven and bake until the filling is

bubbling hot and the pastry is a deep golden brown, 25 to 35 minutes. Serve hot.

Serve with this great non-alcoholic drink. The inspiration is every great hero needs a faithful sidekick. The drink offers a thoughtful combination of the vibrant hibiscus, fresh citrus and effervescent tonic complemented by an elegant garnish.

Solidarity On The Red Carpet ~ Golden Globes

Solidarity On The Red Carpet ~ Golden Globes

75th Annual Golden Globes red carpet show a sign of solidarity with a void of color for many celebrities in attendance. Many choose to wear all black in a silent voice against sexual harassment and supporting “TIME’S UP,  a unified call for change from women in entertainment for women everywhere.”

This group addresses the inequality and injustice in workplaces for underrepresented groups reaching their full potential. The celebrities wore black as the key to their fashion and styling choices. Many adorned with an accessory pin from the organization.

The red carpet became a real black tie affair.  The black theme did not mean a void of personal style. Many celebrities choose textures, trims, makeup, and jewels to carry out their styling.  Jessica Biel wore a beautiful haute couture Dior gown with a half-moon over a tulle draping with a soft romantic pink slightly showing through.

The ceremony continued the theme with speeches including Oprah’s acceptance of the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement.  She offers encouragement for the future by stating, ” it will be because of a lot of magnificent women, many of whom are right here in this room tonight, and some pretty phenomenal men, fighting hard to make sure that they become the leaders who take us to the time when nobody ever has to say ‘Me too’ again.” Oprah brought many to tears with her speech supporting the night’s voice against sexual harassment.

Barabara Meirer states, “A lot of women will wear black tonight to support the Time‘s Up movement. I think this is a great and extremely important initiative! Nevertheless, I decided to wear a colorful dress tonight,” she wrote. “If we want this to be the Golden Globes of the strong women who stand up for their rights, I think, it’s the wrong way not to wear any sexy clothes anymore or let people take away our joy of showing our personality through fashion.” Fashion made a statement this evening and for generations to come. Support was felt in fashion, speeches, and pins throughout the evening. See the full evening photos here.
