Academy Awards ~ Winners, Fun, & Fashion

Academy Awards ~ Winners, Fun, & Fashion

Academy Awards brings back the red carpet and the award show in person. The night is filled with winners, fun, and fashion. This is different and strange from the traditional Oscars®. The locations is at Union Station not the Dolby Theatre and only 200 guests in appearance.

Academy Award Red Carpet

The men rocked this red carpet this year. Many took the traditional black tux but some took a non-tradtional look with colorful suits including one set of nominees wearing similar gold and black suits.

There is a lot of large puffy sleeves on the red carpet fashion. This is such a joyous time after a year of very little fashion shows and red carpet. The looks are personal and styled for a dramatic look. This was a great time to get dressed up in glam after a year of leisure wear and masks. Yeah for the lipstick, missed seeing lipstick this last year.

The Oscars® this year was a bit off and different from tradition. The times have changes and shifted since COVID-19. Film was an industry struck down but The Academy Awards took on the challenge and created an event that was elegant and entertaining in a time where it is much needed. My favorite films this year was The Octopus Teacher and The United States vs. Billie Holiday. What was your favorite film from the last year? Post your answer here.

CHICKEN POT PIE Wolfgang Oscars 4Chion Lifestyle

Chicken Pot Pie

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

Yield: Serves 4

Ingredients

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

Ingredients

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. sing 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.

Red Carpet Makeup Artsit

Well hello once again beauties, the pleasure is all mine. I’m so happy to give you another one of my reviews for the products I used and Love for The Oscars®.

Get super excited queens and add some brow, glow, contour, and an all day red lip with that excitement, this that is what this year’s Oscars® we’re all about.

I think the most beautiful look sometimes is a simple eye, contour, and bronze highlight with a stronger brow. Oh yes, ladies we can’t forget the lashes. I use Lilly Lashes on my clients, favorite ever.

@nini_4_u Supermodel and @weareroyals , queen. Jewelry by he amazing @loveandbones.ca

Steps to that Oscar® red carpet look make-up:

Red Carpet Skin Care

1. Prep skin with moisturizer and eye cream

2. Primer

Red Carpet Foundation Makeup Tips

3. I always apply L’Oreal Paris Makeup True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer Highlighting all over the face. Today I used color 904, deep bronze. This brings life, glow, and a sun-kissed gitz and glam look.

4. Foundation makes sure that it is dewy and hydrating. Stay away from the matte look and powder. This look causes an aging affect. Hollywood beauties do not like aged skin.

Red Conturing and Highlighter Makeup Tips

5. Go straight to the amazing Cover Fx Monochromatic Bronzer. Two steps because at the Oscars Time is of the essence. Use the bronzer as a contour I love this color it’s very warm and looks good on all skin tones.

a. Angle brush applying under the cheekbones building slowly as desired.

b. Blend the hairline upwards as well.

c. Make sure to blend around the edges around your chin. Bam perfection.

6. Use the highlighter and when applying from temple and right above cheekbone. Not to close to the eyes. This is that simple yes, but pure elegance.

7. Take a little of the highlighter use it as a highlighter under the brow and sweep softly across lid and call it a red carpet look.

My Favorites  I used for The Red Carpet . Must haves.
Red Carpet Lip Color Makeup Tips

8. Red lip. Loving once again all of our favorites as artists for the awards. L’Oréal Paris Makeup Rouge Signature Matte Lip Stain has a superb texture and the color is so universal.

a. Skip the liner.

b. Use the awesome applicator tip as your guide to line the lip color then color in the rest of the lip. You can call it a red carpet lip.

Red Carpet Brows and Eyeshadow Makeup Tips

8. Keep your brows strong but soft. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow definer is my favorite to use on clients that do not have much hair. Go the opposite direction In light feathery strokes. It’s easier to see the technique I use then to explain it. There taupe color is so beautiful for many.

9. Check your shade; make sure you match your own brow hair.

10. Then last but not least, the most important. Those lashes. They complete the whole glitz and glam red carpet look.

Best Picture Green Book Oscars®

Best Picture Green Book Oscars®

Best Picture

The Best Picture at the 91st Oscars® is Green Book. This story brings forward the fact that we need to sit down and discuss racism in a safe environment.

Green Book Producers

Jim Burke is a producer and actor, known for Green Book (2018), The Descendants(2011) and Election (1999). This film took many puns and knocks during production. Burke responds to this time, “I’ll just say, yes, it was discouraging; but we always went back to the film.  And when we had a bad day, we’d pop in the movie, and we were reminded that we’re all really proud of this film, all of us and all of the over 500 people who helped make it.”

Peter Farrell is a producer and writer, known for Green Book (2018), There’s Something About Mary (1998) and Dumb and Dumber (1994). Farrell talks about his approach to winning, “It’s like if I watch a football game and I need my team to score, I just leave the room, and they will.  If I’m watching them, they won’t.  So I just kind of thought about everything but winning this thing, and it worked.”

Charles B. Wessler is known for his work on There’s Something About Mary (1998), Dumb and Dumber (1994) and It’s Pat: The Movie (1994). Wessler talks about the moment Julia Roberts (he did forget her name) announced Green Book for Best Picture, “I just want to say one thing.  These guys may or may not agree with me, but when I’m forgetting the name of the actress who gave us the award.  I don’t know why.”
Burke states, “Julia Roberts.”
Wessler continues, “Julia Roberts. She opened up thank you.  She opened up the thing, and I’m not kidding, I started to talk to my friend sitting next to me; and she said GREEN BOOK, and I so just to let you know, were we thinking we could win?  I kind of forgot that we could, and, you know.” 

Film Synopsis

The title and subject matter are a reference to “The Negro Motorist Green Book,” also known as “The Negro Travelers’ Green Book.” Published from 1936-1966, the guide helped African-American travelers find lodging, restaurants, and other businesses that would serve them. It eventually covered most of North America, plus Bermuda and the Caribbean. (IMDB)

Film Fun Facts

The real Tony Lip is best known for playing Carmine Lupertazzi on The Sopranos.

The film is dedicated to “Larry the Crow,” a bird that hung around the shooting location. Viggo Mortensen cared for the animal after it was hit by a car.

The film is about “Tony Lip” Viggo Mortensen and Dr. Don Shirley’s relationship and how they changed each other in a time when it was crazy, obviously.

Regina King Supporting Actress

Regina King Supporting Actress

This film is a celebration of love and a reminder of the struggles facing many African American women in this country. Regina King envelopes this struggle and love to win the Oscar® for Best Supporting Actress.

Actress in a Supporting Role

Regina King brings her mother to the Oscars®. She says about her mother being there, “I feel like kind of like one of those full circle moments because so much of the character Sharon Rivers was mapped or inspired by my mother and my grandmother.” She gets teary-eyed as she reflects and says thanks to these women.

She goes on to say, ” James Baldwin birthed this baby and Barry, you nurtured her, you surrounded her with so much love and support, so it’s appropriate for me to be standing here because I’m an example of what it looks like when support and love is poured into someone.” That is truly was. She is wearing an Oscar® winning Oscar De La Renta white gown.

This film is important in the narrative that there remains a divide in this country. We have moved forward and backward throughout the 400 years since the first slave being brought to this country. King states about winning, “But it’s just a reminder of when Hattie McDaniel won.  She didn’t win just because black people voted for her.  She won because she gave an amazing performance.”

King did present a strong woman fighting for her family and her dreams. Kings said about working on the film, “When you have men and women working together, pretty amazing things happen.”

She continues with, “I feel like I’ve had so many women that have paved the way, are paving the way, and I feel like I walk in their light, and I also am creating my own light.”

Film Synopsis

A woman in Harlem embraces her pregnancy while she and her family struggle to prove her fiancé innocent of a crime. (IMdB)

Film Facts

The film’s release date was the novelist James Baldwin’s 94th birthday.

Beale Street is in Memphis not New Orleans.

The author is director’s Barry Jenkins favorite.

NYU!” This is a long time in coming for Spike Lee. The screenplay writers include David Rabinowitz, Charles Wachtel, and Kevin Willmott.

Lee concludes the acceptance speech saying, “Let’s all be on the right side of history. Make the moral choice between love versus hate. Let’s do the right thing! You know I had to get that in there!”
