We arrived to the theater right on time and I really enjoyed the ceremony. I thought Seth McFarlane was a great host, balancing humor and sincerity. Of course I loved his skit with Sally Field as my husband co-starred with her in The Flying Nun.
And what a treat to see Shirley Bassey perform Goldfinger! I thought all of the live musical and dancing numbers were incredible, nobody is better than Barbara Streisand. The memorial segment was especially well done.
A special congratulations to the director Don Mischer. My favorite chef Wolfgang provided the best dinner and hors d’oeuvres before the show. After the Oscars, we then attended the Governor’s Ball. I was thrilled that the Academy Awards were sponsored by Coldwell Banker.
My favorite quote of the night: “It doesn’t matter how you get knocked down in life, because that’s gonna happen. All that matters is that you gotta get up.” – Ben Affleck
