Many of the women tonight are wearing boyish-styled haircuts. We're not quite sure what to make of it. Androgynous, to say the least.
Now, we're into a commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the film of The Sound of Music, the endearing (and enduring!) Broadway musical.
But, get this -- Lady Gaga comes on to interpret The Sound of Music! She covers the title song. She does a fine job of it. But what a shame we have to gaze upon her tattoos - especially the one with the peace sign, but that's the least of it. She's multi-tattooed and it just ain't pretty, folks. It's freaky! And freaky is just not a word we associate with The Sound of Music. God help us!
Oh, wait -- here's Julie Andrews. JULIE ANDREWS - to remind us of when Hollywood really WAS classy and when it really reinforced solid values. Julie is very polite and thoroughly professional.
Julie looks enchanting tonight. What a joy it is to see her again.
And, here's more good news: The Grand Budapest Hotel (one of our favorite films of the year) wins best original score and keeps its place as the winningest film tonight.
