The raindrops began falling just as the red carpet opened at the Kodak Theater, but nothing could put a damper on the fashion parade at the 82nd Annual Academy Awards.
From Mo'Nique in a fitted, royal blue dress—with a white gardenia affixed to her bun—to Zoe Saldana in beaded pink and lilac ruffles and Mariah Carey, in navy (and draped in bling, of course!) we couldn't seem to turn away from the Oscar pre-shows.
But now, we're feeling all misty and emotional as "Precious" scribe, Geoffrey Fletcher, has just nabbed his first Academy Award. What an amazing feat!
