The Oscars is like prom for the rich, famous and fabulous.

I imagine attending the Oscars is kind of like high school prom with a few slight differences:

  1. Everybody is famous.
  2. The gowns are not purchased from a bridal shop or mini mall.
  3. The after party doesn’t involve sweat pants and inflatable games in the high school gym.

You might be thinking that prom and the Oscars actually have nothing in common. But you’re wrong, and here’s why:

  1. There’s always at least one person in a super slutty dress. This year it was Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville.

    How was there NOT a wardrobe malfunction in this Real Housewives' Oscars look?

  2. Something terrible/cringeworthy/embarrassing happens to somebody.  This year it was Jennifer Lawrence taking a tumble.

    Jennifer Lawrence took a fall during her walk up to accept the Oscar for Best Actress. Lawrence recovered and started her acceptance speech by saying, "You guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell and that's really embarrassing but thank you."This is why we all love her.

  3. There’s always that person who you question if they even showered before the event. Almost every year this is Helena Bonham Carter. She pretty much always looks scary to me… but maybe it’s because I see her as Bellatrix Lestrange. Harry Potter for life.

  1. I’ve always thought of the Oscars as prom for people who never really grew up–just became ridiculously successful. Like, I wonder what else most of them would do if acting wasn’t an option. I’m sure the writers/directors/producers would be fine…but I’d imaging a lot of the actors don’t do much else. But, who cares? They make millions doing what they love. Anyway, the comment I was going to make was that Jennifer Lawrence is awesome and hilarious and I was glad to see her be in your blog post. Also, Helena is a kickass actress, but she always looks like she recently transitioned from 90s goth to Ke$ha’s older sister.
