Ev­ery­one loves Olivia

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - FRONT PAGE - ANNE MARIE SCAN­LON

Given the con­tro­versy about who is or isn’t pre­sent­ing the Os­cars this year, maybe they should just can­cel the whole thing — along with ev­ery other award cer­e­mony com­ing down the pipe?

We’ve seen the Golden Globes and the tem­plate won’t change much. Af­ter a cou­ple of years of anx­i­ety about priv­i­lege, Hol­ly­wood has re­turned to its de­fault set­ting and is no longer that fussed about #Metoo or #Os­car­sowhite. No­body will sully their ac­cep­tance speech by men­tion­ing Wash­ing­ton, un­less they’re Chris­tian Bale (who has a sense of hu­mour, who knew?).

Some slebs will post ‘ironic’ self­ies like Daniel and Idris but they’ve set the bar way too high. Male ac­tors will be al­lowed to wear what­ever they’ve ironed, while fe­male ac­tors will be scru­ti­nised and judged ‘ best’ or ‘worst’ dressed. (And no­body will bet­ter Saoirse Ro­nan’s vin­tage cou­ture). Olivia Col­man will de­servedly win ev­ery­thing. Ev­ery­one gen­uinely loves Olivia Col­man. So much so, she’s al­lowed to wear what she likes.
