Guilty. I really do love the dress. She looked gorgeous in it. I am feeling kind of neutral on her decision to go for the attention grabbing statement dress—I’m not usually a fan of that—but whatever. She was happy to be there and having her moment.

R132, Cher was a presenter the year she wore that enormous headdress (she presented the award for Best Supporting Actor). She might not have been seated in the auditorium. That was her revenge outfit for not getting a nomination for MASK and I think she saved the big reveal for her entrance on stage.

She should have been moved to the far end of the row, where the auditorium is angled so that she wouldn't have obstructed anyone.
I'm curious what she thinks of having done this. Did she feel bad at all? Did she really not notice? Was she thinking this was a good way for her to advance her career? Did she know everything going on and really enjoyed the attention over it?
Narcissism is fascinating.

You heard that from two--count 'em - two people on Twitter. Both of whom are trolls who say shit like that because they know it will get them noticed.

R163, in R71, she is directly quoted as saying:
[quote]"Two years ago, I would've said no to this dress," Tems laughs. "But it's my first Oscars — I am going to go all out. I really wanted to make the most of the day. The dress is also my way of celebrating my work and the people around me, celebrating my country, and celebrating the people that are rooting for me. This dress says 'Yes, yes, I am here!'"
[quote]"If I see a limitation, I cure it. Any limitation that I find in myself or things that are hindering progress, I reject that. My normal state of being is without limitations. Who I am is without limitations. Limitation is a foreign thing to me," she says confidently. "I'm going to go and go and go and go and go and go and go and reach and reach and reach and reach till I literally cannot anymore—which is till I die. Like till the grave!" she laughs.
[quote]"All of this, to me, is an open door. Not just for me, but for everybody who is from where I'm from. If I can do it, they can do it," she continues. "I'm happy that I got to fight, and I want to let people know that they should fight for every single thing that they believe in. It's not easy, but once you have a plan, once you know who you are and you know where you're going, every single thing sorts itself out."
I think it's safe to say that she feels very entitled, and the Twitter trolls are simply amping it up a small amount.

Tems speaks and outs herself as being selfish and full of bullshit:
“Two years ago, I would’ve said no to this dress,” she told Harpers Bazaar in an interview days before the Oscars that was published Monday. “But it’s my first Oscars — I am going to go all out. I really wanted to make the most of the day. The dress is also my way of celebrating my work and the people around me, celebrating my country, and celebrating the people that are rooting for me. This dress says, ‘Yes, yes, I am here!’”

And, of course, the racists had to defend her:
Some people celebrated the fact that a Black woman unapologetically took up space at a historically white ceremony that has long faced criticism for a lack of diversity in its nominees and winners. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences was slammed for shutting out several Black filmmakers and performers from recent films, such as “The Woman King” and “Till,” in its Oscars nominations this year.
“I applaud Tems for proudly and unapologetically taking up space and owning it, and I’m following her example,” journalist Carolyn Hinds tweeted.
