Oscar's Golden Beard Shines Bright

Forget about the falling on the way acceptance, the drug addled 'stars,' the mile a minute gibberish, the CGI bear or even Babs making people wet in the general eye area.

The Oscars last night were all about the beard. Full stop. Below is our proof, should you need it or missed it... we could go on pasting examples of fine facial hair fortitude, but thinking you agree we've made the case when the beardiest picture won top Honors, while best actor went to the dude protraying one of history's most famous beardo. 

Congrats Ben, you deserve it... you've come a long way since your hairless child-face in Reindeer Games. Kudos.

We are tagging this post under Beard Ball, because frankly that's what it was at heart, just take a look at the volume...

And finally all the way to three producers, three beards, three Oscars... a billion smiling fans:


Of course our good friends at Pop Sugar already have a poll out who wore the best beard (though a limited selection). You can vote here.

I often dread following anything out of entertainment - it's so utterly useless in light of the problems of the world - but from this post one redeeming value grows: the beard. Thanks for pointing out the only notable feature to this annual freak show. Finally men are getting to take back from innate manhood - and from anyplace it happens, it is legit. Now if only we could get them to shut up and keep growing. That would be two positive contributions.

Can anyone recommend a good beard softener for my newly grown in (slightly itchy) mane? I have heard that hair conditioner works but I have heard that I am gonna have to go with something a little heavier to get the itch out. Should I go with an oil or a 'leave in' conditioner. I have been looking at,, and Fort Amsterdam Beard Oil.

Let me know what you guys have found best! Have a great weekend and sorry for my rookie questions.

Beards are so popular right now. I think they are here to stay. I have been growing mine for 8 months now and I have been using beard oil and beard wax. In regard to the comment above I believe any beard oil will work but I searched some of the brands you posted and I think that they all look fantastic. Some might be a little overpriced but they should do the trick. I usually use beard oil moderately during the week and then on weekends if I am on a date or going to an event I will really put on the wax and oil for a glistening perfect beard. has a combo pack that is reasonably priced. Let me know which brand you went with. Thanks for the great beard blog. I am going to link to this!

Beards we're in style until everyone started growing them. I've already heard from many good looking women that beards are no longer attractive. The ball is swinging to clean shaven men having the hottest look now. Sorry to the cattle left with a beard, us guys that shaved our beards now have the upper hand! Beards are OUT!!!! As far as buying beard oil? It's a total rip off, just use some regular conditioner or lotion.
