Just about everyone in Hollywood was at the Oscars on Sunday, and just about everyone else was at one of these two after-parties … courtesy of Elton John and Vanity Fair.
These were the biggest shindigs in town post-award show — and as you see, they were absolutely packed with star power. Not just actors, BTW, but musicians, comedians, models and socialites were dressed in their best getups.
Check out who showed up where … over at the VF bash in Bev Hills, we saw faces like Jessica Alba, Jennifer Coolidge, Donald Glover, Trevor Noah, Naomi Watts, Tracee Ellis Ross, Dwyane Wade, Gabrielle Union, Michael Keaton, Queen Latifah, Olivia Wilde, Sarah Paulson, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen … and even 2 politicos, Nancy Pelosi and Monica Lewinsky.
Meanwhile, out in WeHo, the Rocket Man himself was hosting an Oscars viewing party through his AIDS foundation … and that, too, was flowing with glamorous A-listers.
Elton was able to get a solid crowd together himself … people who swung by include Heidi Klum, Kathy Hilton, Christina Hendricks, Tiffany Haddish, Brooke Shields, Patricia Arquette, Smokey Robinson, Zooey Deschanel, Hilary Duff, Emma Watson and many more.
Of course, everyone there was also dressed to impress … rocking gowns, suits, tuxes and everything fancy in between. Elton himself was in his traditional heart-shaped shades.
It’s just the cherry on top for a pretty great night all around … everybody seemed to be on their best behavior and was certainly having a ball as they celebrated filmmaking.
Like we told you, all the nominees were in quite the touchy-feely mood behind the scenes at the Dolby Theater itself — but in a good and respectful way … meaning, they were just bringing it in for hugs and kisses as they congratulated each other. No slaps or swings.
And, naturally, every person that made their big entrance in front of the cameras was also in their best Sunday ‘fits … with most everybody rocking fairly traditional, elegant outfits.
Not only were the nominees looking pristine … but so were the presenters, all 40+ of ’em.
As for the highlights of the actual broadcast itself … well, there were a lot. Ke Huy Quan (the kid from “The Goonies” and ‘Temple of Doom’) won an Oscar, as did Jamie Lee Curtis and Michelle Yeoh … as did Brendan Fraser. They took home the top acting honors of the night.
Speaking of “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” that movie swept just about every major category it was nominated in … including Best Original Screenplay, Best Editing, Best Director(s) and Best Picture
Bust out the googly eyes … ’cause ‘EEAAO’ is the champ, y’all. Well deserved, too!
