#Oscar Parties 2023: Inside the A-List Events
Oscar Parties 2023: Inside the A-List Events
The 2023 Oscars week brought with it days of A-list celebrations leading up to Sunday night’s 95th annual Academy Awards. Parties returned in full force this year for the first time since before the COVID-19 pandemic, with studios, agencies, fashion houses and other organizations like Vanity Fair, Elton John and MPTF all hosting their own soirees.
Below are some insider highlights from the 2023 festivities.
The Oscars’ official afterparty, held just upstairs from the Dolby Theatre, welcomed big winners including the Everything Everywhere All at Once team, Sarah Polley and Brendan Fraser, who had their new trophies engraved and posed for photos with their statues, as Ke Huy Quan’s excitement could be contained to the ground as he stood on the engraving station table. Harrison Ford, Angela Bassett, Ariana DeBose, Ava DuVernary, Brian Tyree Henry, Brendan Gleeson, Miles Teller, Riz Ahmed, Seth Rogen, Sigourney Weaver and Troy Kotsur were among those who also stopped by the Governors Ball before heading out to the rest of the party circuit.
Hosted once again by editor-in-chief Radhika Jones and held at a custom space next to the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, the starry to-do kicked off with an exclusive dinner (for 100 guests) and viewing party that rolled straight through to a packed afterparty. The overall configuration of the event was laid out as a series of indoor and outdoor rooms with an open-air garden courtyard and everywhere one looked, there were clusters of A-list conversations and unexpected pairings. In addition to bites by Evan Funke of Mother Wolf and Paula LeDuc Fine Catering & Events, the party featured In-N-Out burgers, custom Johnnie Walker and Tequila Don Julio bars and lounges, a central round DJ booth and bar presented by Richard Mille and a “Departures Lounge” where guests could snag Rothy’s Flats and Gnarwhal Coffee for the road.
Elton John AIDS Foundation’s 31st Annual Academy Awards Viewing Party
The 31stannual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party took place on Sunday, hosted by Sir Elton John and David Furnish with special guests Eric McCormack and Michaela Jaé Rodriguez. The event raised more than $9 million and featured a performance by Rina Sawayama, with Donatella Versace, Maren Morris, Fan Bingbing, Emma Watson, Wiz Khalifa, Heidi Klum, Dove Cameron, Hilary Duff, Brooke Shields, Noah Schnapp, Kesha, Saweetie, Stella Maxwell, Sophia Bush, Maggie Rogers, Jenna Dewan, Smokey Robinson, Karen Pittman, Simona Tabasco and Michael Imperioli among the attendees.
Paramount Pictures Afterparty
Jerry Bruckheimer, Damien Chazelle, Christopher McQuarrie, Diego Calva, Dominique Fishback, Noah Centineo and the Oscar-winning Top Gun: Maverick sound team were among those who attended the Paramount party at Mother Wolf after the big show.
Byron Allen’s Oscar Gala
Howie Mandel hosted Allen’s annual celebration at the Beverly Wilshire on Sunday, which featured a performance by Diana Ross and guests including Smokey Robinson, Anthony Anderson, Tracee Ellis Ross, Kenya Barris, Yvette Nicole Brown, Vivica A. Fox, Adam Carolla and Jeff Ross.
Chanel x Charles Finch
Everyone, everywhere, all at once. That’s how an insider described the scene on Saturday night inside the Beverly Hills Hotel’s Polo Lounge, host of the 14th annual edition of Chanel and Charles Finch’s pre-Oscars dinner and celebration. It’s an apt description as the chic affair always boasts an enviable RSVP list that features Oscar winners and nominees, auteurs and ingenues, artists and designers, producers and bon vivants. And, of course, Chanel muses like Kristen Stewart and Marion Cotillard. One would think that with their respective histories with the house that Stewart and Cotillard are close and that’s exactly what Nicole Kidman suggested when the trio collided amid flashbulbs and hugs on the intimate press line, all wearing Chanel, naturally. But, no, Cotillard said that she and Stewart only recently met at a “private dinner.” They connected like old friends, however, and Kidman and Cotillard also traded brief notes on motherhood.
Other guests seemed to be saying hello for the first time. Oscar winner Ariana DeBose was overheard congratulating Kerry Condon, who is nominated in the category in the category DeBose dominated last year, best supporting actress. “I just said your name today over the loud speaker,” relayed the West Side Story star, referring to rehearsals as she is booked to present an Oscar this year for that category. Meanwhile, the Banshees of Inisherin star told DeBose and Andrew Garfield, who was in the mix, that she was enjoying the wild ride of the weekend along with her brother who had flown in for the festivities from Ireland.
On that note, a Chanel-clad Ava DuVernay told THR that’s one of the reasons she always says yes to the invite from Chanel and Mr. Finch. (Dating back to Gabrielle Chanel, the luxury fashion house has deep roots supporting cinema and the artists and institutions that make or champion it.) “I like this event. I like to be able to sit down and have a proper dinner with folks who are interesting and it’s always feels like a family reunion of sorts because you get to see people in the industry you haven’t seen in a while.” One sight that had people buzzing, but not in a good was, was the seemingly ever-present L.A. rain that drenched the city and forced fashionistas to rethink ensembles. DuVernay offered up gratitude to Chanel for loaning her a coat while Stewart braved the elements and wore a Chanel shorts set that inspired memories of her 2022 Oscars look.
Precipitation be damned, this year’s pre-Oscars social calendar also felt like the first return to pre-pandemic normalcy with an overwhelming number of events. “It’s raging,” Patty Jenkins reported. “I was in Europe a year ago and I’ve never seen such a frenzy of activity. I feel like post-pandemic, we’re all more social than ever.”
Those who also said yes to being social were Creed III family of Michael B. Jordan, Tessa Thompson and Jonathan Majors (celebrating the film’s record-breaking debut), Andrew Garfield, nominee Andrea Riseborough (arriving with A-list manager Jason Weinberg and Karim Saleh),Ted Sarandos and Nicole Avant, Jeff Bezos and Lauren Sanchez, Brie Larson, Camila Morrone, Danielle Deadwyler, Daniel Kaluuya, Giveon, Hugh Grant, Jared Harris, Jason Clarke, Kyra Sedgwick and Kevin Bacon, Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow, Lily James, Idris Elba, Rita Ora, Riz Ahmed, Sarah Polley, Sigourney Weaver, Tobey Maguire, Vicky Krieps, Derek Blasberg, Darren Aronofsky, Janicza Bravo, Jennifer Meyer, Jeremy O. Harris, Jeremy Kleiner, Jerry Bruckheimer, Kate Young, , Rachel Zoe and many more.
White Lotus star Beatrice Granno took a seat at the piano at one point and reminded everyone of her musical skills playing Mia on the HBO Max hit series. The party’s other accessories included a mariachi band that greeted guests upon arrival, a decadent Polo Lounge dinner and vibes that are unmistakably Chanel. “It’s Chanel, everything they do is always right,” explained Rachel Zoe. “I mean, have you ever known them not to do anything flawlessly?”
MPTF’s “Night Before”
Saturday, aka the night before the Oscars, proved to be a starry night on the Fox lot. The Motion Picture & Television Fund mounted its annual “Night Before” party and the 21st annual fundraiser was typically teeming with Oscar winners and nominees, filmmakers, executives and entertainment industry insiders. The results are cause for celebration as the event raised more than $4.5 million for a total of more than $100 million in the event’s history. Co-chaired by 2023 Oscar nominees Angela Bassett and Cate Blanchett with George Clooney, Emma Thomas and Christopher Nolan, all of whom were in attendance last night. Also there: Austin Butler, Hong Chau, Kerry Condon, Jamie Lee Curtis, Ana de Armas, Paloma and Vin Diesel, Colin Farrell, Brendan Fraser, Salma Hayek Pinault, Brian Tyree Henry, Catherine Martin and Baz Luhrmann, Paul Mescal, Bill Nighy, Echo and Ke Huy Quan and Michelle Yeoh, among many others.
Giorgio Armani Pre-Oscars Party Honoring Michelle Yeoh
Giorgio Armani, which reopened its L.A. flagship store last year after a stunning redesign, threw its annual pre-Oscar party on Saturday, March 11, at the location on Rodeo Drive. This year’s party, hosted by Roberta Armani, honored Oscar nominee (and now Oscar winner) Michelle Yeoh, who attended the bash wearing a Giorgio Armani Privé spring/summer 2023 short-sleeved, cropped jacket embroidered in peony pink crystals and paillettes with tulle ruffle accents paired with perfectly tailored black silk velvet trousers. Yeoh caught up at the fete with her Everything Everywhere All At Once co-stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Ke Huy Quan, Stephanie Hsu and Harry Shum Jr.
Brendan Fraser also attended, meaning that Armani had all four of Oscar night 2023’s acting winners in the house.
Elsewhere inside the store — where a DJ spun tunes on the mezzanine level — THR saw John Wick 4’s Shamier Anderson, Shazam! Fury of the Gods’ Ross Butler and Black Adam’s Noah Centineo palling around, while Scream VI’s Mason Gooding hung out with Michael Cimino, who he starred with on Love, Victor. The starry crowd also included Tessa Thompson, Samuel L. Jackson, Allison Williams, Jenny Slate, Thuso Mbedu, Lexi Underwood, Phil Dunster, Lewis Tan, Josh Dallas and Abigail Spencer.
Netflix Oscar Nominee Celebration
The streamer hosted its Oscars celebration on Saturday night at Sunset Tower, with nominees including Ana de Armas, Guillermo del Toro, Edward Berger and execs Ted Sarandos, Scott Stuber and Bela Bajaria.
American Cinema Editors’ Invisible Art Visible Artists panel
There was no question who edited Top Gun: Maverick at American Cinema Editors’ Invisible Art Visible Artists pre-Academy Awards program on Saturday. Oscar nominee Eddie Hamilton attended the annual event wearing an authentic hat from Top Gun and a Naval aviator jacket, adorned with patches, including some given to him by various squadrons and other representing different crew departments on the movie such as locations and editorial (this patch has an embroidered aircraft with a trail of film). His jacket also had a patch that said “Trigger,” which Hamilton explained was his “call sign” on the movie. “Everyone on the crew had call signs,” he said, adding that director Joe Kosinski was “Battlestar.”
The event began with a panel of this year’s Oscar nominated editors before students and professionals at the Regal Sherman Oaks Galleria, moderated by Academy Award-nominated editor and ACE president Kevin Tent (and with thanks to Oscar-winner and past ACE president Alan Heim, who led the IAVA panels for the last 18 years).
Each nominee sharing how they got into the business, with Mikkel Nielsen (The Banshees of Inisherin) getting a big laugh when he admitted that he started out as an actor but his small role was cut out of film. He quipped, “That opened my eyes to editing.”
Paul Rogers, editor of Everything Everywhere All at Once, revealed that a scene that was cut from the final movie featured Michelle Yeoh’s Evelyn as a piece of spaghetti. Elvis editors Matt Villa and Jonathan Redmond related that they first worked together as assistants on Moulin Rouge! “He’s a very loyal director,” said Jonathan Redmond of Baz Luhrmann. The pair also talked about the “incredible” star of the film, Austin Butler, with Villa admitting that the performances “could have been cut looking at nothing but Austin.” (Editing nominee Monika Willi of Tár wasn’t in attendance.)
A nominees luncheon with margaritas at Frida Mexican Cuisine, hosted by Motion Picture Editors Guild (Local 700) followed the panel. Speaking of his fellow nominees that he got to know during the season, Rogers summed up, “We’re spread all over the globe, I hope that we continue to find ways to get together after all of this is over.” — Carolyn Giardina
Vanity Fair’s Everything Everywhere All at Once Celebration
On Friday night, the cast and crew of Everything Everywhere All at Once gathered at the Mandarin Oriental Residences in Beverly Hills for an intimate party hosted by Vanity Fair and Richard Mille. After a long and fruitful awards season, the EEAAO team doesn’t seem to be slowing down the celebrations anytime soon, as they prepare for the big night to come.
Nominees Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan and Stephanie Hsu mingled throughout the party, hugging friends, chatting with well-wishers and snapping selfies. Co-director Daniel Scheinert and producer Jonathan Wang greeted guests in the opening foyer, while cast members Harry Shum Jr. and Jenny Slate were also in attendance. Fellow nominee Jamie Lee Curtis — who recently told The Hollywood Reporter that she prefers to be in bed by 9 p.m. (“Mommy goes to bed early,” the actress said) — was not in attendance.
As the crowd thinned out, the party moved onto the dance floor, where Yeoh, Shum Jr., Scheinert and Thompson danced the rest of the night away — at one point, there was even a conga line. The pre-Oscar party also saw the attendance of celeb guests such as Tessa Thompson, Ben Barnes, Lana Condor and Natalie Morales. — Sydney Odman
L.A.’s seemingly nonstop showers forced the powerhouse agency to move its pre-Oscars celebration from San Vicente Bungalows to Sunset Tower on Friday night. The rain didn’t dampen the star power, however, as nominated clients turned out in full force including Cate Blanchett, Brendan Fraser, Michelle Williams, Lady Gaga, James Cameron, Ana de Armas, Paul Mescal, Jamie Lee Curtis, Colin Farrell, Steven Spielberg, Brian Tyree Henry, Andrea Riseborough, Stephanie Hsu, Tems, Jerry Bruckheimer, Todd Field, Martin McDonagh and Rian Johnson, among others.

The party happened to fall on Olivia Wilde’s 39th birthday, and she was spotted blowing out a birthday cake, seen below.
The powerhouse agency posted up on Friday night at an iconic location — the Hearst Estate in Beverly Hills, a location featured in The Godfather — for a pre-Oscars celebration that was hosted by WME co-chairmen Christian Muirhead and Richard Weitz. Oscar nominated clients Austin Butler, Baz Luhrmann, Ruben Östlund, Sarah Polley, Alfonso Cuaron, Eric Warren Singer and All That Breathes feature doc director Shaunak Sen received pats on the back at the packed party that also hosted a long list of boldfaced names like Elton John and David Furnish, Amy Adams, Robert Pattinson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Miles Teller, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, Tessa Thompson, Jonathan Majors, Teyana Taylor, Adam Sandler, Brie Larson, Kristen Stewart, Orlando Bloom, Eve Hewson, Donald Glover, Simona Tabasco, Aziz Ansari, Dakota Johnson, Sienna Miller, Larry David, Diego Calva, Finneas O’Connell, Lars von Trier, Kid Cudi, Tyler the Creator, Ruth E.

WIF Oscar Party
WIF (Women in Film, Los Angeles) celebrated its 16th annual Oscar party on Friday night, honoring the 65 women, in front of and behind the camera, who are nominated for an Academy Award this year. Co-hosted by producer and WIF Board president Emerita Cathy Schulman, as well as CODA‘s Marlee Matlin and Siân Heder, many of this year’s female nominees were in attendance and took part in the event’s tradition of each introducing themselves onstage and gathering for a class photo. Mandy Walker, the Elvis cinematographer who could become the first woman to win that category, received particularly loud cheers when she stepped up to the podium and shots were passed out to the crowd for a toast.
“All of us who live on set know how crucial the sisterhood is between above- and below-the-line women in film,” Schulman said from onstage. “We know that men at the top of their field have countless opportunities to network and get to know each other, but women are still left out.” A starry group of non-nominees were also in attendance, including Lake Bell, Madeline Brewer, Jordana Brewster, Sophia Bush, Barbie Ferreira, Patti Harrison, Christina Hendricks, Brendan Hunt, Dakota Johnson, Li Jun Li and Chloé Zhao.

The event, originally set for Friday, went down Thursday night due to L.A.’s chaotic rainstorm situation.

Walking in the show were Naomi Campbell, Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Emily Ratajkowski.
