I got a chance to attend the annual “Night of 100 Stars” Oscar viewing party at the glitzy Beverly Hills Hotel here in Southern California. As an entertainment blogger, I always get excited about the Hollywood award season. The red carpets are rolled out in style and we get to see some amazing films. But what is even cooler are the Oscar parties.
As the press and I camped out in the Hotel on the red carpet, we waited for the 187 celebrities planning to attend this year’s annual viewing event. To give you an idea of what the viewing party is all about, “Night of 100 Stars” is considered the biggest party for the number of celebrities that attend and is considered the third biggest Oscar party in Hollywood.
As celebrities began to arrive I got a chance to talk to Actor Keith David, who many know from such movies as “Platoon” and “Crash”. When asked about his favorite Oscar-nominated movies, he said “I loved ‘The King’s Speech’ and ‘The Fighter’. I hope they win tonight”.
Later in the evening, I interviewed the beautiful and talented Actress Taylor Cole who plays Vicky Roberts on NBC’s “The Event”. We got a chance to talk a little about what’s coming up on the show, she said jokingly “If I told you I’d have to kill you”. But she went on to say “There is going to be a bunch of different characters that haven’t worked together yet that come together. So we get to see new dynamics on the show. There is also going to be a lot of twists, a lot of answers, and a lot of new questions”.
Also walking the red carpet was Actor Jake Busey, who many know from “Starship Troopers”. When asked about what he was up to nowadays, he said “I’m developing a film called a sweet ride, it’s a romantic comedy. That I will be directing and it takes place in NY. It’s actually sort of a remake of an old classic. I’m very excited to be moving into directing films and not just acting. It’s something that I have always wanted to do”.
