Celebrities Voice Their Opinions at the 2011 “Night of 100 Stars” Oscar Viewing Party

It was a night of glitz and glamor on Sunday as I attended the 2011 “Night of 100 Stars” Oscar viewing party at the Beverly Hills Hotel. While there was much talk of who people think would win the Oscar for best more or best actor, many celebrities came and voice their opinions about world news that is currently happening.

Actor Phil Morris, who many know from playing Martin Manhunter on “Smallville“, gave me his thoughts about Egypt and what social media did in the revolt, “I think it breaks down barriers; whether they are religious or political, I mean there are agendas of all types. I’m not downing politics or religion, but it gives the populous knowledge that they didn’t have before. It gives them access to truths that they didn’t have before”.

I also got a chance to talk to Actor Gary Busey, who many know from the movie “Lethal Weapon“. When asked about what he thought about the protests in Wisconsin, he said “I think America is finally learning how to turn the dump over and get rid of the bull and put it on the people who celebrate the destruction”.  When also asked about his thoughts on Egypt he replied “Who cares, I think we should be a concern for our country. We need to stay out of the messes those guys are creating”.

Actor Ed Asner, from the animated movie “Up“, said “It’s ridiculous. We have these billionaires financing this joke of a governor. Its people like that destroys the communal effort that this country is capable of.” when asked about the Wisconsin protests.

Entertainment Lawyer Gloria Allred, who had a lot to say about the Charlie Sheen fiasco “I have long been concern that he may be a risk of harm to himself or others. I’ve sad that I’ve written that in open letter to Charlie Sheen and now he hurt more than 200 people who are out of work because of his conduct”.

Hollywood Celebrates the Oscars at the 2011 “Night of 100 Stars” Viewing Party

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”.
