The MPTF's Night Before the Oscars bash will take place on the 20th Century Fox lot, a change from the Beverly Hills Hotel, where it was held for the past 12 years. This year's 900 attendees are scheduled to include Meryl Streep, Michael Keaton and Julianne Moore, with food by Lucques' Suzanne Goin (THR is the media sponsor). But it's uncertain whether the event will return to Fox. "It's a very active lot," says MPTF CEO Bob Beitcher of the "incredibly generous" studio's many projects in production: "I don't think we've broached the 'We'd like to do this every year' conversation. One year at a time."
