Step behind the velvet ropes for an inside look at the hot happenings at top Oscar parties and events surrounding film's biggest night. A-listers partied this year in celebration of Sunday's 91st Academy Awards as THR staffers dished on details from the annual festivities and star-studded soirees including stops at Vanity Fair's starry post-Oscars party, the Women in Film event co-hosted by double nominee Sandy Powell, the post-show Governors Ball and a detour to the beach for Film Independent's Spirit Awards hosted by Aubrey Plaza.
At first glance, this year's events and party schedule was more jam-packed than in recent memory. Some of the usual suspects were back hosting 2019 events, including Alfre Woodard, who celebrated her peers at the 10th annual Sistahs’ Soiree with nominee Regina King; J.J. Abrams, who hosted the 14th annual Oscar Wilde Awards at his Bad Robot offices in Santa Monica where nominee Glenn Close was feted; and Common, who was back with the fifth annual A Toast to The Arts Pre-Oscar Event in West Hollywood, where nominee Ruth E. Carter (who went on to win an Oscar)was celebrated alongside King, Rashida Jones, Amandla Stenberg and Chloe Zhao. New entrants also were on the scene, including a sustainability event hosted by Maison de Mode and co-chaired by co-founders Amanda Hearst and Hassan Pierre. That event honored Dr. Jane Goodall, Chopard and Caroline Scheufele. But when it's all said and done, the 2019 awards season circuit may be remembered for the first year that private clubs in Los Angeles — places like the H Club, Spring Place and San Vicente Bungalows — opened their doors for soirees while cannabis companies entered the fray to sponsor VIP events.
