All posts related to Oscars on Guest of a Guest for Oscars.
Following a fully-loaded week of pre-parties in anticipation of the 2013 Oscars, last night boasted some of the most lavish, star-studded events of the year for the final hurrah of awards season. Between the annual Governors Ball, Vanity Fair party and Elton John's Viewing party, all of Hollywood came out to celebrate the 85th Annual Academy Awards and we have the guest lists, photos and details from inside for you in this special Oscar Night edition of Last Night's Parties.
Oh, sweet merciful lord, let us rejoice. At long last, this year's awards season has ended with last night's 85th Annual Academy Awards officially over. We'll be bringing you updates on how the entertainment industry celebrated with star-studded parties and events all weekend across L.A., but first we must discuss the most pressing issue of the weekend: what people wore to the awards show. Though we were a bit underwhelmed by the overall showing in the fashion department for Hollywood's biggest night, there were certainly some knockouts that made us coo. So sit back and join us now as we bring you our top 15 looks from the 2013 Oscars red carpet.
Over a billion people tuned in for the 85th Academy Awards last night. The show might have brought us flying nuns and talking teddy bears, but once the ceremony ended it was all about the exclusive after parties. Even though, only a select few were allowed in, we've rounded up some of the best behind the scene shots and photos from the invite-only bashes, to get a peek inside last night's festivities.
When it comes to post-Oscars festivities, we all know that there are three major after parties that our favorite celebs are sure to hit up over the course of the night: Vanity Fair, Governors Ball and Elton John's annual AIDS Foundation party. Once all of the gold statues have been awarded, you'll find Hollywood's elite celebrating into the wee hours of the morning. And being that we're talking about Oscar night, you'd better believe that they're partying in style. From Kate Bosworth's chic Giambattista Valli dress to Jennifer Lawrence's couture costume change, click through for our favorite Oscar after party looks.
Sunday's Oscars marks the grand finale to nearly two months of Hollywood congratulating itself with dry awards ceremonies, feigned breathless Anne Hathaway speeches that bring new meaning to annoying and insufferable, and celebrities stepping out in glamorous designer fashions. Though we could certainly go on peacefully for the remainder of our natural born lives without another awards show, we are very much looking forward to seeing what the stars will being wearing as they sashay down the red carpet on Hollywood's biggest night. So, as part of our countdown to the 85th Annual Academy Awards, let's take a walk down the best part of memory lane with our 25 favorite Oscar looks from the past five years...
It's Oscar season, which means that we'll get to see some of our favorite couture pieces on the red carpet. We love seeing how our favorite celebrities (and their stylists) put their own spin on the gowns. Mark your calendars, because red carpet coverage starts at 5:30 this Sunday.
The 85th Annual Academy Awards comes our way this Sunday and while we're breathing a sigh of relief that with it comes the end of another unrelenting whirlwind awards season, we can't help but look forward to the killer festivities leading up to the big night. From the luxurious gifting suites, luncheons, dinners, viewing parties, pre-parties and after parties, Hollywood is pulling out all the stops to make this Oscar Week the grandest of them all with some of best events of awards season happening now through Sunday. So polish those shoes, get a mani/pedi, dry-clean that tux and call in every favor you have as we bring you the GofG L.A. 2013 Oscar Week Event Guide.
You know how when you're a kid, you always want to sit with the grown-ups at the big table, but then when you get there you realize that the kids' table was more fun to begin with? That's kind of the deal with the Oscars after party scene, also. Sure, it's a great honor to get invited to the show and the subsequent "Governor's Ball," but there's a reason why the Academy finally scuttled the sit-down dinner element of the Ball for a more streamlined cocktail-party this year: because people kept leaving early to go to all the other parties, including the perpetually star-studded Vanity Fair gala at the Sunset Tower.

Congratulations everyone, we have made it though another awards season in one piece and can begin the healing process. I'd just like to say kudos to Billy Crystal for keeping last night's ceremony moving and doing his best to make it as painless as one can for the invariably boring ordeal. Last night's winners were somewhat expected and, frankly, I really don't think I could care less. So let's get to the part that actually matters: what everyone wore. Without further ado, we bring you our picks for the best and worst dressed of the red carpet at the 2012 Oscars. More»
Thanks to Billy Crystal and an Academy comprised of old, humorless, white men, the Oscars was a night where the microphone feedback was far louder than the laughs. But have no fear, Twitter saved the day, boasting not only new accounts from Angelina Jolie's right leg and JLo's nipple, but a semi-offical #tweetroast by funnier comedians lambasting Tinseltown's favorite PR campaign. Here are some humorous highlights. More»
After last year's James Franco high-as-a-kite fiasco, the Oscars decided to keep things especially PG this year with Billy Crystal, Justin Bieber, Cirque du Soleil, and the theme of "At The Movies." But live TV spares no one, and even though the ceremony lagged (as per usual) and was severely disappointing in terms of Scorsese's Hugo sweeping the heap, there were some very awesome moments that need to be discussed. From Angelina Jolie's right leg, to J.Lo's nipple/non-nipple, and Bridesmaids taking shots, check out the very best of the Oscars 2012.
