Paramount and Grey Goose Oscar Dinner
Where: Soho House
Description: Paramount rocked the nominations this year, racking up 11 nods for Hugo alone and pretty much boxing out the entire "Best Animated" category (sorry, Pixar, but we all know Cars 2 was far from your best effort). After some tough times in recent years, they're throwing themselves a well deserved dinner party. Expect Martin Scorsese and studio head Brad Grey to be front and center.
OK Magazine Pre-Oscar Party
Where: Greystone Manor
Description:Don't bother double-checking the list of nominees, Adrian Grenier was not nominated for an Oscar. He is, however, being honored for his perhaps surprisingly deep amount of work in environmental activism. The party features music by Marshall Barnes, an appearance from Adrian's "Entourage" co-star Emmanuelle Chriqui, and a performance from the Glee Project.
Vanity Fair And Chrysler Celebrate The Eva Longoria Foundation
Description: Hopefully Eva, Eduardo Cruz and the staff at Beso were able to get home and get some rest after last night's Flamenco event, because they've got to be right back at it tonight for an event benefiting Eva's foundation, which sets out to empower Latina women.
QVC's "Buzz On The Red Carpet"
Where: Wetherly Garden
Description: You mean you haven't already circled the QVC party on your calendar? Seriously though, this prelude to the classic shopping channel's pre-Oscar luxury sale looks to pack in the celebs that have tried their hands at design, featuring names like Nicole Richie, Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kris Jenner and Kimora Lee Simmons.
Hollywood Reporter Nominees Night
Where: Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's Official Residence
Description: What, did you really think our never-shy Mayor would let this week go by without getting all up in it? Hosted by Janice Min and Lynne Segall, last year's party included big names like Amy Adams, David O. Russell, Sharon Stone and Mila Kunis.
