Award season means that Hollywood’s biggest stars will be out on the town and gracing the red carpets at prestigious lunches, parties, and gala’s until the culmination of the season-ending award show, the 84th Annual Academy Awards. One of the hottest tickets in town is the Vanity Fair Oscar Party, held by Graydon Carter.
Rebecca Wang, a world-renown producer, headed for the star-struck event Sunday night for the second year in a row. She made her first appearance last year after producing the romantic thriller, Passion Play, a Toronto Film Festival Official Nominee. Passion Play features Academy Award Nominees Bill Murray (Lost in Translation) and Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler), also starring actress Megan Fox (Transformers).
The Vanity Fair Oscar Party has set the standard as the highest-quality Oscar Party in the city for years. This year’s venue will be the Sunset Tower Hotel, a location the party has become synonymous with over the last couple of years. Guests at this year’s exclusive event included Michael Douglas, Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, David & Victoria Beckham, Kate Beckinsale, Natalie Portman, Michael Douglas, Kirk Douglas, Martin Scorsese, Emma Stone, Gerard Butler, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sofia Coppola, Sean Combs, Jennifer Lopez, and George Lucas. Leading up to the event was a weeklong series of social gatherings co-sponsored by Chrysler and L’Oreal Paris, called “Campaign Hollywood”, a tradition for the magazines event for the last 13 Oscar Parties.
Wang, who recently attended the BAFTA Awards (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) earlier this month, is an international film producer, humanitarian, philanthropist, and former psychotherapist. Based out of London, she is a firm fixture in the philanthropy community as Wang will also be attending the Elton John Aids Foundation Oscar Viewing party, where she will be honored as a benefactor for a second straight year as well.
A producer, entrepreneur, writer, philanthropist and former psychotherapist, Rebecca Wang earned her Masters degree in Clinical Psychology at the University of California, Berkeley. Rebecca is a passionate benefactor of a variety of charities, including the Elton John Aids Foundation (EJAF), which she has supported for the past two years.
