On OscarÂ® Sunday February 24th, the Beverly Hills Hotel’s Crystal Ballroom has again provided the venue for the arrival of approximately 150-200 film and TV stars who attended the hottest celebrity Awards party in town with even bigger names than last year.
Norby Walters, veteran music agent, reprises his role as Producer and Dinner Chairman again as for the past few decades.
The formal sit-down dinner viewing party has always included past Oscar winners and nominees who will return to pay tribute to this year’s favorite Award nominees. Stars and their guests were dressed in a formal attire, and represented by the nations finest design houses.
The media has always rated the Night of 100 Stars as one of the top Award parties. The Daily News rated this party as “…the number one Oscar party, just for the sheer number of celebrities attending…”. ABC’s Good Morning America covered this party from inside and said. ” Voting Academy members flock to the Night of 100 Stars and we are here tonight with many former Oscar and Golden Globe winners. Is this an Oscar party or the Golden Globes”? The Jimmy Kimmel Show taped segments for the show and said, ” …a wild party with mostly celebrities and they are everywhere you look..and they have the most beautiful girls”. The Hollywood Reporter says, ” Numerous former Academy Award winners and nominees turned out Sunday during the Night of 100 Stars Oscar Gala..including (150 stars) Richard Dreyfuss, Martin Landau, Chevy Chase, Fred Willard, James Cromwell, Ron Perlman, Renee Taylor, Jason Ritter, and so many more.”
