The Beverly Hills Hotel’s Crystal Ballroom once again provided the venue for the arrival of approximately 150 film and TV stars on Sunday, March 2 who attended the hottest celebrity awards party in town with even bigger names than last year.
Norby Walters, veteran music agent, reprised his role as producer and dinner chairman. Executive producer of the event was billionaire clothing designer/manufacturer Peter Nygard, founder and chairman of Nygard International.
“This year was a record for the amount of media allowed to attend the red carpet… we had to turn away so many and that was hard,” said Edward Lozzi, media coordinator for The Night of 100 Stars for 24 years.
The formal sit-down dinner viewing party has always included past Oscar winners and nominees who returned to pay tribute to this year’s favorite Award nominees.
Stars and their guests were dressed to the nines in formal fashions represented by the nations finest design houses.
More than 300 media outlets from the U.S. and nearly 50 International news outlets covered the Night of 100 Stars at the event’s 300 foot red carpet.
