The most lavish event associated with the annual Oscar ceremony, the Graydon Carter-sponsored Vanity Fair Oscar soiree, has been cancelled. Carter issued a statement on VF’s behalf explaining that the decision came from solidarity with striking writers, and that the party will not go on even if the strike is settled before the ceremony. You can read all about it at The New York Times.
A nice gesture, and it’s not like I was ever getting into that party anyway. Until I accept my Oscar for Best Visual Effects for my starring turn in the Keira Knightley biopic, that is.
