Dear Movie Lover,
THE OSCARS AFTER-PARTY:
ALMOST AS IMPORTANT AS THE AWARDS!
 


And the Vanity Fair soiree is the most important see-and be-seen event of all.
 
But this year, guests must check their invitations carefully because Vanity Fair's Oscars Party has found a new home at
8680 Sunset Boulevard in the heart of Hollywood.
 

The annual dinner and post-Academy Awards celebration
is considered one of the most sought-after tickets during awards season---took place last year at Sunset Tower. The change of venue was said to be motivated by VF editor-in-chief Graydon
Carter's desire to accommodate a larger party. VF's guest list is
known to soar above 1000 people.
 
Invitations are now being sent out to nominees and notables from all walks of life.  If the photo below matches the one in your mailbox, you're in! (You're also Jennifer Lawrence, so congrats and good luck!)



OSCARS TO CELEBRATE 75th ANNIVERSARY OF
THE WIZARD OF OZ
 


The beloved film received six Academy Award nominations in 1939, including one for Best Picture. It won Oscars for original score and song, making Somewhere Over The Rainbow an all-time classic.
 
According to the Oscars awards producers, the Academy is delighted to celebrate the birthday of one of the most beloved movies of all time at this year's ceremony.
