The Academy Award Events were in full swing this weekend and the stunning Ms. Cate Blanchett was out and about before her win for best actress.
Sony Pictures Classics fêted its Academy Award® nominees Saturday night at its annual Pre-Oscar® dinner party at Supper Suite by STK, presented by Möet & Chandon and generously supported by FIJI Water as part of A-List Communication’s culinary platform events.
The dinner honored SPC’s Oscar® nominees, led by its Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress nominees Cate Blanchett (the BEST ACTRESS WINNER as of last night!) and Sally Hawkins, respectively, for their performances in Woody Allen’s BLUE JASMINE. SPC also honored Richard Linklater, Julie Delpy, and Ethan Hawke for Best Adapted Screenplay for BEFORE MIDNIGHT and Michael O’Connor, nominated for Best Costume Design for Ralph Fiennes’ THE INVISIBLE WOMAN.
Guests sipped on Möet & Chandon Imperial champagne while feasting on specialty STK menu items curated by Executive Chef Robert Liberato. After the first course, Co-Presidents and Co-Founders of Sony Pictures Classics, Tom Bernard and Michael Barker, congratulated all three films and everyone involved. Barker delivered an impassioned special tribute to Phillip Seymour Hoffman, who won an Oscar starring in SPC’s CAPOTE.
The evening featured a performance by fresh-faced singer songwriter, pianist, and guitarist Olivia Somerlyn —best known for her hit video “Before It Began.” She wowed the crowd with her acoustic version of U2’s nominated song Ordinary Love. At the end of the evening, STK Pastry Chef Brigette Contreras, presented specialty Blue Jasmine Macarons (blue-tinted macarons with a creamy jasmine filling) to Blanchett who was delighted to try more than one.
Guests in attendance included Cate Blanchett; Sally Hawkins; Julie Delpy; director Richard Linklater; Tom Bernard; Michael Barker; singer Olivia Somerlyn; stylist and TV host Phillip Bloch, Creative Coalition CEO Robin Bronk; and Cinetic Media’s John Sloss.
