...whew! I was worried that the a-listers wouldn't get their "goody" bags worth tens of thousands this year when most are hurting with layoffs and piles of bills unpaid this Christmas season.....these people are sooooo clueless. From Vanity Fair.com:
Vanity Fair will hold its annual Oscar Night party at the Sunset Tower Hotel on February 22, 2009, it was announced today by editor Graydon Carter...“The party will be a much more intimate affair than in years past; we’re going to scale back the guest list considerably,” Carter says. “We’ll celebrate Hollywood’s big night the way we did when we first threw the party 15 years ago—it will be a cozier, more understated event. And one with familiar decor—given the current economy, and our dedication to the green movement, we will be recycling many of the elements of years past. We also look forward to working with Jeff Klein, who owns the Sunset Tower (and is my partner in another venture), in making next year’s Oscar party a memorable one.”
Also, should a magazine that has seen shrinking sales and subscriptions really be spending money on a party?
