And, the winner is…Leonardo DiCaprio? Peter O’Toole? Penelope Cruz? Judy Dench? Will Smith? Ryan Gosling? Forest Whitaker? Meryl Streep, Kate Winslet? Babel? The Departed? Letters From Iwo Jima? Little Miss Sunshine? The Queen? So many fabulously gifted actors and incredibly fine films to chose from, and alas, only one Golden Statue per category to give.
One winner, however, is predictable. Norby Walters along with his co-host Peter Nygard, is throwing his glittering 17th Annual Night of 100 Stars Gala. Considered to be the hottest Oscar party in town, hundreds of stars will show up at the Beverly Hills Hotel adorned in their finest formal attire to pay tribute to this year’s nominees.
