New York Welcomes the Oscars®

The Oscar

Tonight many New Yorkers will have their own super bowl. The Academy Awards, The Oscars®

There will be many Oscar parties and viewers in Living rooms throughout Manhattan tonight. The New York Academy members and Guests will celebrate the Oscars tonight at Daniel Boulud's iconic landmark restaurant Daniel.

Daniel will be rolling out the red carpet for New York-based members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, entertainment industry executives, and several hometown luminaries to celebrate the 85th Oscars with an exclusive viewing party, the only East Coast event officially hosted by the Academy. 

This year’s show is of special significance to New Yorkers, as its producers are the Gotham-based motion picture, television and theater producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who have executive produced such acclaimed feature films as “Chicago” and “Hairspray,” as well as the current NBC musical series “Smash.”

World-renowned chef Daniel Boulud is preparing a special menu of cocktails and canapés with a nod to this year’s nominated films, to be served along with his seasonally inspired, award-winning contemporary French cuisine.  

Now celebrating its 20th year, Daniel is one of the very few restaurants to have received the New York Times four-star rating as well as three Michelin stars.  Chef Boulud, who hails from Lyon, France, is considered one of America’s leading culinary authorities and one of the most revered chefs in New York City, which he has called home since 1982.

Three 7.5-foot versions of the 13.5-inch, 8.5-pound Oscar statuette, one of world’s most recognized symbols, will greet the New York party goers as they enter the restaurant on Oscar Night.  These golden sentinels are identical to the larger-than-life Oscars that will greet the ceremony’s attendees on the Hollywood red carpet.  Numerous large screens will ensure that guests don’t miss a moment of the show’s excitement.

Oscars for outstanding film achievements of 2012 will be presented on Oscar Sunday, tonight, at the Dolby Theatre™ at Hollywood & Highland Center®, and will be hosted by Seth MacFarlane. The Oscar presentation will be televised live on the ABC Television Network and in more than 225 countries worldwide.


Congratulations to all the nominees and winners tonight

Thanks Janis, The flu is terrible. I never had a cough last this long. It's been a week already. At least I completed my mandatory 22.5 hours continuing ed online while sick in bed this week. Ask me about Fair Housing ,-)

 Maybe next year...something to dream about.

For years we hosted an Academy Award party.  It was great fun and everyone had ballots to vote with, and the winners would get a nice prize...I was thinking of reviving it...Love Daniel Bouliud.  Enjoy the show, we are still waiting for our actor friends and director friends to get nominated to that we can go with them.  LOL A
