On December 8, at the iconic Sunset Tower Hotel in Los Angeles, Vulture hosted its inaugural Awards Season Party to toast the year’s best performances in film and TV, and New York Magazine’s first-ever Oscars-themed issue. Prestige film talent like New York cover star Natalie Portman, who plays the title character in Pablo Larraín’s critically acclaimed JackieMoonlight’s breakout actor Ashton Sanders, and Lion’s pint-sized star Sunny Pawar were among the Oscar hopefuls in attendance. Joining them was a slew of TV talent poised for SAG and Globes attention, including This Is Us’ Chrissy Metz, American Crime and The Leftovers’ Regina King, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s Rachel Bloom, UnReal’s Constance Zimmer, Documentary Now!’s Fred Armisen, The People vs. O.J.’s Cuba Gooding Jr., Life in Pieces’ Betsy Brandt, Veep’s Tony Hale and Timothy Simons, Casual’s Tommy Dewey, and Atlanta’s Brian Tyree Henry. With DJ Kiss on the beats, beverages flowing freely, and a stunning south-facing view of L.A. as their backdrop, guests stayed loose and lively for hours.
