On Saturday night, I had the pleasure of attending the Sony Pictures Classics Oscars Nominees Dinner at the Supper Suite by STK, sponsored by Ketel One Vodka and the Kia K900. As guests sipped KO vodka cocktails and enjoyed a delish meal of grass fed Piedmontese filets and hand cut caper pappardelle prepared by STK Executive Chef Robert Liberato, honorees such as Julianne Moore (Still Alice), Mark Ruffalo (Foxcatcher) and JK Simmons (Whiplash) were all in attendance on this special night, saluting SPC’s eighteen Academy Awards noms.
And even though Moore arrived late, she entered the party on the arm of her cutie patootie hubby, Bart Freundlich, who couldn’t have been more supportive of his beautiful bride. Never leaving her side, they cuddled up during the toasts of the evening.
Mark Ruffalo also brought his other half, Sunrise Coigney, who was beaming when watching him work the room. Simmons remained quite calm, accepting well wishes on his nomination from party guests, as he posed for pics.
Meanwhile, across the room, model Selita Ebanks sampled STK’s wine offerings and drank Voss water. And Taylor Dayne had to call it an early night in order to catch a 6 o’clock AM flight the next day for a performance in another state. At the end of the evening, the remaining party-goers all rushed the center courtyard for a late-night dance party. You can’t beat those!
