“I kinda go for the Jane Eyre type of film. I am fascinated by classics”- The Birds Actress, Tippi Hedren
The 89th Annual Academy Awards was a big night for Hollywood. On Sunday, the best of the best gathered to the exclusive Roger Neal Style Hollywood (RNSH) Oscar Viewing Dinner and Oscar Beauty & Couture Suite at the world-famous Hollywood Museum. Now in its 21st year, RNSH presented ICON Awards to Hollywood royalty, including legendary actress Tippi Hedren from Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds, Burt Ward (“Robin” from Batman) and “Hercules” himself, the magnificent Kevin Sorbo.
Julie Newmar (Catwoman) presented Burt Ward’s ICON award and Paul Sorvino from Goodfellas fame, presented Kevin Sorbo with his ICON award.
The RNSH Oscar Viewing Dinner and Oscar Beauty & Couture Suite is a power-house Annual Academy Award event presented by the Suzan Hughes S.H.E. Foundation and included a special Academy Awards exhibit. Past Oscar winners and nominees from television and film took advantage of touring the museum prior to enjoying the delicious Oscar viewing dinner. Chef John Safoyan of LA Lobster Party served the Stars fresh lobster from Maine while Chef Turok of Mascarpone Cheesecake rounded the dinner off with his gourmet cheesecake. The stars also enjoyed wine and champagne by Lorimar Winery and Sunshine Mountain Wines & Vineyard.
“We are beyond thrilled to be back at the Hollywood Museum which houses the largest collection of entertainment memorabilia on display in the world”, said Roger Neal.
The Academy Awards recognizes excellence in the motion picture, arts and sciences and connects the world through the plasm of images that inspire us, anger us or simply move us to feel more deeply. With an audience viewership of nearly 33 million people this year, there was plenty of Oscar drama and comedic political jabs aimed at the new presidential administration. But the nights most memorable and defining moment came at the very end when La La Land producers were interrupted mid acceptance speech to reveal that Moonlight had actually won Best Picture, taking the nights top honor.
