Tonight, Women in Film held its sixth annual pre-Oscars event honoring females in the movie industry at LA restaurant Fig & Olive. Last year's best supporting actress winner, Octavia Spencer, played cohost for the event, and two of her costars from The Help were also in attendance. Viola Davis walked the red carpet with her husband, while Jessica Chastain made a late arrival to the soiree after fighting LA traffic. The event, sponsored by MAC, Max Mara, and Perrier-Jouet, honors women who are recognized for their work both in front of — and behind — the camera.
Of course, men were welcome at the bash, as well. Director David O. Russell, whose film Silver Linings Playbook is up for best picture on Sunday, attended. So did Daniel Radcliffe, who chatted up Jessica inside the party. Beyond Jessica, several of this year's female Oscar nominees were also in attendance, including best supporting actress nominee Jacki Weaver. Jacki told us her husband is working and won't be able to be her date for the Oscars, so he's throwing a viewing party at their apartment in Sydney for friends and family instead. Even though the time difference means they'll be watching the festivites around lunchtime, she told us tuxedos will be required! Join our viewing party on Sunday when PopSugar's live coverage of the Oscars kicks off at 5:30 p.m. EST/2:30 p.m. PST.
