Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder toast their Oscar Sunday with champagne! Hey there, I'm Karli Bulnes, and we've got all the hot couples action in today's PopSugar Rush. "I think I'm going to drink champagne, I need a night off." Ian Somerhalder got into the Oscar spirit with plans to toss back a glass of champagne on a rare night off from work. The Vampire Diaries star kicked off the big award show weekend with a solo appearance at the Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday. But by Sunday, he had girlfriend and costar Nina Dobrev by his side at Elton John's Oscar viewing party, where she told reporters she was also in a champagne state of mind... Ms. Dobrev even admitted that sipping on some bubbly made it a bit harder to get in her gown quickly. "I think a little bit longer because my friends were there and we were watching the red carpet and sipping champagne and having a good time." Nina wowed in a daring J. Mendel dress and heels, but she told reporters the stillettos wouldn't be staying on too long. "As soon as I get back in the car I'm putting flip flops back on." Fellow onscreen vampires and real-life couple Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer also attended Elton's bash, as did a glamorous Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth, and dapper duo Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka. But it was Elton and his partner who Sarah Hyland was in awe of: "It's Elton John!" "We talked to cohosts Elton John and David Furnish who were excited to be celebrating the 20th anniversary of this event." "It's been an amazing, quick ride, doesn't seem like 20 years. 300 more people here this year than last year, we're getting bigger and bigger which means we raise more money and the money gets to the people who really need it." Our cameras also captured newly single ladies Katy Perry, Heidi Klum, and Kim Kardashian, as well as a pregnant Alessandra Ambrosio, slipping inside for the charitable event. Elton's 20th annual party raised five and a quarter million dollars for the fight against HIV and AIDS.
