Elton John on the Oscars: "Remember Those Who Aren't Living a Glamorous Life"

Elton John's Oscars party brings in loads of celebrities who don't make it to the actual show. And while the party is full of delicious food, extravagant decorations, and a spectacular live performance — this year, they took it back to the '70s with the classic Nile Rodgers & Chic — the overarching meaning of the night is much more than the Academy Awards.

Elton and his husband, David Furnish, who throw the party each year, give proceeds from ticket sales and donations to The Elton John AIDS Foundation. The nonprofit gives back to AIDS research and patient care.

"It means that we raise money on a night where everyone is having a great time and is not really thinking about the world but thinking about 'fluff' like Oscars," Elton said. "It's a night where we try to remember the people who aren't living a glamorous life, who are suffering, that might be left behind. That we remember them when we're having a joyous time, that we don't forget people who aren't."

The Elton John AIDS Foundation has raised over $321 million for the treatment and prevention of HIV/AIDS.
