2008 NYC Oscar® Party to Be Held at The Carlyle
NEW YORK, NY(RUSHPRNEWS) January 2, 2008— On Oscar Night®, Sunday, February 24, 2008, New York-area members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will celebrate the 80th Academy Awards® at The Carlyle, the legendary Manhattan hotel that stands at the corner of 76th Street and Madison Avenue.

Since 1990, the Academy has hosted a New York Oscar Night celebration for its East Coast members, many of whom are previous winners and nominees. This will mark the first year that the annual party, organized by the Academy’s New York Events Committee, will be held at The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel.
“Of the many storied hotels and restaurants in Manhattan, few have a closer connection to Hollywood’s heart and soul than The Carlyle hotel and Café Carlyle,” noted Bud Rosenthal, the chair of the Academy’s New York Events Committee. A familiar venue for New York’s entertainment elite since the 1930s, The Carlyle has served as a home away from home for countless movie stars, U.S. presidents and international artists, and has been the site of several film productions. “The Academy’s East Coast members will be treated to a memorable Oscar Night in a stunning art deco setting.”
The evening’s festivities will begin with a cocktail reception in the re-launched Café Carlyle, which since its original opening in 1955 has earned a reputation for intimate cabaret and jazz performances by legendary performers. Following cocktails, the invited guests will adjourn to the Trianon Suite for a multi-course dinner and live viewing of the Academy Awards telecast. Executive chef James Sakatos will create the menu.
New York’s Oscar Night party is open to all Academy members who reside on the East Coast or who might be visiting at that time. For more information about the event, call (212) 821-9255.
Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2007 will be presented on Sunday, February 24, 2008, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center®, and televised live by the ABC Television Network beginning at 5 p.m. PT. The Oscar presentation also will be televised live in more than 200 countries worldwide.
