ABC’s Good Morning America covers this party from inside and said. ” Voting Academy members flock to the Night of 100 Stars and we are here tonight with many former Oscar and Golden Globe winners. Is this an Oscar party or the Golden Globes?” The Jimmy Kimmel Show tapes segments here for the show and said, ” …a wild party with mostly celebrities and they are everywhere you look..and they have the most beautiful girls”. The Hollywood Reporter says, ” Numerous former Academy Award winners and nominees turned out Sunday during the Night of 100 Stars Oscar Gala..including (150 stars) Richard Dreyfuss, Martin Landau, Chevy Chase, Fred Willard, James Cromwell, Ron Perlman, Renee Taylor, Jon Voight, and so many more.”
