Compared to last year’s extravagant event, this year’s Oscar party hosted by TheOneRing.net was a much more casual and low key event. That didn’t stop us from putting on our wannabe-red-carpet outfits and braving the traffic in Los Angeles! Apparently, all the streets are closed when the celebrities are strutting their way down the red carpet. This year’s party was held at the Cat & Fiddle pub and restaurant, just a few blocks away from the ceremony.
The first part of the Space Pirate Queen’s and my epic Tolkien themed Oscar evening can be read here. This part, the second part, is about the live performances and guest appearances that followed the oh so delicious buffet and open bar at the American Legion Hall on Oscar Sunday. Yet again, this fantastic event was hosted by TheOneRing.net.
Ahh yes, Billy Boyd and Dominic Monaghan. The Space Pirate Queen and I are quite the Merry and Pippin fans, so seeing these two on stage interacting with each other was an absolute treat. As always, they were both delightful and thoroughly entertaining. I felt like it was 2003 again. Sigh.
