Who is in LA for the Oscars? Can't Post

Does anyone know how many Hobbit people are expected at the Oscars? Obviously the people up for technical awards will be there, but has anyone heard if PJ is going?

Among the actors, Graham McTavish and Martin Freeman are both in LA - Graham has tweeted about attending a pre-Oscars party at the British consulate

and Martin was at the Shorts Awards on Friday where he won the Visionary Actor Award.

Incidentally, another film that Martin appeared in last year, The Pirates! is up for an Oscar for best animated film.

Has anyone heard if any more of the cast will be attending?

I have not heard [In reply to] Can't Post

But I doubt they would indicate if anyone significant from the cast was attending. well maybe they would. PJ showed up for ROTK and I'm sure he is busy working on DoS and not able to be here. I am in CA but cannot go due to time constraints with my job so I will be watching the online feed. Sure would be nice to have Martin and Graham show up but if not, maybe one of the next two. I am sure the party will be a rocking good time no matter who shows up as TORN puts on the best parties! Don't party with the stuffy studio execs...party with the people that are moving the train down the tracks!

Presumably some of the production team folks. [In reply to] Can't Post

Weta animation supervisor Dave Clayton is there, according to this article.. Weta's up for not one, not two, but 3 Visual Effects Oscars, for The Hobbit, The Avengers and Prometheus.

And he says he's going to the TORn party!
