oscar_ceremony_posters_80.jpgHearsay hopes to have close encounters with all of you this Sunday, Feb. 24, at The D.C. Center's annual Oscar gala, "Glamour, Glitter and Gold"." With the demise of Titan, the event has been moved to The Green Lantern, 1335 Green Court NW, starting at 7 p.m.

Hearsay will be there -- at least for a portion of the evening -- as will Metro Weekly's roving Scene photographer, Ward "Point Me in the Direction of a Mountain" Morrison. Tickets are $25 ($15 for students and seniors) and are availble in advance through Box Office Tickets or at the Green Lantern door on Sunday.

Blair "Is Morning Sickness Contagious?" Michaels returns as hostess of the evening, which will include a buffet (with real food!), festive drinks (is there any other kinds?), an Oscar Raffle Game, in which you can pick your favorites in popular categories for a chance to win big, big prizes (such as VIP Passes to next year's Reel Affirmations film festival or a coveted membership in the D.C. Film Society). Plus, of course, there's the Academy Awards themselves, broadcast on flat screen TVs throughout the bar, upstairs and down.

Proceeds from the evening benefit The Center and its programs, so come watch No Country for Old Men win big time (or so insist Metro Weekly film critics Randy "Bitter Failed Filmmaker" Shulman and Tim "Opinions Are for the Opinionated" Plant) and support our effervescent GLBT community at the same time! This now ends Hearsay's momentary philanthropic lapse. Where's that morning martini?!
