To Support Writers, Vanity Fair Cancels Oscar Party

Posted on February 5, 2008

In support of the striking writers, Vanity Fair has canceled its annual Oscar party.
Here's the magazine's statement: "After much consideration, and in support of the writers and everyone else affected by this strike, we have decided that this is not the appropriate year to hold our annual Oscar party. We want to congratulate all of this year's nominees and we look forward to hosting our 15th Oscar party next year." This year's fete was supposed to be held at Craft.
Apparently the Vanity Fair editors don't think that the strike will have ended before the Oscars. Interesting.
