The Vanity Fair Oscar party was, this year more than ever, the center of the celebrity vortex, devouring other party-throwers Prince, Elton John, Madonna and adorable twitterering couple Demi and Ashton.

  • Everyone wanted to be at Vanity Fair's Oscar party, even people the magazine has slammed in print. People left Madonna, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher's party early to attend. And Prince gave up on his own party, moving it to a nightclub. [P6]
  • Elton John went to the Vanity Fair Oscar party. It's not clear if he also attended the Elton John Oscar party. He was joined by a drinking-and-swaying Natalie Portman and a comedy clique of Sacha Baron Cohen, Jimmy Kimmel, Sarah Silverman, Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill, who made jokes about pot, Jewish culture and masturbation.
