Glenn Close, Regina King, Marina de Tavira and Yalitza Aparicio took time to drop into the 12th annual Women in Film Oscar Nominees Party.
“This is an amazing night,” said the event’s co-host, Cathy Schulman, in her official welcome to guests. “There are 61 female nominees this year. … An all-time high.” An Oscar winner herself for “Crash,” she then cited 17 repeat nominees and three women now up for two Academy Awards this year.
Held Friday at the private club Spring Place in Beverly Hills, Women in Film’s pre-Oscars affair honored female Academy Award contenders, both in front of and behind the cameras, including producers, screenwriters, sound mixers, editors, makeup artists, hairstylists and others.
