Now that the red carpet is rolled up from Hollywood’s biggest night, we would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all Media Society members and Altar Identity Studio Executive Producers who participated in our 2014 Academy Awards® Viewing Gala.
The show itself was excellent, with Ellen DeGeneres providing an exceptional performance as host. The strong class of films and nominees proved that Hollywood remains the single greatest contributor of quality entertainment for the global audience.
Our viewing gala was special. The rooftop venue at the London Hotel provided a stunning backdrop with views of the Sunset Strip and downtown Los Angeles. Gordon Ramsey’s kitchen provided excellent food and top-notch service. The live music added to the ambiance. The venue, food, cocktails, and show are all special, but what makes an event like this most memorable is the group of wonderful individuals who attend. Attendees from every corner of the country descended on The London, and celebrated with each other their passion for film and entertainment.
My evening at the Academy Awards Viewing Gala was extremely rewarding. I felt very special from the time I arrived until the last “Good-bye”. Not only was the food unique and delicious, but I was elated to be able to bond and exchange valuable information with fellow members…the night was positively exciting.
As we spent the night celebrating Hollywood’s greats, we were also able to take a moment to honor Media Society and Altar Identity Studios’ Oscar-winning and nominated partners. Attendees were given a glimpse into some Behind-the-Scenes of our latest film production Big Stone Gap, produced by Oscar-winning producer Donna Gigliotti, and staring Ashley Judd, Patrick Wilson, Whoopi Goldberg, Jenna Elfman, and an all-star cast. Combined, the Big Stone Gap team and talent have been nominated for 5 Oscars, with 2 wins. Our Altar Identity Executive Producers in attendance were thrilled by a personal video “Thank You” from Jenna and Whoopi, which was a treat to experience.
Thank you again to all who made the Viewing Gala a special evening. We look forward to creating memories with you at our next event.
