New York Decides to Throw Oscar Party After All
Adam Moss & co. wait out Writers Guild strike.
In the rarified air of magazine party throwers, Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter is a sort of aristocratic Hugh Hefner. As such, Carter made headlines a few weeks ago for his decision to cancel his annual Oscar party out of respect for the Writers Guild strike. But now—with the writers back to work—it appears Carter pulled the plug too soon.
Enter New York magazine, which for the past two years has thrown a lesser known, decidedly low-key Oscar viewing party in New York. After weeks of internal wavering, editor Adam Moss and David Edelstein, the magazine’s chief film critic, have decided to make a go of it.
