NBC U’s Globes party a tented success

'Avatar,' Scorsese draw attendees' attention

One of the event organizers said the key to making the NBC/Universal/Focus rooftop party a success on a rainy night is “we tented everything from here to Century City.”

It certainly was a tent of almost Ringling Bros. magnitude that housed multiple sushi bars, a dance floor and 600 guests. Among them was Universal Pictures chairman Adam Fogelson, who said a key part of the evening was “I got to sit with Paul McCartney. Nothing I’ve ever done has impressed my 5-year-old daughter so much.”

Co-chairman Donna Langley said, “Any night that has , the Edge and keeps the speeches to 90 seconds is a good night for me.”

As at the other parties, the “Avatar” win and the Martin Scorsese tribute were key points in the conversations.

“After seeing the reel of Scorsese’s clips, I’m tendering my resignation tomorrow,” said Focus topper James Schamus. “It shows you what talent in this business can achieve.”
