Vanity Fair soiree honors Oscar nominee
Vanity Fair’s Campaign Hollywood Week kicked off Monday with a soiree at District on Sunset in honor of “The Fighter.” The event benefitted Communities in Schools, whose director of development is Deborah Marcus. She’s married to Andrew B. Marcus, chief operating officer of Relativity Media, which produced the Oscar-nommed pic.
“A lot of the kids that we work with aren’t going to go to college or a four-year school, but if they’re passionate about boxing or something else, there are roads (they can take), and that’s what we help them identify,” said Deborah Marcus.
With the ballots in, Oscar nominee Amy Adams welcomed the end of the lengthy awards season.
“It’s great for the industry because it brings attention to smaller films, but as an individual, it can be somewhat exhausting,” said the thesp. “It’s a nice problem to have, though. You always think you know what the ride will be like, but from my experience, it’s a different ride every time.”
