Behind-the scenes players party on down

Golden Trailers fete 'Knight,' ADG holds 75th anni bash

Hollywood’s behind-the-scenes players honored themselves last week.

On Thursday, the Golden Trailers opted for a knockout party for the trailer industry’s biggest night, honoring the best work of the year by looping the nominees on screens scattered around the event, held at a Bel Air estate.

Best in show, the org’s top prize, went to Open Road Entertainment for its “Dark Knight Rises” teaser, not that many noticed as classical tunes gave way to bumping techno around the pool and live rock on the tennis court out back.

On Saturday, members of the Art Directors Guild were treated to a multi-level cascade of food, drink and back slapping at the Hollywood Museum for the org’s 75th anniversary celebration.

A freight elevator replete with tequila bar, video projection and disco ball whisked guests between the floors of the Max Factor building where they ogled Marilyn Monroe’s tchotchkes while scarfing sushi and margaritas.

The ADG grew out of the Cinema Vendi Club, a fraternal Hollywood order that “was really just a drinking club because of prohibition, and they would sometimes paint naked ladies,” said ADG prexy Tom Walsh.

“Now I understand why I feel at home when I go to the local 800,” quipped IATSE veep Michael Miller.
