Gotham-based production banner SenArt Films rolled out the red carpet one more time Thursday to celebrate its multiple honorees “The Station Agent” and “The Fog of War,” and add a final prize to the awards haul.
“Really we’re here because we’re raising funds for the National Republican Committee,” said host Robert May of SenArt, offering something of an obligatory April Fools joke before doling out living topiary replicas of the company logo.
“This is kind of cool because it’s a way to say goodbye and thank you to this movie,” “Station Agent” star Patricia Clarkson said. “This is our swan song.”
Event served also to inaugurate the rooftop Loft bar at the Hotel Ganesvoort, the new Meat Packing District hot spot that opened its doors last week.
In between passing around the Oscar won by Errol Morris‘ “Fog of War,” guests braved the chilly wind on the balcony to gaze down on the now-dwarfed SoHo House pool deck across the street.
Also on hand were “Station Agent” writer-director Tom McCarthy, stars Peter Dinklage and Michelle Williams and producers Mary Jane Skalski and Kathryn Tucker; and “Fog of War” producer Michael Williams. Latter also is an exec producer on Bravo’s “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy,” whose frontmen Carson Kressley, Kyan Douglas, Ted Allen and Thom Filicia attended.
Morris sent regards from Boston, where he was shooting a commercial: “I would rather be eaten alive by a pack of wolverines than go to another party.”
