Three Dollar Bill Oscar Party

Who says Seattle can’t get fancy? For the sixth year running, Three Dollar Bill Cinema and the Gay City Health Project are throwing the city’s biggest Oscar party. The show will be projected on the big screen; hors d’oeuvres, popcorn, and soda will be on hand; and yes, there will be a red carpet (one that you can dress for without fear of Joan Rivers picking on you; though you can watch her on E!). My questions for this year's telecast: Will Tilda Swinton again resemble an androgynous alien? Will anyone wear a dress made out of a swan or credit cards? Will Miley Cyrus somehow find a way to get invited? And when Natalie Portman presumably receives her Black Swan Oscar, can she not mention her sex life in her acceptance speech or laugh that awful laugh? Ticket proceeds benefit the hosts, and there are prizes, too! Top draw in the raffle is a six-night stay in Cabo San Lucas; runner-up prizes include staycations at hotels here in town. ERIN K.
