After the first course, Co-Presidents and Co-Founders of Sony Pictures Classics, Tom Bernard and Michael Barker, gave a nice speech congratulating all three films and everyone involved.

Recording Artist, Olivia Somerlyn, wowed the crowd with her acoustic version of U2’s “Ordinary Love.” At the end of the evening, STK Pastry Chef, Brigette Contreras, presented specialty Blue Jasmine Macaroons to Cate Blanchett who was delighted to try more than one.
Notable guests in attendance included Cate Blanchett, Sally Hawkins, Julie Delpy, Co-Presidents and Co-Founders of Sony Pictures Classics, Tom Bernard and Michael Barker and singer Olivia Somerlyn.
Cate Blanchett looked stunning in a Stella McCartney one shoulder black jumper. She joked with guests mentioning she was going to wear Crocs on the Red Carpet tomorrow. When asked what she thought STK stood for, she laughed and said Salad, Tofu, Ketchup? Continuing the evening in her playful mood, she crawled under the dinner table to not bother her guests when she had to leave
First time Oscar Nominee, Sally Hawkins, brought her parents to the dinner and doted on them the entire evening. She looked very fit in her grey Mulberry dress, only eating steamed vegetables at dinner and staying away from carbs
Two time Spirit Award nominee, Julie Delpy, rocked the Red Carpet in her sass & bide one piece outfit. She dressed it with a tweed Chanel jacket and Chanel pumps. Guests overheard her mentioning she had to run out to attend a few more parties.
