On the 21st February the much-awaited award ceremony ‘The Toscars’ will be held at Hollywood’s premier venue The Supperclub. Non other than the Queen’s favorite British comedian and BAFTA winner Jim Tavare will host this fun filled event, which has been rumored to be the most fun attendees will have during the awards season! A panel of celebrity experts will judge the short parodies of the 9 Oscar nominated films including multiple EMMY winner and Oscar writer Bruce Vilanch, one of Hollywood’s favorite TV and Film stars Skeet Ulrich and 80’s icon Siobhan Fahey from Bananarama.
The glamorous red carpet awards ceremony ‘The Toscars’ is now in it’s 5th year and will benefit The Actors Fund. As soon as the 2012 Oscar nominees for best picture were announced, plots were written, actors were cast and it was time for ‘lights, camera, action’ to film these humorous parodies. Last year ‘The King Speak’ took the Toscar. Other coveted awards are given to the best ‘Whactress’ or ‘Whactor’ of the night. Actors starring in the films are from hits like True Blood, NCIS:LA, Fringe, Desperate Housewives and a special aerial Performance by cirque artist Michael Lipari is set to wow the audience.
Previous years have seen British celebrities Michael Sheen, Luke Evans and Chris O’Dowd enjoy in the festivities. This year will be bigger and better then ever. Who will win the 2012 Toscar and be gifted the golden fist? We will find out on February 21st.
