|Elton 'blown away' by Oscar party
Tuesday, March 9 2010
Elton John and David Furnish have played host to some of the world's top stars at Hollywood's biggest Oscar viewing party.
The couple's Aids fundraiser has become a staple for all those without an invite to the ceremony itself and this year's guest list read like a who's who guide to the entertainment world's biggest names.
Representing the Brits were the likes of Victoria Beckham, Mel B, Amanda Holden, Sharon and Kelly Osbourne, Katie Price and Simon Cowell. "I'm so blown away this year, it's fantastic," Elton said ahead of the celebrations. "It's our stable fundraiser for the whole year, this is by far the most important, it gets us the most publicity and it raises the most money. It's hard work because you have to walk around shaking hands with everyone but when we go home and it's all finished we've met people and we've seen great entertainment close up."
Elton added he and his partner were always anxious that the night should go perfectly. "It's something we look forward to but we're also a bit wary of as it's your baby and you want it to go well. "The best part is when you go home at night and you think 'we did a good job'."
