Just got back from the Vanity Fair/Fox Searchlight/Belvedere party in honour of Black Swan, 127 Hours, Conviction and Never Let Me Go and it was a huge celeb affair. It felt like the next best thing to an Oscar party with the amount of talent that turned up. James Franco, Hilary Swank, Carey Mulligan, Marion Cotillard, Sam Rockwell, Minnie Driver, Andrew Garfield, Danny Boyle, Thandie Newton, and Juliette Lewis were just some of the stars spotted here at the Thompson hotel. The real-life Betty Anne Waters and her BF (played by Hilary Swank and Minnie Driver respectively in Conviction) were also there. As was Aron Ralston, the man Franco’s 127 Hours is based on. Carey Mulligan had the best frock and Franco was by far the best eye candy. Sadly, none of the cast from Black Swan made it. Rumour has it they’re not landing in T.O until tomorrow. At any rate, this bash was the perfect way to cap off night 3 of TIFF.
