Javier Bardem at pre-Oscars party
Javier Bardem and Jennifer Lawrence swapped the deprivation of their Oscar-nominated films for the luxury of a pre-awards party in an LA penthouse.
The two actors, who are expected to turn out for the Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday, celebrated the nominations for Biutiful and Winter's Bone respectively, at a party at LA's Soho House.
Jennifer's Winter's Bone co-star John Hawkes and the film's writer-director Debra Granik were also at the bash, as was Biutiful's writer-director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.
Party guest also included David O. Russell, nominated for best director for The Fighter, and last year's best director Kathryn Bigelow.
Biutiful,which tells the story of a dying man trying to leave a legacy for those he loves, is up for best foreign-language film. Javier, its star, is nominated for best actor. Winter's Bone, about a girl unraveling the mystery of her father's disappearance in the rural Ozarks, is nominated for best picture and best adapted screenplay, along with first-time acting nods for Jennifer and John.
