The Week Hosts Academy Awards Bash

The Kalorama manse of lobbyist Juleanna Glover played host to The Week‘s first annual Academy Awards party last night.  Complete with Oscar-shaped cookies, popcorn and tuxedo-clad servers passing trays of Junior Mints, Milk Duds and Redvines, the event was a perfect balance of festive glitz and a casual night at the movies.

Despite the all-star lineup of party hosts (Ron Bonjean, Tammy Haddad, Juleanna Glover and Karen Finney), the fete was not over-attended, offering around 100 guests a relaxed atmosphere to mix, mingle and eat their weight in miniature grilled cheese sandwiches* (see: me).  Spotted taking in the festivities were FD’s Mary Kathryn Covert and Michael Steel, CNN’s Brianna Keilar, Sam Dealey of Qorvis, Sarah Bonjean, Janet Donovan, NRSC’s Brian WalshLynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times, soon-to-be USA Today‘s Jackie Kucinich, Doug Heye, The Hill‘s Emily Goodin, Mark Paustenbach, Glenn Ballard, Pepper Watkins, Jay Newton-Small, Jeremy Bash of the CIA, Barbara Martin, Becca Glover Watkins, Kimball Stroud, Washington Life‘s Kevin Chaffee, WaPo‘s Jonathan Capehart, Daily Caller’s Megan Mulligan,  UrbanDaddy’s Jeff Dufour and an uber-preggers Jayne Sandman.

At The Palm restaurant Thursday night, Washingtonians came out to toast Katherine O’Hearn, who has taken a new position at ABC News.

Attendees: Katherine O’Hearn, Tammy Haddad, Betsy Fischer, Pam Stevens, Emily Lenzner, John P. Coale, Jeremy Bash, Mike Allen, Steve McMahon, Jessica Yellin, Hilary Rosen, Ed Henry, Michael Feldman.

Topics discussed:

  • What are sexually charged television terms? Nominees: “Firm offer.” “Late night pull out.” “Deep tease.” “Hard out.” And the Sunday producer classic: “How could they be doing them when they should be doing me?”

  • Mike Allen‘s classic line: Although the newspaper industry may be dying, “if you’ve got the love, then love is never a dying industry.”

  • Why was there a PowerPoint presentation taking place in the same restaurant on the topic of “Mycardial ischemia Safety Data for Avandia”?
