This seems like an odd group of people to be hosting a party for "The King's Speech". Who knows if it's true:


We hear

That rock legend Mick Jagger, along with Renée Zellweger, Quentin Tarantino, Jennifer Lopez, Ridley Scott and Gerard Butler, will host a party in honor of multi-Oscar nominated "The King's Speech" at Hollywood's Chateau Marmont tonight . . .

Aren't the Weinsteins involved with The Kings Speech?

I think you are right DK. And the Weinstein Co. is in talks to buy the distribution rights for Coriolanus, so I can see him getting an invite but the hosting part seemed odd to me. And JLo's involvement (and Mick Jaggar's as well) is just odd to me. I don't know where Renee fits either as a co-host.

Maybe they asked Firth, Rush, Bonham-Carter etc to each choose a fwiend/esteemed colleague to co-host???

I can see Colin Firth as a secret Stones fan. Head banger.

I'm wondering about JLo too. Maybe there's a future project under the Weinsteins.

Colin Firth was in Bridget Jones with Renee Z, maybe that's why she was there, but I agree with Nay, I think Colin Firth could be a secret head-banger too.

Who do you think invited GB? Again, maybe something to do with Coriolanus.

Strange bedfellows, indeed.

The NY Post calls them "hosts". But all other articles seem to just list them as "guests" attending the event. So who knows which is correct.

“The King’s Speech” Audi Party Draws Out the Stars

It was a big night at the Chateau Marmont as many of Tinseltown’s best and brightest showed up for the Audi Celebrates “The King’s Speech” awards season party.

Colin Firth and Orlando Bloom hammed it up for the paparazzi as they mingled with fellow guests throughout the evening.

Also in the house were Alexander Skarsgard and Kate Bosworth, Michelle Williams, Busy Phillips, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, Gerard Butler, Amanda Seyfried, Renee Zellweger, and Cory Monteith.

“The King’s Speech” is about King George VI and his struggle to overcome a stammering issue. Queen Elizabeth saw the flick and according to a source, “She found it moving and enjoyable. She was clearly amused by some of the lighter moments.”

Enjoy the pictures from the Audi Celebrates "The King's Speech" Awards Season Party (February 7).

Renee Zellweger and Gerard Butler party with Colin Firth


What I wouldn’t have done to be part of a Bridget Jones reunion! Colin Firth was joined by his former co-star Renee Zellweger at the Audi celebrates “The King’s Speech” awards season party held at the Chateau Marmont on Monday, February 7, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.

Also in attendance were new papi Orlando Bloom and papi chulo Gerard Butler. Isn’t it fab to see how everyone is honoring The King’s Speech and just how close it is to winning Academy Award gold? There is definitely hardcore competition in both the Best Actor and Best Movie categories but I think they have a solid chance of taking it all.

P.S. I think we are due for some Bridget Jones 3 rumors right about now. Just because you are winning all these awards Mr. Firth doesn’t mean you can’t put on your Darcy Christmas jumper on one more time.

Mick Jagger Gives “The King’s Speech” Some Satisfaction

Awards season in Hollywood and New York is still going on for front runners “The Social Network and “The King’s Speech. ” Tomorrow night in New York, Tina Brown is hosting an A list cocktail party for the “Network” team. Hopefully, producer Scott Rudin will be well enough to attend and welcome star guests like Marlo Thomas and Phil Donahue. Last night in Hollywood: an eclectic group of celebs starting with rock stars like Mick Jagger, Lenny Kravitz, and Marc Anthony and JLO, toasted “The King’s Speech” gang (Firth, Rush, Hooper) at the Chateau Marmont. The Audi sponsored get together included an invite to nominees from all 10 Best Picture candidates who’d been at the Academy nominees lunch earlier that day. Jane Fonda and Richard Perry, Renee Zellweger, “Blue Valentine” nominee Michelle Williams with bff Busy Phillips (they were on “Dawson’s Creek” together), cast members from “Glee” (Cory Montieth) and “Modern Family,” (Jesse Tyler Ferguson). Mickey and Jan Rooney, Don Rickles–yes Don Rickles!, Nikki Haskell, and Lucy Punch helped give nominee Geoffrey Rush a send off to New York where he starts his play, “Diary of a Mad Man,” at BAM on Friday night. (Rush will get a big welcome tonight in New York for his acclaimed stage performance transferring from Australia.)

There were lots of reunions, too: actor brothers Keith and Robert Carradine were on hand. And a bevy of actors who worked in classic Miramax films were there like Minnie Driver and Stellan Skarsgard (with son Alex, the hot star of “True Blood”) from “Good Will Hunting”; Timothy Spall from “The King’s Speech” and “Love’s Labours Lost”; plus Anthony LaPaglia, Amanda Seyfried, “Lord of the Rings” guys Orlando Bloom, Billy Boyd and Dominic Monaghan, Elizabeth Banks, Gerard Butler, Jennifer Beals, Jeremy Piven, and Brit superstar Anthony Andrews, who’s in “TKS” but is fondly remembered here for “Brideshead Revisited.”

Academy Awards Nomination Inside Industry Party with Colin Firth for The KING’S SPEECH

On the evening of Monday 7th February, I attended the Chateau Marmont in celebration of the Academy nomination for The King’s Speech. While it was clear that the Weinstein Company were the backbone of this event, the invitation told me a team of respected actors, directors and musicians were the real hosts. Their names included Quentin Tarantino, Amanda Seyfried, Renee Zellweger, Mick Jagger, Ridley Scott and Gerard Butler.

Like is the case with many industry events, I would hazard a guess that a good number of the guests had no idea why they were there. In their defense, the invitation was a little confusing, with a long list of hosts muddling the evening’s central theme. Admittedly, while I understood that we were celebrating The King’s Speech nominations, I knew that there had to be a more industrial purpose for such a soirée. Luckily, I had my trusty friend Quentin there to give me the lowdown on the true purpose to the party.

He kindly explained that events such as this are put on to garner enthusiasm for the nominated film and its cast and crew. Hopefully encouraging those with voting power in the Academy to vote for one film over another. The hosts are there to act as lobbyists, if you like, for the nominated film. Quentin explained how the Weinstein Company had kindly hosted similar events for his film, Inglorious Basterds, when it was up for nomination the year before, and so he enjoyed repaying the favor and being a host for their contender this year.


And what a wonderful host he was.

I am not simply being a loyal friend when I say that Quentin Tarantino was the perfect host. He makes working a room look like anything but work. Floating from one attendee to the next, he establishes smooth conversation, relevant to the person in front of him. Quentin has genuine appreciation for the Academy and the process by which a film garners interest. Needless to say, I couldn’t help but be impressed.


Gerard Butler, another host for the evening, is usually brilliant at commanding attention and entertaining the crowd. However at this event, he seemed rather serious, not the normal Jerry that I know. I noticed how he stayed in one place for much of the evening, which meant that a crowd formed around him, rather than him circulating the crowd.

The youngest host for the evening was Amanda Seyfreid who attended with her dashing beau, Ryan Phillippe. I noticed her only briefly as she was leaving. Jennifer Lopez, a usual favorite of mine for her graciousness and generosity, also kept a low profile.

Renee Zellweger, who is known for her fabulous sense of fashion, looked radiant in a beautifully fitted red dress. Sadly though, she was also a rather reclusive host. Sans Bradley Cooper, she took to sitting in one place, taking the full attention of her Bridget Jones Diary co-star Colin Firth. To make matters worse, once Colin left her side to talk to other attendees, she left the party for good. Perhaps, for some A-List stars, hosting for them is like Jury Service for the rest of us.


Colin Firth, who was the star of the film and of the evening, was his usual charming self. I have special admiration for him at the moment, as his life must be somewhat surreal during this particular Awards Season. Post Renee’s departure, his social agenda was mercilessly shepherded by a rather mission-orientated publicist. I was fortunate enough to catch a moment with him, where we re-kindled our conversation regarding his pocket-accoutrement. His parting words to me were, “If I’m wearing a tux, I carry a silk pocket square, but if the lady I’m with were to cry on a night such a this, then I can only offer her cotton.”

I also had a chance to speak with Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgard, whom I found to be delightful. Like Colin he was relaxed and charming, making conversation effortless.
An encounter with similar positive energy was one with The King’s Speech director, Tom Hooper who attended with actor Timothy Spall. An incredible British thespian, Tim played the role of Winston Churchill in the film. I wondered if he was still holding onto part of his character as I looked down to notice that he was wearing the most wonderfully, eye-catching black and white matt brogues; precisely the kind of fabulous footwear that my former Prime Minister would have been proud to have worn.

I had a very enjoyable evening and was very appreciative to both Harvey Weinstein for being such a pleasant host, and to dear Quentin for explaining the point of an Academy Nomination Celebration, in such a clear and concise fashion. At the end of the night, after observing all the other hosts, I was slightly uncertain if they understood their role quite as clearly. Perhaps Quentin needs to have a talk with them too?

This is a very insightful peak into the event. But it makes you really wonder if GB, RZ etc. actually wanted to do 'their job' as co-hosts. I'm not suggesting dramas behind the scenes, just observing that schmoozing on professional occasions is an important part of the chosen lifestyle.

That is what I was thinking after reading all the articles. I know Ridley Scott is working on a major film, and looking to fill a few casting spots. I'm sure there are a ton of connections we just don't know about, but will hear in the future.

It can mean Mack Daddy, Pimp Daddy etc. Or Papi chulo/Mami chula -term of endearment usually used to a partner (spouse, boyfriend, girlfriend)

Because it's written by Rosy, from Miami, it probably means this:

Used mostly by Puerto Ricans, Mexicans, Cubans, Dominicans and other spanish speakers:

This word is mainly used to describe or address a man who is attractive.
