Will Kate Winslet go zero for six or snag her first Oscar for The Reader? Will broken piece of meat, Mickey Rourke, finally be recognized as a Hamlet rather than a ham for his role in The Wrestler? Or will Slumdog Millionaire win Best Picture honors during the 81st annual Academy Awards? Were sure hoping the delightful rags-to-riches flick becomes this years upset story. Instead of watching the drama unfold on the tube, why not get spiffed up in a tux or a ball gown this Sunday night and slink over to the Paris Theater to pretend youre starring in the Tinseltown gala. Oscar Night America SoBe Style is Miamis only official Oscar shindig, and Food Networks Bobby Flay and actress Stephanie March will host it.
At 6:30 p.m., walk the red carpet and toast wannabe A-listers during a swank Moët & Chandon reception while DJ Pete gets the party started. At 8, become part of a live telecast on WPLGs Local 10 as host Laurie Jennings channels Ryan Seacrests witty repartee.
