Last Night’s Oscar Party: Spotted Pig Overrun By Awkward Media Types, Fake Celebrities

In our last Oscar-related post of the day (we promise this time), we felt we ought to write something about the little shindig New York mag threw at the Spotted Pig last night.

Because, despite the unwelcome combination of blizzard and high-heeled shoes, we actually had ourselves a pretty good time.

In addition to rubbing elbows with (read: literally rubbing elbows with, not actually speaking to) Liev Schrieber, we had the pleasure of sampling a delectable array of hors doeuvres and watching a bunch of awkward media types attempt to flirt with one another after gulping down free wine and ginger martinis.

The biggest name in attendance had to be Senator Chuck Schumer, who loudly explained that Hillary Clinton’s perceived bitchiness is all just a big MSM misunderstanding. “You’d like her if you got to know her,” the senator boomed. “She’s a whole lot more likable in person than she seems in the press.”

And, one would hope, a better dresser. (ZING!)

Anyhow, after we’d tired of listening (fine, overhearing) Chuck extol the virtues of his pants-suit-loving colleague, we found ourselves highly amused by the rampant instances of journalists’ imaginations run amok.

Was that grey-haired gent in the corner table Graydon Carter? (He wasn’t). Look, it’s Eva Longoria! (Real identity: CNN’s news hottie, Kiera Chetry). And who would have thought Chris Maloney would show up? (The real Maloney was holding court with Chris Noth at Elaine’s). Wait, could it be that Jimmy Fallon has graced us with his unfunny presence? (Nope, just his doppelganger from 30 Rock.)

Sigh.

But in the end, a good time was had by all (except those who ate the horrific prune/bacon concoction). And so we made the rounds, schmoozed with the gossips and the bloggers, and even saw a minute or two of the actual awards ceremony before it was time to (drunkenly) stumble homeward.

Thanks for the memories, New York. And Chuck? We’ll see you next year.*

*Unless we (finally) get invited to Elaine’s.
