Oscar Sunday

The 83rd annual Academy Awards is set for Sunday night, as actors such as Colin Firth and Javier Bardem; Natalie Portman and Michelle Williams duke it out for Oscar fame. But it's the parties before and after the show that we really care about!

We hear many of L.A.'s swankiest hotels will host parties, including Shutters on the Beach, W Hollywood, The Beverly Hills Hotel and the Sunset Tower Hotel.

The L.A. Times—of course—has a great roundup of the weekend festivities.
