Last week amidst the Oscar Celebrations, Hollywood insiders attended a “Dinner With Bevy” ( Hosted of course, by Supreme Hostess & Style Maven, Bevy Smith) in conjunction with The Blackhouse Foundation and sponsored by Sprite in honor of Django Unchained producer, Reginald Hudlin’s Best Picture Academy Award nomination.
Hudlin is only the FOURTH African-American to be nominated in the “Best Picture” category, making Hudlin’s nomination a win in itself. Hudlin has also served as the President of Entertainment for BET, green lighting amazing programing such as The BET Honors! He’s also directed House Party, Boomerang, The Great White Hype, The Ladies Man, and Serving Sara, just to name a few, and is of course, one of the producers of Quentin Tarantino‘s “Django Unchained”.
The room was an amazing lay out of exquisite citrus hues of yellow and green floral arrangements, which paid homage to Sprite’s signature, lemon and lime flavor. In keeping with the fresh yet bold atmosphere of the evening, CORZO tequila created the “Sprite Unchained” a mix of CORZO silver tequila, club soda, Sprite, grapefruit juice with a lime zest float. The guests dined on artisanal bread, Malibu field greens, and Chilean Sea Bass with a dark chocolate entremet for dessert.
The event was held at famed talent agency, CAA and was attended by a plethora of celebrities including rapper/actor, Common, actors, Sanaa Lathan, James Remar, Alfre Woodward, Brandon T. Jackson, Anika Noni Rose, Walton Goggins, Yvette Nicole Brown, Terry Crews, Jordin Sparks and John Witherspoon, Hudlin’s television mentor, writer/producer Steven Bochco, producer of the upcoming Star Wars, Episode VII, JJ Abrams, Dana Walden, chairman of 20th Century Fox, Django soundtrack collaborator Rza, film and tv producer, Suzanne dePasse, Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson, and Hudlin’s “Django Unchained” co-producers, Pilar Savone and Stacy Sher, and Entertainment Impresario, Andre Harrell.
