Oscars: At Elton John's Academy Awards party, Chris Colfer is this year's Betty White
The Ministry is posted up at Sir Elton's annual Oscars viewing party, a chic soiree at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, and we're doing the math on the bold-faced names in attendance.
Every year, Elton and partner David Furnish populate their table -- clearly No. 1, but technically table No. 43 -- with a face that has defined the year's entertainment zeitgeist. In 2010, it was Betty White; this time, it's Chris Colfer. What a feather in the "Glee" star's Golden Globe-winning cap.
Table No. 35 is where the boys are -- hot young single guys including Matthew Morrison, Chace Crawford, JC Chasez and Sean Pyfrom of "Desperate Housewives."
Fabulous couples are sprinkled throughout as well, such as a stunning Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy, and a super sweet Dave Annable and Odette Yustman.
Also watching the awards with Elton: Steven Tyler, John Waters, Hayden Panettiere and Cheyenne Jackson.
Stay with The Ministry for updates on big winners and the best parties.
