Oscars: Helen Mirren, Channing Tatum, Gerard Butler party for 'The Fighter'
Helen Mirren, Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan, Gerard Butler, Malin Akerman and nominee Amy Adams turned up at Hollywood's new fresh market joint District on Monday to kick off a week of events as part of VF's Campaign Hollywood -- specifically in celebration of the nominated flick "The Fighter."
Mirren was the belle of the ball, donning a prop championship belt around her waist as she buzzed about the venue, chatting up producers and procuring her own hors d'oeuvres from the kitchen for director husband Taylor Hackford, while Cuba Gooding Jr., Dulé Hill and Isabel Lucas chatted nearby.

"True Blood" hunks Ryan Kwanten and Grey Damon circulated, while Adams dutifully greeted producers and admirers of her Mark Wahlberg- and Christian Bale-lead film.
Better late than never was the still-shaggy-haired Butler, rocking a casual track jacket and conversing with Relativity Media's Tucker Tooley.
Sound like a decent Academy Awards kickoff? Tell us in comments.
