TMZ Sports – Oscar time in L.A. ain’t just for the (white) movie stars … some of the biggest names in sports come out too .. and they were looking their best Sunday night.
Serena Williams, Aaron Rodgers, Robert Kraft and GRONK all took part in the Tinseltown festivities … most opting for the Vanity Fair after-party in Beverly Hills.
Busted Coverage – It was a big night for the NFL at the Oscars thanks to Aaron Rodgers and Robert Kraft taking their girlfriends — Olivia Munn & Ricki Noel Lander — out for a date night at the big awards show. Actually, I’m not even sure if Kraft bothered going to the actual awards show. He’s usually an awards party kinda guy. And for the last few years, Noel Lander has been on his arm at all of them [including] the Elton John Oscars party.
Other Elton partygoers included: Caitlyn, Boy George, Gene Simmons, Charlie Sheen and Mariah Carey.
Just as I suspected. In the Millennium of the Masshole, you couldn’t throw a self-respecting Oscars party without a bunch of Patriots, just like you couldn’t hold an Academy Awards without all the major ones involving Bostonians. Hollywood can’t pretend it’s still relevant without getting Rob Gronkowski, Mr. Kraft and his honey there.
I know Gronk has said before Margot Robbie is number one on his sexual bucket list, so while I haven’t heard whether he checked the box on that, I’ll just assume he did because why wouldn’t she? Regardless, he makes all of show business credible just by his very presence.
And Elton John knows better than to ever throw a party without having Mr. Kraft there. Otherwise he’s got to sit there like the rush chairman at a loser frat, making small talk with has-beens like Boy George, Gene Simmons and Charlie Sheen. He and Ricki Noel Lander are the only “It” couple with enough “It” to compete with Tom and Gisele. Without them, your guest list is no better than the cast list from “Celebrity Apprentice.”
So sure, maybe the Academy Awards are run by a bunch of discriminating racists, but to their credit, at least they understand they need Massholes.
