Lexus and UPTOWN Magazine once again collaborated to present what has quickly become one of the award season’s must-attend events with last week’s 2015 UPTOWN PRE-OSCAR PARTY, which took place at the famous Fig & Olive restaurant in West Hollywood. This year’s dinner honored filmmaker Lee Daniels, with actors from his impressive collection of work showing up to fete the 54-year old multiple Academy Award nominee.

Those paying tribute to the director/writer/producer included singer Courtney Love and actors Trai Byers, Jussie Smollett and Bryshere Y. Gray, all of whom appear on the television series “Empire,” which has quickly become a ratings phenomenon. Also in attendance and heaping praise on Daniels were singer Brandy, actors David Oyelowo, Kate Hudson, Paula Patton, and comedian Mike Epps.

Other guests included fellow directors John Singleton and Debbie Allen, actress Lynn Whitfield, Richard Pryor’s widow Jennifer Lee Pryor and the legendary Gladys Knight.
