Lavish Fête Planned for Oscar-Barred Producer


Nicolas Chartier will not be made an example of! Despite being disinvited and banned from Sunday's Oscars ceremony, the aggressive-campaigning Hurt Locker producer will be the guest of honor at a party thrown by a WME boss, his wife, and producer Lynette Howell (whose Blue Valentine just sold to Harvey Weinstein at Sundance. Awkward!). Guests can expect a red carpet, French cuisine, about 100 fellow partygoers and, of course, an impassioned, hastily written, Avatar-bashing invitation via e-mail. [Deadline]
