Just got word that Vanity Fair has disinvited The New York Times from covering their annual Oscars party. They said it "feels like the Times has already run their coverage of the VF party this year," they said. I guess we did!https://t.co/xZUWpbQnJH— choire (@Choire) February 22, 2019
- The New York Times published an article yesterday about the annual Vanity Fair Oscars party, suggesting that the Oscars afterparty that was once the hottest ticket in town is now past its prime.
- The Times laid out a number of possible reasons for this, among them a heavy corporate presence, bloated guest lists, VF editor Graydon Carter's retirement, an abundance of photographs, more exclusive parties held by others (like Madonna and Beyoncé), and the lack of an appropriately sized venue with the right atmosphere.
- The Times tweeted today that they've been dis-invited from covering this year's afterparty.
Is Vanity Fair being petty? What afterparty do you want to crash?
