Film stars honoured ahead of Oscars

Three of Ireland’s top film stars will be honoured in Hollywood just days ahead of the Academy Awards, it has been announced.

Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, and Jonathan Rhys Meyers will be recognised for their contribution to the industry at a pre-Oscars bash hosted by the US-Ireland Alliance.

The annual Oscar Wilde: Honouring The Irish in Film party brings together leaders in the Irish and US film, music and entertainment communities while the star-studded town is gearing up for the prestigious award ceremony.

The party will be held on Thursday, February 19, 2009, at the Wilshire Ebell in Los Angeles.
