Who needs Hollywood?

Come Sunday, there'll be plenty of glamour right here in the heart of wine country when the Sonoma Valley Film Society ( presents "Night at the Oscars," a black tie-optional gala and live broadcast of the 80th Annual Academy Awards in downtown Sonoma.  Guests are invited to walk the red carpet beginning at 3:30pm, after which they'll be treated to a "multicourse epicurean feast" and "megascreen live broadcast" of the awards, according to the society's web site.

Tickets don't come cheap - they're going for $250 a head - but the Oscars don't come around often, either (nor does the chance to walk a red carpet, for that matter).  After the telecast guests can expect dessert and dancing followed by an after-party, proving that, against all odds, wine country is poised to burn the midnight oil.  It doesn't get much more Hollywood than that, folks.
