MANHATTAN — Step aside Kathryn Bigelow. The most popular star at a post-Ocsar party Sunday night was "Precious" star Gabourey Sidibe, according to Page Six.
At the Vanity Fair shindig, Sidibe chatted with a host of Academy Award winners and fellow nominees including Jeff Bridges, Morgan Freeman, Jeremy Renner, Colin Firth, Elton John, Jennifer Lopez, Hillary Swank, Christoph Waltz, Lauren Bacall and Jane Fonda, the gossip page reported.
"This has been an amazing night. I've met everybody," Sidibe told Page Six.
Sidibe made an appearance at the party despite being passed over by Vanity Fair for the cover of its recent Young Hollywood issue, which instead featured Kristen Stewart, Amanda Seyfried, Anna Kendrick and six other thin, white actresses, the paper reported.
Hollywood newcomer Sidibe was nominated for Best Actress in Sunday's Academy Awards for her portrayal of an abused Harlem teen in "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire."
Sandra Bullock won the award for Best Actress.
