2003 Oscars

Ceremony Date: February 24, 2004

Location: Spyglass Drive, Austin

This was a year that saw the Oscar Party moved again to Austin; this time for not pleasant reasons. My beloved Grandmother, Evelyn Riely, passed away a few weeks before the Oscars. Her funeral was the day before – and yet, my family still wanted to have the party. We invited relatives and friends to come by my parents condo. Grandma had given me my first subscription to Premiere Magazine and she nurtured my love of old movies. In a way, having the Oscar party after her funeral was a lovely wake.  Because of the change of location, I decided it was OK to not strain for drinks for Mystic River and Seabiscuit….

Best Picture – The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

Drinks:
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King - Mead
Lost in Translation - Santuro (It’s Santuro time!)
