Paying tribute to one of Hollywood's most esteemed directors, this year's Vanity Fair and Richard Mille celebration selected Martin Scorsese as its honoree.

With the annual Pre-Oscar soiree taking place at Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles on Friday night (February 24), the "Hugo" mastermind joined alongside fellow guests including Best Supporting Actress nominee Jessica Chastain and Best Actor hopeful Demián Bichir during the swanky fete.

Also turning up to toast Scorsese was Ray Liotta, who mingled with "Sopranos" actress Lorraine Bracco, while Sir Ben Kingsley arrived with his lovely wife Daniela Lavender on his arm.

Rounding out the guest list were "Friends with Benefits" actress Patricia Clarkson, as well as Olga Kurylenko, Robin Tunney, Roberta Armani, Kathleen Robertson and Victoria Summer.

The function was held in support of The Film Foundation, which is "dedicated to protecting and preserving motion picture history by providing annual support for preservation and restoration projects at the leading film archives."
