It’s always one of the most-loved events of Oscar season, and once again the 21st Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party was a sight to behold.

Tinseltown twosome Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer stepped out to the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood this evening (February 24) to check out all the star-studded action.

Meanwhile, “Vampire Diaries” trio Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, and Paul Wesley all showed up to pose for the paparazzi and mingle with fellow famous folks.

Nicki Minaj looked surprisingly simple and extra sexy in a shimmery white getup with long blonde locks and silver heels, while Emma Roberts, Emmy Rossum, and Heidi Klum also got all gussied up for the affair.

And the host with the most Elton John also welcomed controversial pop singer Chris Brown to the soiree prior to the commencement of the 85th Academy Awards.
