Join us on Oscar's biggest night!

Celebrate the Oscar nominees and the words and works of JRR Tolkien with TheOneRing.net on Hollywood's most magical night! [Purchase Tickets]


In February 2004, The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King snared a record 11 Oscars and TheOneRing.net, the world’s largest The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit fan-site, celebrated with an elaborate black-tie fan-party in Hollywood on the night of the Academy Awards®.

We were privileged to host director Peter Jackson, and prominent cast and crew members, as guests of honour, and they brought along a few ‘golden’ friends.

On the night of February 24th 2013, we are going to do it all again with ‘The One Expected Party!’

We’ll be returning to the unparalleled Hollywood American Legion Post, just blocks from the location of the Academy Awards®, to celebrate the release of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

Celebrate alongside 800 of your closest Tolkien friends as we settle in for almost 10 hours of entertainment, excitement and fellowship!  The festivities begin with free food and drink (including full bar!), to accompany a live screening of the 85th Academy Awards® – taking place only blocks from the party.  Enjoy auctions, games, sideshows, roving entertainers and more throughout the evening; then, when the television broadcast comes to an end, you’ll be treated to our amazing LIVE stage show!

Oscar-party veterans Emerald Rose will get your blood pumping as they fill the grand ballroom with their upbeat and modern take on Celtic music. Between bands, honored guests and celebrity friends of TheOneRing.net will make special appearances, and a variety of acts will keep you entertained. You won’t want to miss Charles Ross as he brings a taste of the magic of ‘The One Man Lord of the Rings™‘ to our stage! And of course, it all leads up to our headline act of the night: Beecake! That’s right, Billy Boyd (aka Pippin) and his band Beecake will bring their alternative rock to the stage at the American Legion, so we can rock away the rest of the night.

We’ll also have a wandering magician, photo opportunities, and a few very special additions that we simply cannot reveal until the party!

We have arranged for discount hotels, tuxedo rentals, shuttles and more. All of those details can be found through the menu above.

This will be a night to remember!  - and YOU can be part of it.  Simply buy your tickets above – but don’t delay, numbers for this very special event are limited, so buy today!  We hope to see you there!
