I guess I’m the first TheOneRing.net staffer to wake up from a night that was absolutely amazing. Not to gloat…but when Tolkien fans get together to party, they REALLY know how to party. Oh, and did I mention ALL 4 OF THE OSCARS were at the party? Full details to come.

We congratulate all of the winners, the cast and everyone involved with this wonderful film for their resounding success and accomplishment. In the next few days you will see hundreds of pictures, countless reports and as many video clips as our (soon to be retired) server can handle!

Thanks to all the TORn fans who made this party a success. Thank you for being part of our family!

Another big thank you goes to to the folks at Badali Jewelry who made “Good Luck from TheOneRing.net” broaches for the cast and crew. If you looked closely you could see our broaches on Peter Jackson and Jim Rygiel! [PJ’s Pin] [ Jim’s Pin!]

And finally, please support the people who made this party possible. Without the generous support of Sideshow/Weta, EA Games, Decipher and the Official Fan Club, Houghton Mifflin and Royal Selangor this party would simply not have happened.

So folks, get ready for the barrage of Oscar coverage this week. And PJ has personally assured us all we will be loving the new trailer this weekend!
