Last weekend, TheOneRing.net hosted a celebration of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey‘s Academy Award nominations by throwing The One Expected Party just down the road from where The Oscars were held in Los Angeles, California.  This is following our tradition of honoring Peter Jackson’s productions of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy.  Now, after years of assisting Jackson in his effort to Make The Hobbit Happen, we’re thrilled to gear up for 3 Oscar Parties following the 3 installments of The Hobbit.  Here are a gathering of the various discussions on the TORn Message Boards for the first Party… with 2 more to go!  Start saving and planning, folks… and join us in LA next year and The One after that!
