Tsotsi Celebrates South Africa's 2nd consecutive Oscar Nomination

"Tsotsi" Celebrates Miramax’s Oscar Nominated Best Foreign Language Film at Spark Woodfire Grill (BH)

South Africa has earned its second consecutive Best Foreign Language Film nomination in the country's history; “Yesterday” 2004 and “Tsotsi” 2005. Written and directed by Gavin Hood and based on a novel by Athol Fugard, both South African natives, “Tsotsi” would be the country’s first Academy Award.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 5, 2006 -- Set amidst the sprawling Johannesburg township of Soweto - where survival is the primary objective - Tsotsi traces six days in the life of a ruthless young gang leader who ends up caring for a baby accidentally kidnapped during a car-jacking.

Pico Boulevard and Spark Woodfire Grill are also new to Oscar night festivities; however this Special Event Team has worked together before. Danilo Terribili (Spark Co-Owner), Fredy Escobar (Executive Chef) and Pamela Saunders (E-Marketing Director/Event Producer) created two previous Academy Awards parties (“Antonia’s Line”, “Before Night Falls”) with one of Tsotsi’s Executive Producers, Robbie Little at the now closed Alto Palato on La Cienega.

The accolades for “Tsotsi” have been abundant; Pan African Film and Arts Festival Jury Prize for Best Feature Award, British Academy Film Award Nominee, Los Angeles Film Festival Award, Best International Feature at the Santa Barbara Film Festival, Denver International Film Festival, Edinburgh Film Festival, Capetown World Cinema Festival, St Louis International Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival and Academy Award nominee for Best Foreign Language Film

On Sunday, March 5th, beginning at 4pm (PST) guests will start filing into Spark Woodfire Grill on Pico Boulevard for a cocktail hour before sitting down for the show. The Oscar’s will be visible on seven screens throughout the three levels of the restaurant. A vegetarian buffet will be served along with some imported South African wines. The event is closed and for invited guests only.
