The who's who of the film industry made sure to grace a pre-Oscar VIP Party hosted by the Pittsburgh Film Office on Friday, where the house was betting on "The Artist" making a clean sweep at the Academy Awards next month, although it was hard to find anyone who has actually seen it.

A prequel to the PFO's Lights! Glamour! Action! Oscar party on Feb. 26, more than 300 including co-chairs Drs. Katie and Tony Farah, David Haddad, Chris Breakwell, PFO board Chair Russ Streiner, Emilio Cornacchione, Victoria Berdnik, Justin Streiner, Chelsea Danley and Joe and Lynn Smith were making the rounds at the J. Verno Studios in the South Side. Not to say that there weren't at least a few independent voters.

"I'm pulling for Nick Nolte, since "The Warrior" was filmed here," offered PFO director Dawn Keezer.
