The Oscars are in March, but a few days before that on February 28th, Brits in LA’s 11th annual Toscars were held. The brainchild of actor Craig Robert Young and Eileen Lee. This affectionate, spoofy homage was based around this year’s Oscar nominations for best movie. In just three weeks parodies of each of the Oscar-nominated films were judged by over 150 members at the Whacademy.
Past presenters and hosts have included Joshua Jackson (The Affair) Skeet Ulrich (Riverdale), Academy and Golden Globe nominee Eric Roberts, Alex Newell (Glee), Candis Cayne (Dirty Sexy Money), Craig Robert Young (The Last Ship), Jai Rodriquez (Queer Eye), Brianna Brown (Dynasty), Bai Ling, Sean Maguire (Once Upon a Time), DJ Paul Oakenfold, Hakeem Kae-Kazim (Dynasty), Luke Evans (Beauty and The Beast, The Alienist), Rex Lee (Entourage, Young and Hungry), Janina Gavankar (Sleepy Hollow), Emmy Winner Bruce Vilanch, Brit Award Winner Siobhan Fahey (Bananarama), Bradley Walsh (Law & Order: UK) and the BAFTA winning comedian Jim Tavaré.
