Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- The Oscars have yet to be handed out, but the award for most rocking pre-Academy Awards bash goes to Rolling Stone, who brought out a slew of stars to Drai's Hollywood at the W Hotel Saturday night.

Midway through the night, party host Peter Travers – Rolling Stone film critic and host of ABC News Now's Popcorn With Peter Travers – tweeted, "RS Oscar party has Aaron Sorkin, 50 Cent, Joan Rivers & the young Hollywood casts of Glee, 90210, Pretty Little Liars in the same room. What!"

"What!" indeed. A potpourri of A-listers mixed and mingled to the sounds of The Roots into the wee hours of the morning, buzzing about who they might be celebrating after the Oscars. Trailers of this year's Oscar-nominated movies fueled anticipation.

Earlier in the evening, across town, Social Network star and best actor nominee Jesse Eisenberg played host to a more subdued crowd at L.A. Confidential's party. His face fills the cover of the magazine's annual awards season issue.
