First-Ever Virtual Academy Awards Pre-Party

The 29th annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards® Pre-Party will be hosted by the incredible Neil Patrick Harris alongside Sir Elton John and David Furnish, with a stripped back performance by the one and only Dua Lipa. Here's everything you need to know!

For the first time, Foundation supporters worldwide are invited to attend the famed Oscar party by joining a 60-minute Pre-Show Special produced by Fulwell 73 at Rosewood London. The Pre-Party Special will be powered by Cisco Webex to securely bring the event live to audiences. With its presence across four continents, the Foundation is committed to overcome the stigma, discrimination and neglect that keeps us from ending AIDS.


“This year, we are bringing our Oscar Party into people’s homes for the first time virtually for an unforgettable evening with David, myself, our dear friend Neil Patrick Harris and the incredible Dua Lipa plus many fabulous surprise names. Now more than ever, we need to ensure that one pandemic does not override another, and we cannot forget the 38 million people living with HIV globally who need our care, love and support so we hope everyone joins us for this special one of a kind Oscar Pre‐Party.” Elton John.

Cisco Webex and Parx Casino partnered with the Foundation as the evening’s Leading Partners. Co-Sponsors include Gilead Sciences, Robert Kraft, Judy and Leonard Lauder, and Associate Sponsors Elena and Victor Pinchuk, Rosewood London, Sam’s Club, Iris and Michael Smith, as well as Official Airline American Airlines and Official Champagne Partner Charles de Cazanove.
