Broadway dancers! Ennio Morricone! Lady Gaga, almost! 

Highlights of The Weinstein Company’s annual pre-Oscar dinner at Montage Beverly Hills (of which Indiewire was a sponsor) were surprisingly eclectic, drawing as much from TWC’s Broadway investments (“Finding Neverland” and the upcoming “Singin’ In The Rain") as from their Oscar nominees, which include Todd Haynes’ “Carol,” Quentin Tarantino's “The Hateful Eight” and the Kirby Dick documentary “The Hunting Ground.”
