Hollywood’s power elite vie for the most exclusive Zoom party

A pandemic isn’t about to stop Hollywood powerbrokers from competing for status and star power. Now mega-manager Guy Oseary is taking on WME don Richard Weitz for the king of the Zoom shindig.

After WME partner Weitz’s Zoom pandemic party became the hottest password in town, attracting stars including John Mayer, Liam Payne, Marcus Mumford, James Bay, Tina Fey, Charlie Puth and Billy Ray Cyrus, we’re told that Oseary — who’s long hosted big Oscar bashes with Madonna — is trying to steal the title from Weitz.

We hear Oseary’s weekly get-togethers have attracted Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, David Spade, Jessica Chastain, Alex Rodriguez, Lenny Kravitz, Jimmy Fallon, Shaquille O’Neal, Adam Sandler, Dakota Fanning and Laura Dern, among other stars, plus Tinseltown execs including Netflix boss Ted Sarandos.

Spies say that hot topics of discussion on the calls have included the ESPN “Last Dance” documentary about the Chicago Bulls, the new Beastie Boys documentary — and, of course, from which exotic island locales people are dialing in.

Meanwhile, Oseary’s major competition, Weitz’s soirees, have welcomed guests such as LL Cool J, Rev Run and execs including Jeffrey Katzenberg and Stacey Snider. There have also been living-room performances by Mayer, John Legend, Rufus Wainwright, Ziggy Marley and Barry Gibb, among others.

On Friday, Weitz hosted a Nashville-themed party, with performers including country superstars Luke Bryan and Darius Rucker as well as Michael McDonald.

Weitz also announced that the event — which began as a 17th birthday party for his daughter, Demi — has now raised more than $2 million for COVID-19 relief.
