Oscars 2018: Inside all the pre-parties, brunches and galas ahead of the Academy Awards

The Oscars aren't until Sunday night, but for Hollywood, the chaos is already in full swing!

Before hitting the red carpet, there are countless pre-parties to attend, especially for the night's biggest honorees. From schmoozy cocktail parties to buttoned-up brunches, Hollywood is bustling this weekend.

Among the stars making the rounds were Allison Janney and Margot Robbie, who enjoyed Tequila Don Julio 1942 at the Gersh Oscar Party, and Angela Basset, who was spotted at Cadillac's Oscar Week Celebration and the Essence Black Women in Hollywood Oscars Luncheon.
