Awards season is in full swing in Hollywood, with everyone partying in anticipation of Sunday night’s Academy Awards ceremony, and last night was no exception.

Global Green USA hosted its annual pre-Oscars bash at Avalon Hollywood Wednesday night, and as usual, the stars came out in droves. According to the organization, 1,500 guests attended, “including celebrities, eco-luminaries and entertainment press from around the world” who came to “hear the latest green messages from some of Hollywood’s biggest stars.”

The event drew well-known eco-crusaders such as Ed Begley, Jr. and Adrian Grenier, as well as a number of TV stars: “Shameless” actress Emmy Rossum, “How I Met Your Mother” star Ted Radnor, “Lost” alum Maggie Grace, Sophia Bush from “One Tree Hill,” “The Vampire Diaries” star Kat Graham, and Johnny Galecki from “The Big Bang Theory.”

Featured musical guest Sheila E. also walked the green carpet, along with singer Michelle Branch and E! news correspondant Ashlan Gorse. One of the event’s sponsors was Chevy Volt, and the celebs all had the chance to pose with a model of the electric car, which was on the carpet.

Tickets ranged in price from $50 – $5,000, so here’s hoping that the party raised plenty of cash for Global Green’s sustainability projects. And of course, there was also that Electric Xenon Lightcyle auction, which was guaranteed to bring in big bucks. All in all, it sounds like one heck of party!

Wish you could have been there? We’ve got the next best thing. Check out the red carpet action below:
