On Sunday, while some celebs sat in the audience at the Kodak Theatre waiting to see if they would win an Academy Award, other stars were in attendance at Sir Elton John’s 20th annual Oscar viewing party raising $5.2 million for the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

The glamorous party took place at West Hollywood Park in Los Angeles. A slew of actors and actresses attended including Best Actor winner Jean Dujardin, Anna Paquin and husband Stephen Moyer, Ted Danson, Miley Cyrus, Paul Wesley and Kelly Osbourne to name a few.

The guests enjoyed cocktails and a five-course meal prepared by The Food Network’s Iron Chef Cat Cora, while viewing the 84th Academy Awards. After dinner, a live auction took place where fabulous items were auctioned off. An opportunity to attend the Vanity Fair Oscar Party with John and husband David Furnish went for $230,000, a tennis lesson with Rafael Nadal auctioned for $190,000 and a vampire bite from “The Vampire Diaries” stars and real-life couple Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev sold for $80,000.

John’s party is one of many events that raises money and pledges to find a cure for HIV/AIDS. The legendary singer founded the party 20 years ago, and will hold it every year, until a cure is found.

The event also benefited the environment, as the party provided clean energy through a sustainable generator developed by GoGreen Mobile Power, an eco-friendly, mobile generator company.
