Watch: Stars Come Out for Academy Museum Gala
READ TIME: 16 MIN.
Eugenio Derbez, Taraji P. Henson, Willem Dafoe and Gael Garcia Bernal were among the stars attending the third Academy Museum Gala on Sunday in Los Angeles.
It's a fundraiser event that doubles as an early stop for performers beginning their Hollywood awards campaigns, and a chance to see and be seen for up-and-coming actors, models and musicians.
Also in attendance: David Oyelowo, Colman Domingo, HAIM, Sarah Silverman, Elizabeth Banks and Jon Bernthal.
The event was honoring Meryl Streep, Oprah Winfrey, Michael B. Jordan and Sofia Coppola, and was co-chaired by Ava DuVernay, Ryan Murphy, Halle Berry and museum trustee Eric Esrailian.
The $484 million, Renzo Piano-designed Academy Museum opened two years ago and draws as many as 700,00 visitors a year.
