Hollywood Elsewhere attended two good-time Manhattan soirees last night. First up was the Fox Searchlight holiday party at the Nomad Hotel (B’way and 28th) where I spoke with Can You Ever Forgive Me? director Marielle Heller and “cat killer” Richard E. Grant. The second stage was the Roma after-party at The Pool, or the former location of The Four Seasons (99 East 52nd). Thanks to Fox Searchlight reps and Netflix’s Lisa Taback and Albert Tello for the invites. A splendid time, excellent food and drink, superb coatrooms, etc.

Six or seven old typewriters, dating back to the 20s and 30s, were available for the Fox Searchlight guests at the Nomad. It’s not easy typing on these things.
