Sacramento native Greta Gerwig's Golden Globe-winning "Lady Bird" takes California's capital to Hollywood's biggest stage March 4 with five Oscar nominations. And Sacramento is rooting for Gerwig and "Lady Bird" to win big.
One of the shots in the film shows the iconic sign of Club Raven, and the venue is hosting an Oscar party March 4 at 5 p.m., complete with a Lady Bird cocktail and Oscar ballot contest. Click here for more details from Sacramento365.
Another Oscar party is being held at the school that graduated Gerwig in 2002: St. Francis High School. The party will be held from 4:30 - 9 p.m. Click here for more details.
Nominations for the film include Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Original Screenplay and Best Director.
If you can't wait until March 4 to get your "Lady Bird" fix, take a walk or jog with Sacramento Running Tours around East Sacramento that includes stops at eight filming locations from McKinley Park to the now-famous blue house in Sacramento's Fabulous Forties neighborhood. As a bonus, treat yourself after the tour with a stop at Gunther's Ice Cream and then drive to see some of the other filming locations.
