Stars party at ‘Godfather’ house, Sunset Tower before Oscars 2023

It was an offer they couldn’t refuse when stars partied Friday night in advance of the Oscars at a series of starry Hollywood agency and fashion bashes.

WME’s annual party was held at a surprise location: William Randolph Hearst’s Beverly Hills mansion, better known as “The Godfather” house.

The sprawling 1920s compound was where the infamous scene was filmed in which a Hollywood exec wakes up with a horse head in his bed. The home reportedly sold in 2021 for $63.1 million at auction.

For WME’s party, the 18-bedroom estate was transformed into a moody, multilevel party palace with rooms featuring a tiki bar (complete with sand), a disco, a jazz band and more.

There were also foodie outposts by LA hotspots such as Slab Barbecue and The Nice Guy.

Adam Sandler was seen chatting with Travis Kelce about his recent “SNL” hosting gig, spies said, and guests also included Leonardo DiCaprio, Miles Teller, Austin Butler, Robert Pattinson, Baz Luhrmann, Kristen Stewart, Orlando Bloom, Larry David, Tobey Maguire and designer Jeremy Scott.
