Tyler, TX (KLTV) You didn't have to go all the way to Los Angeles to attend an oscar party, but you did need an invitation. And apparently the know-how to pull- off a hollywood "hello kiss".

Ricks on the Square in Tyler hosted an Oscar party giving East Texas attendees the perfect excuse to pull out that expensive dress.

It was one dreamy event, literally.

"As a matter of fact it was something I had a dream about it and then I became obsessed and I just had to do it, so its a lot of fun. There's 20 hostesses tonight and 260 people are invited," says Sheryl Palmer.

Before entering the party, everyone took a paparazzi pose with none other than Joan Rivers. Well, a cardboard likeness of Joan, anyway.
