The Brits are used to the rain, and Tuesday night's downpour didn't stop them as they ran undercover at the Egyptian Theatre for the 6th Annual Toscars presented by Brits in LA and sponsored by Volkswagen Santa Monica, Beltran Brito, Geek Eyewear and Gerber & Co, Tax and finance specialists. The event was sold out and everyone's spirits where high. Flashing of bulbs on the red carpet. A pre VIP champagne reception beforehand in 'The Pig and Whistle' Pub Inside the event, From American Idol fame Brian Dunkleman was our host. And our Celebrity judges and presenters had a blast, Eric Roberts, Rex Lee, Alek Keshishian, Walt Becker and Janina Gavankar bought the star power. Keaton Simons entertained the crowd with some original numbers and a rendition of Skyfall.  The big winner for the night was the team 'Miserable Lesbians', a spoof on "Les Miserables", produced by Marina Paganucci and directed and written by Sandro Monetti took home a whopping 8 out 10 awards including Best Threads and Best Whactress gong went to Leah Allers,(who wasn't in attendance) Both Supporting Whactor and Whactress awards went to Michael Enright and Natasha Sill, respectively. The two awards they didn't take home was for Best Tunes, that went Guy Ross and Tamara Douglas-Morris for Skyfell (and I can't Get up) and Best Whactor award went to John Alexander for "Breast of the Southland Wild" At the after party everyone danced to the sounds of PLASTIC LOVE, drank Toscarinis at Sadie's Kitchen and jolly good time was had by all.
