Tonight, Women in Film held its sixth annual pre-Oscars event honoring females in the movie industry at LA restaurant Fig & Olive. Last year's best supporting actress winner, Octavia Spencer, played cohost for the event, and two of her costars from The Help were also in attendance. Viola Davis walked the red carpet with her husband, while Jessica Chastain made a late arrival to the soiree after fighting LA traffic. The event, sponsored by MAC, Max Mara, and Perrier-Jouet, honors women who are recognized for their work both in front of — and behind — the camera.
Of course, men were welcome at the bash, as well. Director David O. Russell, whose film Silver Linings Playbook is up for best picture on Sunday, attended. So did Daniel Radcliffe, who chatted up Jessica inside the party. Beyond Jessica, several of this year's female Oscar nominees were also in attendance, including best supporting actress nominee Jacki Weaver. Jacki told us her husband is working and won't be able to be her date for the Oscars, so he's throwing a viewing party at their apartment in Sydney for friends and family instead. Even though the time difference means they'll be watching the festivites around lunchtime, she told us tuxedos will be required! Join our viewing party on Sunday when PopSugar's live coverage of the Oscars kicks off at 5:30 p.m. EST/2:30 p.m. PST.
The Sundance Film Festival is coming to an end on Sunday with Ashton Kutcher's jOBS premiere closing out the festival tonight, but there's already been plenty of action.

Earlier in the week, Jessica Biel posed with Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes costars Alfred Molina, Kaya Scodelario, and director Francesca Gregorini at a party while Jake Gyllenhaal flew in to support his mom Naomi Foner's directorial debut, Very Good Girls.

Happy birthday, Daniel Radcliffe! Today, Harry Potter himself turns 23. While he may be a Hollywood leading man and a top-earning superstar, we found that Daniel has a bit of an adorable side where his geekdom shines bright.
- Math groupie? Yes, he is a huge fan of mathematician/singer/songwriter Tom Lehrer. In fact, Daniel can recite his famous "The Elements" song — an ode to the periodic table — at the drop of a hat.
- His famous party trick? Rotating his arms 360 degrees.
- Daniel is a bookworm! He delayed the filming of the second and third Harry Potter movies to stay in school and focus on his education.
- Poet Potter: The (UK) Guardian reported that Daniel has published poetry under the pen name "Jacob Gershon," a combination of his mother's maiden name and his middle name.
- Little jokester: Daniel is a huge fan of pranks. When he was 10, he took costar Robbie Coltrane's cell phone and changed it so all the messages were in Turkish!

To celebrate Daniel Radcliffe's birthday today, let's take a look at the 23-year-old's life by the numbers. The last two Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows films proved to be a box office behemoth — they brought in about $2.3 billion, and they are the two most lucrative Harry Potter movies. That's more than enough to cover the salary of star Daniel Radcliffe, and he was paid a nice chunk of change for his final portrayal of Harry. Take a stab at guessing how much he made for the role.
The Harry Potter movies may be over, but Harry, or at least Daniel Radcliffe, the man behind the wizard, isn't going anywhere. Daniel just signed on to his first romantic comedy, F Word, and he has several more films in the works for release in the next two years. Celebrating his "golden birthday" this year — turning 23 on July 23 — Daniel is a man of many talents, but even after all his big success and popularity, he seems like a generally normal, down-to-earth guy. And he just keeps getting better and better, as the self-deprecating Daniel told Parade he's bad at dating and that his girlfriend, Rosie Coker, still loves him despite his awkwardness.
"There are lots of times when I'm a very good boyfriend, but there are times when I'm useless. I mean, I'm a mess around the house. I talk nonstop. I become obsessed with things (fantasy football, most recently). And she listens to it, and she loves me for my oddness, my awkwardness — all of those things that I hate about myself."
Daniel has officially stolen our hearts; let us count the ways!
