The Hollywood Reporter‘s sixth annual Nominees Night party got a jolt from two Oscar-contending recording artists Monday night when Miguel and Common took the stage for surprise performances of their nominated songs.
The ‘War & Leisure‘ star performed the bilingual “Remember Me” from Pixar’s Coco, and Common and singer Goldie belted out “Stand Up for Something” from Marshall in front of an enthusiastic crowd at Wolfgang Puck’s Cut at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills.
Hosted by THR’s editorial director Matthew Belloni, the event drew such Oscar nominees as Jordan Peele (Get Out), Greta Gerwig and Laurie Metcalf (Lady Bird), Timothee Chalamet and Luca Guadagnino (Call Me by Your Name), Gary Oldman (Darkest Hour), Guillermo Del Toro and Richard Jenkins (The Shape of Water), Willem Dafoe (The Florida Project), Sam Rockwell (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), Aaron Sorkin (Molly’s Game), Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon (The Big Sick), Dee Rees (Mudbound) and Allison Janney (I, Tonya), among others.
During Miguel’s performance of “Remember Me,” the Coco creative team — co-director Adrian Molina, director Lee Unkrich and producer Darla K. Anderson — watched from a booth, as did songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. Diane Warren, the writer of “Stand Up for Something,” also was in attendance for the performance.
