Los Angeles-based Lynch Archer PR Entertainment had an amazing time this Oscars award season with some of our A-list clients including LA Clippers’ Matt Barnes and wife, Gloria Govan of Basketball Wives LA.
It was also one of the most hectic times for the offices, not to say it didn’t all pay off in the end!
It may seem like the Academy Awards are just a one-night celebration of the achievements of the biggest and best in the film industry, but that is definitely not the case. CEO Cheryl Lynch and LAPR staff started planning out the hectic season months in advance.
Pre-Oscar parties, gifting suites, and other celebrations begin as early as two weeks before the show and they kick into full gear the week leading up to the big night.
For LAPR, it all began with the Roger Neal Style Hollywood gifting suite at L’Ermitage in Beverly Hills with Gloria Govan (Basketball Wives LA). While it was complete madness for us getting Gloria around the ballroom to all the vendors and media wanting her picture, she definitely enjoyed herself, and all the free swag!
The first stop was the press line to grab photos of Gloria Govan and Lynch Archer CEO Cheryl Lynch arriving to the Oscars gifting suite.

And as far as the LAPR staff, our favorite part was obviously the Chambord table!

After the madness of the gifting suite and Gloria making out with some awesome goodies including the bracelets and Chambord bottle pictured above, as well as cigars and some awesome fashion accessories, our day was not over!
LAPR also checked out the Red Carpet Celebrity Retreat at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills and walked away with some awesome gifts.

And after a long day of getting our clients Oscar ready, our work wasn’t done yet! Gloria took off for a dress fitting (thanks to hubby Matt Barnes) for her special birthday celebration at the Roxbury in Hollywood the same night!
So the LAPR staff headed to Hollywood to celebrate in style. It was an amazing night, but we wouldn’t expect any less from this power couple! Tables, bottle service, and friends of the two including DeAndre Jordan (LA Clippers), Andre Johnson (Houston Texans), Chauncey Billups (LA Clippers), Christina Milian and Lil’ Twist of Young Money Entertainment (YMCMB) all showed up to wish Gloria Govan a Happy Birthday!

And this leads us up to the Friday before the Oscars when things really started picking up! Lynch Archer PR Entertainment clients were invited to some of the hottest Pre-Oscar parties including Global Green USA’s green carpet event at the Avalon in Hollywood, OK! Magazine’s special event at The Emerson Theater, Norby Walter’s Night of 100 Stars Oscar viewing party, and the Elton John Foundation’s exclusive Oscars after-party!
Not to mention, in-between all of that, our client Quest Nutrition made a special appearance at the infamous Razzie’s Saturday night!

All-in-all it was a very long but very rewarding Oscars 2013 award season for Lynch Archer PR and our clients! Until next year everyone!
