NEW YORK, March 6 (UPI) -- Marcia Gay Harden, Iman, Dan Aykroyd, Fran Drescher and Chris Noth were among the throng of celebrities watching the Academy Awards from New York.

Alan Cumming, Billy Baldwin, Chris Meloni and Ivanka Trump also noshed on crab cakes, poached salmon and veal chops as they watched the Los Angeles ceremony at the annual Entertainment Weekly party at Elaine's Sunday night, the New York Daily News reported.

There were so many celebs packed into the room, Aykroyd cut out before "Crash" was named the upset winner of the coveted best picture award.

"He's claustrophobic," his wife, Donna Dixon, told the newspaper.
