The ACCS Oscar Viewing Gala, “China Night,” a multi-cultural celebration and Oscar-viewing awards gala just announced the appointment of Richard Walters, President of Smash Music and a leader of Bold Film, as the Advisor of ACCS Oscars China Night Committee. He is a son of Norby Walters, the founder of a Hollywood Oscar viewing party, Night of 100 Stars, and a co-host of Night of 100 Stars for many years.

His joining into the ACCS team encourages the ACCS team to have the confidence in making this year’s Oscar Viewing Gala China Night extra-ordinary fun.
To better serve their members in the entertainment industry and promote international film and television co-production, the ACCS China Oscar Nite Gala will bring together US and Chinese dignitaries, film industry professionals, Hollywood celebrities and VIPs for an extravaganza of sight, sound, and high society.
