Weinsteins To Tone Down Party

Feb 23, 2005 | 9:59am EST

Bob and Harvey Weinstein are dropping the comic theme of their customary pre-Oscars party this weekend--to respectfully mark the end of their movie studio Miramax.

The swan song bash in Los Angeles on Saturday night--held to look back on the brothers' 25-year tenure at the film company--will skip the usual star-studded skits mocking the idiosyncrasies of Hollywood.

However, the somber tone of the evening is proving a major turn off for usual guests--stars who appeared in Miramax hits, like Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, have reportedly snubbed the event.

A source tells website, "It'll be funny when people look around and think, 'Oh, Kids, where's Larry (Clark)? Not here.

"Oh, sex, lies, and videotape, where's Steven (Soderbergh)? Not here.

"Oh, Good Will Hunting, where are Matt (Damon) and Ben (Affleck) and Robin (Williams)? Not here."
