The Oscars aren't until Sunday night, but for Hollywood, the chaos is already in full swing!

Before hitting the red carpet, there are countless pre-parties to attend, especially for the night's biggest honorees. From schmoozy cocktail parties to buttoned-up brunches, Hollywood is bustling this weekend.

Among the stars making the rounds were Allison Janney and Margot Robbie, who enjoyed Tequila Don Julio 1942 at the Gersh Oscar Party, and Angela Basset, who was spotted at Cadillac's Oscar Week Celebration and the Essence Black Women in Hollywood Oscars Luncheon.

The biggest night for pre-parties is -- of course -- Saturday, when everyone will be out and about in Hollywood. One of the most coveted tickets is at Nordstrom Local, where VIPs will enjoy gourmet food by STK L.A. and champagne. Best Actor nominee Timothee Chalamet is expected to be there, as are his "Call Me By Your Name" co-stars Armie Hammer and Michael Stuhlbarg.

Another hot ticket is for Chanel and Charles Finch's 10th annual Pre-Oscar dinner, where major stars like Nicole Kidman are known to make appearances. Plus, this year's will feature a mariachi band -- ole!
