Neil Patrick Harris hosted the EJAF's virtual Oscar party on Sunday, where he spoke to Elton and David Furnish about their cinematic preferences.
David said he admired Promising Your Woman while Elton opted for Minari.
''It was uplifting and a great story,'' he stated, mentioning that he enjoyed Judas and the Black Messiah and One Night in Miami as well.
''We've watched all of them,'' he said of this year's contenders, some of which he called ''brilliantly made.''
Actress Cynthia Erivo was among the gala's guests. She performed a series of famous lines from Academy Award-winning movies to the tune of Elton's Your Song, including ''Show me the money'' and ''Here's lookin' at you kid.''
Dr Anthony Fauci also took part. In a pre-taped recording, he thanked Elton and David for their work in fighting HIV and AIDS. He noted the impact that Covid has had, citing decreased testing and the disruption of supply chains providing medications.
''Serious challenges lie ahead for combating the global Covid-19 pandemic, yet as we navigate year two of their pandemic, a pathway to dealing with it, lit by the rapid development of safe and effective vaccines, gives us reason to hope.''
As reported previously, Dua Lipa and Elton performed 'Bennie and the Jets' together, and the event raised $3 million.
