Blackstone’s Annual Holiday Video Is Out And Reese Witherspoon Is in It
Since the first Monday of lockdown in New York, a weekly company-wide Zoom has marked business milestones and built personal ties at Blackstone: President Jon Gray has talked about his Covid puppy Luna. Chief Executive Officer Steve Schwarzman recently told of outdoor adventures with his grandkids, all while wearing a blue Santa hat.
Dubbed Blackstone Television, the meeting has grown into its name. Gray and Chief Administrative Officer Vik Sawhney read their pun-filled scripts from a teleprompter. Sawhney makes good use of a sound-effects gizmo.
“What started as a crisis project has been woven into the fabric of the firm,” Gray said Monday, after the last meeting of the year, titled “Season 2, Episode 40.”
Perhaps the biggest sign of the show’s success is that it’s the subject of Blackstone’s fourth annual holiday video, which as the alternative-asset manager looks to expand its holdings in media, could well be dubbed Blackstone’s original streaming hit.
In real life, Blackstone Television presents a lot of straight information with some fun peppered in. The version in the holiday video bends and twists reality, to provide laughs to employees and the firm’s investors.
Like the past three versions, this year’s video opens with the theme song for “The Office” as a camera pans across Blackstone’s Manhattan headquarters. Gray is the star again, playing a manic version of himself, this time obsessed with making Blackstone Television just like a real TV show.
Reese attended the Sing 2 premiere in Los Angeles last night! She joined her co-stars Matthew McConaughey, Scarlett Johannson, and Nick Kroll on the red carpet for the night, and chatted to the press about the director and music producer, the importance of a fun movie given difficult times, singing Ariana Grande in the movie, her festive plans, and The Morning Show season 3. Reese bought her family to the event and posed with them on the red carpet too. She looked pretty in pink in a Carolina Herrera dress with red Christian Louboutin heels – we love this look! Find over 80 high quality photos in our Gallery, and video interviews from the red carpet further down this post:
Last Thursday Reese attended the Stella McCartney x The Beatles: Get Back Launch Party in Los Angeles.

Reese was snapped with Stella McCartney, Kate Hudson, Orlando Bloom and Laura Dern at the event, and looked striking in a pink blazer! Find photos in our Gallery:
Today we’ve added screencaptures of Reese presenting at the Oscars earlier this year, as well as their pre-show show Into The Spotlight during which Reese and Laura Dern were interviewed. We’ve also noticed that we didn’t post about the additional Oscar high quality photos we added earlier in the year, so they are previewed below and don’t forget to browse them in our Gallery!
Reese attended the InStyle Awards in LA yesterday evening, where she presented the Hair Stylist Award to her hairstylist Lona Vigi. Reese talked about her love for Lona’s energy, joy and professionalism, and the first movie they worked on together 12 years ago – you can watch Reese’s speech below. Reese wore a blue sequin dress by Michael Kors, with Jimmy Choo heels. We’ve added the first high quality photos to our Gallery, and look out for more later this week…
