Sarah Palin met with Hollywood's conservative elite last weekend and was feted with a standing ovation, LAWeekly magazine
The former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate — who's considered an influential Republican lightning rod — was cheered as she attended a Friends of Abe dinner at the Hilton Universal City Hotel.
The organization was launched in 2005 through an email chain connecting conservatives in the film industry.
Among its founders are Gary Sinise, Jon Voight, and Kelsey Grammer.
Palin made a splashy entry with five bodyguards in tow and the crowd leaped to its feet and applauded, a source told the publication.
Palin and the audience — which included "Law and Order" actor Paul Sorvino — then listened to featured speaker Mark Steyn, a conservative political commentator.
But Palin was the star of the evening.
"Friends of Abe director Jeremy Boreing was interrupted by applause multiple times as he spoke about Palin from the podium," LAWeekly.com reported.
As the event ended, Palin remained to pose for photos, according to the magazine.
GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump spoke before FOA members earlier this year and had a private conversation with Sinise.
