The luncheon for all the Oscar nominees is one of the coolest traditions in the AMPAS history. Everyone comes together to be feted and awarded with a certificate of their achievement, of being an Oscar nominee now and forevermore!
They also get together to pose for a group photograph of whoever's present and it's really fun to spot your favourites among the bunch. Click on the photo below to see this year's Class of 2013 and read more about the luncheon from the official blog here. Bradley Cooper is certainly amused to be sitting next to Quvenzhane Wallis.
Rest of the luncheon pics (and more of my favorites) after the cut
|Steven Spielberg and Ang Lee - Besties? This is frameworthy!|
|Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) shows some 'tude before she steps into the arena.|
|Quvenzhane Wallis, rocking the puppy purse!|
|Denzel Washington looks really happy to be there.|
|Joaquin Phoenix is getting there eventually.|
|It's Lee with Pi (Suraj Sharma) in much amenable surroundings and nowhere near water.|
|Call me for Cleopatra!|
|Spielberg's head of the class.|
|And finally, saved the best for last. Even their strawberries are all kinds of awesome. |
Think again, Wimbledon.
