Academy Lunch Assembles Nominees for Portrait Monday, Livestreams Interview Room

Thompson on Hollywood

One of my fave events of the year, the Academy Nominations Lunch, assembles the Oscar nominees–more than a hundred–at the Beverly Hilton Hotel to celebrate, collect a certificate, and pose for a large group photo. The press corps gets a crack at the nominees on the red carpet, in the interview room and some of us actually get to sit down for a meal with nominees at randomly selected tables. Academy president Tom Sherak will deliver some guidelines on acceptance speeches–basically, keep ’em short.

TOH will report back via various media on our gleanings later today, but in the meantime the Academy is also live-streaming the event here and on Facebook:
