Oscar nominees from ‘Oppenheimer’ and ‘Barbie’ to documentary shorts gather for lunch

LOS ANGELES– The annual Oscar Nominees Luncheon on Monday is a chance for this year’s Oscar nominees to gather for photos, hugs and congratulations.

The luncheon is a warm, feel-good, egalitarian affair where little-known first-time nominees in categories like Best Animated Short can rub shoulders and share tables with acting nominees like Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone .

The centerpiece of the event in Beverly Hills, California, is a class photo of the entire group of nominees. Almost all of them habitually attend, both as part of the Oscars experience and as part of their tacit campaigns for votes.

Before the lunch proper began, nominees including Cillian Murphy, favorite for best actor for “Oppenheimer,” and Da’Vine Joy Randolph, favorite for best supporting actress for “The Holdovers,” made the media tour whose journalists are present. in cabanas around the Beverly Hilton swimming pool.

Steven Spielberg, nominated for best picture as producer of “Maestro,” chatted with a small group on the terrace.

Less famous nominees gathered in the ballroom and posed for group photos.

They’ll later sit down to a vegetarian menu of king oyster mushrooms and wild mushroom risotto.

The event also provides an opportunity for Academy leaders, including President Janet Yang, to deliver speeches and address their distinguished members in person.

She used last year’s luncheon to address what she called the Academy’s “inadequate” response to Will Smith’s slap on Chris Rock at the previous year’s ceremony.

Leaders may address some serious issues this year, but they will likely adopt a lighter tone.

This year’s guests include director Christopher Nolan and stars Cillian Murphy, Robert Downey Jr. and Emily Blunt of “Oppenheimer,” the most nominated film with 13 nominations and the favorite in many key categories.

Other nominees include “The Holdovers,” “Killers of the Flower Moon” and “Poor Things.”

And even though “Barbie” director Greta Gerwig and star Margot Robbie were snubbed in their main categories, both will be among the guests: Gerwig as original screenplay nominee, Robbie as nominee’s producer for best film.
