There is the tradition of having a big luncheon where all the Oscar Nominees get to gather together and rub elbows before they have to start practicing their graceful losing faces for the cameras on the day of the big event. I think that if any of you are looking to win some green on the big day, plan on voting blue, blind and crazy. Hey, I'm just being honest here. I might not understand world politics, but I definitely have a bead on Oscar politics.
Pictured are: Maggie Gyllenhaal, Vera Farmiga, Anna Kendrick and Carey Mulligan.
