Presenting your 2020 Academy Awards nominees!
Hollywood A-list gathered on Monday at the annual Oscars Nominees Luncheon at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills where this year’s nominees dined and mingled before posing together for an epic photo.
Before the event got underway, Academy president David Rubin asked for a moment of silence from everyone in attendance to pay tribute to 2018 Oscar winner Kobe Bryant, who died Sunday in a helicopter accident. Bryant, 41, won the Best Animated Short Film Oscar for Dear Basketball.
In the class photo, the nominees, who total to just under 100, gathered around three Oscar trophies, against a white background and looked up towards the camera.
Among the nominees was, Parasite‘s Bong Joon-ho, who was nominated for best director. The film has also been nominated for best original screenplay and best picture.
Leonardo Dicaprio, who has been nominated for best actor for his role in Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood, was also seen in the shot. Dicaprio, 45, previously won best actor in 2016 for The Revenant.
A few fit away was Dicaprio’s good friend Brad Pitt, who has been nominated for best supporting actor — also for Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood.
Actress Greta Gerwig was also seen smiling in the photo. She received a nomination for best original screenplay for Little Women.
“We love the tradition of having the previous year’s Oscar-winning actors on stage to celebrate the achievements of their peers and are thrilled to welcome back these four great talents,” show producers Lynette Howell Taylor and Stephanie Allain said in a statement.
