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:
