Many of the year's Oscar nominees were in LA today for the annual Annual Academy Awards Luncheon. The ladies of Up in the Air, Anna Kendrick and Vera Farmiga, were out for the meal, though it looks like George Clooney wasn't able to attend. Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep were there to help represent the Leading Actress category. Maggie Gyllenhaal, meanwhile, posed near Carey Mulligan, who was positively glowing. Gabourey Sidibe happily chatted about her amazing year in the wake of Precious' success, opening up about how she's dying to meet Steve Martin. There's lots more to come from the pre-show event, so stay tuned for all the latest details!
