Was cate blanchett there. Lady galadriel katheine hepburn jasmine elizabeth.
Yes Blanchett is there.
Pharrell Williams and that hat. Make it stop!
Spike Jonze and Pharrell Williams need to be excommunicated for their outfits.
Deakins just standing there thinking, “I’ve been through enough of this horseshit.”
What a lovely Overdue Corner they have there. Roger Deakins, Thomas Newman next to each other and Amy Adams just behind them. You get to stand there when you have at least 5 nominations without wins.
I actually don’t know who are the ones with most nominations with no wins (mostly in categories such as VFX). Must be Newman?
And if no one knows who you are, they give you a chair.
Chiwetel Ejiofor was the only best actor nominee to be a no show.
Not that it matters AT ALL but has this always happened on a Monday? Weird day for such a high profile event, no?
Did not see Jennifer Lawerence might be because of her short haircut.
Michael Fassbender was a no show either. Macbeth is in production, right?
None of the acting categories had perfect attendance? So there were no small group photos?
Meryl wants that 4th Oscar, so she’s already strategically positioned LOL!
LOL . . . . Apparently, Pharrell (sp) has lost some weight; look at that oversized hat . . . . xD
Poor girls Sandra and Amy, they both were so far away so close on the top left . . . .
Bono: You guys know what . . . after all these years I still haven’t found what I’m looking for. All the streets just happened to have no name . . . .
Anyway, is it me or was JLaw really nowhere in sight? : (
(Lupita’s just kept stealing her thunder lately . . . . )
Wow, cool! Do you have a picture of Emma Thompson or Lana Del Rey? Oh wait, that’s right, they got SCREWED by the Academy!
No, I’m not letting go of this, makes me bitter and angry, these two ladies were more deserving of a nomination than 90% of the people in this room!
I am in the picture too, but I’m on the very far left with Carol Chambers. We both got edited out. But we were wearing very nice old lady dresses and smiling. I bumped into June Squibb and told her she made my day when she dropped the F bomb in the movie. Laughing, Squibb tried to flash me like she did in the film but I kindly informed her I didn’t “swing that way”.
Wonderful! What were you two nominated for this year? Did you manage to take your own pictures or at least “mental pictures”?
If so, could you please use telepathy to transmit them to me?
@Christophe: Oh we weren’t nominees, we just accidentally walked in the place thinking it was the Psychics of the USA United conference. We were so embarrassed when we realized our mistake, but once Carol noticed chocolate cake she insisted we “blend in with the crowd.” When it came time to take the big photo, one of the media guys whispered to me that “You ought to be in the picture too, with your sexy ass.” Well that did it- Carol and I quickly walked up towards the far left (we could smell Amy Adams’ perfume) but I guess we didn’t get in the photo.
Still, we were able to get a lot of energy from the nominees. Carol kept asking where Woody Allen was.
Seriously, what would we do without you? You are amazing! Don’t ever change!! You make me smile.
But, if it’s alright, can I ask you a personal question?? Is Gail Withers your real name, or did you take it as a take on Gale Weathers from Scream?? Either way, keep on being awesome!!
@Radich, yes, Fassbender is in England filming MacBeth. I believe he’ll make it to BAFTA this Sunday since it’s there in London.
@Thomas : Not attending are Judi Dench, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender, Sally Hawkins, and Jennifer Lawrence.
Ethan Hawke and the Oscar statue have the same bone structure!
Second row, on the left — gotta love the lady poking her head over the shoulder of the guy in front of her. She’s gonna be in this picture, goddammit!
