Oscars 2017: See All the Contenders Come Together for Nominees' Luncheon

Yahoo! Movies Staff

The Oscar nominee luncheon, the annual shindig that brings together all the Academy Award contenders for an informal afternoon of schmoozing and last-minute campaigning. Stars such as Emma Stone, Denzel Washington, Natalie Portman, Ryan Gosling, Matt Damon, Justin Timberlake, and Nicole Kidman braved the rainy Los Angeles weather to gather at the luxe Beverly Hilton hotel on Feb. 6. Per tradition, dessert is followed by the “Oscar Class Photo,” in which all the attending nominees squeeze in for the shutterbugs. Yahoo Movies was there for the action so be sure to also check out our behind-the-scenes report; in the meantime, click through to see how Hollywood’s brightest looked for their lunch date ahead of the Feb. 26 main event.
