Every year, the Oscar nominees gather for a special luncheon in Los Angeles roughly a month before the ceremony itself takes place. Considered one of the most exclusive events in Hollywood, press from around the world flock to the luncheon every year in hopes of speaking with those that are being honored by the Academy.
This year’s luncheon was held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel earlier today, February 10th. Though not every single one of the nominees were in attendance, most of the major players showed up. Alexander Payne, Leonardo DiCaprio, Steve McQueen, Bradley Cooper and several others generously took the time today to speak with members of the press.
Luckily, we were able to attend the event and recorded the entire thing. You can listen to it below and we definitely recommend that you do. If you’re interested in Awards season, or just happen to enjoy listening to some of Hollywood’s hottest talent speak about their work, then you’ll definitely get a kick out of what the 86th Annual Academy Awards nominees had to say earlier today.
So, without further ado, we present to you, the full, unedited audio from today’s 86th Annual Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon.
