Travel through time with us to Oscar Nominees Luncheons of yore via this slideshow.

Monday brings this year's annual event. Seventeen of the 20 nominees in the acting categories are scheduled to attend – everyone but Emmanuelle Riva, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Alan Arkin – along with all the director nominees except for Tom Hooper. 

I'll be tweeting from the 12 noon gathering, and AMPAS is also planning a live blog.
