2017 Oscar Nominees Luncheon: See the Class Photo

The 2017 Academy Award contenders braved the rain on Monday and came together for the annual Oscars nominees luncheon. The event was held at the Beverly Hilton and gave the nominees and opportunity to celebrate in a casual setting.

Among the nominees: “La La Land’s” Emma Stone (who opted for a one-shouldered jumpsuit) and Ryan Gosling, “Jackie” star Natalie Portman (in a casual dress that showed off her growing baby bump — a contrast to the long gowns she’s worn all awards season), Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer, both in bold prints. Pharrell Williams went ultra casual in a green cap and NASA sweatshirt — a nod to his film “Hidden Figures.”

Matt Damon left his name tag on, but needed no introduction.

At the end of the luncheon, the nominees posed for their traditional class portrait.

Nominees for the 89th Oscars® were celebrated at a luncheon held at the Beverly Hilton, Monday, February 6, 2017. The 89th Oscars will air on Sunday, February 26, live on ABC.

The front row featured some of the biggest names, including Stone, Damon, Portman and Spencer. On the other side were Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga and Justin Timberlake.

Huddled in the fourth row were the petite Casey Affleck and Michelle Williams, costars from “Manchester by the Sea.” Meanwhile, the statuesque Nicole Kidman and Dev Patel from “Lion” stood in the fifth row.

The 89th Oscars will be held Feb. 26 and air live on ABC. Jimmy Kimmel is set to host.

    Film Review: 'Shazam!'

    In “Shazam!,” Zachary Levi brings off something so winning it’s irresistible. He plays a square-jawed, rippling-muscled man of might, with a cheesy Day-Glo lighting bolt affixed to his chest, who projects an insanely wholesome and old-fashioned idea of what a superhero can be. But he’s also playing a breathless teenage kid on the inside, and [...]
