Check Out the Full-Size 86th Academy Awards Nominees Class Photo
The 86th Academy Awards are just a few weeks away, and today, all the nominees gathered for the annual luncheon at the Beverly Hilton. It was a massive collection of some of the most amazing talent in Hollywood today from Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy for Before Midnight to Jonah Hill and Leonardo DiCaprio from The Wolf of Wall Street. And the big names from behind the camera were there too including Steve McQueen and Alfonso Cuaron, the filmmakers presumed frontrunners for Best Director, and their films 12 Years a Slave and Gravity for Best Picture. We have a big photo of the entire acclaimed crew of nominees at the event, just like a yearbook photo, for your perusal below. Look!

And here's the photo split up into three sections so you can see it easier:
There's some more shots from floor level via Anthony Breznican from Entertainment Weekly and The Academy on Twitter, so be sure to check those out as well. It's so crazy to see so much talent in the room, like a State of the Union assembly of filmmakers and actors. Too bad Ice Cube isn't nominated so if someone attacked the luncheon he could save the day (that might be the only time we lament the lack of an Oscar nomination for Ice Cube). Anyway, The 86th Academy Awards air at 7pm ET on March 2nd live on ABC. We'll be posting the winners live as they are announced so be sure to check back in a few weeks. Ready?
