Overheard at the Nominess Luncheon!

On Monday, February 15 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA, the Academy held a congenial luncheon for the folks nominated for this year’s Oscars. Many of the nominees went back to the press room to answer questions posed by the media. Here are a few of their quotes:

Gibourey Sidibe

"Steve Martin is the one person I want to meet. My mom had a crush on Steve Martin, and we used to watch The Jerk every day. I’m excited that the show will be hosted by [Alec Baldwin’s character on 30 Rock] Jack Donaghy and The Jerk."

- Gibourey Sidibe, Best Actress Nominee, Precious


"I’ve been blessed with crazy money – for movies that aren’t great. Now I work for less and will work on the back end. I was a football fan – but not for the right reasons before – it was because of who was playing."

- Sandra Bullock, Best Actress Nominee, The Blind Side
