95th Oscars Nominee Luncheon Offers Many Happy Reunions and Annual “Class Photo”


The annual Oscars® Nominees Luncheon was held on Monday, February 13, 2023, at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles where many of the nominated actors, producers, directors and crew were in attendance, many for the first and last time before Oscar night on Sunday, March 14.

Academy Motion Picture Arts and Scientists President Janet Yang addressed the nominees in attendance to let them know what to look forward to at the ceremony next month, but warned that things like last year’s famed “Slap” would not be tolerated.

Not at the luncheon were the likes of Avatar: The Way of Water director James Cameron (nominated for producing the sequel), The Banshees of Inisherin actor Barry Keoghan, or Leading Actress nominees Ana de Armas and Andrea Riseborugh. Three of those nominated for Original Song also didn’t make the luncheon, including David ByrneLady Gaga, and Rihanna (who had just performed at the Super Bowl LVII half-time show a day earlier).

You can see a few select photos, including the annual “class photo,” from the luncheon below, all provided by the Academy. (Click on images for larger versions.)

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
