Psssst — here's who is skipping the Oscar nominees lunch

February 2, 2008 |  5:18 pm

On Monday afternoon, the academy hosts its annual luncheon for Oscar nominees at the Beverly Hilton. Expected among the crowd of more than 100 hopefuls are all five directors who made the cut as well as all of the nominated writers. However, the acting branch will be represented by only 11 of the 19 nominees.

Double nominee Cate Blanchett will be a no-show (as she was last year), as will lead actor contenders Daniel Day-Lewis, Johnny Depp and Tommy Lee Jones, supporting actor hopefuls Philip Seymour Hoffman and Tom Wilkinson and supporting actress nominees Saoirse Ronan and Tilda Swinton.

Depp has shown great style, showing up for wins that should have been his. He's earned the right to sit out some of these functions.

That's too bad about Mr. Depp. It would have been nice to see him again after all the nice "sightings" of late. Here's to a long-overdue win for the fabulous Johnny.
