Brad and George Join Michelle, Viola, Rooney, Melissa, and More For an Oscars Lunch

The Beverly Hilton was host to many of this year's Oscar nominees at a luncheon thrown by the Academy in LA today. Brad Pitt started his morning with an appearance on CBS before meeting up with pal George Clooney and Moneyball costar Jonah Hill for the afternoon. Best actress nominee Michelle Williams wore a quirky Victoria Beckham dress for the occasion, though she admitted she's still on the hunt for an Oscars red-carpet gown, while Viola Davis stepped out in hot pink. Bridesmaids's Melissa McCarthy posed in front of a golden Oscar statue as did Rooney Mara, who wore simple black and white and talked about the racy piercings she got for her The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo character. Octavia Spencer, Jean Dujardin, Meryl Streep, and others came out to be honored and chat about being recognized by the Academy. Make sure to check out the best quotes from the Oscars luncheon to see what Brad, George, Michelle, and others had to say.
