Oscar Nominees Told To Keep The Speeches Shot

Subscribe To:

This year's OSCAR nominees (04) have been instructed to keep their speeches short on the big night, during a glitzy Los Angeles luncheon with the producer Joe Roth.

The AMERICA'S SWEETHEARTS director was joined by contenders such as DIANE KEATON, Charlize Theron, Sean Penn and Tim Robbins at the Beverly Hills Hotel for the traditional bash - and during the star-studded event, Roth took the opportunity to request restraint from the potential winners.

He told the assembled nominees, "One of the uncomfortable realities of the awards process is that Oscar night is all about the winners, but today is all about the nominees. Enjoy the night. I think it's going to be a fast, funny, beautiful show."

The Academy Awards will take place on 29 February (04) at Los Angeles' Kodak Theatre.
