Marisa Tomei, Amy Adams, Penelope Cruz, Taraji P. Henson and Viola Davis, 2009 Oscar Nominees Luncheon, Los AngelesL.A.'s Beverly Hilton Hotel was filled with Oscar buzz as the class of 2009 came together to celebrate at the 81st Academy Awards nominees luncheon. Marisa Tomei, Amy Adams, Penelope Cruz, Taraji P. Henson and Viola Davis were among the nearly one hundred and twenty nominees who received certificates to commemorate their Oscar nods and posed for the traditional "class picture" with their fellow filmmakers. "My insides are crazy!" admitted Benjamin Button star Henson (in Alberta Ferretti). "[I'll be] driving along and everything is fine and then I think about Oscar and I scream. Then I pull it together. Hopefully that'll pass soon."
