Oscar nominees gathered for lunch at the Beverly Hills Hotel yesterday and we got the update on their most important task before the March 7th ceremony—finding a dress! "If I have to wear a trash bag, I'll belt it with rhinestones and make it work, so I am not panicking. But there is something exquisite that I've seen, it is a work of art and that may be the one I choose," Best Actress nominee Sandra Bullock told us. Precious star Gabourey Sidibe is not as relaxed: "My stomach is hurting over it a little but—I'm scared! I got a bunch of sketches through e-mail and said I loved them, but I lied!"
Best Actress nominee Carey Mulligan, who has been texting back-and-forth with Sidibe about what to wear, is letting her imagination run wild: "I've got dream dresses in my head but don't know who will make them! Hopefully someone good!"
