Oscar Noms Talk Oscar Gowns!
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!"
