Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Anatomy of a Fall Dog

Board of Governors member DeVon Franklin kicked off the event by announcing the call for participants, starting with acclaimed composer Laura Karpman of “American Fiction” and ending with the talented Robert Downey Jr. ., nominated for his supporting role in “American Fiction”. Oppenheimer.

Here are some of the key takeaways from the event.

The dog from “Anatomy of a Fall” stole the show.

The star of the day was the adorable dog from “Anatomy of a Fall.” Messi, the canine actor who plays Snoopy in Justine Triet’s film, stole the hearts of almost every nominee present. From Ryan Gosling and America Ferrera of “Barbie” fame to musical sensation Billie Eilish, everyone seemed enchanted by the furry star. Triet’s original screenplay could have won an Oscar thanks to the immense affection this season’s favorite dog received.

So who won the coveted “clap-o-meter” title?

Journalists and social media enthusiasts raced to determine which candidate received the most applause during the group photo session. Names like Greta Gerwig (“Barbie”), Christopher Nolan (“Oppenheimer”), Celine Song (“Past Lives”), Paul Giamatti (“The Holdovers”), Carey Mulligan (“Maestro”) and Lily Gladstone (“Killers”) of the Flower Moon”) were buzzing with impatience.

Keep your speeches short!

Brevity is key! Before roll call, AMPAS President Janet Yang took the stage to urge future winners to keep their acceptance speeches brief (less than 45 seconds). She humorously referenced Javier Bardem’s succinct speech during his supporting role in 2007’s “No Country for Old Men,” which lasted just 37 seconds. The audience laughed as they realized this year’s Oscars would start an hour early due to daylight saving time, leading to last-minute adjustments to attendees’ schedules for March 10.

“Oppenheimer” will win many Oscars.

Christopher Nolan’s cinematic masterpiece has captured the hearts of many, with many conversations among nominees echoing the sentiment that “this is the year of Oppenheimer.” The final Oscar tally remains to be seen, but the conclusion seems inevitable.

Who didn’t show up?

Supporting actress Danielle Brooks of “The Color Purple” was unable to attend due to filming commitments in New Zealand. Additionally, absent were two-time nominee Jonathan Glazer (“The Zone of Interest”), Jodie Foster (“Nyad”), Robert DeNiro (“Killers of the Flower Moon”) and Hayao Miyazaki (“The Boy and the heron”).

Emma Stone and Colman Domingo exchanged phone numbers. I hope this means they will work on something.

Emma Stone, a two-time nominee for “Poor Things,” was seen in a friendly exchange with best actor nominee Colman Domingo of “Rustin” and her husband Raúl Domingo. A friendship has hopefully been formed, and a possible future collaboration, perhaps? And yes, we caught up with Domingo on the “Jeopardy” craze that has taken over Stone for weeks now, and she still really wants to be on the syndicated program. ABC owner Bob Iger was in the room. She should have mentioned it.

The “Spider-Man” voice actors came to celebrate.

The entire team behind “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” graced the event, including producers Phil Lord, Chris Miller and Amy Pascal, alongside directors Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers and Justin K. Thompson . Among the attendees were the voices behind the characters, like Hailee Steinfeld (Gwen Stacey/Spider-Gwen), who engaged in lively conversations with Finneas and Billie Eilish. Could they discuss new musical collaborations? Additionally, Academy Award winner Daniel Kaluuya lent his voice to black British punk rocker Hobie Brown/Spider-Punk, adding even more excitement to the gathering.
