Oscars 2020: Renee Zellweger, Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and more attend star-studded luncheon

Nominees for this year's Academy Awards rubbed shoulders at the annual get-together

This year's Oscars are drawing ever closer, and ahead of the glitzy awards taking place last month, stars of the big screen have come together to fete those nominated.

The annual luncheon for actors, filmmakers and crew up for an Academy Award took place in Los Angeles on Monday, January 27, ahead of the awards ceremony on Sunday, February 9.

Nominees such as Renee Zellweger, Brad Pitt, Charlize Theron and Leonardo DiCaprio, all of whom have recognised for performances in films such as Judy and Once Upon a Time ... In Hollywood, were in attendance at the event, held at the Dolby Theatre.

Cynthia Erivo, Robert De Niro and Florence Pugh also made an appearance on the night, alongside directors including Sam Mendes, Todd Phillips and Greta Gerwig.

Following the event, the the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences released a photo of all this year's Oscar nominees.

Menus for the annual luncheon were also completely plant-based, following similar moves at this year's Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild awards.

The academy said it was an "organisation of storytellers from around the world, and we owe our global membership a commitment to supporting the planet".
