BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) – Nick Nolle, nominated for an Oscar for “The Prince of Tides,” says he likes fellow nominee Robin Williams’ idea for how to choose the winner: “We should all get in the pool and swim for it.”
Nolte and a host of other stars turned out Tuesday for the Academy Awards nominees’ luncheon at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
Previous years have seen sparse turnouts, but half of this year’s nominees attended, including Warren Beatty, Geena Davis, Laura Dern, Jodie Foster, Anthony Hopkins, Diane Ladd, Michael Lerner, Juliette Lewis, Bette Midler and Barbra Streisand.
Streisand , who was nominated as the producer of “The Prince of Tides” but not as director or actress, said she wasn’t sure why she was passed over in the directing category.
“How much of it is the fact that women are not nominated in other areas? I don’t know,” she said. “I can’t blame anybody. Blame makes you a victim. I’m nota victim.”
The 64th annual Academy Awards show is March 30
