Thirteen may be an unlucky number ... but 2013 certainly is not – at least for this year's class of Oscar nominees.
Everyone who is up for an Academy Award at the 85th annual ceremony on Feb. 24 was invited to attend a luncheon at the Beverly Hilton hotel on Monday.
There, Bradley Cooper, Hugh Jackman, Naomi Watts, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and more stars – as well as nominees from every category – rubbed elbows and posed for the official class photo.

You go, Girls!
After winning two Golden Globes on Sunday, Lena Dunham beamed while attending HBO's Golden Globe party at Circa 55 Restaurant in Beverly Hills.
The Girls creator – who wore an eggplant-colored Zac Posen gown during the awards – seemed "too excited" to make it through the line of waiting reporters, an onlooker tells PEOPLE.

This year's Oscars may not take place until Feb. 24, but the ceremony's host, Seth MacFarlane, already started earning his salary Thursday morning – by joining Emma Stone to announce the nominees for the 85th annual Academy Awards from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' headquarters in Beverly Hills.
And the name that kept coming up: Lincoln, which reaped the lion's share number of nominations, 12, including those for Best Picture, Best Director Steven Spielberg, Best Actor Daniel Day-Lewis and Supporting Actress Sally Field.
Other highly recognized films were Life of Pi, with 11 nominations; Les Misérables, with nine; and Argo, with seven, though, surprisingly, not one for its director Ben Affleck.

Time to start the party: Thursday morning brought good news to Tinseltown – with the announcement of the Golden Globe nominations from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
Among the major names topping the list – nominees were announced by Megan Fox, Ed Helms and Jessica Alba – are such favorites as Anne Hathaway and Sally Field (for their respective supporting roles in Les Misérables and Lincoln), Nicole Kidman (for HBO's Hemingway and Gellhorn and the film The Paperboy), Leonardo DiCaprio (for his supporting role in Django Unchained) and Argo director Ben Affleck, who'll compete in that category along with Kathryn Bigelow, for Zero Dark Thirty; Ang Lee, for Life of Pi; Steven Spielberg, for Lincoln; and Quentin Tarantino, for Django Unchained.

Let's settle the debate. Did we need a Spidey reboot five years after his last outing? Nope. This Spider-Man's solid script and capable effects simply aren't vibrant enough to warrant rehashing high-school shutterbug Peter Parker's life-altering spider bite. The performances, though – now those are extraordinary.
Start with the supporting cast. For gravitas, Martin Sheen and Sally Field play parental figures Uncle Ben and Aunt May, with Sheen giving Ben the fiery righteousness needed to orient Peter's moral compass in darker days.
Rhys Ifans adds nuanced edge as mad scientist Curt Connors, while Dennis Leary stiffens his spine as police captain George Stacy, out to nab a certain web-slinging vigilante.

It takes quite the woman to get these heavy hitters mobilized for a cause! Oprah Winfrey, Robert Redford, Jessica Simpson, Deepak Chopra and Laura Ling are among the newsmakers and Hollywood names slated to headline at the Women's Conference 2010 hosted by California First Lady Maria Shriver and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.
With a mission of "empowering, inspiring and educating women", the annual conference expands to three days this year, Shriver will announce Thursday. It kicks off in Long Beach, Calif., on Sunday, October 24, with a March on Alzheimer's to raise awareness and funds to fight the disease.

It's been 44 years since Sally Field first surfed into America's living rooms as TV's Gidget, and though she still looks far better than most 63-year-olds, the current star of ABC's Brothers & Sisters can't help but look at the calendar – and in the mirror.
"I see myself on TV and I say, 'Oh, I wish that weren't happening to my neck. And your face is falling down, and your eyes are so puffy,' " the double Oscar winner tells Good Housekeeping for its March issue, on sale Feb. 10.
Of course, there is a familiar remedy, though Fields isn't sold on it. "I see some of the women [who have had plastic surgery] who I thought when they were younger were so beautiful," she says. "Now I think, Oh, dear, don't do that! And it seems to be terribly disrespectful to who they are now."

Watch It: Desperate Housewives (ABC, 9 p.m. ET) You can't care about television and not want the best for this series, which in its first season achieved a perfect synthesis of diva camp and solid serial drama. Then came the second season, a real muddle. Now what about season 3? In the opener, thrust into the foreground is prim Stepford beauty Bree (Marcia Cross). Her new love, the dentist Orson Hodge (Kyle MacLachlan), has a missing wife in his past. This unpleasant fact we learn from that excellent actress Laurie Metcalf (of Roseanne fame), who turns up as a sort of scolding messenger of doom. It's all very Bronte. There's something persistent and powerful about the show's underpinning of (fatally) abused women.
