At the annual Oscar luncheon, A-list nominees mingled at a banquet where everyone is a winner.

Ben Affleck, who raked in top directing honors at the Golden Globe, Directors Guild, Screen Actors Guild and Critics' Choice awards for Iran hostage movie "Argo," addressed his best director Oscar snub at the luncheon.

"I mean we got seven nominations including best picture, I'm elated by that, truly, genuinely thrilled and like I said, there are nine amazing movies, any of which could win, any of which would deserve to win if they did, so I don't get into worrying about who got what and who didn't get what. I've had many, many, many, many, many years watching from home."

Amy Adams, nominated for a best supporting actress Oscar for "The Master," told the media she was having fun at the luncheon.
