Take a minute out of your day to play ‘find Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling’

Way more gratifying than Where's Wally

Yesterday saw the annual lunch held by the Academy (yes, of the Oscars) and it’s basically a HUGE A-list class photo of all the nominees. What we wouldn’t do to be a fly on that wall because everyyyyyyone was there. Can you spot them all? Ok. Let us help you because it’s way more interesting than just staring at a load of suits, we promise.

Presenting our newest class of nominees! #OscarsLunch #Oscars

Start by searching for Ryan Gosling – because there are worst ways to waste your time – and we’ll give you the clue that he’s folding his arms and wearing an off-grey check suit. (Ahem, check the top row… and yes, that’s a dreamy Dev Patel underneath him to the right of Nicole Kidman and left of Mel Gibson.)

Now, let’s find Emma Stone, yup, she’s on the bottom row sandwiched between Matt Damon and Octavia Spencer. So casual.

Look to the left of Matt Damon and you’ll find a pregnant Natalie Portman.

Oh, and if you spotted someone wearing a green cap and grey jumper, then you’ve found Pharrell. He’s to the left of the giant Oscar wearing a NASA sweatshirt because that’s how cool AF he is. He defies black tie dress codes.

OK, now it’s time to look for Justin Timberlake who is on the bottom right row next to a yellow-blouse wearing Ruth Negga.

Who else can you spot, you ask? Look out for Denzel Washington and Casey Affleck who you’ll spot from his voluminous hair and beard that’s almost overshadowing his Manchester By the Sea co-star Michelle Williams. They’re all towards the left.

Now, we don’t know about you but that was a pretty useful ten minutes or so spent. We can’t stop staring at it – mainly because our class photos were never this cool or star-studded and the whole thing is actually quite adorable.
