The 2014 Oscar Nominees Luncheon took place Feb. 10 at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Calif. Nominees gathered to have lunch, pose for photos, receive their official Academy Award nomination certificate, and do interviews. (The 86th annual Oscar ceremony takes place March 2, 2014, at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. ABC has the live U.S. telecast of the show at 7 p.m. EST/4 p.m. PST.) Here is what this Oscar nominee said when doing a brief press conference interview in the Oscar Nominees Luncheon’s press room.

ALFONSO CUARON

Nominated for:
Best Picture
Best Director
(“Gravity”)

What do you hope viewers of “Gravity” take away from seeing the movie?

Well, first of all, it’s the emotional experience of the film. We go through adversities every single day of our lives, and we go through periods of big adversity. And those adversities are what shape who we are and pretty much our attitude toward adversity. In many ways, it’s about embracing those adversities.

A lot of people in your Mexico and Latin America in general are rooting for you to win at the Oscars. Can you comment on that support?

I’d say that we’re very grateful to the Mexican and Hispanic crowd and the whole Hispanic gang that has been so supportive of this whole process, from the moment that the movie was released and now through all the celebrations. Thank you so much.
