As the nominees for this year's Oscars gathered at a luncheon in Beverly Hills on Monday, industry veterans took the opportunity to reminisce on their journey, some for the first time, to the Academy Awards platform."This nomination would not have come when I was in my twenties, because I was figuring out how to do this," said J.K.
