: The Guardian lists the no-show stars — Finnish director Aki Kaurismaki (well, then cancel the f’ing show!), Will Smith, Rings director Peter Jackson, Tom Hanks… the “waverers,” Cate Blanchet and Nicole Kidman (oops, Nicole showed up)… and the “silent protesters:”
Julianne Moore (nominated for both The Hours and Far From Heaven), Pedro Amodovar (nominated for both best director and best screenplay), Adrien Brody (best actor nominee) and guests Ben Affleck and Dustin Hoffman will attend the ceremony wearing peace signs on the designer clothes. They insist, though, that this will be their one (very subtle) symbol of protest. Otherwise, they shall be keeping their opinions to themselves.
