Academy Awards nominees including Meryl Streep, Sandra Bullock and George Clooney have been ordered not to cry during their acceptance speech.


The Hollywood stars gathered in Los Angeles for the annual Oscar nominees luncheon in Beverly Hills on Monday, and organisers of the upcoming show took time to hand out advice for the potential winners.


Oscar co-producer Bill Mechanic urged the stars to hold back their emotions once they reach the coveted podium, because teary-eyed thanks are "the single most-hated thing on the show."

奥斯卡颁奖礼的制片人之一Bill Mechanic请各位明星们拿到小金人儿的时候一定要控制自己的情绪,因为一把鼻涕一把泪地致谢实在是“最叫人讨厌的事情了”。

Co-producer Adam Shankman introduced plans for the winners to give two speeches - a short thanks in front of the audience and a more personal version to cameras backstage, which can then be emailed to friends and family or posted online.

另一位制片人Adam Shankman则亮出了获奖感言一式两份的主意:面对全体观众用一份简短的致谢词;待回到后台再对着相机录一段更私人的版本,用以电邮给亲朋好友或者在网上发布。

The Academy Awards will take place in L.A. on 7 March.
