The guest list includes “American Hustle” stars Amy Adams, Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper; Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto of “Dallas Buyers Club”; Sandra Bullock of “Gravity”; Lupita Nyong’o of “12 Years a Slave”; and many more.

Each nominee for best director is also on the guest list, including Alfonso Cuarn, Steve McQueen, Alexander Payne, David O. Russell and Martin Scorsese.
