Earlier this afternoon, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Billy Crudup, and Michael Shannon hosted a lunch at Monkey Bar in honor of their good friend Michael Stuhlbarg, who recently got a Golden Globe (but not a SAG) nomination for the Coen brothers' A Serious Man. Given that the hosts were all Academy members, we wanted to know, when it comes to Oscar voting, do they vote for their friends? "Sure, I'd vote for Michael," said Shannon. "Although, I don't really feel qualified to vote since this is, like, the only movie I've seen." Crudup: "Of course you do, but only because you love their work and know it's the best. And because you're only friends with winners."
