The Five: Awards Season


4. Advice From Awards-Season Veterans
For the first time since 2010, the Oscars are in March (blame the Olympics), which means a longer-than-usual season for the contenders. Here’s some advice from those who’ve been through it before.

Octavia Spencer
“You got to stay hydrated. You got to take your vitamins. Monitor your expectations. And ­Emergen-C. Focus on something else. Right now, I’m not even thinking about awards season—I’m renovating a house, so I just want to move into my damn house!”

Jonah Hill
“Sleep. Water. Emergen-C. Gum. Passport. Those are the only things you need to survive.”

Bérénice Bejo
“I have no idea how to survive awards season! [The Artist] was two years ago, and I still don’t know how I survived. Just enjoy it. It’s special to be nominated, I guess.”
