OK, it's not so much that they didn't want you to see it—more like, it just didn't quite make the final cut. But this is Oscar weekend, after all, and seeing as how we're in the general vicinity of Hollywood, we're pretty much required to engage in some kind of hyperbole.
That being said, we did manage to get our hands on an exclusive deleted scene from the Academy Award-nominated Up in the Air, featuring not only George Clooney but fellow nominees Vera Farmiga and (our new BFF!) Anna Kendrick.
And those feet-draggers who still haven't made it to the theater need not worry: the clip, which takes place as the leading man prepares for his sister's wedding, is more or less spoiler-free.
So watch it, love it, buy the DVD or Blu-ray when it's released on Tuesday (with more deleted footage), and then get yourself ready for Sunday night's festivities with our Oscar Prediction Quiz! If you promise to take it, we promise to waive our 10 percent cut of whatever you win in this year's Oscar pool.
Get everything we have on the Oscars.
