NEWS/PHOTOS: Vanity Fair Hollywood Issue...

As is the case with every year around Oscar time, this upcoming issue of Vanity Fair is the Hollywood Issue, and this years theme is "Something Just Clicked."

Some of these actor-director teams have a history together—remember Ron Howard and Tom Hanks’s breakthrough, Splash, a quarter-century ago?—while others produced their first mind-melds in 2008. Sam Mendes and Kate Winslet even brought marriage and kids to the Revolutionary Road set. But in each case the chemistry was profound, the effect exponential. From Gus Van Sant and Sean Penn to John Patrick Shanley and Meryl Streep, Annie Leibovitz photographs 10 partnerships that helped generate more than four dozen Oscar nominations this season. Related: Krista Smith goes behind the scenes at the shoots. Plus: Video from the photo shoots.

Below is my personal favorite picture, a haunting composite shot of Best Supporting Actor nominee, and probable winner, the late Heath Ledger, and The Dark Knight auteur, Chris Nolan. It's just an amazing photo, and one that I can't wait to post on my wall when this issue hits shelves. All photos were taken by Annie Lebowitz.

Go see something good!
