Oscars Red Carpet Rewind: Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita Nyong'o, Angelina Jolie, More Best-Dressed Stars Of The Last Decade
The Oscars are back!
The 93rd Academy Awards ceremony, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, will honor the best films of 2020 and early 2021. The ceremony is scheduled to take place in Los Angeles, at both the Dolby Theatre and Union Station, on April 25, two months later than originally planned, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on cinema.
For the third consecutive ceremony, there will be no singular host. The Academy instead announced an "ensemble cast" of 15 presenters on April 12 that will be involved in the ceremony in some way, including Angela Bassett, Halle Berry, Laura Dern, Harrison Ford, Regina King, Joaquin Phoenix, Brad Pitt, Reese Witherspoon, Renée Zellweger, Zendaya and more. They include all four of the acting winners from the 92nd ceremony, upholding the long-standing tradition that the acting awards at the Academy Awards be presented by the previous year's winner.
Most excitedly, the ceremony will be entirely live and in person following a series of virtual and hybrid award shows. And yes, that means the return of the red carpet!
As we get excited for Sunday and speculate who will wear what, OK! revisits some of the most iconic fashion moments in the award show's history.
