The Oscar Buzz is in full force as the countdown to the red carpet get’s closer! Let’s talk about the best looks we’ve seen hit the Oscar red-carpet over the years!
My number three look is Sandra Bullock at the 2010 Oscars—the same
Year she won Best Actress for Blindside and split with scandalous
husband, Jesse James—Bullock donned a gorgeous silver
beaded Marchesa gown with an embroidered bodice. Her hair was total
Hollywood Glam, parted on the side with a loosely curled end. Her makeup
was flawless to, with a pink lip and defined eyes—I don’t think Sandy
couldn’t have looked any better.
And number two goes to Reese Witherspoon at the 2007 Oscars—the big
Screen star sported a gorgeous amethyst gown from Nina Ricci’s label.
The gorgeous frock was a showstopper with a fitted bodice that melted into
an elaborate train—The bombshell rocked bangs and straight locks perfect
make up and very little accessories, but with a gown like that, you
don’t need much. This look is hard to beat and definitely is a winner in my
And can I get a drumroll please, my number one best dressed from over the years has to go to the Red Carpet Queen, Angelina Jolie in 2004. She sported a gorgeous ice princess floor length gown by Marc Bouwer and she couldn’t have looked any more stunning. The beauty paired it with a statement necklace, hair pulled back and her signature makeup. No wonder this stunner snagged Brad Pitt.

In support of the American effort in World War II, the statuettes were made of plaster and were traded in for gold ones after the war had ended. The root of the name Oscar is contested. One biography of Bette Davis claims that she named the Oscar after her first husband, band leader Harmon Oscar Nelson; one of the earliest mentions in print of the term Oscar dates back to a Time magazine article about the 1934 6th Academy Awards and to Bette Davis’s receipt of the award in 1936. Walt Disney is also quoted as thanking the Academy for his Oscar as early as 1932. Another claimed origin is that the Academy’s Executive Secretary, Margaret Herrick, first saw the award in 1931 and made reference to the statuette’s reminding her of her ‘Uncle Oscar’ (a nickname for her cousin Oscar Pierce). Columnist Sidney Skolsky was present during Herrick’s naming and seized the name in his byline, ‘Employees have affectionately dubbed their famous statuette ‘Oscar”. The trophy was officially dubbed the ‘Oscar’ in 1939 by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences. Another legend reports that the Norwegian-American Eleanor Lilleberg, executive secretary to Louis B. Mayer, saw the first statuette and exclaimed, ‘It looks like King Oscar II!’. At the end of the day she asked, ‘What should we do with Oscar, put him in the vault?’ and the name stuck. Since 1950, the statuettes have been legally encumbered by the requirement that neither winners nor their heirs may sell the statuettes without first offering to sell them back to the Academy for US$1. If a winner refuses to agree to this stipulation, then the Academy keeps the statuette. Academy Awards not protected by this agreement have been sold in public auctions and private deals for six-figure sums. While the Oscar is under the ownership of the recipient, it is essentially not on the open market. The case of Michael Todd’s grandson trying to sell Todd’s Oscar statuette illustrates that there are some who do not agree with this idea. When Todd’s grandson attempted to sell Todd’s Oscar statuette to a movie prop collector, the Academy won the legal battle by getting a permanent injunction. Although Oscar sales transactions have been successful, some buyers have subsequently returned the statuettes to the Academy, which keeps them in its treasury. Since 2004, Academy Award nomination results have been announced to the public in late January. Prior to 2004, nomination results were announced publicly in early February. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), a professional honorary organization, maintains a voting membership of 5,835 as of 2007. Academy membership is divided into different branches, with each representing a different discipline in film production. Actors constitute the largest voting bloc, numbering 1,311 members (22 percent) of the Academy’s composition. Votes have been certified by the auditing firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (and its predecessor Price Waterhouse) for the past 73 annual awards ceremonies. All AMPAS members must be invited to join by the Board of Governors, on behalf of Academy Branch Executive Committees. Membership eligibility may be achieved by a competitive nomination or a member may submit a name based on other significant contribution to the field of motion pictures. New membership proposals are considered annually. The Academy does not publicly disclose its membership, although as recently as 2007 press releases have announced the names of those who have been invited to join. The 2007 release also stated that it has just under 6,000 voting members. While the membership had been growing, stricter policies have kept its size steady since then. Currently, according to Rules 2 and 3 of the official Academy Awards Rules, a film must open in the previous calendar year, from midnight at the start of January 1 to midnight at the end of December 31, in Los Angeles County, California, to qualify (except for the Best Foreign Language Film). For example, the 2010 Best Picture winner, The Hurt Locker, was actually first released in 2008, but did not qualify for the 2009 awards as it did not play its Oscar-qualifying run in Los Angeles until mid-2009, thus qualifying for the 2010 awards. Rule 2 states that a film must be feature-length, defined as a minimum of 40 minutes, except for short subject awards, and it must exist either on a 35 mm or 70 mm film print or in 24 frame/s or 48 frame/s progressive scan digital cinema format with native resolution not less than 1280×720. Producers must submit an Official Screen Credits online form before the deadline; in case it is not submitted by the defined deadline, the film will be ineligible for Academ
