The biggest award show of the year in Hollywood will take place in just a few weeks. The 84th Academy Awards is set to begin on Sunday, February 26, 2012, with some of the biggest names in Tinsel Town.
While it's always fun to watch the biggest celebs walk the red carpet, do you remember who made the memorable trek back at the 64th Academy Awards two decades ago? Here's a little refresher to take you back in time to the Oscars that took place on March 30, 1992.
Who could forget Juliette Lewis' hairstyle? She wore cornrows in her hair, while she had actor Brad Pitt on her arm. Although some made fun of her 1920s style gown, we thought her dress rocked, but her hair, not so much.
Lewis was up for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the film, "Cape Fear." The 38-year-old recently told Billy Bush of Access Hollywood Live, "I would like to discuss my hair because I thought I was a real renegade. And I still think I am. I think that's bad ass! Who wears cornrows to the Oscars? I do."
We like that she's not afraid to be different! This year, the actress will return to television on the NBC drama, "The Firm."
Two decades ago, Demi Moore looked amazing wearing a stunning vintage lilac gown and matching opera gloves. Just 29 years old, she was the picture of health and married to actor Bruce Willis with two young daughters at home.
In 2012, the 49-year-old brunette is going through an extremely difficult time, facing her third divorce and struggling with health issues. The "Margin Call" actress is said to be recovering after she was rushed to the hospital last month, and sadly, we can't imagine her making an appearance at the Academy Awards show this year.
Susan Sarandon was nominated for Best Actress for her performance in the blockbuster hit, "Thelma and Louise in 1992. The very pregnant, and beautiful, redhead walked the red carpet with boyfriend Tim Robbins, and went on to deliver their little boy, Miles, five weeks later. She lost the award to Jodie Foster for her performance in "Silence of the Lambs," but Sarandon's glow made her the star to shine that evening.
It's hard to believe that the "Dead Man Walking" actress is 65 years old and has spent over four decades in show business. She looks incredible, and still has an active Hollywood career. Sarandon co-stars with Jason Segel and Ed Helms in the upcoming film, "Jeff Who Lives at Home," and she's set to join the Showtime comedy, "The Big C," for its third season.
Geena Davis was nominated along with her co-star for Best Actress in "Thelma and Louise." Although she was outstanding in the role, her dress that evening was one of the worst of all-time. The "Beetlejuice" actress wore a white dress with white gloves and black tights. The short dress had a long train that looked like she'd been attacked with several rolls of toilet paper. Despite showing off her amazing long legs, the ensemble was quite hideous, and unforgettable.
20 years later, the "A League of Their Own" actress can be seen in the A&E production of "Coma," a four-hour adaptation of the Robin Cook novel, set to air on Memorial Day this year.
It was Michael Douglas who presented Jodie Foster with her Best Actress award in 1992. That year, he appeared in the erotic thriller, "Basic Instinct," and he was still married to his first wife, Diandra. They went on to divorce five years later.
Fast forward two decades, and the "Wall Street: Money Never Talks" star has now been to married to his second wife, the beautiful Catherine Zeta-Jones, for over 11 years. He recently went through a battle with cancer, but early last year was said to have won that struggle, and is in much better health.
