How 35 Celebrities Have Changed At Their First Academy Award Vs. Their Latest One

The Academy Award, aka, the Oscars, is one of the most prestigious awards in the film industry. While this award is commonly used to honor outstanding actors or movies, it is also an occasion for other purposes.

And as much as we love seeing actors getting their much-deserved awards, we also love how they look before the show started.

Dressing up in dazzling gowns and couture from designers has become a culture for celebrities. This is why the red carpet before the Academy Award is such a hot spot for paparazzi, cameramen, and celebrities.

After all, with the right look, some will instantly propel to first place on the entertainment news or magazine covers. Zendaya, Sandra Oh, and Amanda Seyfried still have some of the most iconic red carpet moments. Even when they go home empty-handed.

So why not see how stunning celebrities are at the Academy Award show? Here are 35 side-by-side comparisons of celebrities at their first Oscar vs. their latest one.
