From the very first red carpet arrival to the last Best Picture envelope opening, the Oscars are always full of glitz, glamour and a whole lot of drama. Since the Academy Awards were first held in 1929, this iconic ceremony has had countless unforgettable moments involving the biggest stars and most famous movies in the world. Aside from the groundbreaking wins and surprising snubs, the Academy Awards have been known for delivering memorable acceptance speeches, extravagant fashion and definitely some of the most awkward moments to ever air on live television.

If this were any other year, we'd be spending these final few weeks leading up to the Oscars bolting from movie theater to movie theater, frantic to catch a screening of every Best Picture nominee. If there’s a movie theater popcorn-shaped hole in your heart, come sit by us. Ever since March 2020, we've been perfecting our home theater experience; now, over a year later, we've gotten it down to a science.
The Academy Award–nominated sets, ranging from 1920s Chicago to a futuristic city, are realistic, but the competition is getting just as real. Each spring, the team here at ELLE Decor looks forward to seeing which films the Academy Awards deem worthy of Best Production Design. This year’s nominees, in particular, seem to capture it all, from a sweltering Chicago summer to present-day London to a city of the future.
Unlike previous awards shows, the Oscars will be a mostly in-person event.
The Oscar-nominated film dramatizes a very real court battle. The highly versatile Sacha Baron Cohen portrays Abbie Hoffman, one of the trial defendants and the cofounder of the Youth International Party (also known as the "Yippies"). Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, fresh off his Emmy win for Watchmen, plays Black Panther Party cofounder Bobby Seale.

The shaker is perhaps the most important element of any home bar. Add some pizzazz to your bar with these statement-making tumblers by Martino Gamper for Lobmeyr. Complete with a julep strainer, a bar spoon, and a mixing glass, this set by Crafthouse for Fortessa also comes with two double old-fashioned glasses.
Each year, the best picture nominations at the Oscars seem to fall to the same type of movies. There is always space for a film backed by Disney.
The 2021 Oscars production might be different than years past, but the 93rd Academy Awards show will go on this coming Sunday, April 25th, on ABC. While we're not sure what that will look like, we can bet on a snub and a kerfuffle or two, but one thing remains a bright spot in the increasingly confused Oscars production: celebs showing off stellar beauty looks. Remembering the best of Hollywood's biggest beauty pageant isn't just pretty to look at — it feeds our hairstyling inspo (and Pinterest boards) for years to come. Remember Michelle Williams' perfect side-swept updo and bangs at the 2006 awards? It looks just as fresh today. Think you can't bring versatility to a buzzcut? Check out Danai Gurira at the 2018 awards. Afraid headbands are best left in the seventh grade? Lupita Nyong'o proves otherwise. We could go on — and we do, ahead, with 16 of the most impactful, timeless, and copied hairstyles in Oscars history.Julia Roberts, 2001Coiffed updos can be tricky: Thanks to the popularity of bouffants in the '50s and '60s, the sculpted style can easily feel retro. But with a deep part and just a bit of volume at the crown, Roberts ushered in a take on the style that proved to be timeless (and just as memorable as her black-and-white Valentino gown).Photo: David McNew/Getty Images.Halle Berry, 2002In the annal of perfect pixies, Berry's remains a standout, thanks to piece-y styling and subtle highlights that picked up the golden and burgundy hues of her gown.Photo: KMazur/WireImage.Michelle Williams, 2006The timeless pairing of matte red lipstick with a mustard-yellow dress tends to get the credit for this iconic beauty look, and for good reason... but Michelle’s hair! The bafflingly undone, yet Oscar-worthy updo, thanks in part to perfectly-shaped bangs and face-framing pieces, is one for the books.Photo: Frazer Harrison/Getty Images.Jennifer Aniston, 2009When it comes to effortless beauty, Aniston might be the reigning queen of Cali-cool. But even she kicks it up a notch for Hollywood's biggest night. Here, the star upped her third-day beach wave game with a sleek little hairline braid.Photo: Dan MacMedan/WireImage.Viola Davis, 2012The celebrated actress made a major statement on the 2012 red carpet by ditching her wigs and showing off her natural hair. "Hair by Mae Alice Davis, my mama," she said. She later told us of her decision to wear her natural hair publicly that year: "It was liberating to be on that carpet on my terms."Photo: Gregg DeGuire/Getty Images.Angelina Jolie, 2012This was the year Angelina Jolie's leg got all the attention — and its own Twitter account. But we were (and remain) firmly focused on the full-bombshell hair.Photo: Kevin Mazur/Getty Images.Lupita Nyong'o, 2014We remember Lupita’s first red carpet season like it was yesterday. A standout among so many noteworthy looks from her debut? This Oscars moment, in which she arrived like a princess wearing the most sparkling of Fred Leighton headbands — something that made us run out to cop our own (well, give or take a few figures).Photo: Jeff Vespa/WireImage.Zendaya Coleman, 2015Seeing Zendaya’s gorgeous waist-long locs on the red carpet was a breath of fresh air, and a welcome moment of representation (despite the ignorant comments). “My wearing my hair in locs on an Oscar red carpet was to showcase them in a positive light, to remind people of color that our hair is good enough,” she shared on Instagram.Photo: Jeff Kravitz/WireImage.Jennifer Lopez, 2015If there's one hair look J. Lo does well, it's the grown-up pony. Her trademark style is always perfectly-coiffed: pulled back tight and cascading straight down to the center of her back.Photo: Kevin Mazur/Getty Images.Chrissy Teigen, 2016Sure, Chrissy Teigen's Rapunzel-like braid looks cool from the front, but check out the detail: a cluster of smaller, uneven plaits join a single voluminous braid down her back.Photo: Todd Williamson/Getty Images.Emma Stone, 2017When you're up for the biggest award in your field — and countless photographers will be taking your picture — it's about landing on a hairstyle that looks modern, yet feels timeless. Stone's stylist Mara Rozak created a deep-cut lob that was both a nod to '30s Hollywood glamour and a style we all wanted to bookmark for later.Photo: Jeff Kravitz/WireImage.Danai Gurira, 2018Between her roles on The Walking Dead and Black Panther, fans know Danai Gurira as an on-screen badass. The star carried that symbol of strength straight to the Oscars red carpet last year when wearing a meaningful style created by Vernon Scott, who looked to traditional, ancestral tribal African designs as his inspiration.Photo: VALERIE MACON/AFP/Getty Images.Amandla Stenberg, 2019Amandla Stenberg was one of the first celebs to walk the red carpet — and for the rest of the night, we just couldn't shake just how painfully cool her hybridized hairstyle looked. "I️ told Vernon François I️ wanted fingerwaves with cornrows," she said of the style on Instagram. "He turned that out in two hours. A true artíst."For his part, François told Vogue,"We wanted to bring out the glamour and sophistication of the #1920s, but also pay homage to tradition with her texture," he said, "but when I was researching braids in that sort of [finger-waved shape], I couldn't find any. So we were on a mission to create it."Photo: Steve Granitz/WireImage.Charlize Theron, 2019Sometimes the most newsworthy look is the simplest. Charlize Theron, who's known for her bright blonde hair, made us all do a double take on the 2019 carpet thanks to a dramatic hair makeover. Paired with an equally-chic, streamlined blue Dior dress, her fresh brown bob was one of our favorite looks from the night. Photo: Steve Granitz/WireImage.Lily Aldridge, 2020The former Victoria's Secret model was the picture of glamour at last season's award show, proving that a middle part and hair tucked behind your ears is a chic styling win every time. Janelle Monáe, 2020Before the tie-dye hoodie became a WFH staple, Janelle Monáe's now-iconic Ralph Lauren sequined gown proved that the humble hood doubles as a hair accessory.Photo: Amy Sussman/Getty Images.Like what you see?
