As an experienced and skilled consumer of the Internet and all things pop culture, you already know that the nominations for the 87th Annual Academy Awards were announced this morning. But instead of giving you yet another recap of the nominees (Birdman and Grand Budapest Hotel, basically), we decided to dive deep into the Oscar photo archives to dig up some real gems.
From an impossibly graceful Audrey Hepburn in 1954, to an always over-the-top Cher in 1974, we've got 11 of the most iconic pics from Oscars' past. We hope you enjoy them while pondering who will take home the gold statues this year.
