Oscar Fashion
The Oscar night fashion is a big deal: the “best dressed” and “worst dressed” lists are published immediately after the event, and some historic fashion moments are created during the show! Check out this slideshow of some of the most famous fashion moments from the Academy Awards.

Acceptance Speeches
When a nominee wins an award, he or she gives a speech. Most of them are “thank yous” to everyone they work with, but some are heartfelt, emotional, or funny!
