Throwback to the old-fashioned 2020 Oscars' red carpet
Are you excited for the 2021 Oscar gala? So are we! And yet, we cannot help but feel nostalgic about the 'olden days' - those the pre-pandemic times when hundreds of moviemakers gathered in a grand theatre, walking down a crowded red carpet and greeting each other with hugs and kisses. Here's a photo album of the past gala, in 2020, right before everything was shut down by coronavirus.
Absolutely one of the first we think about when remembering any red carpet: Billy Porter! On this occasion, he showed off a lovely Giles Deacon design.
The South African and American actress was nominated for her role in 'Bombshell' and wore Dior.
Two winners! Laura Dern got the award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role for 'Marriage Story' and Renee Zellweger the Best Actress statuette for her leading role in "Judy." Both actresses wore Armani - maybe the designer brings good luck?
As we could see on the first photo, Scarlett Johansson (nominated for her role in 'Marriage Story') wore a fantastic silver dress. It was a design by Oscar de la Renta.
Wearing a gown by Alberta Ferretti, the actress of 'Ugly Betty' would give birth to her daughter Lucia Marisol Williams in early May 2020.
Janelle Monáe wore this fabulous design by Ralph Lauren.
Harper's Bazaar reported that the gown — "complete with an open back, long sleeves, and a draped hood — was constructed with over 168,000 Swarovski crystals and took over 600 hours of hand-embroidere work."

Penélope Cruz wore a black Chanel for the occasion.
Her white dress was by Gucci.
