We love movies. We love them for their fashion, for their stories, but also for all of the glitz and glamour that surrounds them, including, of course, the red carpets. And what's the red carpet to end all red carpets? I mean we hardly even have to answer that question, do we? The Oscars, of course! Well, the nominations were announced yesterday (MTV News has the full list), and we're already chomping at the bit to see the dresses that float down the carpet come February 24th. With a best actress category that includes both Oscar veterans and newcomers, it's going to be a good year, we think. Between Jennifer Lawrence, who was nominated in the same category in 2011 and regularly appears all over MTV Style; Quvenzhané Wallis, who is the youngest person to ever be nominated for Best Actress at just 9 years old; and Emmanuelle Riva, who will be the oldest person nominated in the category at 85 years old, there are a lot of firsts and a lot of familiar faces. Jessica Chastain, who regularly tops our top looks lists and got a Supporting Actress nom last year, will be pulling out a killer look without a doubt; and Naomi Watts, who is a two time best actress nominee, always breaks out the old hollywood glamour. Let's take a look at some of our nominees past looks!

When she was nominated for Best Actress for her role in Winter's Bone in 2011, she became, at the time, the second youngest actress to be nominated in the category. She was just 20 years old. For her first Oscars, Jenny wore a super simple but super sultry long red Calvin Klein gown and kept her hair and makeup understated and youthful. She's been on many a red carpet since then, between other major movie roles and, of course, The Hunger Games series, but we think Jennifer will go with a similar approach to this year's awards. Like her character in Silver Linings Playbook, Jennifer isn't afraid to take risks, but she also has a style all her own. We would love to see her amp up the glam factor, maybe with some old Hollywood flourishes, but we're not sure how HER that would be. Nevertheless, we're sure she'll surprise us with her look.
