Berry won best actress for her role in 2001’s Monster’s Ball, playing a woman whose husband is on death row. Kidman’s win came in 2002 for The Hours. Her portrayal of Virginia Woolf led her to be the first Australian to win best actress.

In 2009, Bullock took home her first Oscar for The Blind Side. She played Leigh Anne Tuohy in the semi-biographical film about the upbringing of football star Michael Oher. Witherspoon took home her Oscar in 2005 for her portrayal of June Carter Cash in Walk the Line. She did all of her own vocals in the Johnny Cash biopic, something that almost led her to forgo the role.

The 85th Annual Academy Awards, hosted by Seth MacFarlane, will air live Feb. 24 on ABC from the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood and Highland.
