Terrence Howard, Oscars, 2015 Academy Awards

The 'Empire' actor chose a classic dark look for the 87th annual awards.

Terrence Howard chose a Dolce & Gabbana black peak lapel tuxedo and bowtie for his red carpet look at the 2015 Academy Awards held at the Dolby Theatre on Sunday (Feb. 22) in Hollywood. 

Nailing his role as Djay in 2005's Hustle & Flow put the Hollywood community on notice that Terrence Howard possessed an abundance of both those qualities. His role as Rhody in the Iron Man franchise gave notice that Howard was ready for prime time. And the rave notices for one of TV's hottest shows, Empire, give notice that Howard can be expected back on these red carpets for many awards seasons to come.

Unlike when he attended the Oscars as a Hustle & Flow best actor nominee, Howard is on hand as a presenter this year. He's free to enjoy the show sans anxiety, and—if the mood strikes—think ahead to next time.

Be sure to watch the 2015 Oscars, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris tonight at 5:30p.m. PT/8:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
