Celine Dion at the 1999 Oscars. Not quite a dress, but not quite a look you'd want wear either.

With the Oscars just around the corner, it’s fun to make predictions as to who will win and even more fun to sit down and watch the red carpet dresses. What an actor wears the night of the Oscars is perfect fodder for the next morning as the media and celebrity magazines tear apart the outfits from the evening before. What a darling world in which live!

Since there’s no escaping the inevitable fact that there will be a bad dress (or two or three) on Sunday night, we might as well pay homage to the outfits of the past that really made us question the sanity of these actors. It’s easy to blame it on their stylists, but as some point you have to take responsibility for the fact that you have eyes and a mirror and you refused to use both of them.

Here are some of the “winning” looks from the past couple decades.
