The Oscars are THIS weekend, y'all. Are you ready? But buying cheese can wait -- we've got photos from 20 years ago you need to see.
Here are the best photos from the 1996 Oscars for your viewing pleasure — or displeasure, if you're not into satin.
Sandra BullockGetty Images
Sandra Bullock wore her hair half up and donned a choker, making this one of the most '90s red carpet looks on the books.
Alicia SilverstoneGetty Images
A tulle wrap probably didn't provide much warmth for Alicia Silverstone, but it completed the overall bridal vibe of her outfit.
Tom Cruise and Nicole KidmanGetty Images
Bets on whether or not Nicole Kidman was wearing flats?
Meryl StreepGetty Images
The only thing we can attribute Meryl's never-aging face to is sorcery, right?
Patricia Arquette and Nicolas CageGetty Images
Patricia Arquette opted for a very prom-inspired updo to support Nicolas Cage, her husband at the time. WHAT???? Who knew? Not me.
Kate WinsletGetty Images
Kate Winslet was color blocking was before it was a ~thing~. Of course. Of course!
Laura Dern and Jeff GoldblumGetty Images
Laura Dern matched her wrap and bag to her dress — she wins the award for most satin at one time. Oh, and her date was Jurassic Park costar Jeff Goldblum, so...get another award for Ms. Dern, please.
Tim Robbins and Susan SarandonGetty Images
Susan Saradon also wore a lot of satin, but she had no matching accessories.
Winona RyderGetty Images
Another wrap!!!! It's almost like all these actresses spoke to my mother before they left for the show.
Brad Pitt and Gwyneth PaltrowGetty Images
Has there ever been a blonder couple in the history of the world? Seems unlikely.
