The years may have passed, but the talent remains for Oscar nominees who have been there, done that and continue to look good doing it.

Denzel Washington, Robert De Niro, Helen Hunt, Sally Field, Alan Arkin and Tommy Lee Jones aren’t strangers to the Academy Awards – all have taken home Hollywood’s ultimate prize. This year, they all took that familiar red carpet walk again – with flair, grace and style.

It’s an accomplishment not lost on young Hollywood. When this year’s Best Supporting Actress winner Anne Hathaway accepted her Oscar, she gave a special shout out to former winners Hunt and Field as well as fellow nominees Jacki Weaver and Amy Adams.

“I look up to you all so much and it’s just been an honor,” she said in her acceptance speech.
