In honor of the Academy Awards this weekend here are my Friday Five all things Oscar.  Get ready to pop the champers and join Ryan & Gi on the Red Carpet!

I can't wait for one of my idols, Idina Menzel, to perform 'Let It Go' from Frozen.  She's has one of the most bad ass voices ever.

How cool is this print of all of the Best Actress Winner gowns?  There are some iconic gowns on this.  Grace Kelly in her beautiful blue gown by acclaimed costume designer Edith Head!  Cher in Bob Mackie!  Gwyneth in the bubblegum Ralph Lauren!   Hilary Swank in the backless Guy Laroche!  What was your favorite gown??

Every Best Actress Oscars dress since 1929

Who would have thunk it??
Did you know...
-Animator and producer Walt Disney has scooped the most Oscars in the 86-year-long history, winning 26 gongs and being nominated for an impressive 59 awards.  This year's Frozen – released by Walt Disney Pictures and in the running for best Animated Feature Film and best Original Song for Let It Go – could see the movie mogul's legacy once again cemented.

-Oscar winners don't really own their statues. Winners must sign an agreement stating that should they wish to sell their statuettes, they must first offer them to the Academy for $1.

-Colin Firth's historical hit The King's Speech may have led the film pack last year, with 12 Academy Award nods, but the most nominated movies of all time both garnered a whopping 
14 nominations. First up was black and white film All About Eve in 1950, matched nearly 50 years later by Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio tear-fest, Titanic. (VIA)

-Each gold-plated Oscar award costs $500 to make, and weighs around 8 and a half pounds. During World War II the glittering gold versions were shelved, and replaced with plaster replicas to mark the country's war effort. (VIA)

Last but not wishlist for the red carpet this year, straight from the runways of NYC and Paris.  Cheers!
