Who Are You Excited To See At the Oscars?

02/23/2007 at 06:30 PM ET

We’ve been excited about the Oscars red carpet since the nominations were announced last month, and the show is finally happening on Sunday night! Sure, we’re curious to see who the winners are but we’re even more interested in who wears the best dresses. A perennial risk-taker, Cate Blanchett is always unexpected and glamourous — we’re dying to see what she wears, along with fellow nominees Kate Winslet and Penelope Cruz and presenters Gwyneth Paltrow and Reese Witherspoon. But we want to know who you are looking forward to. Tell us: Who are you excited to see on the red carpet at the Oscars?

I look forward to seeing Kirsten Dunst, who’s always elegant while keeping it young; Cate Blanchett for her boldness,and Charlize Theron for the risque Galliano/Dior numbers she usually pulls off. Also, will Meryl Streep wear Prada? ;)

no one else but Angelina Jolie together with her partner Brad Pitt. The’d definitely outshine the rest.

I’m looking forward to seeing Ellen. She usually wears pants on her show. She says she is going to get dressed up. So, I’m wondering if she will be wearing a dress??? I’m sure she will be an excellent MC Sunday night.

Lisa on

I am hoping Julia Roberts makes a surprise appearance, but I also love Kate Winslet.

emma on

I can’t wait to see Nicole Kidman (she will be gorgeous as allways, I’m sure), Gwyneth Paltrow and Salma Hayek. These ladies look always great and I want to see how they will look this year :)

I’m excited to see almost everyone. Angelina was one of them but I’m not sure if she’ll show up. I’m a big on fashion so I’m am literally prepared for anything.

aside from the Beautiful Pair of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, ironic as it may seem, I’m excited to see Jennifer Aniston too!

Courtney77 on

I hope Brad & Ang attend, but I think it would be too good to be true. Plus I think hes busy filming in New Orleans.

But Otherwise, Im looking forward to seeing Penelope Cruz, all the actors from The Departed, Blood Diamond, and Babel.
If Jen Lopez goes, Im excited to see her too.

Anon on

Brad and Angie are so big in blogs around the internet you would think their moovies would have in the hundred of millions by now.

Our ET fashion stylist, Anya Sarre, shows you what Angelina Jolie and more stars will be wearing Oscar night!

ANYA SARRE is ET’s fashion stylist, and is responsible for the fab fashions worn by ET’s MARY HART, JANN CARL, VANESSA MINNILLO, THEA ANDREWS and “The Insider”‘s LARA SPENCER. She’s been shopping all month for the Oscars and has the scoop on the latest red-carpet trends! Check out her blog below:

This whole week, known as “Oscar preps,” is a combination of excitement and pure craziness. You can feel the energy across Hollywood, as if everyone has had an extra shot of espresso in their lattes that they didn’t really need!

Stylists are scurrying around town, gathering up the components of the perfect “Oscar look.” Designers fly into town and debut their amazing gowns that they have been saving for the big night. Jewelers bring out the biggest and best bling, and everyone is trying to schedule their spray tans, body wraps, pedicures, glycolic peels, cardio yoga classes, B-12 shots, highlights, de-tox massages and eyelash extensions … all before Sunday night!

Now that you know everyone’s beauty secrets, you have to know all the pre-Oscar fashion buzz and what is hot on the red carpet before anyone else. We are going to see lots of gowns in white with beading and metallic shades of gold, silver and pewter. Rosettes and flowers will be all over, and so will one-shouldered gowns with thin tulle. Also be on the look-out for purple, lilac and navy everywhere!

All of Tinseltown is abuzz about the must-have diamonds this season. It is rumored that Dame ELIZABETH TAYLOR has opened up her private collection of couture diamonds for certain A-list celebs to borrow. She is only letting a few chosen celebs look at her treasured collection — including ANGELINA JOLIE, ELLEN DeGENERES (the Oscar host), JENNIFER HUDSON and our own Mary Hart.

I can’t wait to see what Dame Elizabeth has in her jewelry box!

Wish me luck as I plunge into the final search for the perfect “wow” gowns, embellished clutches, sexy (yet comfortable) stilettos and jewels to tie it all together. Be sure to check back to find out what fabulous designers our ET talent is wearing before they even set foot on the red carpet.

I only have to go to one store to shop for last-minute Oscar outfits and up-to-date trends. The shopET store has everything you need for your personal red-carpet look, and everything I need for my last-minute fashion emergencies!

See you on the carpet!

Raquel Fernandes on

I´m really curious about the clothes Ellen Degeneres will wear tonight. I also want to see Penelope Cruz and Angelina Jolie.

julfromfrance on

BRAD AND ANGIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Noelle on

Obviously Brad & Angelina will show up, his movie is nominated for Best Picture!! They were at the Golden Globes, which is like a C version of the Oscars, so they’ll definitely be there. No question.

And here’s a bit of information I’m sure some of you will like to hear: I can tell you that David and Victoria Beckham will very likely be attending the Oscars this year. My sister-in-law is one of the Beckham family nannies for their 3 kids, and she always tells me information about them before it hits the press. They were invited to attend the awards show since they are moving to L.A., and also have become very well known stars recently. I’m looking forward to seeing what Victoria wears! She’s so stylish.

Alexa on

I am excited to see LEONARDO DICAPRIO, I love him, he is so cute and he better win this time! I also hope Kate Winslet finally takes home a statue!

Andi on

Nicole Kidman of course. The woman always knows how to dress. I loved her look last year. So I’m excited to see what she wears this year.

I also really want to see Kirsten Dunst, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Penelope Cruz.

scarlett on

The one and only NICOLE KIDMAN.

And Kate Winslet. For the man candy I want to see Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman.

Bruna on

I love,love,love,love HILARY DUFF.OR Zac Efron and Ashley Tisdale.

Briar on

I really hope Nicole Kidman, Keira Knightley, Jennifer Garner and Rachel Weisz are there! They have such a good sense of style.

Anne on

Penélope and Gwyneth

Rose Ann on

I am looking forward to seeing the beautiful Nicole, and hopefully her most handsome husband. What a couple!!

Rose on

Of course, PENELOPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nura on

I can’t wait to see Nicole Kidman. Whatever she wears she’s just perfect in it. I think she’s the most talented among her age category actresses. Also would be nice to know who will be accompanying Leonardo Di Caprio tonight :-))

Coco on


Nicole Kidman
Penélope Cruz
Reese Witherspoon
Gwyneth Paltrow
Jennifer Hudson
Kate Winslet
Helen Mirren

That’s all I can think off right now.

Jan on

Angelina is in Africa, according to this website, so I would suspect Brad would be going alone.

enigma on

Not wanting to be rude or disrespectful towards Ms. Cate Blanchett, but, this get-up she’s wearing in this photo (dress, hair, make-up, and everything), looks like she stole a costume from one of those late 50’s early 60’s cheezy western film sets, which are so bad…..Hollywood’s western sets turned into ghost towns like the real thing!
This particular look on Blanchett is a big NO!

Mia on

CAN’T WAIT!!! I SWITCHED AROUND WORK SHIFTS SO I COULD WATCH THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!now i’m wondering if i can do that every wedansdey!GOOD LUCK!!!!! 0 likes
