Tonight, the candles will be lit and the fingers will be crossed in the hopes that our girl Saoirse Ronan will take home the trophy for Best Actress for her role in Lady Bird.

But she faces tough competition in the form of Frances McDormand who's nominated for her role in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. And this isn't McDormand's first time in the running for Best Actress at the Oscars.

This is her fifth nomination and it comes just over two decades since her first win for her role in Fargo. A lot has changed since then, especially when it comes to the red carpet.

Here are the Best Actress winners from the last 21 years winning on the red carpet too.
