Awards season is in full bloom, and with that, we’re finally approaching the main event: the most prestigious (and most fabulous!) awards show of the year, the 87th Annual Academy Awards. The long dresses, the diamonds, the slicked-back hair and most importantly, the “who’s who” of Hollywood all gathered into one room to celebrate the year’s most extraordinary films. The red carpet will definitely see its fair share of Hollywood couple royalty, but what about the love stories and romances within the films themselves? In #FlashbackFriday fashion, let’s take a look back at some of our favorite movie couples from past decades of Oscar-winning films.
Gone with the Wind: Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler (Best Picture 1939)
Casablanca: Rick Blaine and Ilsa Lund (Best Picture 1943)
West Side Story: Tony and Maria (Best Picture 1961)
