Hosted by our own Big Morning Buzz Live correspondent Janell Snowden and MTV’s (and frequent Very VH1 Spreecast guest) Josh Horowitz, the show will transport you from your couch to the red carpet at the most prestigious awards show of them all!

Sure, the outfits celebs wear on the Oscars red carpet are enviable, but what we’re more into are the threads they wear onscreen. VH1 News polled some of the season’s biggest stars and asked them about the movie wardrobe they’d most like to steal. Adorably, Best Actress nominee, 9-year-old Quevenzhane Wallis, named a cartoon as her film fashion icon.
Oscar weekend is upon us, which means you’re running out of time to stock up on important trivia you can impress a room full of people with on Sunday night. Because we’re always looking out for you here at VH1, we thought we’d reacquaint you with some of the biggest overachievers in the biz: a selection of actors and actresses who have earned a coveted Oscar nomination long before they could order their first legal drink.
In honor of Beasts of the Southern Wild breakout star Quvenzhané Wallis, take a look at the accomplished collection of underage actors and actresses who’ve walked the Oscar carpet (and in some cases, took home a golden statue) long before their 21st birthday.
UPDATE (2/24/13 at 11:48 p.m.): Good news! Jennifer Lawrence did NOT lose, after all; she took home the Academy Award for Best Actress tonight for her awesome performing in Silver Linings Playbook. She did, however, trip on her way up the steps to accept the award. Yet another reason —our Sixth, in fact!— to love and root for our girl, J-LAW!
Jennifer Lawrence may be slowly slipping into second place behind Emmanuelle Riva in the Best Actress Oscar race, but she remains solidly on-top in our books for reasons that go far beyond her amazing work on-screen. Despite all the hoopla surrounding her, from the indie accolades to the blockbuster bank, she is decidedly unfazed by it all. She doesn’t pal around with other celebs in her down time and she has yet to succumb to the unrelenting and unrealistic pressure of the Hollywood Actresses Must B Skin n’ Bones machine. She likes her mom. She is…normal. And that, more than anything, is the most extraordinary thing about her.
As you get ready to sit down on your couch with a tub full of popcorn and a gallon full of wine on Sunday night to watch the Academy Awards —at least, that’s how WE roll— there’s no better way to prep for the festivities than by watching our Oscars red carpet live stream Sunday at 5:30 p.m. ET on VH1.com. Hosted by our own Big Morning Buzz Live correspondent Janell Snowden and MTV’s (and frequent Very VH1 Spreecast guest) Josh Horowitz, the show will transport you from your couch to the red carpet at the most prestigious awards show of them all!

UPDATE: The poll is closed, and our hearty congratulations go to Argo‘s Ben Affleck. Now, Argo get yourself a shave!
For months and months now, Oscar pundits have been debating the merits of various films and actors in an effort to predict who’s going to win this year’s Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Actress prizes. However, the media’s relentless interest in these so-called “real” awards has outshined the story that most actual moviegoers, like us, care about: What movie character this year sported the Best Dramatic Facial Hair?
They say money can’t buy you love, but it also can’t buy you Oscars. Despite having a film portfolios grossing in the BILLIONS of dollars, some of Hollywood’s biggest stars are still without an a little gold man!
With the Academy Awards on the horizon, we here at VH1 are picking our own film favorites from this year’s long list of beloved flicks. But we say screw the traditional nominations! (Yes, we actually said this.) What we really want to know from stars on the red carpet is this: Which 2012 movie reduced you to a weeping pile of tears, tissues and snot?
Ain’t nobody smoother than Denzel Washington! The 58-year-old actor and two-time Academy Award winner is making his umpteenth (we counted!) trip to the Oscars this weekend, where he’s nominated for Best Actor for his harrowing work in Flight. What better time, we thought, to take a look at Denzel’s dapper duds over the years?
While you’ve been saving every extra dime to see all nine of this year’s Best Picture nominees, VH1′s Big Morning Buzz Live host Carrie Keagan has been making thoughtful commentary around the latest crop of Oscar hopefuls all winter long. Yes, there’s been trivia and chatter about the stinkers (ahem, Razzie nominees), but when it comes to Sunday’s real awards, Carrie has done the nearly impossible: predicted the big winners for the 2013.
