Every Oscar night, the past comes alive through lifetime achievement awards, "in memoriam" segments and other Hollywood retrospectives
But what if the past came alive, literally?
Through the magic of Photoshop, we've sent 10 of 2014's Oscar nominees back in time to chill with their younger selves. Just imagine being a fly on the wall for these meetings! Would the elders impart crucial career advice? Would the youngsters be shocked at the crags and wrinkles they acquired? Or would they all, as actors, see the experience as crucial research for their next role?
See 10 of these pairings below, complete with the conversations we can't help but imagine they're having.

Just as horse racing has its Triple Crown, red-carpet season has its own impressive awards haul that only the boldest of films aspire to win: the "Big Five" at the Oscars.
Taking home a trophy in the Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Picture, Best Director and Best Screenplay categories is considered a "sweep" at the Academy Awards, and this year's contest has American Hustle vying for the honor.
In the 86-year history of the awards, 42 films have been nominated across the big five categories, with only three ever pulling off the sweep: 1934's It Happened One Night, 1975's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and 1991's The Silence of the Lambs.
Up until this point, American Hustle has been nearly universally acclaimed, but its chances of leaving Hollywood's Dolby Theater as the winningest film of the night are still up for debate. Below, we break down the odds by category.

Amy Adams tearfully paid tribute to Philip Seymour Hoffman during a taping of Inside the Actors Studio earlier this month, honoring her frequent costar as "a beautiful spirit" both on- and offscreen.
"I just really loved him, and I know so many people did," the Oscar-nominated actress declared through broken sobs. "I just don't know how much more I can talk about it right now, sorry."
Adams, 39, spoke to host James Lipton about Hoffman in front of a live audience on Feb. 5, just three days after Hoffman's shocking death from an apparent overdose, and two days before she attended his private funeral in New York City. The episode aired Wednesday on Bravo.
