The years may have passed, but the talent remains for Oscar nominees who have been there, done that and continue to look good doing it.
Denzel Washington, Robert De Niro, Helen Hunt, Sally Field, Alan Arkin and Tommy Lee Jones aren't strangers to the Academy Awards – all have taken home Hollywood's ultimate prize. This year, they all took that familiar red carpet walk again – with flair, grace and style.

Shirley MacLaine came – and just as quickly went – on Downton Abbey this season, but her breezy cameo got us thinking.
Now that the Terms of Endearment Oscar winner has broken down the barrier, who among Academy Award winners and nominees should next make a guest appearance on the popular PBS series?
And just what sort of character should he or she play? Upstairs or down?
Here, then, are some recent Oscar-caliber actors who might suitably fit the bill. Please be so kind as to select your favorite. (And, in the comments section, do cast them in suitable roles.) Ta.

Hosting the Oscars, they say, is a thankless job. So, Seth MacFarlane, thanks for nothing.
This isn't to say he can be blamed for a long evening that seemed to be devoted more to singing than handing out awards.
On the other hand, he doesn't get credit for the show's best moments, either: Adele's powerful performance of "Skyfall," Daniel Day-Lewis's charmingly stiff humor in his acceptance speech for Lincoln – it was so like Abe! – or Michelle Obama's surprising and generous gesture: appearing via satellite to announce the Best Picture winner.

This year's Oscars may not take place until Feb. 24, but the ceremony's host, Seth MacFarlane, already started earning his salary Thursday morning – by joining Emma Stone to announce the nominees for the 85th annual Academy Awards from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' headquarters in Beverly Hills.
And the name that kept coming up: Lincoln, which reaped the lion's share number of nominations, 12, including those for Best Picture, Best Director Steven Spielberg, Best Actor Daniel Day-Lewis and Supporting Actress Sally Field.
Other highly recognized films were Life of Pi, with 11 nominations; Les Misérables, with nine; and Argo, with seven, though, surprisingly, not one for its director Ben Affleck.
