It was at this SAG Awards that Meryl Streep famously exclaimed of her Doubt co-star, "My God, somebody give her a movie!" Now, four wins later (for The Help and How To Get Away With Murder, respectively), we can surely say Viola's as golden now as she was in this sunny one-shoulder David Meister column.

After walking away with her best supporting actress win, Spencer couldn't celebrate as much as she hoped in this figure-fitting Tadashi Shoji gown. "I could not party that night because I was being pinched in places I didn't know possible," she joked of being "triple-Spanxed" underneath her dress.

What we didn't see at the 2005 SAG Awards? Washington's near-wardrobe malfunction. "The zipper broke and I was presenting the first award of the night [with Jamie Foxx] so I ran to a seamstress and she literally sewed me into the dress!" she revealed 10 years later.

Huffman and her husband of almost 20 years, William H. Macy, made their dapper duo debut in 1997 - he in a bow-tie tuxedo and she in a simple gray sheath.
