But not only did the groundbreaking star win big at the ceremony, she also dazzled in a gorgeous tricolor minidress consisting of streaks of red, gold and black. The garment, which hugged her figure and showcased her incredibly toned legs, was mainly made up of the red print, with a small streak of gold running across her chest and down her body, while the black made up an underarm segment and the lining of the item.

If Jennifer does pick up the award, it will be her second Oscar, as in 2006 she picked up one for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Effie White in Dreamgirls.
