Sally Field has given us decades worth of performances, each better than the next. From the kindhearted Sister Bertrille on "The Flying Nun" to the tough-loving mom in "Mrs. Doubtfire," there isn't a role that she can't play.
In this 1980 photograph, we see Hollywood's golden girl accepting an Academy Award for Best Actress. We love her decision to wear a simple white strapless dress (something that is still very much in fashion 30 years later). Though we might skip the Farrah Fawcett-esque hair and sheer floral bolero today, Field could easily recycle the look for this year's Oscars with a bejeweled statement necklace and delicate updo. (The 66-year-old is nominated for the Best Supporting Actress award for her role in "Lincoln" -- we hope 2013 is just as lucky for her as 1980).
