This Is What The Oscars Looked Like In 1987

Three words: young Tom Hanks!

The 89th annual Academy Awards are fast approaching, and as we love to do, HuffPost is taking a look back at a past Oscar ceremony.

The year was 1987. “Platoon” took home the award for Best Picture, while Paul Newman and Marlee Matlin won the night’s top acting honors for their work in the films “The Color of Money” and “Children of a Lesser God,” respectively. 

The red carpet was as star-studded as you’d imagine. Everyone from Bette Davis to Tom Hanks to then-couple Matthew Broderick and Jennifer Grey was in attendance, leaving us with some pretty great photographic memories.
