Early Roles of 2015 Oscar Nominees

We've been all abuzz with awards talk since the 87th Academy Awards are happening Sunday, and we'll have the winners posted as soon as they are announced during the live telecast. In the meantime, how about we take a look at the past careers of the actors and actresses who were nominated for an award for their work on the big screen. Every actor has to start somewhere, and Flavorwire has put together a little montage showing some of the earliest performances and appearances of talents like Emma Stone, Ethan Hawke, J.K. Simmons, Patricia Arquette and more. Some are well-known, others are rather surprising. Watch!

Here are some of the early performances of the 2015 Academy Awards nominees (via Flavorwire):

The 87th Academy Awards will take place on Sunday, February 22nd at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood with a live telecast airing on ABC starting at 7PM (EST) / 4PM (PST). This year's ceremony is being hosted by entertainer/actor Neil Patrick Harris. The full list of 2015 Academy Awards nominees is right here.

I'm not sure they're laughing because they think it's wrong, I think they're laughing because it's just funny that she was in it.

The way I interpreted it was they thought Natalie Portman was wrongfully identified as Knightley. Anyway, whatevs.
