For Amy Adams, James Franco, Jesse Eisenberg and other Oscar nominees, it’s been a long journey from their high school hallways to the red carpet. They may be bonafide Hollywood stars now, but once upon a time they were passing notes in homeroom, skipping out on third period trigonometry and getting dressed up for their senior class portraits.

And in Jeremy Renner‘s case, they were rocking amazing flat-top-meets-mullet hairstyles.

Celebuzz has rounded up yearbook photos of some of this year’s leading Oscar contenders (and hosts). Check out these nominees before they were famous, and come back to Celebuzz for the Academy Awards on Sunday night (February 27) for every last bit of fashion and awards news!
