Many of this year's Oscar nominees have been in the business for a very, very, very long time.

Just look at Lincoln star Sally Field, who had to fight her way through the studio systems in the '60s before she could ever hope of winning two Oscars and an additional third nomination.

Then there's Denzel Washington, who spent much of the '80s on the small screen, and Jacki Weaver, who sang (quite beautifully, we might add) on Australian television the '60s.

But what did they actually look like when they were just starting out?
