Academy Awards

Academy Awards -
The Academy Awards ceremony is an award show, which is organized by the American Academy Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The Academy Awards are intended to recognize directors, actors, and writers for their excellence in professional film. During this Academy Awards ceremony, there were a number of memorable Academy Award winners, such as Meryl Streep for best actress in a leading role and Jean Dujardin for best actor in a leading role. Additionally, among the memorable moments of Academy Awards were those related to fashion, as each year the news of the Academy Awards is filled statements regarding the best and worst dressed on the red carpet of the Academy Awards.
In regards to the best-dressed category at the Academy Awards, there were number of familiar faces. For instance among those named best dressed at the Academy Awards were:
  • Angelina Jolie 
  • Brad Pitt
  • Cameron Diaz
  • Jennifer Lopez
  • George Clooney
  • Natalie Portman
  • Octavia Spencer
Each of the above artists was praised for their apparent beauty and handsomeness by a number of news sources in their discussion of the Academy Awards. Nonetheless, it should be noted a number of the women cited for their beauty have in fact undergone some form of a cosmetic procedure. This is seen in that four out of the five above listed women who attended the Academy Awards have been suspected of undergoing some type of plastic surgery. The most common suspected surgery among the four women was Rhinoplasty, or nose reshaping. Thus, it is clear in many instances the facial symmetry added to one’s five by their nose is crucial to achieving a precise symmetrical beauty. Additionally, it is apparent, from the number of best-dressed women of the Academy Awards who are suspected of plastic surgery, the commonality of plastic surgery is growing.
Ultimately, the only woman in the aforementioned list not suspected to have undergone any kind of cosmetic surgery is Octavia Spencer, who won an Academy Award for best supporting actress. However, according to a Huffington Post article, “Octavia Spencer: 'I'm Going to Get My Boobs Lifted' After The Oscars,” she will soon undergo a cosmetic surgery. Spencer stated she would undergo a breast lift surgery, regardless of if she won the Academy Award or not, sometime following the awards ceremony as a treat to herself. One aspect unveiled by the idea of Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer is undergoing a cosmetic surgery to “treat herself” is the fact cosmetic procedures are becoming common enough to be considered a treat, as opposed to luxury. In other words, plastic surgery is an affordable treat and no longer thought of as an unnecessary expense. 
Overall, it is evident many of those celebrities cited for their flawless beauty at the Academy Awards have undergone some varying kind of cosmetic surgery. This is not to ridicule any for having done so however. Instead, it is meant to show the growing commonality of plastic surgery, as can be seen in it even is a treat for some. Therefore, the once supposed stigma associated with cosmetic surgery is no longer as apparent.
