The film also garnered its now two-time Oscar-nominated leading actress Jennifer Lawrence a win for Favorite Movie Actress and Favorite Face of Heroism, which was great because her speech was - per usual - completely adorable.

Before They Were Famous: Zac Efron in 'Firefly'

Zac Efron in Firefly

A lot can happen in a decade, especially for an actor. Harrison Ford appeared in "A Time for Killing," his first credited screen role, in 1967 and became Han Solo in 1977. Halle Berry made her film debut in "Jungle Fever" in 1991 and by 2001 was starring in "Monster's Ball," for which she earned an Academy Award.
