Get ready to have a blast reliving the past.

Before the 2024 People's Choice Awards kick off on Feb. 18 at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, we're going back in time—20 years to be exact—and revisiting the best looks and OMG moments from the 2004 PCAs.

Take, for instance, Oprah Winfrey being a Y2K influencer, carrying her own handheld camcorder as she walked the red carpet in a skintight black dress with a matching cropped leather jacket. Later in evening, she traded her camera for a trophy after winning Favorite Talk Show Host. 

Oprah's chic black ensemble wasn't the only outfit worth noting either.

Kaley Cuoco looked pretty in pink in a blush watercolor slip dress that featured tiered ruffles and the smallest spaghetti straps. She paired her frilly frock with a spiky updo and wispy side bangs.

Mandy Moore and Amber Tamblyn rivaled the red carpet in crimson dresses, while Reba McEntire set herself apart in a dark chocolate brown gown.

Best Dressed Ever at the People's Choice Awards

Fashion aside, there were also winning moments during the show.

Friends' stars Matt LeBlanc and the late Matthew Perry opted for classic suits, as they took home the award for Favorite Television Comedy Series.

Other standout winners included Jim Carrey, Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer.

There's no denying the 2024 People's Choice Awards will bring the nostalgia with some legendary attendees.

After all, Adam Sandler will receive the People's Icon Award and Lenny Kravitz will earn the Music Icon Award. Plus, Kylie Minogue is expected to hit the stage during the star-studded ceremony.

Of course, this year's show is also celebrating Hollywood's hottest talent, as Barbie's Simu Liu has the honor of hosting.

But before the biggest and brightest stars hit the red carpet for the 2024 event, look back at the 2004 ceremony.
