Best Actress nominee Natalie Portman is hardly the first to dress for two on Oscar night.

But while the expectant 29-year-old has to be considered the odds-on favorite going into the event after her victory at the Golden Globes, her impending motherhood makes us wonder: Will being pregnant affect Portman's chances to win?

Let's take a look back at the movie industry's big night to see how other pregnant nominees, such as Catherine Zeta-Jones and Cate Blanchett, have fared. Along the way, we'll learn who nearly gave birth right at the ceremony (or threatened to, at least).
