Reese Witherspoon has played several iconic roles in her time. From Elle Woods in “Legally Blonde” to her role as Melanie Carmichael– er, I mean Smooter— in “Sweet Home Alabama,” she’s proven herself to be a versatile actress. One of her best roles, though, won her an Oscar for Best Actress.

Before the 90th annual Oscars this year, Reese took to Instagram to share a throwback picture of herself accepting her award for her role in “Walk The Line” back in 2006, as well as a message to this year’s nominees. “This moment was so special in my life. I worked really hard on #WalkTheLine, taking singing lessons for 6 months, learning to play the auto-harp (which was REALLY Fun!) and watching endless tapes of June Carter. So, when I won the on Oscar on March 5, 2006, it meant the world to me to be recognized by my peers,” she said in her post.

“Overwhelmed, excited and truly humbled, I will never forget that moment. I am thinking about every nominee today and congratulating them on the incredible hard work that got them to this place. Have a great night! You are all winners,” she said.

If you haven’t seen “Walk The Line,” you’re seriously missing out. Here’s a snippet of one of her performances.
