20 Years Ago on Jan. 24, 1999 -- Cameron Diaz and the Golden Globes

January 24, 1999: We had an all-day promo for the 56th Golden Globes Awards featuring Cameron Diaz, who was up for Best Supporting Actress for There's Something About Mary. (She didn't win, losing to Gwyneth Paltrow for the overachieving Shakespeare in Love).

In the other text spots, we had Super Bowl party planning and online children's clothes shopping featuring the headline, "Kids Grow Like Weeds."

[Series note: In the late 1990s, I programmed the content for the home page, which relaunched with a new design on July 14, 1998. I printed screencaps and saved them. 20 years later, I'm scanning them in and posting them with a little commentary under the tag #20YearsAgoOnAOLcom.]
