With the Oscars just around the corner, preparations are underway to roll out the red carpet and make room for the film industry’s biggest stars.
The ceremony, hosted by trio Regina Hall, Wanda Skyes and Amy Schumer on March 27, returns to the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. The ceremony has been held there since 2002 when the Hollywood location was still known as the Kodak Theatre.
However, last year’s Academy Awards were held for the first time at Union Station in downtown Los Angeles, using a mix of indoor and outdoor seating due to the pandemic.
This year’s ceremony is scheduled to begin at 8pm ET or 1am (on March 28) in the UK.
It is expected to last about three to four hours.
This year’s Oscars are later than usual, having been postponed to avoid conflict with the Super Bowl and Winter Olympics.
Academy Awards nominees include Will Smith, Jessica Chastain and Jane Campion, her western drama The power of the dog is currently the front-runner for best picture.

In the US, the Oscars will be streamed live on ABC on Sunday, March 27 at 8:00 p.m. ET. For UK viewers, it airs at 1am on the dedicated Sky Cinema Oscars channel.
