THE biggest night in Hollywood is here and stars are taking to the red carpet now to show off their glamorous looks.
The 94th Academy Awards have kicked off with stars like Vanessa Hudgens and Lily James walking the red carpet as anticipation builds for the ceremony.
Kourtney Kardashian shared a behind-the-scenes look at her preparation for the Oscars, where her fiance Travis Barker will be performing.
The couple showed major PDA on the red carpet while Kourtney, 42, wore a tight black dress and the Blink-182 drummer kept it cool in an all-black suit.
Sources say that bosses were keen to have Duchess Meghan present the award for Best Actress.
But the idea had to be scrapped when Kristen Stewart was nominated for her role as Harry’s mother Princess Diana in Spencer.
It’s now thought that the couple could be in line to present the Best Picture award.
The ceremony will air at 8pm ET on ABC.
The show will also be available to stream online at ABC.com.
The 2022 Oscars are set to be hosted by Regina Hall, Amy Schumer and Wanda Sykes.
A full list of the nominations was revealed earlier this year.
