It's that time of the year when Hollywood honours the best of the best in a glittering ceremony that the world knows as Oscars. The red carpet has been already been laid and stars have started descending for Hollywood's biggest night at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. 

Its a year of first for many. The awards this year has two debutant actresses making to the nominee list in the Best Actress. Lady Gaga for her role in 'A Star Is Born' and Yalitza Aparicio for 'Roma' have got the Academy nod for their performances. It is also a year when the Academy has truly opened its gate to diverse films as it nominated Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron's Mexican language film 'Roma' in Best Picture category. The film is the front runner in its category. 

The Best Picture nominees also include 'Black Panther'- the first superhero to be nominated in the category. The film, considered as a game changer in Hollywood, has an all-black cast. 

In the best director category, while Bradley Cooper has been royally snubbed for his work in 'A Star Is Born' - Cuaron is the clear favourite and is likely to take home the golden statue. 

So here it is. We bring you the all the live updates from the show right here! Stay tuned.
