The big black dress

The Little Black Dress or LBD has been cancelled at the Oscars.

If you’re ignoring the colour wheel, it’s a matter of going big or going home. Euphoria’s Maddie Ziegler got the ball rolling in a strapless Giambattista Valli gown with a fitted skirt and freefall train. Singer Sofia Carson also raided Valli’s red carpet rack with a one-shouldered tulle confection.

Orange Is The New Black’s Laverne Cox, in a fitted strapless August Getty black dress, wore a cape that looked ready to fly her as far as the Hollywood Hills.

The red carpet warms up

Sure, the awards are important but the first power play of the Oscars happens on the red carpet. The later you arrive, the more powerful you are. So let’s go straight to the bottom of the ladder with Hollywood-adjacent celebrities, socialites and television talent that you will have to search IMDb to recognise.

Welcome to the Oscars

Good morning and welcome to our live coverage of the 94th Academy Awards.

Will it be The Power of the Dog or CODA for best picture, or can the acclaimed three-hour Japanese masterpiece Drive My Car pull off a surprise victory?

Bringing you the action from the red carpet is fashion editor Damien Woolnough. Entertainment expert Karl Quinn will join our blog when the ceremony begins. Michael Idato is at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, while Garry Maddox will also share his insights as the ceremony rolls on.

There are many Australian hopes this year, including Nicole Kidman in the best actress category for Being the Ricardos and Kodi Smit-McPhee in best supporting actor for his performance in The Power of the Dog. Australian producer Emile Sherman could also walk away with the best picture award for his work on The Power of the Dog. Will it be their night?

We’ll bring you every frock, twist and turn over the next few hours. So sit back and join in the fun.
