Here we go, y'all! It's Oscars night, which means that awards season as we know it is coming to a close. This is one of the biggest red carpets of the year, so (obviously) we are going to live blog the s--t out of it. Keep your eyes (and browsers) here for all the up-to-the-minute updates!
5:45pm EST — UMMMM, I've barely sunk my teeth into my full taco plate, and Anna Kendrick has already hit the red carpet. Looking SMOKIN', per uzhe. This is Thakoon.
5:58pm EST — Omg, I really think Gina Rodriguez is my new favorite person. Also, that blue is SO beautiful on her.
6:06pm EST — Ok, everyone. Kanye is also excited for the Oscars. If you weren't in London, you could join our viewing party, Ye!! I would've saved a taco for you! (Am I talking about the tacos too much?)
6:07pm EST — Ugh, raise your hand if you think you love Josh Hutcherson in a deep side part and tux as much as me. Oh, you do? That's cute because YOU'RE WRONG.
6:09pm EST — Jamie Chung's dress is so beautiful. PERFECT example of making sheer/nude/illusion ish work for formal situations. PROM QUEENS, TAKE NOTE.
6:19pm EST — Yoooooooo, Lady Gaga is wearing THREE Alaïas tonight!?!??!? HOW.
6:20pm EST — Ok, first of all, I was not expecting Tegan and Sara at this show. Second of all, this red carpet goth situation is really working.
6:22pm EST — ALL THE CLAPS for Ansel Elgort jumping for the satin blue suit. NO CLAPS for taking his mom instead of me. Alright, maybe one clap because that's cute as hell.
6:28pm EST — Dakota Johnson just arrived, and while red on the red carpet can be a tough move, she is NAILING it in this Saint Laurent. One strap and an angular neckline. SO. GOOD.
6:29pm EST — Yoooooo, only Margot Robbie can make long-sleeved black from head to toe plus a blunt mom bob look sexy AF. I guess I shouldn't be surprised because it's Saint Laurent, but whatever.
6:43pm EST — Another blue suit, thanks to Eddie Redmayne! V v sharp, gentlemen.
6:45pm EST — FYI, Zendaya has ditched her pixie for locs.
6:48pm EST — YES DAVID OYELOWO. THIS MAROON DOLCE & GABBANA SUITING SITUATION IS THE BEST. THEBESTTHEBESTTHEBEST.
6:50pm EST — I see you being unafraid of the space your massive Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen skirt will take up, Felicity Jones.
6:52pm EST — YOU CAN'T LOVE JOSH HUTCHERSON MORE THAN I DO. IT'S JUST NOT POSSIBLE.
6:54pm EST — I know. I'm yelling. And Emma Stone hasn't even hit the carpet yet. I'm sorry.
6:56pm EST — Wow, Behati Prinsloo + Adam Levine on this night is almost too much beauty that I need to look away.
6:57pm EST — Yea, sure.
6:58pm EST — Beacon of positivity and beauty and light Lupita Nyong'o has just arrived, and I thiiiiiink in full-body pearls????? We are not worthy.
6:59pm EST — AND AND AND, she carries her own umbrella! #everybodyaintable
7:04pm EST — TRIGGER WARNING IF YOU HAVE TRYPOPHOBIA. This appears to be a close-up of Lupita's dress. It's Calvin Klein.
7:10pm EST — Took a minute to recover from that, but Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are apparently trying to make sure I never breathe again.
7:17pm EST — Cannot stop staring at Julianne Moore's hair. I know she's in Chanel, but like..... How do you get it to lay so evenly??
7:22pm EST — Kerry Washington's hair is also mesmerizing. How much is a glam squad, again? (Answer: out of my tax bracket.)
7:27pm EST — I hear Rita Ora has arrived. Can't wait to seeeeeeee!
7:28pm EST — Naomi Watts is gunning for my favorite look of the night. Really loving this embellished crop top-looking side/back detail.
7:35pm EST — Did I just hear that Lupita's dress is covered in 6,000 pearls?? SIX THOUSAND.
7:54pm EST — Reese Witherspoon is not only looking drop-dead on the Oscars red carpet, she's being a feminist queen.
7:55pm EST — OH in the office: "J.Lo shows up to every red carpet like she's there to WIN." Agreed. Wow. My jaw. It's broken.
8:04pm EST — Ok and then Emma Stone showed up looking like an ACTUAL OSCAR. Talk about coming to win. Are you listening, Academy???
8:11pm EST — Gaga's here. Custom Azzedine Alaïa #1.
8:17pm EST — THERE'S Rita Ora!
8:19pm EST — *Oprah voice* SOOOOLAAAAAAAANGE!!!!!!! In Christian Siriano!
