Crews are already putting the finishing touches to the glamorous ceremony entrance which will be thronged with celebrities this Sunday night.

The carpet is lined with the traditional white and gold boards and trimmings.

A watchful eye will be kept on the carpet before Sunday’s gala following the flood at this year’s Golden Globes at the Beverly Hilton.

Part of the red carpet was drenched when a lighting rig set off a sprinkler a few hours before show time.

Crews had to use wet dry vacuums to clean it up just minutes before the kick-off time.

The 86th Academy Awards will kick off at the Hollywood & Highland Center at 8.30 pm ET. or 1.30am Monday morning in Ireland the UK.
