The stars of the red carpet have been making the most of their arrival at this year’s Academy Awards, posting excited pictures to social media.

Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator of hit musical Hamilton and a presenter for this year’s Oscars, has been active on Twitter in posting pictures with some of his favourite celebrities.

“Timotheeeeeeeee,” he exclaimed in one tweet alongside Timothe Chalamet, nominated in the Lead Actor category for his role in Call Me By Your Name.

Manuel also snapped himself alongside The Handmaid’s Tale star Elisabeth Moss and Bradley Whitford, famous for his role in The West Wing television series.

Songwriter Diane Warren has also been posting pictures with the stars.

In her most raucous moment so far, Warren posed with Helen Mirren as both women gave a rude gesture to the camera.

“I love her!” Warren wrote in the caption accompanying the picture. “Helen Mirren is the BEST!!!”
