Right! It’s another caffeine fuelled night ahead of us as we prepare to liveblog the 84th Academy Awards.

The Artist is the favourite to scoop up the awards tonight, which would round off a grand few days for Michel Hazanavicius and his silent film which run rampant through the Cesars and Independent Spirit awards but we may see Martin Scorsese’s Hugo do well with Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Meryl Streep and Viola Davis front runners for the acting awards.

Whether you agree with the relevance and importance of the Oscars it is the one night of the year when a huge amount of people are talking and celebrating movies, and that can only be a good thing. Debate will begin with the first award and continue with every golden envelope opened.

So, join us below, or on Twitter at @HeyUGuys for our take on film’s biggest night.

Every iota of our coverage is available here so feel free to browse through while the red carpet arrivals are dodging inane questions. We’ll start as soon as something interesting happens…

Yeah I hate that. Nowhere near an Oscar worthy perforamance. Especially in comparison to Kramer vs. Kramer.

04:31
HeyUGuys: 

She’s pretending to be surprised. And is this really, REALLY, her best performance, worthy to win an Oscar?

Viola Davis Vs Meryl Streep certainly but I assumed Streep would win it easily but there’s a big push for Davis tonight…

Monday February 27, 2012 04:27 HeyUGuys

It was inevitable really. And so will the final award be…

Jean Dujardin wins it…

Monday February 27, 2012 04:18 HeyUGuys
04:18
HeyUGuys: 

My finger’s are crossed for Gary Oldman, but I think he’s in the wrong town at the wrong time for an easy win this year.

Monday February 27, 2012 04:18 HeyUGuys
04:17

Gary Oldman Time!

Monday February 27, 2012 04:17 mydlac212

HeyUGuys: 

Having Natalie Portman talking about the people who are sitting there in such glowing terms is very, very odd.

Monday February 27, 2012 04:15 HeyUGuys
04:14
HeyUGuys: 

Hmmm. not sure I like these eulogies of the contenders for the main acting prizes. I’d rather they showed more clips.

I’m glad it’s gon back to the Golden Age of the Oscars. Great, funny Host, Shocking wins and losses. And decent segues. An Academy Awards worth remembering for next year!

Monday February 27, 2012 04:14 mydlac212
04:11
HeyUGuys: 

So, we’re nearly at the end of tonight’s show – and we’ve seen a pretty smooth show – seems far less concerned with being ‘cutting edge’ and all that nonsense. They taken it back to the way it was, or at least as what they want it to be remembered as.

Pretty great I have to say.

Monday February 27, 2012 04:11 HeyUGuys

Too many legends lost this year. This montage has got to me.

Monday February 27, 2012 04:07 mydlac212
04:04
HeyUGuys: 

The In Memoriam montage is coming up now – Billy Crystal is introducing nicely – that’s the difference- he can control the tone of the show so easily.

Monday February 27, 2012 04:04 HeyUGuys
04:01
HeyUGuys: 

This is the final break I think before the final few awards. At the very least it’s not an obvious winner – whoever it is.

James Earl Jones has one of the coolest voices ever.

Monday February 27, 2012 03:58 Kenji

Hearing James Earl Jones saying Gobsmacked is a highlight

Monday February 27, 2012 03:57 HeyUGuys
03:56
HeyUGuys: 

And now Meryl Streep takes the stage to present – she may as well stay up there.

Monday February 27, 2012 03:56 HeyUGuys
03:55
HeyUGuys: 

I liked the film, but it didn’t really get under my skin. But it’s obvious to see why the Academy liked it.

Monday February 27, 2012 03:55 HeyUGuys
03:54
HeyUGuys: 

Not a huge surprise there at all. With the load of awards it’s won in recent years (and recent days especially) this is getting rather dull

Monday February 27, 2012 03:54 HeyUGuys
03:53
HeyUGuys: 

There’s a big win for The Artist.

Monday February 27, 2012 03:53 HeyUGuys

HeyUGuys: 

Michel Hazanavicius

Monday February 27, 2012 03:53 HeyUGuys

and the winner is….

Monday February 27, 2012 03:53 HeyUGuys

Definitely with you on that, I’d love to see Malick go against the odds.

Martin Scorsese – Hugo. No Joke

Monday February 27, 2012 03:53 mydlac212
03:52
HeyUGuys: 

Has to be Michel Hazanavicius right? Would love to see Malick take it – just to prove the pre-show hype can be very, very wrong….

Monday February 27, 2012 03:52 HeyUGuys
03:51
HeyUGuys: 

It’s a big one…

Angelina Jolie’s right leg.

Monday February 27, 2012 03:38 HeyUGuys

Christopher Plummer’s speech was a highlight certainly. The almost complete lack of dodgy presenting.

Monday February 27, 2012 03:38 HeyUGuys

It’s been a nice mix tonight, usually it’s very dull when everything goes to plan.

Kinda wanting Max von Sydow to win supporting actor just cause he’s Max von Sydow.

HeyUGuys: 

Good call from Kenji there – The Tree of Life was a problematic film for me – cut out Sean Penn’s moments and stick to the Brad Pitt/Jessica Chastain duo and you’ve got me. Mesmerising film if you’ve not seen it…

I could see Malick taking Best Director for The Tree of Life.

While we’re on the subject – where is Drive? Shame? We Need to Talk about Kevin? Any fans of those in here?

HeyUGuys: 

While I’m pretty sure The Artist will take Best Film I’m not sure if it will take Best Director – Scorsese won’t take it but there’s bound to be one huge surprise so perhaps this is the category…

Ok – we’re still a long way away from the awards it seems – and twitter is abuzz with preshow predictions and premature outrage – give us your picks – any category.

Gary Oldman looking awesome as he walks the carpet

If anyone was thinking of a job as a freelance photographer should listen to the screams of desperation on the carpet tonight.

The Descendants team is ‘carpeting’ now.

Grant Heslov is looking happy and bemused.

Any sign of the Dean?

I, however, am far more cynical about The Dictator’s banning. It surely must have been a publicity stunt, right?

I really like Sacha Baron Cohen! I thought his video responses to being banned were excellent.

The chatroom gave us a stony silence when I asked earlier if there were an fans of Sacha Baron Cohen’s in here tonight.

Well, the time Paramount have waited for is here. The Dictator has arrived.

By the way – if you’re not watching the Red carpet (and why not? – we’ve got a stream here – ) check out the mighty Cassam Looch’s tumblr – cassamlooch.tumblr.com for all the best pics from the paps.
