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.

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…
