12.01 - Well, that's it for the Oscars red carpet for another year. My best-dressed picks are Jennifer Hudson, Camila Alves, Gwyneth Paltrow and Helen Mirren. Best of luck to all the nominees! Kylie x
12.00 - Mark Wahlberg has arrived, very late, with his model wife. He stars in The Fighter with Christian Bale. The celebs still lingering on the red carpet are getting in trouble from the organisers for not going inside, so funny!
11.59 - The red carpet is starting to wind up now...most of the major stars and nominees have arrived and are being asked to take their seats.
11.57- Natalie Portman has arrived! She is wearing a mulbery/dark purple dress - my favourite look for her this award's season.
11.55 - Sandra Bullock has received one of the loudest welcomes from the crowd so far, like Jennifer Hudson she's wearing red today.
11.52 - Gwyneth's dress is by Calvin Klein by the way....
11.50 - I wonder if Coldplay frontman Chris Martin gives his wife Gwyneth Paltrow any performance tips when it comes to singing live?
11.46 - Many are speculating it has come down to a two-horse race today for the Best Picture gong - The Social Network up against The King's Speech. Both are incredible films and deserving winners whatever the outcome.
11.35 - Finally someone picks a metallic hue that suits her skin-tone - Gwyneth Paltrow looks AMAZING in silvery gold! Fashion-forward and absolutely stunning.
11.33 - Matthew McConaughey and his Brazilian supermodel wife Camila Alves win the award for most gorgeous couple on ground so far! Camila's plunging black dress looks amazing.
11.32 - A steady stream of mega-celebs is arriving thick and fast! Halle Berry is wearing a beautiful strapless number, she is followed by Josh Brolin and Christian Bale and his wife. Bale is up for Best Supporting Actor for his role in The Fighter.
11.28 - The queen of British acting, Dame Helen Mirren, is wearing a puffed-sleeved olived coloured dress that looks incredible on her. Annette Bening, Best Actress Nominee, has arrived with husband Warren Beatty and Javier Bardem and wife Penelope Cruz look gorgeous together. Penelope is in red and looks smoking hot considering she gave birth just weeks ago.
11.23 - The ever-gorgeous Hugh Jackman and wife Deborra-lee Furness have arrived with Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban. Maybe they shared a cab? Deb is in black and Nicole in a shiny white Opera House-meets-Dynasty inspired dress.
11.21 - Steven Spielberg has arrived at the same time as Rupert Murdoch...it is one powerful red-carpet at the moment!.
11.20 - The media is going wild trying to take shots of The King's Speech cast-members Colin Firth, Helena B.C and Geoffrey Rush. Good luck to all of them today...especially Geoffrey!
11.17 - Helena B.C. is at her eclectic best carrying a fan and wearing a medieval-inspired black dress...and sunnies.
11.14 - Andrew Garfield, who stars in The Social Network and is also currently filming the next Spiderman film, has arrived at the same time as Best Actor nominee Colin Firth and Best Supporting Actress nominee Helena Bonham Carter, both in The King's Speech.
11.10 - Justin Timberlake and Aaron Sorkin have arrived - Aaron wrote the screenplay for The Social Network and told us earlier this year he is SUPER nervous about the Oscars. He has never won a gold statue and would no doubt be thrilled to take home an award today...fingers crossed for him.
11.07 - Sharon Stone is wearing a one-shouldered black dress with feathers and a serious up-do. She actually looks like Patsy from AbFab with her hair like that.
11.02 Cate Blanchett is apparently wearing Givenchy and Jennifer Hudson is in Versace.
11.01 - Marissa Tomei has just arrived in a black prom dress.
10.59 - Jeremy Renner, nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his gritty role in the Ben Affleck-directed film The Town, has arrived with his mum. Kevin Spacey is right behind him as well as Scarlett Johansson in a burgundy red, lace dress. She is a stunner...not too sure about the dress though. Hmmm, lots of cuddles going on there between Scarlett and Jeremy.
10.55 - The ever-humble Jesse Eisenberg - star of The Social Network - has just arrived at the same time as Cate Blanchett. Cate is wearing a pale lavendar dress with an incredible yellow beaded embellishment on the back.
10.53 - WOW, a super-svelte Jennifer Hudson looks incredible in a plunging red dress, most stunning so far.
10.50 Our own Geoffrey Rush has arrived - he is of course nominated for Best Supporting Actor in The King's Speech. He is bald!
10.41 - Aron Ralston, the incredible man who cut his own arm off and inspired the film 127 Hours, has arrived with his wife.
10.37 - Amy Adams is wearing a navy sequined dress which looks great, just not sure about the weird necklace she has on over the the top of it.
10.36 - Zach Levi has walked in and looks super handsome. He is a lovely guy and was recently in Australia to promote his new animated flick Tangled.
10.33 - Michelle Williams is wearing a silvery/grey number that is extremely fitted. She looks very elegant but the colour, which is similar to Mandy Moore's dress, makes her look a little washed out.
10.30 - Russell Brand and his mum have arrived - he looks so strange without facial hair.
10.28 - Someone has arrived wearing a bike helmet! Oh no...wait, that's just a bad Beatles haircut.
10.27 - Mandy Moore is up next...um, it's hard to tell where her dress starts and her skin finishes. She is such a sweetheart but looking a little severe and pale today.
10.25 - Mila Kunis has arrived wearing a flowing lavendar frock and some seriously gorgeous diamond earrings.
10.23 - Of course Jacki is also nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Aussie flick Animal Kingdom....Go Jacki!
10.22 - Jacki Weaver has arrived! She looks STUNNING in a silvery/metallic and chiffon dress, quite possibly by Collette Dinnigan.
10.20 - Good luck Hailee for your Best Supporting Actor nomination!
10.16 - Hailee Steinfeld - the young actress from True Grit - has arrived with her parents. She looks gorgeous and is wearing a 3/4 length ballerina dress (in a nude hue).
10.13 - Lots of screams for the beautiful Virginia Madsen who is wearing a black and white dress.
10.08 - Melissa Leo, who is nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Fighter, has arrived in what looks like an Easter egg wrapper.
10.05 - Have already seen a number of dresses in the nude/soft pink hue...a safe bet but getting a little boring now.
10.02 - Imagine if Natalie Portman didn't win the Best Actress Oscar today...scandal!
10.00 - The very, very handsome Armie Hammer - who played BOTH Winklevoss twins in The Social Network - has just arrived.
09.57 - Lots of people already on the red carpet but no major stars yet...just heaps of media (approximately 500!) plus industry people and of course, security.
09.53 - James Franco and Anne Hathaway must be getting pretty nervous by now! So too Gwyneth Paltrow who is performing at the awards.
09.47 - Richard Wilkins is on the Oscars red carpet now talking to chef Wolfgang Puck about the amazing food being served today...they have smoked salmon in the shape of Oscar statues.
9.45am - Speaking of this year's co-hosts, apparently a planned singing/dancing performance by James Franco was canned at the last minute by producers because his singing was so horrible! 9.44am - Also rumoured to be presenting this year: Justin Timberlake, Mila Kunis, Russell Brand, Matthew McConaughey, Scarlett Johansson and Hilary Swank...with Steven Spielberg expected to present the Best Picture Oscar.
09.42am - The rumour mill is already in overdrive about who some of the guest presenters will be today, alongside hosts James Franco and Anne Hathaway. Expect a surprise "monologue" from last year's co-host Billy Crystal.
09:40am - Well Happy Oscars Day everyone! It's Kylie here and I hope you're as excited about the 83rd Annual Academy Awards as I am...
