As the stars arrived for the 89th Academy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, expectations were high that politics would feature in the night's acceptance speeches.

"I think art's inherently political," noted Barry Jenkins, shortlisted for best director and best adapted screenplay for best picture nominee "Moonlight."

His rival in all three categories, "La La Land"'s Damien Chazelle, agrees it would be "no bad thing," for politics to feature on the Oscar stage.

He supports the joint statement issued by the foreign language film nominees, condemning what they say is a climate of fascism.

"Well I just think that cinema at its ideal, art at its most ideal should be about crossing borders, should be about different parts of the world speaking to each other," said Chazelle.

"My Life as a Zucchini" producer, Maz Karli agrees it's appropriate for winners to talk politics as they accept their Oscars.

However, Justin Timberlake had been picking up on a very different vibe.

The star, who went on to open the Oscar show with his ebullient song "Can't Stop the Feeling" from the animated film "Trolls," said the artists he'd been speaking to wanted a night off from heavy politics.

"I think tonight is a night for statements unfortunately, because as long as we live in such a violent situation, political, or world violence, we always have - as soon as you have public, we have to make statements that go as far as possible, because I think for all of us, we thrive to make stories that appeal. Our story is about adoption, about love, about recreating families, so we have to speak about these themes, of course."

3. SOUNDBITE (English) Barry Jenkins, "Moonlight" director:

"I think art's inherently political and I think all these artists, once they take the stage, they have the platform, they should speak from their heart and if politics is in their heart, so be it."

4. Wide shot director Damien Chazelle

5. SOUNDBITE (English) Damien Chazelle, "La La Land" director:

"Well I just think that cinema at its ideal, art at its most ideal, should be about crossing borders, should be about different parts of the world speaking to each other. Those are the kinds of movies that have interested me are the ones that combine different cultures of are the product of different cultures coming together. I grew up half of my life in another country, so I'm just - it just feels personal to me."

6. Medium shot Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel

7. SOUNDBITE (English) Justin Timberlake, recording artist – "Trolls":

"I feel like I talk to most of the actors and musicians and directors and writers nominated and I think that's interesting that you heard that because we were talking at the luncheon and everybody was like, 'I just want to go and have fun, man.' It's a lot of politics going on right now."

Jessica Biel: "It's very true."

STARS TALK DIVERSITY ON OSCARS RED CARPET

For many stars on Sunday's (26 FEB. 2017) Oscars red carpet, a big theme of the night was about inclusivity and helping Hollywood to tell diverse stories.

Actress Laura Dern said she's encouraged by this year's foreign film nominees:

"I think it feels more connected and more unified," said Dern. "I think there's more emphasis on the global community of film this year. There's a deep respect and excitement for how many extraordinary films are here tonight being nominated from around the world. I went to the foreign film nominees event two nights ago and felt privileged to witness many of the filmmakers and have seen the films and it's really moving."

Pharrell Williams, a producer on the film "Hidden Figures," said he has faith in females.

"For me I know women have come too far to turn back now," he said. "So I'm happy. I know you're not going to let it get any worse than this. I believe in women. Women make babies, men make bombs. I love what I am, I'm grateful to be a man but I think it's just so I can appreciate everything that you guys are. When you guys get it right, you really get it right. And ya'll not going to let it get any worse than this. I ain't even worried about it. And that's a real fact. That's not an alternative fact. It's a real fact."

Taraji P. Henson said one of her goals is to help others get ahead.

"That's what I became an artist to do. To make change because the ones that came before me made change therefore allowing a path for me to come along and hopefully make some change so that's what we do."

Andre Holland of "Moonlight" said he's hopeful but believes there's work to be done.

"I think this is a big step forward and I think it will continue moving in that direction. I think there is still a lot of work that needs to be done. There are a lot of other actors and directors and people out there whose voices can be amplified so hopefully this will contain and provide opportunities for them."

Women make babies, men make bombs. I love what I am, I'm grateful to be a man but I think it's just so I can appreciate everything that you guys are.

Politics was on the minds of many of the stars walking the Oscars red carpet on Sunday (26 FEB. 2017.

Martin Butler, co-Director of "Tanna," spoke about the open letter written by the nominees for this year's foreign language Oscar, in support of Iranian director Asghar Farhadi.

"The reason why we did it is that we thought that it was important to say something in support of Asghar (Farhadi). We felt very deeply for him and it seems to me that he took a principled stand against something that was pretty outrageous and we wanted to show solidarity and support," Butler explained.

Farhadi, nominated for "The Salesman" is not attending the Oscar's ceremony as a response to Donald Trump's travel ban, which would exlude from the US people from seven Muslim-majority countries.

Ava DuVernay, whose movie "13th" is nominated for best documentary feature, gave a blunt reply when asked what advice she had for the American government.

"I have no advice for them, they're doing what they intended to do, what they promised to do and the people who voted for them seem to very happy with it," she said.

DuVernay added that it was important to fight "against this new direction we're going in," and claimed that art was central to that mission.

"Art is political. Everyone is expressing themselves and artists are citizens so artists should be able to say their minds and I hope we do have some people that get up there and give us a little something to think about."

Andrew Garfield, nominated for best actor for his role in war drama "Hacksaw Ridge," agreed with DuVernay.

"Art is political. Art, creativity is political," he said.

The actor also claimed that artists shouldn't be shy about expressing their political views.

"Actors and artists have never been shy about speaking their minds, and we just so happen to have been given a platform like this and who are we to not use it."

Los Angeles, 26 February 2017

1. SOUNDBITE (English) Martin Butler, co-Director of "Tanna" – on joint statement from Foreign Language director nominees:

"Well the reason why we did it was that we thought that it was important to say something in support of Asghar (Farhadi). We felt very deeply for him and it seems to me that he took a principled stand against something that was pretty outrageous and we wanted to show solidarity and support."

2. SOUNDBITE (English) Hannes Holm, director of "A Man Called Ove" - on whether he considered boycotting the Oscars:

"No, never. Because I think it's better to come and it's the Academy's party. So if they say me to come, I will come. And politics always becomes boring. I want to say something in a funny way. That's the way Trump does it, like showing. And this is show-people so we must beat him with a show."

3. SOUNDBITE (English) Lin-Manuel Miranda - on his American Civil Liberties Union ribbon:

"Well sure, I mean, ACLU is fighting really important fights over our American ideals right now and tonight's as good a night as any to support them in that endeavor.

4. SOUNDBITE (English) Ava DuVernay, director "13th" - on whether she has advice for the current U.S. government:

(Reporter: So what advice do you have to our current government?)

"I have no advice for them, they're doing what they intended to do, what they promised to do and the people who voted for them seem to be very happy with it. But there's a larger majority of us who feel that justice and dignity for all is much more important than lining people's pockets and so I look forward to people working and fighting against this new direction we're going in."

5. SOUNDBITE (English) Isabelle Huppert, actress - on Europe:

(Reporter: What are your thoughts on Europe?)

"I hope the worst does not happen you know, like no I wouldn't say unfortunately like everybody but like a lot of people, of course, we hope that people will go on the good side."

6. SOUNDBITE (English) Ava DuVernay, director:

"I think art is political. Art is political. Everyone is expressing themselves and artists are citizens so artists should be able to say their minds and I hope we do have some people that get up there and give us a little something to think about."

7. SOUNDBITE (English) Andrew Garfield, actor:

"I'm looking forward to people speaking from the heart, speaking their truth. I'm looking forward to people not being afraid to do that. Actors and artists have never been shy about speaking their minds, and we just so happen to have been given a platform like this and who are we to not use it. That's how I feel and art is political. Art, creativity is political and we are in a very, very urgent time where the fight for humanity, simple as that, if you're not on the side of humanity then what side are you on."

JACKIE CHAN, STING, BARRY JENKINS AND HIS 'MOONLIGHT' CAST ARRIVE AT OSCARS

Speaking on the Oscars red carpet, "Moonlight" director Barry Jenkins says "I don't think there's anything special about me."

Jenkins, whose movie is up for eight Academy Awards, could personally take home gongs for directing and best adapted screenplay.

"To say I'm the first person who was worthy of being the best this or best that is false. People have been making great work for a long time. It just happens that now we're in a moment where those things might be rewarded, said Jenkins. "I'm certainly not the first person to make a movie that merited the distinction of being nominated for best screenplay, director and picture as a person of color."

One of his "Moonlight" stars - Ashton Sanders - seemed overwhelmed by his trip to the biggest awards show of the year.

"It is so surreal. I don't think any of us can really wrap our heads around it. So I think we are all just kind of riding it out and kind of just taking it day by day. But I'm not going to lie - it is kind of cool, yeah."

Fellow nominee Sting, whose track with J. Ralph "The Empty Chair" is nominated for best original song, spoke about the movie it comes from, documentary "Jim: The James Foley Story."

"James Foley was a photojournalist ISIS prosecuted journalist in 2014 in northern Syria. He put his life on the line to tell the truth. He lost his life so we're here to make sure he gets maximum honor and respect from all Americans."

Also walking the red carpet, Australian actress Teresa Palmer- who stars in best picture nominee "Hacksaw Ridge," Sunny Pawar from "Lion" and Chinese superstar Jackie Chan who thanked his fans for his honorary Oscar, which he received in November 2016.

"I mean I'm so proud of my country so it's amazing to have everyone here and hopefully one of them comes away with the win."

5. SOUNDBITE (English) Barry Jenkins, director - "Moonlight":

"Well because I think to say I'm the first person who was worthy of being the best this or best that is false. People have been making great work for a long time.

CAST AND CREW OF 'ZOOTOPIA,' 'WATANI: MY HOMELAND' ARRIVE ON OSCARS RED CARPET

Hala Kamil, the subject of documentary short "Watani: My Homeland," which follows her as she leaves Syria seeking a better life for her children, has said the movie promotes a message of hope.

Speaking on the Oscar's red carpet in Los Angeles Sunday (26 FEB. 2017), Kamil said that we are "one family in this world" and that "we must help ourselves."

Rich Moore, co-director of "Zootopia," which is nominated for best animated feature, echoed Kamil's sentiments.

"I think the message of inclusion and diversity being more powerful than a fear of the other in light of where our world is today, I think that's a message that we can't hear enough right now."

Also on the carpet was "Hacksaw Ridge" actor Luke Bracey, who talked about the importance of the Australian film industry.

"We come from a history of storytellers; we've always kind of been in the mix there and kind of dealing with and telling great stories," he said.

"I think I'm proud to come from a small little country down the middle of nowhere that gets to have a big shot on the big stage. It's great."

There was a function on Friday night and it's just such a great community the Australian community here in film and everyone's so supportive so I think I'm proud to come from a small little country down the middle of nowhere that gets to have a big shot on the big stage.

'SON OF SAUL' TEAM AT THE OSCARS

The cast and crew of Hungarian drama "Son of Saul" - Laszlo Nemes (the film's co-writer and director), two of his producers and the movie's star, Geza Rohrig spoke on the Oscars red carpet about their experience, on their way to the ceremony.

"Well it's completely crazy," said Nemes. "I still haven't understood this whole thing. My brain is in slow-mo mode you know? So it's great to be here. It's a great honor and we're glad, you know?"

Nemes was hopeful for a win on his arrival and his dreams were answered inside the Dolby Theatre as he won the best foreign language film Academy Award.

The film tells the story of a Jewish man forced to work at a Nazi death camp who seeks a proper religious burial for a boy who he believes is his son.

Director Laszlo Nemes used long tracking shots to follow the film's protagonist as he navigates the horrors of the death camp.

It is Hungary's second Oscar win for this category.

STARS RUSH IN TO VANITY FAIR PARTY, RYLANCE TALKS SURPRISE OSCAR WIN

Lady Gaga and Elton John made a grand entrance to the Vanity Fair Oscar after-party, Sunday night (28 FEB. 2016). Gaga wore a white pants suit with a tail while Elton John wore metallic blue.

Oscar winners Brie Larson and Alicia Vikander rushed by to get in to the festivities, while fellow Oscar winner Mark Rylance to time to relish his win for best supporting actor in "Bridge of Spies".

The "Wolf Hall" star admits he was just as surprised as many others to hear his name announced.

"I knew it was kind of possible but I've won lots of different awards in my life but this was a very – I think this was one I was aware of as a child watching, you know, watching films and seeing it on the television in the '70s and maybe even late '60s so it's a very iconic award to receive. I think I was, it was a surprise for me and film is relatively new for me. I'm a theater actor primarily," he pointed out, before adding that compared to the Tonys, the Oscars had proved, "much calmer actually, funnily enough this is much calmer."

Fashionistas Charlize Theron, Taylor Swift and Margot Robbie made a splash with deep plunging sexy necklines.

"The Revenant"'s winning director Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu whisked by, telling reporters in Spanish that he needed to go to the restroom.

His famed cinematographer and fellow Oscar-winner Emmanuel "Chivo" Lubezki posed for photographs with his third Oscar statuette in as many years, before heading into celebrate their win.

He also won the prize in 2015 for "Birdman" and in 2014 for "Gravity".

DICAPRIO, ROCK, SMITH, MORE CELEBRATE AT VANITY FAIR PARTY

Chris Rock didn't stop with the jokes when the Oscars telecast ended.

At the Vanity Fair party, Sunday night (28 FEB. 2016), as the ceremony host was asked how he planned to celebrate the evening, Rock responded "Crack".

The star was among the many famous faces who made their way from Hollywood's Dolby Theatre to a specially designed venue in Beverly Hills for Vanity Fair's famed bash.

Whoopi Goldberg and Sanaa Lathan praised his approach in the ceremony, which kept the issue of diversity center stage.

"He took it where he wanted it to go and he said everything he wanted to say. That's the host of the Oscars. And he did it in five minutes. How great is that?" said Goldberg, who joined in a video skit during the ceremony.

Lathan agreed, "He was the perfect guy for the job because he knows how to do political humor so well. And you know what? It's 2016. You can't be too nice. This is a real issue that has been going on for the history of Hollywood and our country. And it's time to wake Hollywood up. So we were thrilled. And he made us laugh along the way."

Leonardo DiCaprio arrived at the party clutching his Oscar statuette.

His first ever Oscar win, after four failed nominations, was announced while Kate Bosworth and her director husband Michael Polish were making their way into the party.

"Oh, I am so happy for him. Oh. I am so happy for him. He deserves it," Bosworth said.

"He works hard. I mean, that kid works hard. You saw him in 'What's Eating Gilbert Grape?' He's never taken his foot off the pedal since then," added Polish.

Best Song winner Sam Smith arrived clutching his Oscar, as did documentary short director Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy.

Her Academy Award winning short "A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness" follows the story of a survivor of an attempted so called "honor killing" in Pakistan.

"You know Pakistan is blowing up on the social media," said the director. "It's so fantastic to do this for my country on this important issue. We are really gratified."

INARRITU, VIKANDER ON OSCAR WINS

Oscar winners and celebrities alike trickled from the awards ceremony to the various glittering after-show parties honoring this year's recipients, Sunday (28 FEB. 2016).

Two time award winner Alejandro G. Inarritu stopped to speak outside of the Governors Ball to say that he is sharing the award with "all the Mexicans around the world."

He also took a moment to share his thoughts about Leonardo DiCaprio's acceptance speech for best actor, in which he talked about climate change.

"I think Leo gave a very passionate speech about what he really believes and he has been working hard many years about it and I think he's very conscious, very knowledgeable and I think that he's sharing his knowledge with the people about something as serious as anything that we can have now on our shoulders," the director said.

Alicia Vikander hugged co-star Eddie Redmayne, after winning best supporting actress for their "The Danish Girl".

"I'm very, very happy," she smiled. "I think it's tons of emotion just running through me at the moment but this is just pretty insane and wonderful and extraordinary."

She also flipped into Swedish to tell fans at home, "There are so many people back home I would like to thank. I hope I come home soon to see you".

Winning sound editor Mark Mangini pondered why "Mad Max: Fury Road" became the night's most awarded film, picking up six technical prizes.

"You know a lot of it has to do with George Miller and I know this sounds like sort of a tired old Hollywood troupe, but it starts with a director," Mangini insisted. "He assembled an amazing collection of the best people in the world and at a time when people accuse Hollywood of being ageist, he put together a crew of experienced, for a lack of a better word, experts in their fields and good on him for that."

Priyanka Chopra - who along with "Spotlight"'s Liev Schreiber had presented the award for film editing to "Mad Max"'s Margaret Sixel - talked about getting on stage at the Oscars.

"It was great, I just didn't want to botch up any of my lines which I'm glad I didn't because I had like six but it went really well, it was amazing," she said. "It was a great view, I saw some amazing people and I'm really glad and happy about the people who won today."

The actress admitted that she wasn't in town for long however - she is jetting off to Miami to start filming the "Baywatch" reboot.

Her lips were sealed about the project:

"Yeah for that you'll have to watch and see if I do wear a bikini or not," she said with a smile.

"Spotlight" was the surprise winner of the night's top accolade.

Celebrating too at the Vanity Fair party, producer Blye Pagon Faust said that the win was not just for the cast and crew of the movie, but those who inspired them to make the movie.

"Its just so gratifying for the journalists, the reporters, the survivors, everybody involved in our story. It's remarkable," she said.

(Reporter: "Talk to us about how surprising of a moment that was for "Spotlight" to come out on top and win Best Picture, a lot of people were shocked.")

Priyanka Chopra: "I know, and we were backstage and everyone was talking about who's going to win and I really love 'Spotlight' and because I presented with Liev (Schreiber) we were having this conversation, I'm just so happy it won because as a movie it had every single thing in it that an entertaining film deserves to have so I'm really happy it won. It was, for me it wasn't a surprise."

"You know a lot of it has to do with George Miller and I know this sounds like sort of a tired old Hollywood troupe, but it starts with a director. He assembled an amazing collection of the best people in the world and at a time when people accuse Hollywood of being ageist, he put together a crew of experienced, for a lack of a better word, experts in their fields and good on him for that."

Blye Pagon Faust: "Absolutely, the same feeling. We had no idea that we had incredible, incredible films this year and this is just so gratifying for the journalists, the reporters, the survivors, everybody involved in our story. It's remarkable."

'SPOTLIGHT' AND 'THE BIG SHORT' CREW CELEBRATE AT GOVENORS BALL

Winners were celebrating their Oscar wins at the Govenors Ball, Sunday (28 FEB. 2016) with "The Spotlight"'s Liev Schreiber and producer Michael Sugar and "The Big Short" screenwriter Charles Randolph, stopping to talk about how they were feeling.

Randolph, who won the best adapted screenplay award with "The Big Short" director Tom McKay, admitted the night's results was a surprise.

"It was so great because we were all backstage and I think we all assumed that "The Revenant" would win," he said.

He shared the backstage excitement with the director of best picture winner "Spotlight," director Tom McCarthy, and his co-writer Josh Singer, who picked up best original screenplay.

"And there's Tom and Josh and everyone. And when they won Best Picture we were all, it was just -- you develop such a communal atmosphere amongst the nominees, you've heard this I'm sure before, over the course of two or three months. And so it's fantastic, it's fantastic to be part of the crowd and to know these people who you have such respect for and it's just fun to win, it's fun."

Proud cast member Liev Schreiber, who attended the ceremony with wife Naomi Watts, smiled that he was expecting success for "Spotlight".

"I have to admit that I was," he said. "It's not about the performances, it's not about the filmmaking, it's about the story and it's a remarkably important story on two levels. Both to remind us to support and remember the survivors and also to remember what an essential element of our society long lead investigative journalism is. And I'm just so thrilled to have been a part of that, so having a great night."

The movie's producer, Michael Sugar, mused on what he thinks the wins mean for the face of investigative journalism:

"I hope it reminds journalists that it's important to tell the stories that dig deep and spend the time and do the research and don't just write whatever you can write to get on the blog. Do your homework, tell the stories that hold institutions accountable."

While diversity was a hot topic at this year's show, journalist Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, who won best documentary short for her film "A Girl in the River" said her category was a celebration of talent from a range of backgrounds.

"You know, the greatest thing about my category, the short category, is that it's very diverse. It's one of the most diverse categories," she smiled. "And I think, for me to win this award -- I'm a Muslim woman, I'm brown -- it's fantastic. Really, really incredible. Definitely brings a diversity to the Academy Awards."

8. SOUNDBITE (English) Michael Sugar, Producer/Winner Best Film:

"I don't know, I'm still processing it. It's the craziest thing I could imagine, you know? We worked so hard on this film and to have it rewarded like this is really overwhelming. Truly, truly extraordinary."

(Reporter: "What do you think this means for journalism?")

Stars on the Oscars red carpet on Sunday night offered their opinions on accusations that the awards do not celebrate diversity enough.

After controversy caused by a second straight year of all-white acting nominees that prompted industry-wide scrutiny, a protest was being held near the red carpet and some viewers were planning a boycott of the broadcast.

2. SOUNDBITE (English) Olivia Wilde, actress:

"This is a nice night because it's the end of award season, everyone is in a great mood. Tonight's not too hot. I feel like everyone is really excited to see Chris Rock. I'm so excited for that myself."

(Reporter: "Why? Do you feel like he's really going to go there with the hashtag Oscars-So-White and should he?")

"Yeah. He should. He willl. I mean that's Chris' style - he's honest and he's the perfect person to make some socio-political commentary tonight. I'm so happy he's the one to be here."

3. SOUNDBITE (English) Common, actor/recording artist:

(Reporter: "Did you have conflicts about coming tonight?")

"No, not really. I feel like I want to be part of the solution. I think we all know that things need to be corrected and I think that people, the fact that people brought it up and spoke up, that we are speaking up and that people involved in the Academy want to see change too, I think we're in a great position. The only way you get change is by speaking up. So I'm here celebrating the artists that are doing well, supporting the Academy, supporting the Oscars but, you know, we know the issue is just bigger than the Oscars, or Hollywood. We're in America - there's a lot of things we've got to resolve. But I want to be part of the solution."

4. SOUNDBITE (English) Louis Gossett Jr., actor:

(Reporter: "Talk to me about the importance of being here at this year's Oscars.")

"Oh it's extremely important. Very political. Very enlightening and some people choose to protest outside. I choose to be a part of this thing which I already am for many years. If there's going to be change we have to do it from the inside."

5. Actress Priyanka Chopra posing for photographers

6. SOUNDBITE (English) Priyanka Chopra, actress:

"Well I just think art shouldn't be defined by the colour of your skin. The best person for the job should get the job and not because you look a certain way. That's just a very primitive thought for me. And I'm really happy, when I was cast in "Quantico" because I was ther best person for the job and not because of what I look like or where I come from. I think that's the way to go - story-telling should be global and that's what the world looks like now."

DICAPRIO, WINSLET, STALLONE, CRANSTON, MORE ARRIVE ON RED CARPET

For the nominees, walking the Oscars red carpet can be an emotional - and extremely nerve-wracking - experience.

However, for Hollywood veteran Sylvester Stallone, stepping onto this year's arrivals line was like being "reborn."

"I've never felt better to tell you the truth," said the 69-year-old, who is up for best supporting actor for reprising his role as Rocky Balboa in "Creed."

"All the aches and pains go away and you just feel reborn. It's a modern day miracle, because when I came here before, it was like 40 years ago, you don't appreciate it, you know what I mean? But now you understand how hard it is to stick around and how many experiences you've had and so now I'm just taking a mental movie of all this," he smiled.

Leading actor nominee - and local Los Angeles boy - Bryan Cranston, found the whole thing rather overwhelming.

"I was a poor kid from the San Fernando Valley and the idea of being on this red carpet, being nominated as best actor in a film - that's dream-worthy. In fact, if you wrote that, you'd go 'I don't know, it's a bit of a stretch.' My wife and I constantly say to each other, 'Are you kidding? Really? Is this really happening?' So, I never want to forget that feeling of surprise and that it's a gift and that we're very lucky," said Cranston, who received the nod for his role in "Trumbo."

His rival for lead actor, Michael Fassbender (nominated for "Steve Jobs"), was also delighted to be in the running for an award, but admitted he wasn't prepared for a win.

The star said he hadn't penned a speech and planned to "wing it" should his name be called out.

Just in case, Jared Leto - who won the supporting actor Oscar for "Dallas Buyers Club" in 2014 - has some advice:

"Take a deep breath and just be there. Just try to be present and enjoy it - it's very special," he said.

Other nominees to walk to red carpet included supporting actress nominees Kate Winslet and Rooney Mara, plus leading actor favorite Leonardo DiCaprio.

So the new film is actually opening on March 11th. I've got to warn you, it's a little bit outrageous - there's a scene in it that makes the scene in 'The Revenant' with the bear look like it's a Disney movie."

(Reporter: "You have 45 seconds to wing it - you're not nervous about that?")

"45 seconds - that's perfect. It's worse if I had five minutes and I had to wing it. It's not so long to sort of fill the gap, so we'll see what happens."

BRITISH STARS TAKE OVER THE RED CARPET AT THE OSCARS

Saoirse Ronan was a child when she first attended the Academy Awards.

Now, at 21 years old, the Irish actress is able to take the biggest night in the film calendar in her stride.

Ronan, who was nominated for best actress for her role as Eilis Lacey in "Brooklyn," was last nominated in 2008 for "Atonement."

"It's exciting. I was here about 10 years ago almost and it was like the first award show I'd ever been to, which was mental. Whereas now I kind of know how the whole thing goes," Ronan smiled.

Recording artist Sam Smith also kept his cool on the red carpet outside the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, as he met the press alongside his songwriting partner, Jimmy Napes.

"Everything rounded up towards the end of last year and then this happened and it's gone a bit crazy again," said Smith, who was nominated for best original song for his theme to "Spectre."

"But it's still relaxed you know? We've had a really amazing week here in L.A. with our friends and our loved ones and so I still feel like we're relaxed."

It was the first time that fellow Brit Daisy Ridley had attended an Oscars ceremony, but the actress joked that she felt "at home."

"Yes, but we did the L.A. premiere here" (for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens") "so I'm like 'yeah, it's like being at home!' No, it's nerve-wracking, but it's a very nice experience celebrating films of the year," she grinned.

Comedian Chris Rock hosted the 88th Academy Awards Sunday (28 FEB. 2016).
