With the 84th annual Academy Awards just hours away, crews are working on final touchups, the press are marking their positions and tourists get a chance to walk the carpet before the stars arrive.
Highland Avenue is expected to be closed starting midnight so the red carpet can be extended a little further for the stars' arrival.
Television crews have been rehearsing nonstop with stand-ins assisting by doing interviews and walking the red carpet, just as the stars will when they arrive Sunday at around 2 p.m.
The 84th Annual Academy Awards will be presented Sunday night in 24 categories at the Hollywood & Highland Center in Los Angeles from 830p to about midnight EST, hosted by Oscar veteran Billy Crystal and televised live on ABC.
"The Artist" remains the best picture, director and actor favorite, followed by "The Descendants." But "Hugo" may actually win the most Oscars because of its strength in craft categories.
