Whew! And we’re done. Tiffany Haddish struggled a bit with some of the names, but to be honest that was a blessing: gave us some time to type. The trends here need unpicking, but some stuff we noticed: Best Director narrowly avoids the female-washout of the Golden Globes; fan favourite Get Out has done well and Tom Hanks was snubbed! Is that even allowed according to Oscar law?

And we’re off. And you’ll never guess what? It’s starting with a touching tribute to the magic of Hollywood and what movies mean to you, the little people. “90 years of once in a lifetime.” We’re pretty sure we’ve seen the same sort of spiel 90 times before.

The ceremony begins at 1.22pm GMT in the UK. Watch the announcement live here…

In the meantime, here’s everything you need to know about the frontrunners.

After last year’s spectacular Oscars envelope mix-up, six new rules have been introduced to make sure the 2018 ceremony runs as smoothy as possible. Read about the new “envelope ritual” here.

Your Oscar Nominations Hosts this year are Tiffany Haddish and Andy Serkis, who will be in a motion capture suit playing Andy Serkis in a tuxedo.

The Academy is either raring to go, or Clint Eastwood is getting a surprise nomination.

Anticipation is building…
