It feels like a showbiz miracle, but not only this year’s Oscars actually got on – they actually had a red carpet.

After a certain delay due to the pandemic, the 2021 Academy Awards took place in Los Angeles on Sunday evening. They took place in their usual location at the Dolby Theater, but also branched off to the nearby Union Station (yep … the literal train station).

These overseas stars – including a number of prolific British nominees – had additional venues in Paris and London so those who couldn’t attend in person could still enjoy the Oscar.

British stars running for awards this year included Daniel Kaluuya, Riz Ahmed, Olivia Colman, Sacha Baron Cohen, Vanessa Kirby and Carey Mulligan, and Celeste and Emerald Fennell, who were nominated for Best Director.

The previous winners Viola Davis and Frances McDormand as well as first-time nominees such as Andra Day, Maria Bakalova Amanda Seyfried, Lakeith Stanfield and Leslie Odom Jr. – not to mention eight-time nominee Glenn Close – also represented the top awards of the evening.

We can look forward to more A-listers too, including actors Brad Pitt, Angela Bassett, Harrison Ford and Rita Moreno.

In short: there was a lot to consider on the red carpet.

We’re happy to say the stars have already found their way into the event, and you can take a look at all of the red carpet snaps we’ve had in the gallery below so far. And make sure you keep checking as we will update more photos as they come in …
