Welcome to The Independent’s Oscars 2017 live blog, bringing you all the latest from the 89th Academy Awards at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood.

Will La La Land be so honoured that it somehow also takes Best Animation? Will Trump parachute through the roof to interrupt Meryl Streep's speech? Will DiCaprio spell 'RESIST' in his vape smoke? We'll be monitoring all of this below (note: live blog might take a few seconds to load).

Talking points:

With some incredible pictures - including La La Land, Moonlight and Hidden Figures - vying for the main prize, the competition for Best Picture hasn’t been this close in years.

However, Damien Chazelle's much-lauded ode to Hollywood is widely expected to take the majority of awards, having been nominated for 14, tying with Titanic and All About Eve for a record number.

For those wanting to watch alongside in the UK, Sky Cinema is showing the awards, with Alex Zane hosting a preview show covering the red carpet arrivals starting at 11.30pm. Live coverage of the actual awards ceremony will follow from 1.30am.
