Oscars 2017 live: Hollywood braces itself for night of politics and La La Land

Welcome to The Independent’s Oscars 2017 live blog, bringing you the latest action from the 89th Academy Awards. 

Talking points:

With some incredible pictures – including La La LandMoonlight and Hidden Figures – vying for the main prize, the competition for Best Picture hasn’t felt 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.
