The 84th  Academy Awards® takes place on Sunday, 26th February at the theatre formerly known as the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles.

According to the official site red carpet live will start at midnight Irish time with the ceremony scheduled to start at 1:30am and conclude at 4:30am on Monday, 27th February.

Irish eyes will be on the the teams behind Pentecost and The Shore both nominated in the Best Short Film Live Action category, as well as Belfast-born Kenneth Branagh up for Best Supporting Actor for My Week With Marilyn and the multi-nominated Albert Nobbs, which was shot in Ireland. The film has also been nominated in the Make Up category recognizing the work of Matthew Mungle,  and Martial Corneville and our very own Lynn Johnston.
