7 things that will probably make an appearance in our Oscars liveblog

Beards, frocks, Irish people and Bill Murray.

THE POPCORN IS in, multiple tellies are on standby, and we are red carpet ready…

Our Oscars liveblog will kick off at around 10.30pm, as the stars begin to arrive, and will continue right on until the last statue has been given out.

Here are seven things you are likely to see if you join us:

1. Many references to Ben Affleck’s beard

Do you think he has a beard wrangler? We do.

So. Very. Luminous.

6. Our excitement when the Irish nominees’ categories are up

Armagh cinematographer Seamus McGarvey and Kerry animator Fodhla Cronin O’Reilly are nominated for cinematography and animated short respectively.

7. Incredulousness at John Travolta’s hair

Here he is rehearsing yesterday.

You’re not fooling anyone with that hat John.
