IT’S THE MOST wonderful time of the yeaaarrrrrr!

Finally, it’s Oscars night 2015.

While we’re all gnashing our teeth and wringing our hands wondering “will it be Cumberbatch or Redmayne?”, “will JK Simmonds pelt the audience with cymbals?”, “WHY is Rita Ora on stage”, we all know that the real best bit of the night is the red carpet.

Will Cumberbatch help his pregnant wife over a lump in the carpet and make uteruses across the globe sing? How will we cope without manicam? Will Fassbender show up with an even more celebratory beard than last time? Will Fassbender even be there for the love of God?

We rounded it all up in our now legendary Red Carpet liveblog. Enjoy!

ARGH! It’s live. There’s Ryan Seacrest!

If you’re watching along at home, get in touch. Send us pics to @DailyEdge or tips@dailyedge.ie. We’re most interested in pics of your snack selections.

Chris Evans, Chris Pine, Chris Pratt. You MUST choose one.

(We’re Pratt fans, naturally)

First big celeb and nominee on the Red Carpet is Patricia Arquette.

We’re imagining Ryan Seacrest in the mirror earlier today, repeating the mantra:

DON’T CALL HER ROSANNA. DON’T CALL HER ROSANNA.

Stephen Fry called her Rosanna at the Baftas. We still haven’t recovered.

We’ve just realised it’s the first anniversary of Liza trying to get into the Oscars selfie.

Irish interest tonight lies with the Cartoon Saloon gang, nominated for Song of the Sea, and the Northern Irish short film Bugaloo and Graham.

We caught up with Tomm Moore, director of Song of the Sea yesterday. He was talking to us, on the phone from HOLLYWOOD! THE GLAMOUR!

The Cartoon Saloon gang was 20 strong, but only had ten tickets as of yesterday.

It looks like they managed to track down a ticket for David Rawle (Moone Boy and Song of the Sea actor)

Wondering where the manicam is?

THERE ISN’T ONE!

E! have confirmed that the tiny camera, designed for (mainly) actresses to show off their manicures, rings etc, is no more.

Here’s more.

The Boogaloo & Graham lads have arrived!

Ross Matthews and Kelly Osbourne are reporting from the Red Carpet “obsessed” with people’s looks and saying things like “that colour is divine with her skin”.

Kelly Osbourne just threw some serious shade on redheads there.

Not many redheads can pull off the look with such grace and style as Jessica Chastain.

Kelly, love, your hair is purple.

No sign of Belfast swoonmerchant Jamie Phwoarnan… sorry.. Dornan.

Here’s Rita Ora and Dakota Johnson backstage at the Oscars in rehearsals though.

Nice hat Reets.

Some serious pass ag carry-on between Ryan and Guiliana.

Is Ethan Hawke there yet Ryan?

He’s on his way Guiliana (gritted teeth)

Take a shot every time Guiliana Rancic says “that’s so interesting”.

There’s Ethan Hawke, saying something about the minutiae of life.

Forget about that though, does this woman know she’s on telly?

Dakota Johnson and Ethan Hawke having the chats.

Celebs hanging around together is one of our favourite things.

Dakota Johnson just told Ryan Seacrest that she took a flogger from the set of Fifty Shades.

He’s pretending he doesn’t know what a flogger is.

Sure pal, sure.

The wonderful Laura Dern has once again brought her dad Bruce Dern as her date. Between Laura, Bruce and her mother Diane Ladd have seven nominations between them.

Also, Laura will always be Dr Ellie Satler to us.

This is going to be one of those dresses where you look back next year and everyone’s wearing it.

Kelly Osbourne doing her best not to call Marion Cotillard’s dress manky there.

Eddie Redmayne has arrived. He has SO MANY TEETH.

It’s pissing rain at the Oscars. End of days. What if Meryl goes on her ear or something?

Dakota Johnson has already been berated for ‘just wearing a ponytail’. Now, her ma Melanie Griffith looks the business.

Lupita’s dress looks a little bit like something you’d make something out of shells for your mam.

We’re starting to accept that Jamie Dornan probably isn’t going to be at the Oscars.

Here’s a compensatory GIF.

Ok, this looks like the time where E! loses it’s red carpet licence and talks shite in the studio. TO SKY WITH US!

There’s Rita Ora. At the Oscars. Baffling us.

Neil Patrick Harris’ fella just tweeted this, which means it’s nearly time for the big show!
