Lights, camera, action: after a tumultuous year, Hollywood's biggest night is in full swing after a two-month delay.

The 93rd Academy Awards are under way at Los Angeles's Union Station, with stars aplenty gathering at the A-list but socially distanced ceremony.

While the guest list may be scaled down compared to usual years, given the Covid-19 pandemic, the glamour, however, has still been dialled up to full.

Reese Witherspoon, Carey Mulligan, Halle Berry, Laura Dern and Margot Robbie were among the famous faces to walk the red carpet at the Sunday ceremony.

With satellite hubs set up in Paris and London for nominees who could not attend the US soiree, stars including Olivia Colman also made an appearance across the pond.

Bold, block colours appear to be the order of the night, with Zendaya Coleman in sunny yellow, Amanda Seyfried in vibrant scarlet and Glenn Close in punchy amethyst.

Others had the Midas touch, with Mulligan and Robbie among the stars donning glimmering metallics.
