It's always one of the highlights of the Hollywood calendar - the 90th Academy Awards take place in Los Angeles tonight.

Fantasy drama The Shape of Water tops the nominations list with 13.

There's plenty of Irish interest too - Martin McDonagh is nominated for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri in the Best Motion Picture Drama.

Saoirse Ronan is up for Best Actress for her role in Ladybird.

The 23-year-old has already tasted success this year after winning that category at the Golden Globes.

She's been telling Jimmy Kimmel about the excitement of her 3rd Oscar nod:

Daniel Day-Lewis gets a nod for his role in Phantom Thread - as do Cartoon Saloon for The Breadwinner in Best Animated Feature Film.

Jimmy Kimmel will be on hosting duties for the second year running at the Dolby Theatre.

If you can't wait until tonight, the Oscars have gotten us excited with a video showing how the ceremony comes together:
