The Academy Awards have installed some familiar faces on the red carpet along Hollywood Blvd.
Like oversized toy soldiers, the familiar, larger-than-life golden Oscar statues have been lined up along the crimson colored rug in front of the Kodak Theatre.
The statues are left on the carpet under yellow plastic, to be unwrapped on the morning of the show, where they will be buffed and shined and in some cases receive a fresh coat of paint if needed.
The red carpet will be buzzing with activity as preparations will continue right up until the kick off.
The 84th annual Academy Awards will take place Sunday, February 26.
