Awards season is in full swing and the hotly anticipated Oscars are here.

The Oscars are one of the biggest events in Hollywood.

Today the biggest names in the industry have hit the red carpet to see who will be honored with an award this year.

For the second year in a row, the annual event went hostless.

Last year, people were pretty uncertain about how the evening would pan out but it seems it's a tradition the Academy is set to continue. ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke made the announcement last week while speaking at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour in Pasadena: "Let me confirm it now, together with the Academy, that there will be no traditional host this year."

Across all the major categories, there's some tough competition.

Especially when it comes to the 9 flicks that went head to head in the "Best Picture" category.

There were some strong reactions to the nominations.

Twitter has been full to bursting with all things Oscar-related.

And this year seemed particularly strong.

An absolutely huge amount of critically-acclaimed movies have hit screens recently. The nominees certainly caused a stir!
