Hollywood celebrities and Academy Award nominees are walking the red carpet before Hollywood's biggest night.

Amy Adams, who's nominated for her role in "American Hustle", Bruce Dern (Nebraska), and Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) posed before the 86th annual Oscas ceremony.

The night's biggest question mark won't come until the very end. The historical drama "12 Years a Slave," the 3-D space spectacle "Gravity" and the con-artist caper "American Hustle" are vying for best picture in the night's closest contest.

Here are some images from the Oscars red carpet:
