[Update: If you missed the show here the COMPLETE LIST OF WINNERS]

Tonight is Hollywood’s biggest night. The 84th Academy Awards will bring the biggest stars in cinema to the Hollywood and Highland Center in California. Billy Crystal will be taking up hosting duties once again this year, as Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Glenn Close and Michelle Williams fight for Oscar glory.

The 2012 Oscars will broadcast live tonight on ABC, but there will also be plenty of online footage before, after, and during the show.

The online stream of the 2012 Oscars will start with a pre-show before the cameras hit the red carpet. The Oscars red carpet will have its fair share of beautiful people, but their could also be a few comedic surprises this year.

For one, Sacha Baron Cohen is expected to walk the red carpet dressed as his character from “The Dictator.” The academy initially banned Cohen, but a heart felt (and threatening) plea from “The Dictator” convinced them to let Admiral General Aladeen attend the ceremonies.
