As we await the exciting awards ceremony, here is what we do know about the 2018 Oscars: Jimmy Kimmel is hosting for the second time, following last year's controversial Moonlight and La La Land mix up.

Director Barry Jenkins told The Hollywood Reporter recently that he was "distraught" at the Oscars after party when he should have been on Cloud Nine.

The Academy went to great lengths this year to ensure another envelope slip-up didn't happen when the Best Picture award was announced at the Oscars.

Why the Oscars won't be announcing the wrong winners in 2018

The producers of the hit musical film were part way through their speeches when the mix-up was revealed. I'm afraid they read the wrong thing. "Moonlight has won Best Picture".

As she did with every other presenter, Bourdon turned to Beatty and asked: 'This is the best picture envelope, could you please confirm that?'

PwC aka PriceWaterhouseCoopers were the team behind the envelope fiasco and apparently accountant, Brian Cullinan was tweeting while on envelope duty and that's how the mix-up happened.

The firm is responsible for the balloting process of the Oscars prizes and is one of the largest professional services firms in the world and a leading auditor.

Another way the Academy apparently made sure celebs grabbed the correct envelope was to put the name of the category on the envelope twice: once in a small font in the center, and then again in a bigger font on the edges of the envelope.

But last night, The Shape Of Water was the big victor at this year's Academy Awards, taking home an impressive four prizes. It's very humbling to be up here and I hope it's inspiring to little black boys and brown girls who feel marginalised. Here's hoping they all have the right cards.
