Shortly after dusk, crews unfurled the carpet along Hollywood Boulevard, which is in the slow process of being temporarily turned into the awards arrivals area, where nominees and other celebrities will make their long trek into the Dolby Theatre, running the gauntlet of hundreds of the world's media outlets.

An army of workers have been busy on the preparations for Oscars, which began this week with the construction of tents and bleachers. Approximately 1500 man hours are required to lay the 25,000 square feet of the regal rug.

The red carpet will welcome some of Hollywood's biggest stars for the annual awards show on Sunday, March 2.
