When it comes to awards shindigs it doesn’t get any bigger than this, and the 86th Academy Awards welcomed Chiwetel Ejiofor to the red carpet outside Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre earlier tonight (March 2).

The “12 Years a Slave” star smiled for the shutterbugs as he navigated through the arrivals area, excited about the evening ahead.

It's been a huge year for the British Actor as he's up for a Leading Actor award along with Leonardo DiCaprio, Christian Bale, Bruce Dern, and Matthew McConaughey.

Among the outstanding hopefuls for Leading Actress are Amy Adams, Judi Dench, Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep, and Sandra Bullock.
