Traffic chaos will reign in Hollywood on Sunday so famous egomaniacs can praise each other at the 88th Academy Awards.

Saturday, all the streets circling the Hollywood and Highland mall will be slammed. Sunday, avoid Hollywood Boulevard altogether as it will be closed from Cahuenga to La Brea, and parallel streets Hawthorn and Yucca will also be closed near Hollywood and Highland. Both Highland and Wilcox will be closed from Franklin to Sunset. Expect everywhere in Hollywood to slow to a crawl. Restrictions should be lifted by Monday morning at 4 a.m.

Subways will also skip the Hollywood and Highland station until Monday morning at 6 a.m.
