If you live or travel near the Kodak Theater in Hollywood, the street is getting a little crowded with the Academy Awards set up. As of yesterday, all lanes of Hollywood Boulevard are closed from the southeast corner of Orange Drive to Highland Avenue and will be until at least a week from today at 6 a.m. There are more closures, too, as we get closer to the ceremony on Sunday.

Also, Metro Red Line subway trains will not stop at the Hollywood/Highland station all day Sunday for security purposes. If you need to get near Hollywood and Highland for some reason, you've gotta walk back from Hollywood/Vine.
