Gearing up for Hollywood's biggest night of the year: Workers prepare red carpet for the Oscars as world's most famous actors rehearse their lines... and Halle Berry nearly falls off the stage

Los Angeles' Dolby Theatre was a buzz of activity on Saturday as Hollywood got ready for its biggest night of the year.
As workers prepared the red carpet and a giant statue in the likeness of an Oscar award was ushered into the venue, some of the big-screen's most accomplished stars rehearsed their parts ahead of the 85th Academy Awards that will take place tonight.
Some dressed down in jeans and hoodies while others looked camera-ready in suits or chic dresses and spiky stilettos.

But no matter how they looked, all of the stars who prepared seemed excited about being a part of the big show -- Halle Berry so much so that she almost fell off the stage.
An Oscar-winner herself, Berry literally stumbled during her first rehearsal, her pointy heel catching on part of the stage. But she insisted on trying again.
'Woo hoo,' she said. 'Made it.'

Berry was just one of the names on a star-studded bill of actors who paraded through the Dolby Theatre in 15-minute increments. Others included Meryl Streep, Ben Affleck, Reese Witherspoon, Richard Gere, Jennifer Aniston, John Travolta, Nicole Kidman, Jack Nicholson and dozens more.

Each practiced their lines in front of an audience of show workers and awarded prop Oscars to rehearsal actors. They also scanned the theater from the stage, searching for their show-night seats.
'Oh, wow. That's a very dramatic picture of me,' best-actress nominee Jessica Chastain said after spotting her seat-saving placard. 'I'm looking at everyone's headshots. It's kind of incredible.'
Affleck confessed his excitement from the stage as he looked out at all the famous faces expected to attend.

'This is like the most memorable aspect of the Oscars,' the 'Argo' director said. 'You see all these place cards (at rehearsal), then you come back and they're all here!'
Affleck also chatted backstage with the college film students who won a contest to serve as trophy carriers during the ceremony.
'I love that,' he said. 'It's super cool.'
Travolta spent time with the students, too.

'I was there when that idea was born and I said it was the best idea they could possibly come up with,' he told the aspiring filmmakers backstage. 'And here you are!'
Travolta plans to bring his 13-year-old daughter, Ella Bleu, to the ceremony.
Kidman made rehearsals a family affair. Husband Keith Urban and their eldest daughter, Sunday, watched from the audience as Kidman ran through her lines.
