    Default Oscars 2015


    Academy Award trophy - Oscars 2015

    As the countdown to Sunday night’s 87th Academy Awards gathers pace, Hollywood’s hotels are packed with armies of stylists wielding clothes steamers, needles and thread and a well-rehearsed range of fawning compliments.

    While their celebrity clients undergo last-minute hair styling, eyebrow shaping, facial massages and manicures, carefully selected accessories are laid out in their suites alongside their chosen ensemble for the night. And that’s just for the men preparing to walk the red carpet.

    While Eddie Redmayne, 33, is the bookies’ favourite to take home the best actor Oscar (he has already bagged a Bafta, a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild gong) for his portrayal of a young Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, he is also hotly tipped to win all the style plaudits as he steps back into the sartorial spotlight.

    Labelled a “super dandy” by GQ. com, his look has been described by the American style site as “exactly what you want to see a young, up-and-coming actor to be wearing”. He even – allegedly – travels with his own grooming guru, Johnnie Sapong, who attends to that famously squiffy quiff.

    He’s up against stiff competition as Hollywood’s leading men enter into wardrobe wars. For while they undoubtedly aspire to peer recognition for their contribution to their craft, this year it is the male nominees who are receiving unprecedented attention in the runup to do battle on the world’s highest profile catwalk in front of a global TV audience of around one billion people.

    The campaigning is over. The red carpet is rolled out. And Hollywood is braced for its starriest night of the year.

    The final countdown to the Oscars is under way with Birdman and Boyhood vying to win best picture at Sunday's ceremony.

    Richard Linklater's drama Boyhood has been tipped to win for months.

    But a flock of recent awards victories for Birdman has seen Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's showbiz satire swoop in as a late contender.

    The 87th Academy Awards, this year hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, take place at Hollywood's 3,300-seat Dolby Theatre.

    Harris has promised "a hint of magic" while performers at this year's ceremony include Lady Gaga, Rita Ora, Jennifer Hudson and Anna Kendrick.

    Has to be said, it was one of the poorest years for films in recent memory.

    The ceremony itself was dray dreary too it all went downhill after the opening.
