The little bald gold men are currently being buffed up ahead of the Academy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night. But you can get in on the action with these events around town this week:
Soundtrack specials: Islington’s Club De Fromage will be holding its annual Oscar Night bash on 27 February. Tuxes and frocks are encouraged, but don’t expect them to be pristine by the end of the night. Hosted by the glamour-pusses Slow Alfie & Fat Tony, £7.55.
A night at the Roxy: There are screenings, entertainment and a live show on 28 February, plus prizes galore for the best dressed (we plan to go as the bear from The Revenant so no-one messes). The £12 ticket includes bubbly and canapes.
The big nosh up: The Boisdale restaurant in Canary Wharf is holding a red carpet dinner on 24 February with food, champagne and a Tinseltown trivia quiz included in the Oscar-sized price tag of £89.50.
See all the films: Oscar Season at the BFI means you can watch every nominated film in preparation, so you know what you’re talking about when upsets on Sunday mean big names are left weeping into their goody bags.
Short and sweet: On 10 March you can head to Barbican to catch a screening of the Oscar nominated shorts, which are a lesser-known but no less high quality cinematic treat.
Stay home: If you just want to watch the slebs arriving then see the winners break down as they thank everyone in the world, you can always stay on the sofa and catch the ceremony on TV. It will be broadcast via Sky Movies Oscars, a special channel which will go live from 22 February-6 March (or just watch the highlights on normal telly on Monday morning).
