When it comes to celebrations of the year it’s been in movies, there is nothing bigger than the Oscars.

All the glitz and glamour of the night when Hollywood’s finest gather is now set for its 2016 incarnation. But don’t let the big smiles and encouraging hugs fool you, it’s a battlefield, as proven by the list of this year’s nominations.

This year will mark the 88th instalment of the Academy Awards, and it all goes down on Sunday 28th February at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California.

Hidden deep in the woods, past the abandoned insane asylum and long-forgotten summer camp, off the old dirt road, across the creaky timber bridge, lies a log cabin. Under the full moon some have said they've heard blood-curdling howls from deep in the basement, though none have been brave enough to explore further... If they had, the shocking reveal would be that the screams come from old horror VHS tapes, accompanied by the maniacal laugh of Phil Robinson, brought on by comics and wrestling promos. The self-confessed "horror guy", he has also been known to talk about Spider-Man and heavy metal at great, unnecessary lengths. Yes, he knows he needs a haircut.
