We've been treated to stunning spectacles and glamorous red carpets this 2020 award season and it's unfortunately coming to an end with the original father of ceremonies. The red carpet is out, the votes are tallied and the stars are gathering in Hollywood for the 92nd annual Academy Awards.

For a second year in a row, there will be no official host. However, with a pantheon of famous faces ready to take the stage as presenters, at least one tribute expected and a Grammy-worthy batch of musicians slated to perform, a lengthy ceremony is almost guaranteed.

Among those tipped to win acting awards are Brad Pitt, Joaquin Phoenix, Laura Dern and Renee Zellweger. If they do win it will be Pitt's and Phoenix's first Oscar after an illustrious career full of previous nominations. Whereas Zellweger has returned to form nearly two decades after her last win.

As for the Best Picture award, Sam Mendes' 1917 seems to lay the biggest claim. However the South Korean drama Parasite has been lauded internationally and could cause an upset by being the first non-English speaking film to win Best Picture.

The 92nd Academy Awards takes place on Sunday in the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles at 20.00 GMT.
