Hollywood ready for Oscar night

Oscars preparation in Los Angeles
The world's biggest movie stars are just hours from finding out if they'll be celebrating or not at the Oscars.

The most glamourous night in Hollywood takes place in Los Angeles on Sunday, and even superstars can be forgiven for feeling a little nervous.

British interest is on the actress awards, with Keira Knightley, Dame Judi Dench and Rachel Weisz all nominated.

There are also hopes Wallace and Gromit will be celebrating for a third time, in the best animated film category.

Two of the pals previous outings have won Oscars, and creator Nick Park has also won for his Creature Comfort adverts.

Wallace and Gromit are up against another stop-motion style film, Corpse Bride, and Japanese cartoon Howl's Moving Castle.

The ceremony starts at 5pm in LA, which is 1am on Monday in the UK.
