An Oscars unlike any before is finally taking place on Sunday night, after Covid-delays and despite cinemas having been closed for much of the past 12 months.

British names are being tipped for success at the 93rd Academy Awards - moved from February because of the pandemic.

Ahead of Sunday's ceremony, ITV News Arts Editor Nina Nannar sat down with DJ and Baftas presenter Edith Bowman, to discuss who the likely winners will be and how red carpet ceremonies have been changed by the pandemic.

Promising Young Woman star Carey Mulligan, Pieces Of A Woman actress Vanessa Kirby and The Father’s Olivia Colman are all nominated.

The Father’s Sir Anthony Hopkins, Sound Of Metal’s Riz Ahmed, Mank’s Gary Oldman, Judas And The Black Messiah’s Daniel Kaluuya and Sacha Baron Cohen’s The Trial Of The Chicago 7 are also in the running.

Presenters on the night include Brad Pitt, Regina King and Harrison Ford - but there will be no host.

Some nominees will appear from London and other international locations, but the ceremony, this year featuring one of the most diverse group of nominees ever, will mostly take place in Los Angeles.
