The Oscars: Who will take the crown?

By Lindsey McGuirk on January 29th, 2015:

The Oscars are undoubtedly the most prestigious awards ceremony of the season. The majestic red carpet decorated with nominees and their escorts dressed to the nines in expensive, designer gowns, while camera crews crane to get a glimpse of them.
