The Oscars award show will take place on Sunday, March 4, 2018.

They will be held at the Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood and Highland Centre in Hollywood, California.

The Academy Awards is an annual ceremony hosted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Celebrating it's 90th year, the show (dubbed The Oscars after the man-shaped statuette received on winning) is considered by most in the entertainment industry as the highest honour to receive in recognition for their work on and off screen.

The Academy is a 6,000-strong group made up of film industry professionals such as actors, directors and producers - making the awards stand-out against shows such as the Golden Globes as it is a vote by the nominees' peers.

Who is hosting this year's Academy Awards?
Late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel has been announced as this year's master of ceremonies.

This will be the second year running that he has performed hosting duties for The Academy.

Jimmy also took the helm for the 2016 and 2012 Emmy Awards, the 2007 ESPYS, and presenting the American Music Awards five times.

Previous presenters have included Ellen DeGeneres, Neil Patrick Harris, Seth MacFarlane and Chris Rock.
