The Oscars in numbers
Ahead of Sunday's ceremony we look at the Academy Award record-breakers
Sunday's Oscars have already broken the record for the youngest and oldest person to be nominated for best actress.
If 85-year-old Emmanuelle Riva wins for her performance in Amour she will beat the current record held by 81-year-old Jessica Tandy for Driving Miss Daisy.
And if 9-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis wins for Beasts of the Southern Wild she will become the youngest person ever to win an Oscar.
It took until 2009 for Kathryn Bigelow to become the first female to win best director for The Hurt Locker; and in wasn't until 2001 that Halle Berry became the first black person to win best actress.
But who was the first African American actor to ever win an Oscar and which film has the most nominations without any wins?
The Academy Awards are broadcast in the UK on Sky HD Oscars from 1.30am on Monday 25 February. Viewers can watch the red carpet live from 11.30pm on Sky Living on Sunday 24 February.
