The Oscars take place on Sunday 28 February. Chris Rock is set to host, despite calls for him to stand down in the wake of another #OscarsSoWhite diversity crisis.

No black actors were nominated for awards for the second year running, prompting the likes of Will Smith, Jada Pinkett-Smith and Spike Lee to rule themselves off the attendees list.
