The Oscars; the one night of the year when under-dressed is definitely not an option. The 85th Academy Awards saw a parade of perfectly preened A-Listers gliding down the red carpet in their Sunday best, and we- mere earthlings- watched on in awe.

While fashion faux pas and speech gaffes are to be expected, every year the short-list of nominees demonstrates the glaring inconsistencies within the Academy voting system. How can a director, who has a film nominated for Best Picture, not be short-listed for Best Director?
