Hollywood loves to cast illustrious stars as famous historical figures, even though it doesn’t always care if the former necessarily resembles the latter (see, for instance, 2015’s Steve Jobs , in which Michael Fassbender doesn’t look much like the Apple visionary ).

The Oscars is undoubtedly the most star-studded event in the awards season calendar.

One thing’s for sure – the red carpet is going to look very different to the way it did 20 years ago. Back in 1998 we had Brad Pitt in red tinted spectacles, Drew Barrymore covered in body glitter and Demi Moore sporting a curly bob hairdo.
