Customers are looking forward to their Oscar parties on 28th Feb. Perhaps you have a favorite nominee. We love best picture nominees Mad Max Fury Road and The Martian. For best Actress we love the home grown leading lady Cate Blanchett in Carol and Leo DiCaprio in The Revenant. For special effects, sound, music and editing you can’t go past Star Wars the Force Awakens. Our favorite category has to be for the best costume, so many to choose from.
