THIS YEAR’S OSCARS take place tonight, as Ireland grapples with the emerging results of the general election.

Just like going to the cinema itself, watching the Oscar race is a nice bit of escapism into the world of Hollywood. But it’s also a way of stoking up fierce debate amongst friends and pals on social media. 

So with that in mind we want to know: what did you make of the films up for the Best Picture statuette?

Let us know using the player ratings below. Simply slide the slider until it reaches the number you’d allocate.
