Meanwhile, final voting for the 86th Oscars is under way. The voting opened on 14 February at 8am PT (4pm UK time) and will close on Tuesday, 25 February at 5pm PT (9pm UK time), according to the Academy.

PricewaterhouseCoopers will verify the results as members vote online or cast paper ballots, reports Mirror.

According to Ladbrokes, Steve McQueen's 12 Years A Slave still remains the strong odds-on favourite to win the top Best Picture gong at 4/9. The film is also a strong contender for the best actor trophy. Gravity's Alfonso Cuaron is leading the pack of best director favourites with odds of 4/11.

Recently, reports started circulating about the best actor winner being revealed during a CNN story about how Academy Awards statuettes are made. Viewers got a big surprise as the camera zoomed in on a nameplate showing actor Leonardo DiCaprio as this year's Oscar winner for best performance by an actor in a leading role.

However, it was later cleared that all nameplates are readied so the winners can have them fixed to their statuettes during the official after-party, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The 2014 Oscars, to be hosted by comedian and talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, will take place on Sunday, 2 March, 2014, at the Dolby Theatre in the Hollywood & Highland Center. This will be DeGeneres's second run at hosting the awards ceremony which, according to reports, will celebrate "movie heroes".
