Such is the clout and importance of Venice that it has hosted the world premiere of the best picture Oscar winner for the last two years in succession – Spotlight and Birdman – and the biggest winner, numerically speaking, the year before that, with Gravity.

Thematically, Venice is now akin to a launch-pad for all the Oscar-related activities. The movies, the stars, the big production and distribution houses rolling in the big bucks and yes, the most important constituent, the critics. All these come together to create an extravagant show of glamour, power and beauty on the marshes of the Venetian Lagoon.
