This Sunday (27th February) the world-famous red carpet will be rolled out for the glitz and the glamour that is the Oscars, the ceremony which rewards the Hollywood A-list. But do you know your Gwyneth from your Jennifer, your Scorsese from your Coen Brothers? If not, there is a multitude of film-themed apps in BlackBerry App World that entertain and educate, all in the name of film. And if you’re inspired to hit the flicks, there is even an app that lets you book cinema tickets.
