The 84th Academy Awards take place this Sunday. Many talented filmmakers, actors and writers are nominated for an Oscar, and some of them have been in the red chair recently.

One film with lots of nominations, including Best Picture, Cinematography, Art Direction, Sound Mixing and Sound Editing, is 'War Horse'. Michael Morpurgo, the author of the book that both the stage-play - which is currently playing in Toronto (check the link at the bottom of the post to find out more) - and the Oscar-nominated film are based on, was in the red chair recently.

Check out his interview right here:
