This is what Benedict Cumberbatch looks like as an Oscar statue

Whether they lose or win this weekend, Eddie Redmayne, Benedict Cumberbatch, Felicity Jones and Rosamund Pike are already the gold stars of the nation. To show their appreciation of UK talent over the last year, Odeon cinemas have created giant statues with the faces of the four. The British actors will be battling it out for Oscars on Sunday.
London Live went down to High Street Kensington Odeon to see the 2.5m tall Benedict Cumberbatch and Rosamund Pike. You wouldn’t struggle to make out who is who.

Similar to the golden postboxes that popped up in hometowns of medal winners at the London 2012 Olympics, the Oscars statues will take up residence outside the Odeon closest to where the actors grew up.

You can see Cumberbatch and Pike at High Street Kensington, Redmaybe in Putney and Jones at Birmingham New Street. 

Eddie and Benedict will go head to head for best actor, while Felicity and Rosamund compete for best actress. The 87th Oscars ceremony takes place on Sunday night at 1am.
