The Oscars® race may be in its final stretch, but new research reveals that most Brits (68%) have yet to watch any of this year's nominated films. With over 62 individual movies tipped for Academy Award glory, a limited time to catch them all on the big screen and non-stop hype about who will walk away with which gong - it's easy to feel like we'll end up missing out.

In a bid to help film fans decide which movies are really must-see, TalkTalk TV has enlisted a new breed of film critics to give their unbridled views on what to watch. The critics are vocal, brutally honest and, unlike Hollywood experts, aged between five and seven.

See what they made of this year's Oscar contenders below:



"Awards Season is the best time of year for movie lovers, but all the five-star ratings and glowing reviews can make it hard to decipher what to watch first," said Aleks Habdank of TalkTalk TV.

"We all already know what the Hollywood experts think, now it's time to get the view from real people – and who better to tell it like it is than kids? Their frank opinions, shock, awe and giggles will hopefully give viewers enough insight to join in water cooler conversations about this year's best movies."

Many of this year's Oscar® films will be available on TalkTalk TV later this year. In the interim, movie fans can take advantage of over 50 previous Oscar®, BAFTA and Golden Globes award-winning films including the likes of Spotlight, 12 Years a Slave, The King's Speech and The Wolf of Wall Street.

All films within 'The Award Winners' collection are available on the TalkTalk TV Store and have been discounted by up to 50%.
