It is not known what those attending the Oscars have planned, but expect to see large numbers of people stick to the ongoing tradition of wearing black outfits in solidarity with the movement.
One tradition that will be broken at this year's ceremony will be who presents the Best Actor and Actress award.
Usually, these are presented by the winner of the previous year's award from the opposite gender – i.e. the Best Actor winner would present the award for the Best Actress.
However, last year's Best Actor recipient, Casey Affleck for Manchester By The Sea has withdrawn from the event after reports of two instances of sexual misconduct from the 2010 movie I'm Still Here were made against him in January.
Variety are reporting that replacing Affleck as Best Actress presenter will be both Jennifer Lawrence and Jodie Foster, both previous winners of the award, for roles in Silence of the Lambs, The Accused and Silver Linings Playbook respectively.
Affleck is said to have made this decision himself as to avoid distraction about the claims made against him, but the move by the Academy to replace him with Foster and Lawrence has been widely welcomed on Twitter.
