If Olivia Colman should be so lucky as to win the best actress Oscar at the Academy Awards on Sunday, it's unlikely the gong they present her with will look quite like this.
Colman, who grew up in Blakeney and attended Norwich High School for Girls as well as Gresham's in Holt, is up for the award for her turn as Queen Anne in The Favourite.
The statuette - dubbed an 'Osc-her' - is one of several created by Odeon cinemas to highlight the gender imbalance at the Oscars - since they began in 1927, only 10.7pc of award winners have been women.

We've been treated to a fabulous set of films with The Favourite and A Star is Born as stand-out highlights, so it's no surprise to see the high hopes for Olivia Colman and Lady Gaga.'
