88th Academy Awards - Jerusalem, Israel
Jerusalem, Israel. 28th February, 2016. Scenes of Jerusalem's Cinema City, described by some as 'Hollywood on crack'. A $55,000 trip to Israel offered as part of an awards gift bag offered to the five Oscar-nominated directors and 20 lead and supporting actor and actress nominees, apparently partially funded by the Israeli government, is a cause of controversy ahead of the 88th Academy Awards ceremony at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California.
