Oscars show to honour Wizard Of Oz

The Oscars are set to celebrate the 75th anniversary of The Wizard Of Oz.

The musical film, which starred Judy Garland as Dorothy, received six Oscar nominations in 1939, including one for best picture. It won Academy Awards for original score and song.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said: "We are delighted to celebrate the birthday of one of the most beloved movies of all time at this year's Oscars."

The pair previously revealed that this year's show will be themed to the idea of heroes on the big screen.

American Hustle and outer space drama Gravity lead the ceremony with 10 nominations each including nods for Amy Adams and Sandra Bullock respectively for the best actress Oscar.

Steve McQueen's 12 Years A Slave picked up nine nominations including best film, best actor for Chiwetel Ejiofor and best director for McQueen.

The Oscars, which will be hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, take place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on March 2.
