Garland's children to honour Oz

Judy Garland's three children - Liza Minnelli, Lorna Luft and Joey Luft - are to help celebrate her most famous film The Wizard of Oz at the Oscars.

The late Hollywood star's three children haven't always got on, but they are said to be on good terms these days and enthusiastic about this opportunity to celebrate their mother in such a high-profile way.

The Hollywood Reporter claims to have learned from "multiple sources" that they will reunite on stage at the 86th Academy Awards to help commemorate the classic film's 75th anniversary.

THR reports that the specifics of how the ceremony will commemorate the film are yet to be confirmed.

Liza, Judy's daughter by her second husband, director Vincente Minnelli, is a legendary actress and singer in her own right, winning a best actress Oscar for Cabaret in 1972.

Lorna and Joey's father was Judy's third husband and manager, Sid Luft. Lorna is also an actress and singer, while Joey has stayed out of the public eye.

The Academy did not respond to THR's request for comment.
