Oscars to mark 'Oz' anniversary

The Academy Awards will mark the 75th anniversary of 1939's "The Wizard of Oz," which earned a best picture nomination against other classic films such as "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington," "Stagecoach" and Oscar winner "Gone with the Wind."

"We are delighted to celebrate the birthday of one of the most beloved movies of all time at this year's Oscars," producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron said in a statement Tuesday.

"Oz" received six nominations and won two honors at the ceremony in 1940: original song for "Over the Rainbow" and original score.

It was previously announced that this year's Oscars ceremony would be "a celebration of movie heroes." The awards show, hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, takes place March 2.
