Are you Oscars ready? Snazzy outfit sorted? Acceptance speech? Practice happy face when you don't win? With Oscar fever hotting up, it's Oscar award winning music all the way. Aedín checks out those in the music categories hoping to take home that gold statuette tomorrow night, including A Star is Born, Mary Poppins Returns, If Beale Street Could Talk and Black Panther. A chance also to hear some favourite past winners in the music categories, from The Way We Were to Falling Slowly, The Lord of the Rings to La La Land, and Out of Africa to Frozen.
