All the latest on the Oscar nominations..who got in, who was snubbed and what are they doing to avoid the big mistake regarding the best picture announcement at last year's awards! Plus the latest on the Barbie film, a new project for Ryan Reynolds and new releases with Garret Daly.

Classic movie music this afternoon from two Hitchcock films starring James Stewart; Vertigo and Rear Window. Aedín also remembers American writer and filmmaker Nora Ephron, the woman  behind such hit films as Sleepless in Seattle, When Harry Met Sally and Julie and Julia. Favourite songs too from 42nd St, Oklahoma, Gosford Park and Chicago.

Plus three scores by Alex North, from Cleopatra, The Misfits and A Streetcar Named Desire. And our singers include Lin-Manuel Miranda, Marilyn Monroe, Barbara Streisand, Chris Pine and Gene Kelly.
