The Oscars

The Academy Awards are happening this Sunday evening. We'll take a look at some of this year's Oscar nominees for best film score, including music by John Williams, who now has 47 nominations. He's up for two different films this year. And we'll hear from this year's frontrunner, Ludovic Bource's score for "The Artist."
