LOS ANGELES, Jan. 29 (UPI) -- This year's Oscars ceremony will pay tribute to the 75th anniversary of Hollywood's "The Wizard of Oz," a Best Picture nominee in 1939, producers said.

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

"The Wizard of Oz" earned a total of six Oscar nominations, winning the awards for Best Original Score and Song. It lost its Best Picture bid to "Gone with the Wind."

Oscars honoring the best in film for 2013 are to be presented March 2 at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center.
