From the sweeping scores of Elmer Bernstein to the chilling strings of Bernard Herrmann, the music of the movies has long transported audiences to other worlds. With the Academy Awards only weeks away, NPR's resident film music buff Andy Trudeau joins Weekend Edition Sunday for his 10th year as a guide to the film score Oscar nominees.

In part one of a three-part series, he speaks with NPR's Sheilah Kast about nominees Jan A.P. Kaczmarek for Finding Neverland and Thomas Newman for Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events.
