Canadian Music Moments at the 2024 Oscars

There were a number of great Canadian musical moments at the televised Academy Awards on Sunday, March 10, 2024.

The only Canadian winner was The Last Repair Shop by Halifax's Ben Proudfoot, which won for Best Documentary Short Film). It follows four craftspeople who fix musical instruments for LA public school students at no cost.

The late, legendary musician Robbie Robertson (from Six-Nations) was nominated for Best Music (Original Score) for his work on Martin Scorsese's Killers of the Flower Moon but Ludwig Göransson took home the hardware for Oppenheimer

Robbie was honoured at the In Memoriam section of the event while Andrea and Matteo Bocelli performed 'Con te partirò'
