Celine Dion dreams of winning an Oscar for portraying the late opera star Maria Callas in a Hollywood biopic of the soprano.

The 'My Heart Will Go On' singer admits she has a recurring dream of her acceptance speech after winning an Oscar for her work on the big screen.

She says: "(In my dream) I am at the front row at the Academy Awards with my mother, husband and son and it's announced I have won the Oscar for my role as opera star Maria Callas.

"First I thank the Academy in English, then I speak Maria's language, Greek, then some French to thank the people at home. I look at the faces of mother, husband and son. Priceless."
