I told him to get me tickets to the local Les Miz showing in the theater here on Christmas!!
Yeah, it's definitely a perk. What's funny is that the Les Mis premiere was way more crowded than the Hobbit premiere last week (although at the Hobbit, we all got official Gandalf hats). Musicals rule!!!

My mom got me tickets for the movie as an early Christmas present too! However, with two family events and a new baby in the family (my new nephew, born last week)...I have to wait until the day after Christmas. As big Les Miz fans as my family is, ditching Christmas day this year ain't gonna fly.

Still can't wait!!!!

I'm a huge Les Mis fan. We'll be at Disney for Christmas and I'm gonna have to sneak this in somewhere. Either go at midnight or take a break from crazy Disney crowds to see it. Although it was quite embarrassing the way I cried watching the musical I wonder if I'll be ok after lol j/k I will probably cry though.

"sorry, Hugh . . ."

I saw her clip of when she gave the finger to the paparazzi at her wedding, but not this one.

Thanks, Jen.

That was funny. And her going off on Hugh saying he can make crepes. "Of course you can! You disgust me!"

That scene between Fantine and Valjean is based on something that actually happened. I read the story in a book about Les Mis: Victor Hugo had seen a man shove a handful of slush down the back of a prostitute's dress, and the woman reacted in surprise by turning around and slapping him. The man had her arrested, and the woman was about to be sent to jail for 6 months for 'attacking a gentleman'.

Hugo followed them to the police station (where the woman was now hysterically crying that she hadn't done anything wrong) and reported what he had seen to the police. They tried to dismiss him, but finally he told them who he was, and the woman was released 15 minutes later.

She was heard telling friends "How good the monsieur was...", which is where Fantine's "Good monsieur..." line comes from in the story.

No, they just do the Ensemble Award for the SAG Awards, since these are given out by the actor's union.

That's too bad. But, I'm so happy for the Les Mis group for the SAG nomination!

I can't wait to see the movie. I won't be able to make it on Christmas day, but as soon afterward as I can get to the theater, I'll be there!

I think the Golden Globe and a couple smaller awards gives them out too.


Thanks Jen for posting the list. On my personal unofficial nomination list I picked almost all the same people. The only differences were that I haven't seen Skyfall or Argo yet.

The Golden Globes split awards between Drama and Musical/Comedy, but they don't do an ensemble award. Some of the critics awards do, I think, but the major award for ensemble are the SAG awards.

I still have to see Argo...

Poor Anne . . . her wardrobe malfunction seems to be getting more publicity than the premiere . . . she was "devastated" about it.

Her reply to Matt Lauer was fantastic, though.

I find her fairly insufferable in general and it's ramped up exponentially with this publicity run (I ate only radishes, I mean oatmeal, I mean I ate nothing, I mean... I lost weight dangit, give me the statue!!!), but I cannot with her "sadness" over the photo.

Here's a way for that not to happen, dear - wear underwear when you leave the house in a dress.

Where do you get the tickets? We've been checking Fandango, movietickets.com, moviefone, and can't figure out how to get them in our area.
