I guess I'm in the minority. I think they did a really good job but I don't think it's anywhere near Oscar caliber. Maybe Anne's its a slow year but definitely not Hugh.
If Hugh beats out Daniel day lewis, the race is fixed. I loved Zero dark thirty better than Les Miserable and I sing Les Miz constantly.

Was les miz nominated for best picture?

It would be better if Anne & Hugh sung their song together. They both can pull it off. And Anne should have a chance to sing again and vindicate herself after getting blasted for getting the lowest ratings of all time, on that very stage as the Oscar host with that James whoever guy.
Last year, they replaced the nominated song performances with a random Cirque de Soleil performance.

I think Anne's already going to erase any memory of her hosting gig with a win, which seems to be almost a certainty as this point.

They can only perform the new song, since only songs written directly for the movie are eligible (I saw someone screeching on Twitter about why "I Dreamed a Dream" wasn't nominated - it's not eligible!!), and that was Hugh's song, so we'll likely see him.

And I think Daniel Day Lewis is a certainty for Lincoln, but I'm just so happy Hugh finally got his Oscar nomination.

Well, I heard the musical numbers in Zero Dark Thirty weren't very catchy anyway.

I think Daniel Day Lewis is going to walk away with it. However, if they both showed up shirtless, Hugh would win this in a heartbeat.

Well, I haven't seen "Lincoln" yet, but yes, all the buzz indicates that the Oscar for Best Actor is all but official for Daniel Day-Lewis, and Best Supporting Actress for Anne Hathaway.

And you are right; the song category is for Best ORIGINAL Song, so ALL the other songs in Les Miz are not eligible, since they are from the muscial and not original!

I meant to post this earlier this week, but I got distracted by other things. We have been listening to the 10th cd in the truck since seeing the movie. So, we're listening and Michael is singing. I, of course, make the comment that I always do about the best Marius EVER, EVER, EVER! My older D says okay I agree but he's just too old and fat now to be Marius. I could have hurt her! In my eyes, Michael will always be Marius; Colm is forever Valjean, and Lea is Eponine. So, I'm old I guess.

I saw the movie again last night, this time with my best friend with whom I have seen the play at least 3 times. It was so great seeing it with someone who shares such a passion for the music. It was fantastic, even better than the first time!

One Day More is my favourite song from the play, and I absolutely adored the way it was done in the movie. One thing that always bothered me was Marius, essentially, choosing the barricade over Cosette, and crossing the stage to be with the students. I thought it didn't fit at all with their love story. But in the movie it shows that Cosette is already gone, which makes so much more sense. Every time it came back to Valjean in the carriage, singing his line, I got goosebumps. Just watching him watch Cosette made me cry.

Ooh, totally disagree. I think Hugh's acting was phenomenal. Anne's too, but I think Hugh was spectacular.The emotion he could convey with the tiniest glance gave me chills at times!

Why didn't you join us on the Golden Globes thread? I was thinking of you when he won. I knew how thrilled you'd be for him.

I was actually in the city tonight, seeing Annie on Broadway with my mom and sister. Just got home towards the end of the show, which I was DVR'ing. But saw the Hugh and Les Miz wins when they happened.

So happy for Hugh!

You know Anne won, too? She gave a classy speech honoring Sally Field.

Yup, read it on Twitter on the way home.

Actually, saw one of my favorite Les Mis alumni in Annie tonight: Anthony Warlow, who played Enjolras on the complete symphonic recording (I think he's played Valjean in Australia as well), plays Daddy Warbucks. It was so cool to finally see him on Broadway!

Wow, cool! It's such a small theatre world. It also must have been exciting for Warlow to be able to go all the way to Australia to do Valjean. What a way to go to that country.
