Oscar Season: The Musical! Best Picture nominees go Broadway

Posted on

Oscar Season The Musical

Though Frozen was nominated for two Oscars this year, including Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song, the crop of nine Best Picture nominees doesn’t include a musical.

But what would happen if you took the nine very different films and made them into a musical? You would get some hilarious high-kicking results. From The Wolf of Wall Street cursing on beat to an American Hustle bathroom showdown reminiscent of Rent, it’s clear some of these musical ideas work better than others. Like most Oscar-related parodies that have been happening lately, 12 Years a Slave is respectfully not given a full production number. But if you ever wanted to see Dallas Buyers Club‘s Ron Woodroof do a kick-line next to Philomena, you are in luck! Watch below:
