The Oscars: Can You Hear the People Sing? I Dreamed a Dream that They Won All! Am I On My Own in this? Les Mis should have won more Oscar Awards!
At first, I was discontented. Well, okay, miserable. Only three awards out of eight possible? C'mon! Couldn't the judges see the talent, energy, and pathos that went into the production?
Although we don't watch the Oscars, I was curious to see how my favorite film of the year fared against the others. Best supporting actress? Of course! Best sound mixing? I agree. Best Makeup and Hairstyling? I can see that, too. But, I wanted them to win all. Then I settled down and realized two things: 1. there are other deserving actors/actresses, and 2. political correctness played a part in the judges decisions. I'm positive of that. Yes, even, and especially, in Hollywood!
So, I leave you with the musical performance of Les Misérables cast...now that deserved an Oscar of its own!
