This year’s Academy Awards will include a special celebration of movie musicals of the last ten years. “The musical as a motion picture genre has had a remarkable renaissance in the last decade,” said producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron today in a press release. “We are excited to showcase three musical films—Chicago, Dreamgirls and Les Misérables—on our Oscar show.” Oscars for outstanding film achievements of 2012 will be presented on Sunday, February 24 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood and will be hosted by Seth MacFarlane live on the ABC Television Network.  The Oscar presentation will be televised live in more than 225 countries worldwide.

    I knew it. It was going one of two ways,either he goes all family guy cutting edge tearing them a new one and making it lively, OR….he goes all I love Sinatra watch me sing people, dreaded that, so will be passing on watching them now. It’s strictly a highlight reel for me now. He will be as schmaltzy as billy crystal and his old timey schtick. Pass.
