I totally see nominating Les Mis. It's a solid movie that breaks into transcendence at times. Hathaway, Seyfried, Barks, Redmayne, Jackman (though vocally strident) are all outstanding. Hooper's direction is beautiful as well.
After a second viewing of Les Miserables, I'm a bit more critical of Jackman's signing ability. Bring Him Home, while not nearly as cringe-inducing as anything Crowe did, was still pretty painful. That was the only part he really butchered, but it was Valjean's main song.
