I think I mentioned that in the movie thread. The main problem is he sang it full voice instead of using his falsetto. That song is supposed to be a prayer, and it's written very delicately. He performed it with the subtlety of a chainsaw.

Exactly.

I thought Jackman's singing overall was pretty weak. Which surprised me. Because I know he can sing. His first song was great. And his last song was great. Everything else was wonky.

But the performance, otherwise, is solid.

He more or less butchered every song. I really like Hugh Jackman, but he just should not have been cast in that role. His acting is very good, but his singing is very bad.

I don't really require Colm Wilkinson, but he just . . . wasn't good.

I thought, conversely, that Anne Hathway was great. Her singing wasn't the best, but it was good enough, and her acting was very powerful.

Colm Wilkinson is really good, and he originated the role, of course. But this is my favorite Bring Him Home - Alfie Boe from the 25th anniversary. He's just stupidly talented.

Colm was busy being ridiculously underused as the priest.

I see alot of childrens films having young kids. : )
Thank you! I worked on it, and in a field of 3 nominees, I'd have shrugged off the snub, but in an unprecedented in recent times field of 5, it's really disappointing. I'm glad some one enjoyed it!

So we can all agree that Les Mis was not worthy of its best picture nomination?

I agree with both nominations.
I thought Cooper was absolutely great in that film.

Jesus, I can't believe how much talk there is about a flippin musical in here. Do we need to open up a new subforum on doilies or something?

I would say I can't believe Bigelow didn't get a director not, but unfortunately I can, because it's hard to get the old white man club to recognize women for anything. Planning on seeing ZDT this weekend, so we'll see if it's as good as everyone says.

Meh. You should try adding a little culture to you life. It might improve your character.

I'm reminded of Nazir from the Dark Brotherhood when I read your posts. "I particularly hate jesters. All that singing.... and mirth."
