Article Excerpt:

Five stories we didn't share in all the hulaballoo of our trip to Los Angeles,the recovery week's madness and now our Thanksgiving prep.Can't let these stories go unremarked upon since many of them are related tothis year's Oscar raceas well as2015and possibly2016.Let's get ahead of ourselves!

Barnum by way of Jackson / Amy to play Janis

1.Hugh Jackman as P.T.Barnum
When I wascoming out ofInto the Woodsthe other dayandcoming out ofThe Last Five Yearsback in Toronto,I was wracked with indecision about how I felt.My cinephile self was mounting a civil war with my inner musical theater geek who is deeply devoted to both shows.The former musical is among my top 3 favorite Sondheim shows (the others beingCompany&Follies) and the latter is literally my favorite original musical of the 21st century to date.The solution to this inner turmoil is surely ORIGINAL SCREEN MUSICALS.We haven't had one sinceDancer in the Dark,right?So I'm absolutely excited to see Hugh Jackman belt out whatever tunes they're writing for him as P.T.Barnum ina new musical biopic about the circus pioneer calledThe Greatest Showman on Earth.Having seen Jackman absolutely slay audiences on Broadway as another flamboyant showman (Peter Allen in "The Boy from Oz"),this could be his Oscar ticket if the movie is good.The songs are by a composing duo you know from "Smash"but before you get too excited it's not from the composers behind the fictional musical "Bombshell,"damnit!,but the composers behind the fictional musical "Hit List"which wasn't half as good. (Sigh)

Bette Midler as Janis Joplin (sort of) in The Rose (1979)2.Amy Adams as Janis Joplin
Should Adams be nominated (maybe) and lose (definitely) theBest Actress OscarforBig Eyesthis season she will join the "Biggest Actress Loser Club"that is currently a three-person tea party with Thelma Ritter,Glenn Close,Deborah Kerr.Fine company,don't you think?The solution is UNDOUBTEDLYa Janis Joplin biopicsince Amy Adams has a great singing voice,considerable awards momentum,and is still young enough to be interesting to Oscar...for at least another few years.We're far enough away from Bette Midler's wildly acclaimed take on that iconic musician (by another name) in The Rose (1979) that the earlier Oscar run won't be an issue either.[More after the jump...]
