In anticipation for Into The Woods and early testimonials that LAST MIDNIGHT of The Witch performed by Meryl Streep is a SHOW-STOPPER & EPIC.
What were the Musical-Vocal Performances that merited an Oscar win or nominations or even snubbed.
Of the recent past:
1. Anne Hathaway = I’ve Dreamed A Dream (Les Miserables 2012)
2. Jennifer Hudson = I’m Not Going (Dreamgirls 2006)

^I love that musical number. I don’t care what the haters say, I think Latifah earned her nomination (for more than just this song, but it most definitely helped).August 23, 2014 at 7:21 pm #158981
Catherine Zeta-Jones- “Can’t Do It Alone”
Catherine Zeta-Jones- “Cell Block Tango”
She’s brilliant in both. Not to mention, pregnant at the time of filming.
And what about All That Jazz? She totally killed it in that movie!
I think “Can’t Do It Alone” is brilliant work on her part, and gorgeously photographed.August 23, 2014 at 7:47 pm #158983
Meryl Streep = He’s me pal (Ironweed 1987)
I loved Meryl at the end of Postcards. Some people didn’t…I thought she owned it. [/quote]
Here’s the clip (not good quality):
Meryl Streep = I’m Checkin Out (Postcards from the Edge 1990)
Although “You Don’t Know Me” was great as wellAugust 23, 2014 at 8:00 pm #158984
Great one that hasn’t been mentioned yet: John Cameron Mitchell – “Wig in a Box” from Hedwig and the Angry Inch
I hope Sunset Boulevard the musical gets made into a film so the actress playing Norma can do this with “With One Look.”August 23, 2014 at 8:56 pm #158987
