The filmed 2016 stage performance of Hamilton was supposed to be released in theaters on October 16, 2021, but of course, due to COVID-19, it’s now premiering on Disney+ on July 3. Filmed stage productions rarely get Oscar nominations, but it has happened, notably twice in 1975 when James Whitmore received a Best Actor nomination for Give ‘Em Hell, Harry, and Ingmar Bergman’s filmed stage production of Mozart’s The Magic Flute received a nomination for Best Costume Design.
Even though we don’t know at this point if it will appear on the Oscars eligibility list next year, given the Oscars’ modified rules for this year, it could still technically qualify for consideration. Do you guys think it will be made eligible? And if so, which categories do you think it may win?

No. This isn’t a movie; this is PBS Great Performances.June 23, 2020 at 4:19 pm #1203548701
Maybe they’ll give Lin Manuel some kind of honorary Oscar, but no, I don’t think it will get anything competitive, because it’s not a film, it’s a filmed stage show.June 24, 2020 at 9:54 am #1203549802
Two of my most hyped movies…who do you expect to have better chances to get nominated between Winslet and Ronan?June 24, 2020 at 10:06 am #1203549833
If it has an original song it might get nominated.
Have a great day if you see this!

I don’t know if the new rules allow to compete in both Oscar and Emmy, but if the answer is “no”, it would be a dumb movement to compete at the Oscars when they are probably winning at the Emmys. Also, the AMPAS is so conservative to reward a filmed stage production, while the ATAS created a Variety Special category to reward some of these productions (and even nominated some performances).June 24, 2020 at 10:13 am #1203549854

It won’t, as it’s just a filmed version of the stage production and there’s been nothing said about any additional music being attached to it.
Their best chance at a competitive Oscar would be if they frauded Leslie Odom Jr. into supporting actor. He’s the big standout MVP of the original cast, and while he won’t get in for lead where he won the Tony, it’s possible he could benefit from the lead performance in supporting trick.
However, I just don’t see the Oscars going for stage performances, so I think that’s a long shot.June 24, 2020 at 11:02 am #1203549991
Honestly, everyone wants to say no because it’s a filmed stage show, but it is a motion picture and will be eligible.
We’ll have to see it when it comes out and see if the filmed version has the same spark and emotional pull as seeing the show live in person. If it does, then watch out! Hollywood loves Hamilton and I think they would make an exception if this filmed live performance hits hard and the other Oscar competition is weak… which I think it will be. Even with the Oscars being pushed back till April, I know a lot of studios are still holding off their films until the next Oscar season cycle of 2021-2022.
We already know viewership on Disney+ is going to be through the roof, so critics reviews will probably play a key role in the perception of whether or not this will be an awards-worthy “film”.June 24, 2020 at 11:18 am #1203550070

Documentaries have been double dipping and getting both Oscar & Emmy nominations. I think it’s DAF, even though I have no idea on the reasoning behind allowing it to be eligible for both. I mean the streaming narrative films that get Oscar nominations never show up at the Emmy’s.June 24, 2020 at 11:20 am #1203550086
If this particular filmed stage version was intended to be released in cinemas then it should be allowed for consideration like the new rules state. I’m confused though, I though there were plans on making an actual traditional film of this.June 24, 2020 at 11:40 am #1203550170

There are, but that’s apparently gonna be sometime down the line.
I’m guessing by the time that it comes out that a lot of the original cast will have aged out of their roles. Though of course, the roles age decades over the course of the show, so it’s kind of hard to say if someone’s too old or young to play one of these parts.
Still, it Lin Manuel gets to old to do it in the actual film, I wonder if he gives the role of Hamilton to Anthony Ramos like he did with In the Heights.June 24, 2020 at 11:51 am #1203550199
hamilton is overrated historically inaccurateJune 24, 2020 at 12:03 pm #1203550240
real americans care if its historically accurate
Well, considering it quickly became one of the most beloved Broadway musicals of all time, I’d say real Americans love it.
I’m done feeding the troll.
