One Oscar Les Miserables won't be nominated for is "Best Original Musical." Wait a minute, you're thinking, that's crazy talk -- there's no category called "Best Original Musical." As a matter of fact, there is such a category, but it's just never been activated.
I'll save the review, but the faithful film of the musical phenomenon is just as emotionally exhausting and breathtaking as it should be. It left me properly devastated and touched, and surely ready to analyze the performances.

When you venture out to see Les Miserables, go with an open mind and an open heart. Allow the actors to tell their story their way, which may be different than what you've experienced in the past.
Now that the Hathaway Effect has been widely acknowledged, how could it be manipulated? Now I'm not suggesting any nefarious motives or a full-scale Elizabeth Warren-inspired NYSE investigation into vaginagate, but...
The musical Les Misérables has finally made it to the screen, with even more pomp and circumstance than the stage. And, I am happy to report, just as much glory.
The harshest thing I can say about Tom Hooper's Les Misérables is that I can only imagine those who have not seen the original show wondering what the fuss has been all about.
From his Jean Valjean role in Les Miserables and his generous on-the-spot performances at various celebrations, including a lunch hosted by Ron Meyer, Hugh Jackman is truly a songman you want to have around.
