It’s an Oscar party on Stage Notes!
After eighty-five Academy Award ceremonies and hundreds of films nominated for Best Motion Picture, only ten of those winning films have been musicals. The American Film Institute defines a “musical” as “a feature-length film in which music and lyrics significantly advance the plot, develop character, or are otherwise integral to the film narrative.”
Join host Robert Hammond as he showcases musicals that have won the coveted Best Motion Picture Oscar.
Television icon Ellen DeGeneres returns to host the Oscars for a second time. The Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2013 will be presented on Oscar Sunday, March 2, 2014, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center.
