2012 Best Musical Performance Winner

Les Misérables


The category always gets a little thrown off when an actual musical comes out; it’s kind of hard for scenes inserted into regular films to compete.  I didn’t even like Les Misérables but nothing short of sheer haterdom could allow me to deny the power of this scene, one which may well single handedly earn Anne Hathaway an Oscar.  There’s always a tension in musicals between people who can sing but can’t act (*cough* Eddie Redmayne) and people who can act but can’t sing (*cough* Russell Crowe).  Hathaway found the perfect solution: just be able to do both.
