It’s not enough to present an award at the Oscars anymore.
Now everyone wants to sing and dance!
As if musical numbers weren’t the bane of the Oscars for most viewers, this year the Oscars could turn into a musical extravanganza.
Are you ready for "Oscars: The Musical?"
Oscar host Hugh Jackman won’t be the only actor singing for his supper. Access Hollywood is reporting that the Oscars will feature musical performances by Beyonce (again …) and “High School Musical” stars Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens.
Hopefully, presenter and "Twilight" hottie Robert Pattinson won’t be asked to sing. Just saying.
Although we’re sure his legions of fans would not mind one bit.
"Mamma Mia!" stars Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper also are set to sing if scheduling conflicts can get resolved.
Hugh and Beyonce have reportedly been rehearsing in New York City.
As for Hugh’s song-and-dance, his “Australia” director, Baz Luhrmann, is said to be in charge of that number.
Oh, dear. Considering how few Oscar nods that movie got, this may not be such a good idea.
But it could turn out be a good theatrical move for Luhrmann, who may not have much of a celluloid career left.
Move over, Julie Taymor!
