Poll Results: Best Stage-to-Film Musical Adaptation

Raise your hand if you saw this one coming:

Grease

THE RESULTS:
– Grease: 6 votes
– My Fair Lady: 4 votes
– Les Misérables: 3 votes
– The Phantom of the Opera: 3 votes
– The Sound of Music: 3 votes
– West Side Story: 3 votes
– Sweeney Todd: 2 votes
– Dreamgirls: 1 vote
– Hairspray: 1 vote
– The Rocky Horror Picture Show: 1 vote

The write-ins:
– Cabaret: 1 vote
– The Wiz: 1 vote

I guess I underestimated the power of John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. Hard to believe Grease is 35 years old now. Pretty sure I still have the vinyl for that soundtrack sitting around somewhere, heh..

This Week’s Poll: The big news last week was the announcement of this year’s Oscar nominations, and everyone and their mother have been voicing their opinions about them since. I won’t get into who got snubbed or what shouldn’t have been nominated (yet), but I am curious to hear what you guys think of the Best Picture nominees. What is your personal favorite from this year’s nominees?

Have a great week, folks!

    I’m going with Beasts of the Southern Wild as my fav, but that might change once I see ZD30 & Django. Not really interested in Lincoln or Les Mis.
