I was elated when I heard the Oscars were planning a tribute to modern movie musicals this year, so you can understand my disappointment when the broadcast including no montage or clips from the varied selection of musicals from the last decade, but instead focused on live performances from just three films, one of which I don't count towards the tribute (as a nominee LES MIS would have had a performance anyway). Now CHICAGO and DREAMGIRLS are both excellent films, but to isolate them in such a rich genre felt like a letdown.
I decided to edit together my own tribute to the modern musical movie. I don't love every movie represented here (in fact I absolutely loathe one film, while another looks so terrible I haven't brought myself to watch it fully yet), but generally this montage contains some of my favourite films since 2001.
There are 24 films represented here. How many can you spot?
