Organizers are busy setting the final preparations for the Oscar Awards 2013 and based on the information released by the spokespersons of the Academy there will be many entertaining moments throughout the entire evening. Jennifer Hudson, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Russell Crowe will sing during a special moment to celebrate the comeback of musicals at the Oscar ceremony, Reuters reports.
The annual Hollywood awards that are set to take place on Sunday will feature several unprecedented artistic moments. Jennifer Hudson, Catherine Zeta-Jones and “Les Miserables” co-stars Anne Hathaway and Russell Crowe will all walk on stage to interpret various songs in an attempt to celebrate musicals.
Oscar producers, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, were very pleased to announce the actors’ performance. They told the press that the ceremony was necessary because actors felt the need to celebrate the musicals that have been produced in the past years. As it turns out, Oscar-winning stars have been equally delighted by the idea and they immediately agreed to take part in the event.
Even though musicals have been through a long period of decline, organizers could not help but notice that many more Hollywood producers have expressed their desire to create musicals during the last decade. Moreover, the productions have had a tremendous success winning numerous international prizes and awards. The first noteworthy musical produced so far was “Chicago”, who saw Catherine Zeta Jones make a remarkable performance in 2003. The production brought her a trophy for the Best Supporting Actress category.
Russell Crowe was named Best Actor due to his performance in 2001’s “Gladiator”. The actor was chosen to perform during this year’s Oscars edition because he was one of the cast members of the “Les Miserables”. The movie, inspired by Moliere’s novel, will most likely be one of the most awarded films at the gala, judging by the prizes it obtained in other international film festivals and by the nominations it received at Oscars 2013.
Other singers are due to perform at the movie festival including Adele, Shirley Bassey, Norah Jones and Barbara Streisand. Adele has been nominated for her “Skyfall” song which was featured on the James Bond film of the same name.
