Few Musicals Have Been Nominated for Adapted or Original Screenplay

30 December 2014 9:19 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Into the Woods, Disney’s adaptation of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Broadway musical, could land an Oscar nomination for its screenplay, which was adapted by Lapine. It may be a stretch for Into the Woods to land in the top five, though. Adapted — or even original — musical screenplays may be discounted for the music in the Oscar race, which might be why few musicals are nominated for adapted or original screenplay. Twelve musicals have been nominated for adapted screenplay since 1929, but 2002’s Chicago was the last musical to do so.

Adapted from Bob Fosse and Fred Ebb’s 1975 musical of the same name, Chicago won six of its 13 nominations, including best picture. It was the first musical since 1968’s Oliver! to win best picture, but its screenplay lost to The Pianist.

Heidi Thomas talks Vanessa Hudgens and reworking 'Gigi'

21 November 2014 8:30 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

How do you solve a problem like Gigi? That was the task given to Heidi Thomas, the writer behind British hit Call the Midwife, who is adapting the book of Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's musical for its upcoming Broadway production (starring High School Musical's Vanessa Hudgens). The musical Gigi, based on the Colette novella, began as a film—specifically, Vincente Minnelli's 1958 classic. An adaptation hit Broadway in 1973, but the production was considered somewhat of a flop.
