The montage for 'Les Misérables' was the first one to be introduced & shown (amongst all the other Best Picture nominees) - immensely proud moment. And they didn't even play off Hathaway during her acceptance speech
Considering the fact that it was an even spread of the awards all through, winning three is a great achievement. To put up a case for bragging, it won the same number of Oscars as Argo, and won more than what Lincoln and Silver Linings Playbook did (although I'm still miffed about that Production Design loss...
And about that medley, these are the Oscars, so it had to be done in a different manner...
But whatever they did, they were simply outstanding - completely nailed it! Eddie Redmayne actually sang properly WITHOUT sounding like a muppet
- even Crowe & Seyfried sounded much better than they did in the film. Tveit's RED pocket handkerchief (or whatever it was), did receive a few giggles from my side
And yes, they all sang live - the earpieces were actually visible
*jumps up and down* And I saw Ramin Karimloo and Jeff Nicholson (and I suspect I even caught a glimpse of Killian Donnelly too)!!
A completely deserved standing O!!
Anyone else noticed that all the cast members (main + ensemble) were actually dressed in white, blue, red, and black?
