There’s nothing like waking up bright and oh-so-early to watch the red carpet being physically rolled out, only to have the proceedings delayed by the night before’s rainfall. Ah well, as they say, the show shall go on.
In the meantime, we’re hearing more and more about what kind of show to expect this Sunday. The ceremony’s producers – Craig Zadan and Neil Meron – who have been a staple on Broadway and were also involved in the Oscar-winning musical Chicago – are working on a tribute to the genre of movie musicals. With Dame Shirley Bassey, Adele and Barbra Streisand performing, as well as the Les Miserables cast members Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway, it promises to be an all-singing, all-dancing kind of affair.
