The Greatest Showman Not Competing for Best Picture

Despite all of the workings for a Best Picture nomination, 20th Century Fox is not pushing The Greatest Showman for an Oscar. This is good news to me. I have no interest in being forced to sit through another musical. The trailer has well over 2 million views. Some are surely excited about this.

Hugh Jackman is P.T Barnum in The Greatest Showman. Barnum founded the Ringling Brothers Circus and the film boasts a cast that includes Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, Zac Efron and Zendaya. The music comes from Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, the musical minds behind La La Land.
