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.

Barnum, The Greatest Showman is an original musical that celebrates the birth of show business and tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.

Although it is being released on Christmas Day, there is no indication that they are going for an Oscar campaign. Just light family fun for the holidays.
