This film was my first exposure to the musical. I'd never heard the music. Never seen it staged. Never read the book it's based on. Nothing. I knew absolutely zero about the thing.

Probably helped me enjoy it more. And while I think the thing has some major strengths, I would be lying if I said I wasn't slightly disappointed. My expectations were high. I was expecting a home run. I got a crucial stand-up double that allowed a runner to score.

Yea, comedy has always been criminally overlooked. As has pretty much all genre stuff like horror, sci-if, or action movies in general. I think there's a perception those types of movies are not important enough or are not actors showcases. Every now and then something can transcend its genre like Silence of the Lambs, Lord of the Rings, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Dark Knight, etc...

But comedy is hard to break though......ironically, wasn't last years best pic winner the Artist considered a silent comedy?

I don't really agree about the adaptation element. If you don't think the movie is worthy, that's fine. But that particular aspect of your argument strikes me as a bit strange. Who care if it's adapted, and who cares if it ran on Broadway? This thing is it's own animal, and should be judged on it's own merits (or lack thereof). Which, I admit, may be easier said than done for those who are familiar with the stage version.

I happen to think it deserves to be recognized, but I don't think it deserves a win. I've only seen four of the nominated films, but I think the other three I've seen are much better films.
Because to me, it says a lot about your film when many believe your gazillion dollar production doesn't measure up to Broadway. And if you're filming a musical, you should not be rewarded for purposefully picking a cast based on how much money they'd bring in versus which ones can perform the best.

If you want an adaptation, Skyfall was a very creative twist to traditional Bond movies.

Yup. Really good point. The Academy has a weird love for highly dramatic movies and history movies. Even when we're talking about Best Screenplay, you don't see scripts like 50/50 or Knocked Up in the conversation. Shame, because good, natural dialogue and character development is hard to do.

Nails it? I thought Amanda Seyfried turned in the worst performance of the film.

I wouldn't say "nails it," but Seyfried was fine for the role. Cosette, even in the stage play, is a pretty forgettable role. I thought she was fine.

I genuinely don't know what to say if you think Seyfried was worse than Russel Crowe.

The only people I thought "nailed it" were Sacha Baron Cohen, Helena Bonham Carter, Samantha Barks, and especially Eddie Redmayne.

Her singing was atrocious. Her singing was worse than Crowe's, yes.

Denzel turned in maybe the most nuanced performance of his film career.
Happened in the wrong year though. Daniel Day-Lewis has to be the favorite to win Best Actor.

Crowe's performance was an abomination. I agree with that. But I'm pretty sure you guys don't have ears. Seyfried was horrendously pitchy. I kept shaking my head 'no' whenever she was singing.

Frankly, I can't remember ever seeing a performance of Cosette that I did like. Agree with FMB that it's a forgettable part, and even when done on stage, the performances tend to come off as shrill and unpleasant, and that's with top level stage people doing it. I thought Seyfried finally brought some humanity to the role.

And I think Cohen (especially) and Bonham Carter are mediocre at best and cringe worthy at worst.

But I also don't care for those characters and their story in general.
