There have only been four Best-Picture winning musicals. A few years ago, La La Land almost became the fifth musical to receive such an honor but was left as a runner-up to the critically-acclaimed film, Moonlight. I’ve currently only seen two of these musicals (An American in Paris and The Sound of Music) but I am determined to one day watch them all.
For this week’s Who’s Your Favorite? I thought this would be a fun question to pop for you, my fellow movie lover. So, considering that I haven’t seen all of these movies I’m going to get straight to the point and not delve into detailing each film: which musical is your favorite?
For me, in comparing An American in Paris and The Sound of Music, The Sound of Music is undoubtedly my favorite. Don’t get me wrong, I love An American in Paris for its hummable score and lovely songs, but The Sound of Music touches my heart in a way that most movies can’t.
I can’t wait to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
