If this movie (or IN THE HEIGHTS, for that matter) gets Oscar attention, it will be a good sign for producers of any similar upcoming projects. Regardless of whether you think EVITA or CHICAGO was the kickoff film for this current spate of stage-to-screen adaptations, no film version of a contemporary musical (and by that I mean a musical introduced on Broadway since 1990) has received a single Academy Award nomination; all the ones that have been recognized were filmings of "classic" (pre-'90s) titles. And I'll add that every one of those releases was nominated in some category, with the sole (justifiable) exception of CATS.
