Yesterday, Showbiz 411 heralded news that the Academy Awards presentation on February 24 will include a tribute to movie musicals from the last decade. We can therefore expect Mamma Mia! to be part of that list, which is why there is speculation of Meryl being courted for participation. I certainly hope at the very least she shows up (healthy) to present the Best Actor category. And hey, if she's already going to be there, why not show off your pipes at the same time? If we get confirmation in the next few months of Meryl's official casting in the rumored filming of Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods, belting out a tune onstage at the Oscars could be a nice sort of "see, this is why they want me for another musical" moment. I've only found one article that reports Meryl's possible involvement, so we'll just have to wait and see.
Tomorrow I'll post my SAG predictions.
