Broadway at the Oscars - BWW Rounds Up 2014's Theatrical Nominees

Onstage, in the studio or behind the curtain, theatre artists know what it takes to make ideas come alive for an audience. But that creativity isn't exclusive to the stage. This year's films showcased some of the Great White Way's most talented individuals, both in front of and behind the camera.

Whether it be silver screen giants -- those repeat award-winners such as AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY's Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts -- or behind-the-scenes stars, such as GREAT GATSBY costume designer Catherine Martin and FROZEN's composing team Robert Lopez & Kristen Anderson Lopez -- we're rooting for all of our Broadway babies this awards season.

The Academy Awards will air live on ABC tonight, March 2, 2014, hosted by Ellen DeGeneres and featuring a performance by the great Idina Menzel. BroadwayWorld has rounded up this year's Broadway alums, so scroll down to learn more about the stars, and be sure to let us know your picks!
