Musical Tribute on Oscars to Feature Streep, Travolta, Zeta-Jones & More?

According to the Daily Mail, this year's Oscar's show is now planning a salute to movie musicals that could include Meryl Streep, John Travolta, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway, as well as Samantha Barks. Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron are in talks with the Oscars choreographer Rob Ashford about which songs, films and actors will appear.

"I gather that Mamma Mia! and Les Miserables will be included, which would mean the involvement of Streep, as well as Jackman, Hathaway, Barks, and possibly Eddie Redmayne and Amanda Seyfried (who was also in Mamma Mia!)," the Mail's Baz Bamigboye wrote.

The 85th Academy Awards will be presented live on Oscar Sunday, February 24, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood and Highland Center, and televised live by the ABC Television Network.
