Jersey Boys Movie on The Atlantic’s List of Early Oscar Predictions for 2015!

March 7th, 2014

Kevin Fallon of has a marvelous feature with early Oscar 2015 predictions! No surprise to us–The upcoming JERSEY BOYS film adaptation is on the list! Check out what Fallon has to say:

Jersey Boys
Release Date: June 20

The past decade or so has shown that film adaptations of modern musicals have the potential to be epic (Les Miserables) and great fun (Hairspray) … or bloated and bad (Nine). There’s reason, though, to be optimistic about the upcoming adaptation of the Tony-winner Jersey Boys. The biggest reason, of course, is that Clint Eastwood is directing. The production also features Oscar-bait-by-numbers plot that peeks into the tumultuous and corrupt real-life story of one of the industry’s most beloved artists, the Four Seasons. It was wise of Eastwood to cast John Lloyd Young, who won a Tony for originating the Frankie Valli role on Broadway, and even wiser to cast Christopher Walken—a Best Supporting Actor contender if there ever was one.

So, for which Academy Award categories do you think JERSEY BOYS will be nominated in 2015?
