CHICAGO
February 26, 2013  | By David Bianculli

Style, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
If you watched the Oscars Sunday, you saw the live recreation of one musical number from this 2002 film musical. Now revisit the whole thing – and compare and contrast with Les Miserables, the most recent big-screen, big-budget musical. Chicago is the better film, and the Academy agreed, honoring it as Best Picture. It won several other Oscars as well, including Best Supporting Actress, an award won by Les Miserables as well – the latter by Anne Hathaway, the former by Catherine Zeta-Jones (pictured). And both the 2013 Oscars telecast and the 2002 Chicago, by the way, were produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.
