    Not a fan of Russel Crowe’s singing :(

  • James

    Russell Crowe did a good job. Everyone did good.

  • Joe Pic

    Russel Crowe sang like crap in the movie…and here as well. Samantha Barks still got zero credit…even on her own image in the gallery. Comon…give the Broadway star some credit!!

  • Sj

    So Russell is no Hugh Jackman in the singing department. Enough already. He gave a fine performance and sang the part of Javert much like it was done on Broadway. With restraint. Must we always criticize. Les Miz was a wonderful movie and Russell Crowe played his part well enough to please the director and many fans. Let it go already.

  • julie

    Yes we must criticize. Russell isn’t made for musicals. PERIOD. He is a good actor but don’t push him to do romantic comedies and don’t try to make him sing. Seriously, why is everyone saying “he was ok, leave him be”? He wasn’t. End of story. The man is oscar-worthy from other departments but this isn’t one of them. I agree about Samantha Banks getting credit. Does she have the smallest waist ever, btw?
    Also, Jennifer Hudson won her oscar for singing, not for acting. Mighty fine singer. Not actress.
    Catherine looks mighty fine for her age!!!
    All hail Andrew Lloyd Weber!

    My favourite character was Javert in the movie. I really love Russell Crowe as Javert. I don’t know why you are saying that he doesn’t have a good voice, or he has bad voice… I think his voice is PERFECT. I relly like ir, because it is special and deep, and beautiful. And for a Javert, it is more than perfect. So please don’t judge him like that, because he didn’t do anything wrong.
    Les Miserables is an amazing movie I think it should have got more Oscars, but it is OK.

  • Laura


  • Laura

    P.S.: I think Russell Crowe has better and more special voice than Hugh Jackman or Eddie Redmayne or Aaron Tveit. If you saw the film you can hear that, Mr. Crowe’s voice is very-very strong and amazing.

  • Philipp

    I thought Russell Crowe was bad as Javert, emotionally his performance was a mess. He came across as totally bland which is a shame because Javert is such a complex character, Crowe just made him utterly unlikable.

  • Philipp

    @Laura: Umm no. It was annoying up to the point of sheer agony. Just no.

  • fid


    Agreed! I think all of the hate for Russell Crowe is from all the critics getting into peoples heads. He plays a really good Javert.

  • fid

    Finally purchased the soundtrack yesterday and am really baffled by everyone saying Russell Crowe is horrible. He’s quite good in “Javert’s Suicide”.

    Also, if you listen to stage performances Javert never sounds pitch perfect, I think that’s the point. It’s not supposed to be a bunch of people with voices that sound produced, it should be about the rawness and emotion of it since Les Mis is chalked full of emotion.

    I really enjoyed the movie and this performance.

  • Lily

    i think aaron shines.
    so young ,so handsom.

  • ChristyA

    The Les Mis section was terrible. Hugh Grant does a great job, but Suddenly is an awful, dull song, and as for One Day More, it was butchered. Fantine does not belong in that song, no matter who plays her, and the rest of it sounded like a skipping CD it was so chopped up. A shame, becaus everyone was doing their best and Russell Crowe, for all I’m not a fan, sounded better than when he did that bit in the film.

  • Shannon

    @ChristyA: Hugh Grant was not in this performance nor was he in the movie. They had to showcase everyone regardless and I thought this was a wonderful performance. Every member of the Les Mis cast was teriffic.

  • eponine

    Okay, so why don’t you go and play Javert im sure you could all do rubbish jobs, These people are actors not singers, if we wanted an excellent singing production (which it was btw), we can just go to Broadway or the West End. I though Russell Crowe was just as good as the rest of the cast

  • Gmaninhollywood

    All that fashion fuss on the #oscars #red carpet. So comfortable with my red jumper from my mum’s haute couture.

  • hawehaveitnow

    agree. give Russell crowe credit. He did a fine job.

  • cathi

    @Joe Pic:

    to all the negative comments articulated so blatant, cold and shallow. look at yourself. what do you do that’s so perfect.? they are humble and do their best and thus: they SHINE!!

  • setra

    I loved seeing the cast of Les Miserables perform this medley of songs from the movie. I thought they did wonderfully and I was also happy to see Anne Hathaway win the award for Best Supporting Actress. I was at work at DISH last night when the Academy Awards were on so I recorded it on my DVR. I set up my DISH Hopper with the PrimeTime Anytime feature to record all primetime shows that came on ABC last night. This way I made sure not to miss the red carpet events or the ceremony.

  • Emily

    I personally liked Russell in Les Mis… he’s not the best singer, true, but I found Amanda Seyfreid’s voice MUCH more irritating than his. That forced vibrato in her voice was just obnoxious >.<
    Crowe did a good job as Javert, considering that he's not professionally trained as a singer, I still got chills when he sang "Javert's Suicide". Everyone else in the cast did well also, especially Samantha Banks– she was AMAZING as Fantine <3

    Well, I contributed in his salary of millions of dollars.
    I can expect more from a person who earns such money than from myself..

    I love Aaron. I can’t stop watching him strut onto the stage like that :)

    Can someone PAH-LEASE tell me who designed Hugh Jackman’s sharp blazer! Now that right there is COLD! I’ve been looking for a blazer with that design for the longest!

  • ADAM M

    @Oscar Waters:

    Love that blazer, it looks amazing! I’d love to know who designed it.

  • Daniel

    Although I liked all the actors in the movie, I thought Crowe did a great job! I agree he doesn’t have the vocal power of those who played Javert in the play, but still, he was the best part of the movie. I thought he played Javert better than any before him. He was awesome in Javert’s Suicide!

  • http://@jayhung101 Jennifer

    Samantha Barks and Aaron Tevit are the one’s who stood out to me.Their voices were powerful and beautiful.On the plus side they are not only talented.They are pretty good looking!I gotta say!They both looked “HOT” at the Oscars and performing that night.

  • sally

    @jennifer. hugh, anne, eddie, and amanda were pretty good too. samantha barks’ number is a belting number. that is why she was given the opportunity to belt.

  • thetis


    Boy I can deal with ignorance but not with pretentious ignorance. First of all Javert is not really a sung role it’s a metered speaking part except for a few notes. Secondly Jennifer Hudson won for acting – why? (since you seem to need an education) – because her role first of all the role was not all singing and second of all “I Am Telling You” is a song that must be acted in order to be appreciated like “I Dreamed a Dreamed ” in Les M they both convey a state of mind and emotion sprinkled with desperation if someone just stands there and sings the without conveying an emotional connection the song dies. Try pontificating over a subject you know something about.

  • Liz

    @James: everyone did WELL… but wow this was amazing! i just dont like russell crow…..

  • applause

    These are the Oscars – not the stage show or the movie itself. The musical number fitted the occasion and need not have been exactly how it was onstage or onscreen. It featured all the major stars and even a chorus which came from the movie and the various stage productions from the UK and the USA! A testament on the universal appeal of this musical and its literary pedigree ( book of Victor Hugo).

    Hugh and the rest gave great performances – and you can see how impressed the audience were ( Did you see Day-Lewis, TLJones and Steven Spielberg clapping vigorously for their competition?!), The interlude carried the themes of the musical ( the French tricolor, the revolutionary fervor, the leadership of Valjean and the contretemps from Javert, the loneliness of Fantine’s life, the romantic triangle of Cosette, Marius and Eponine, and even the everpresent villainous Thenardiers! ) What more can you ask for in a 3 minute presentation ( or less)!

    I say – More power to Les Miserables! The film will be a classic in years to come, just as the stage musical has become beloved in over 3 decades!

  • lilywhite

    hell yeah!

  • Sandra

    @julie: I don’t agree with you. In terms of Russell’s performance, I have never been a fan of his, but I believe he carried the song in tone and tempo and got the verses right – no stuff ups – so that is all you can expect from an actor turned singer. It was strong enough and loud enough to be heard. I also don’t agree about Jennifer Hudson – yikes, she’s a screamer. I hated her performance at the Oscars. I know she was well received there, but that must be an American thing. I just wanted her to get off stage .. quickly! Poor girl, I have nothing against her personally, just didn’t like her rendition of that song.

  • Paul Rogers

    You know what? If people would stop listening to crictics and get off the hater bandwagon and listen with their own ears, they will notice that Russel Crowe did a great job. I bet 99% of people hating on him could not carry a tune in a wheelbarrow. And no, I am not a RC fan, in fact I don’t like celeb people who are abusive to others in real life, HOWEVER, I’ll give someone props when they do well. Haters should make like a window and SHUT IT!
