‘Les Mis’ Fans Freak Out on Twitter Over Oscar Noms

Les Mis Twitter Noms
Universal Pictures

Hey, did you hear about the Oscar nominations? We’re guessing Ben Affleck isn’t the only one crying — hordes of musical theater fans are losing it too. Who would have thought that people whose idea of entertainment is to be whipped into an emotional frenzy through overwrought song and dance would flip out when their genre of choice gets not one, but eight nominations (even though that wasn’t enough for some of them). Some of them ( a lot, actually) couldn’t contain themselves and had to direct some of their boundless enthusiasm towards Twitter. Here’s what’s they’re saying.

I think that in Hell it’s a bunch of normal people pronouncing Les Misérables wrong.


It annoys me so much when people mispronounce Les Misérables.


Glad “Les Miserables” got so many Oscar nominations. I went through a lot of tissues watching that movie! #masturbationjoke


To love another person is to see the face of God #lesmis #obsessed
