AU: The 86th Academy Awards - Best Picture Nominee: Wicked
There hasn’t been a musical on-screen adaptation with quite just as much buzz since Chicago - and Wicked's Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth certainly know how to handle the spotlight.
"It’s just been tremendous amount of fun," Chenoweth says about making of the box-office hit. "When we did Wicked on Broadway ten years ago, we couldn’t even imagine half the things the CGI department’s achieved for the film - I mean, just look at my bubble!"
Ever so ‘bubbly’ Chenoweth laughs with her co-lead, Idina Menzel, wearing Vera Wang’s green gown just as good as she wears the green make up on screen, when Menzel wickedly adds: “Well, I guess ten years ago they also wouldn’t need all that CGI to make us look like teenagers either!”
Wicked is nominated in all together six categories this year, including Best Picture, Best Actress in a Leading Role and Best Adapted Screenplay.

'You don't think you're ever gonna meet Idina Menzel, and I got to sing that for her. Oh my god, she's so inspirational. To have feedback from someone like her is incredible. And she thinks I'm good and that's amazing!'
