"Dreamgirls": the musical of the year.

Based on the Broadway musical that won several prizes and depicting the stormy 60's and 70's, “Dreamgirls“ describes the rise of a women trio - Effie (Jennifer Hudson), Deena (Beyonce Knowles) and Lorrell (Anika Noni Rose) – that form a promising music group called The Dreamettes.

They are discovered in a talent show by the ambitious manager Curtis Taylor Jr. (Jamie Foxx), who uses his unscrupulous tactics to promote them from backup singers of James "Thunder" Early (Eddie Murphy), to stars by their own. But the spotlights begins to focus on the more attractive Deena, leading to the replacement of the less "comercial" but extremely talented lead singer Effie. And although The Dreams achieve international stardom, they soon realise that the price to pay for their fame and fortune can be much higher than they imagined...

With 8 nominations (Actor in a Supporting Role, Actress in a Supporting Role, Art Direction, Costume Design, Sound Mixing and three Musics Written for Motion Pictures - Original Song), "Dreamgirls" is the most nominated movie of the 2007 Oscar edition
