This year’s Academy Awards are just around the corner! Leading up to the big night, Broadway.com asked readers which Oscar nominee they would most like to see make his or her Broadway debut. The results are in, and three of Hollywood's favorite leading ladies (who are all previous Oscar nominees!) were among readers’ picks. Take a look at the results below!
1. Anne Hathaway - 31%
Let's be honest: no surprise here! Anne Hathaway received an Oscar nomination for her gut-wrenching portrayal of the doomed Fantine in Les Misérables. Her frozen-faced, tear-drenched and altogether moving rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream" has secured her as an Oscar frontrunner. She's already won the Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and BAFTA awards for her performance—and fans want to see her bring that same passion to the boards of Broadway! No stranger to the stage, Hathaway has appeared in Shakespeare in the Park and even tackled the tunes of Cabaret last fall at Joe's Pub.
2. Jennifer Lawrence - 16%
Jennifer Lawrence may have started out doing commercials for the MTV reality series My Super Sweet 16, but over the last few years she has proved to be one of the great young actresses working today. The Hunger Games star received her second Oscar nomination for playing the troubled young widow Tiffany Maxwell in Silver Linings Playbook. She even had to take dance lessons for the role, in which she shows some fancy footwork with hunky co-star Bradley Cooper. J-Law, put those ballroom lessons to further use on a Broadway stage, please!
3. Amy Adams - 15%
Amy Adams received her fourth Oscar nomination this year for her dramatic turn in the film The Master as Peggy Dodd, the dedicated wife and follower of Philip Seymour Hoffman's charismatic religious leader. The actress won Broadway fans' hearts when she starred as the singing, dancing and dress-making Giselle in Disney's Enchanted. Though Adams has never been on the Great White Way, she made her New York stage debut last year in the Public Theater's outdoor production of Into the Woods.
