Oscar Scandals: Mary Poppins Returns Song Will NOT Be Performed at Oscar Telecast

Lin-Manuel Miranda, still best known for the Broadway show Hamilton, and now appearing in the Oscar nominated Mary Poppins Returns, has called the news of a mostly performance-less Oscars ceremony “disappointing.”

As noted before, only two of this year’s five-Oscar nominated songs may be performed live at the Academy Awards show on February 24.

Kendrick Lamar and SZA’s “All the Stars” from “Black Panther” and Lady Gaga’s “Shallow” from “A Star Is Born” were chosen for performances on the telecast.

“The first time I stayed up to watch the Oscars, it was because I LOVED The Little Mermaid & they were going to sing songs from the movie I loved on The Oscars,” the “Mary Poppins Returns” star tweeted. “If true, and Poppins’ song won’t be performed, truly disappointing. Hostless AND music-less? To quote Kendrick: Damn.”
