Poll: Which Best Picture Oscar Nominee Would Be Best and Worst On Broadway?

Which of the ten movies nominated this year for the Best Picture Oscar would make the best play? The worst play? The best musical?

I put this to a poll, below, now that I’ve seen all ten, and weighed in on the question. (Could Avatar work on Broadway? The Fabelmans? 10 Best Picture Oscar Nominees as viewed by a theater critic) I’ve never done this before; I don’t think I’ve ever even seen all best picture nominees before the Oscars broadcast (which this year is March 12th), even when there were only five. But I was lured one by one to see the eight of the films that are currently available online, after which I felt compelled to embark on rare trips to an actual movie theater to see the remaining two. I’m betting other theater lovers have done something similar.
