Hollywood's 10 Favorite Music Films: 'Wizard of Oz,' 'Almost Famous,' 'Lion King' & More
There are plenty of great films and almost just as many lists of great films. So The Hollywood Reporter set out to do one better -- for the July 4 issue, they surveyed over two thousand distinguished members of the movie industry for the ultimate insiders list. What resulted is Hollywood's 100 Favorite Films, chosen by studio chiefs, Oscar winners and TV royalty.
Included in the list are some legendary soundtracks, musical performances and even a film about the music writing business. To satisfy its musical curiosity, Billboard has compiled the top 10 music-related films from Hollywood's list.
To see what films made the all-purpose top 100, check out the Hollywood Reporter's complete list. And in case you were wondering, some of the most notable voters included Fox chief Jim Gianopulos, Disney’s Alan Horn, director Gary Ross, producer Frank Marshall, Warners’ Sue Kroll, agent Robert Newman, attorney John Burke and filmmaker John Singleton.
