Getting excited about "Nine"

Earlier this year Nine was my most eagerly awaited movie. I love and follow the Oscars religiously and the stars of this movie have 20 nominations and 7 Oscars among them. They are actors I loved and admired and rooted for : Daniel Day Lewis, Nicole Kidman, Sophia Loren, Penelope Cruz, and Marion Cotillard. There is also Fergie and the queen of bad rom-coms and movie star spawn Kate Hudson. No to mention I love musicals. Particularly modern ones. I've enjoyed the movie versions of "Dreamgirls", "Hairspray", "Chicago" and even the uneven "Rent". However my enthusiasm cooled off. Maybe because the movie was postponed to December making the wait even longer. Maybe I just could not see Day Lewis as a song and dance man. Maybe "A Single Man" and "The Lovely Bones" trailers just looked better. Maybe I don't think it will surpass "Precious" and "An Education", 2 movies that had superlative performances that could quench my thirst for "Oscar" bait.

Then this rehearsal footage was released. Check it out below. I am getting excited again.

1) why is Fergie still trying to act? 2) LOve Penelope Cruz andf think she is the best part of thsi movie. 3) since i didn't know much about the broadway hit, the vague commercials aren't giving me enough information but i am still somewhat intrigued. 4)Nicole Kidman and kate Hudson are so not sexy and look uncomfortable even trying to be.
