Universal Pictures is officially wiping its paws of “Cats,” as the studio has reportedly removed the musical from its “For Your Consideration” page that lists the Oscar-qualifying films as well as their screening dates in a number of cities – this according to Variety.
An industry insider told the outlet on Thursday that the whimsical flop is also absent from being featured on the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ streaming site, where Academy members can view the golden statue contenders.
“Cats” has been the subject of numerous reports and reviews slamming the film. Many are simply confused by so much that they can’t help but to laugh at the bizarre adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical.
