Just like black actresses Cicely Tyson, Diahann Carroll, Angela Bassett, Alfre Woodard and even Viola Davis -- to name a few -- Rita Moreno got an Oscar nomination and then had to turn to television because Hollywood had no quality script offers after she'd made Oscar history.
ENCHANTED got three Oscar nominations. "That's How You Know" was a nominee for Best Song. When the number was performed live on the 2008 Oscars telecast by Kristin Chenoweth, Harvey Evans was in the number live repeating his ENCHANTED movie role.
In my long TV career as an entertainment reporter, I've never been assigned Red Carpet Oscar coverage nor have I been asked to be on a network morning TV news program the morning after to talk about the awards. If I had been on GOOD MORNING AMERICA the morning after ABC's Oscar telecast, I would have definitely mentioned that Harvey Evans, one of the dancers in WEST SIDE STORY, Oscar winner for Best Picture of 1961, had been onstage the night before dancing to a 2007 movie tune that got an Oscar nomination for Best Song. He'd danced to "That's How You Know" in Disney's ENCHANTED.
I think that's a great story. I am so lucky to have met Rita Moreno and Harvey Evans of WEST SIDE STORY.
