I'm still confused after they pronounced La La Land as winner :)
I fixed this mistake.

Hoekkie,

Please capitalized "With" in the title of your list.

Please change:
Musicals with an Oscar for Best Picture

To:
Musicals With an Oscar for Best Picture

Thanks, I've made the correction.
I looked for titles and I saw that "Keeping Up with the Joneses (2016)" is with a small 'w'.
So I thought it was good this way.

Hoekkie,

Thanks of updating the title.
The IMDb Editors suggested this web app. It's useful for title capitalization.
http://titlecapitalization.com/
Select the first option:
Capitalize words with four or more letters (AP style)

It is true, however, that IMDb's database guidelines require "with" and "from" to be uncapitalised in film titles. Different departments, I guess.

Personally I think Amadeus is a movie about musicians, not a musical. You don't see anyone bursting into song or dancing outside the actual stage(s).

"no less than" is superfluous. It should be removed.

Going My Way isn't a musical. It's a movie with a few songs. There is a difference.

I would not consider GOING MY WAY to be a musical.
