  • Musical film: A movie containing musical numbers. Some musical films exist primarily as showcases for the songs, while others use the musical interludes to advance the movie's plot. In Western countries the popularity of such films waned towards the end of the 20th century, as a result of which the Academy Awards no longer offer an award for the best musical film.
