* MisaimedFandom: According to the comments section of Masterworks Broadway's [=YouTube=] upload of "A Brand New Day", some of UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump's supporters listened to the song again after he won the 2016 Presidential Election...even though several of the ''Wiz'' cast and crew members hate Trump, to the extent that after producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron moved on to NBC's ''Theatre/{{Hairspray}}'', they expressed hope in an interview that UsefulNotes/HillaryRodhamClinton would win the Election instead.

* UnfortunateImplications: It's has pointed out by more than a few people that the decision to turn the bright and colorful land of Oz into a filthy, demilitarized ghetto for the African American adaptation of the classic story is very questionable to say the least.

* GrowingTheBeard: For NBC's attempts to bring back the live TV musical. After its previous productions of ''The Sound of Music'' and ''Peter Pan'' were largely seen as hot messes buoyed by the occasional good performance, ''The Wiz'' got strong reviews just in time for other networks to try the concept out. After Creator/{{Fox}}'s January 2016 telecast of a new ''Film/{{Grease}}'' also earned a positive reception, ''The Wiz'' might very well mark a GenreTurningPoint for live TV musicals.

* ChewingTheScenery: Diana Ross portrays Dorothy as an overwrought wreck who will go into hysterics at the drop of a hat.



* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: It's terribly obvious how far out of his comfort zone Sidney Lumet was, showing no idea of how to stage musical numbers despite the songs themselves still being pretty good. The worst offender is filming "Ease on Down the Road" from ''behind'' the actors.

* AwardSnub: Despite positive reviews, the telecast failed to earn an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Special Class Program. It also failed to break the streak of NBC musicals earning zero Emmy nominations for acting. Instead, it had to settle for six technical nominations - before winning for Outstanding Costumes For A Variety, Nonfiction Or Reality Program.
