Pretty Oscar Artwork & Ceremony News

28 January 2015 5:00 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Manuel here. One of my favorite thing about this year’s Oscar nominations was the beautiful artwork that adorned the screen as J.J. Abrams, Alfonso Cuarón, Chris Pine and Cheryl Boone Isaacs read out names like Marion Cotillard, Laura Dern and Dan Gilroy though sadly not Ava DuVernay’s nor David Oyelowo’s (might they have a better chance with their next collaboration, that Katrina murder mystery film?)

 As it turns out, the Academy is really upping its game when it comes to art you wish you could hang in your living room. Last year’s ceremony poster was quite the snooze-fest and I have to admit, other than that fantastic Olly Moss’s gorgeous poster from 2012, AMPAS’ artwork as of late has been rather dull. You have to go back to 2007 to find my other recent favorite poster (those quotes!). While the official poster for this year’s Neil Patrick Harris »

At Least One 2015 Oscar Musical Number Is Going To Be Awesome

27 January 2015 2:55 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Part of the what makes the Oscars ceremony so spectacular are the elaborate musical numbers. And if Neil Patrick Harris has anything to do with it, it won.t simply be something as misogynistic or toilet humor-y as Seth MacFarlane's "We Saw Your Boobs." He.ll be sure to add some of his class and Broadway flair to the mix. However, a new development has emerged that will make you even more excited to see the multi-talented, Tony-winning, Golden Globe-nominated actor hit the stage. Have you ever heard the names Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez? No? It.s ok. They only wrote one of the catchiest songs of all time - the song you and your Disney-loving kids have been humming to yourselves since 2013. They.re only the magical duo who made us all want to "Let It Go." The Academy announced this morning that the married duo who »
