Oscars: “Scary” Number of Campaign Events Set for Friday the 13th

10 November 2015 5:17 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

The Hollywood Reporter

In a year without a clear frontrunner, the distributors of an unusually big number of films feel that awards recognition is within their reach — and they aren’t leaving anything on the table when it comes to promotional opportunities.

Already this season, the pre-Thanksgiving flurry of Q&As, lunches, dinners and cocktail parties has hit a fever pitch. Among the hotter invites: a screening of the doc short The Tuskegee Airmen: Sacrifice and Triumph at the home of Lionel Richie on Oct. 5 (it still was left off the Academy’s shortlist on Oct. 26); a party for Brett Morgen‘s doc feature Cobain: Montage of Heck at Robert Evans‘ home Nov. 5; and a hangout at Adam Levine‘s house for The End of the Tour‘s Jason Segel on Nov. 8. The list goes on.

Watch Ellen, Adele's Missed Connection in 'Hello' Spoof

30 October 2015 6:38 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Ellen DeGeneres claims she's the inspiration for Adele's latest single "Hello" and proves it during a hilarious spoof of the song and its melancholy video.

"A lot of people don't realize her new song is based on a conversation that we had," the host begins before cutting to shots of the Adele video and a sepia-toned DeGeneres answering an even older and clunkier phone than the flip-phone Adele uses in her clip. Over the course of the phone call, the comedian can't understand what Adele is saying because of the »

James Corden and Billy Eichner Parody Adele's "Hello" in "A Lonely Halloween"

30 October 2015 5:48 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Adele's "Hello" might be a record-breaking hit, but there was no stopping the Vines and parodies that quickly followed after the music video was released. While some might say Lionel Richie's response was the best, we have to give major kudos to James Corden and Billy Eichner for their parody, "A Lonely Halloween." The Late Late Show host and the Billy on the Street host got together Thursday to premiere their music video for their sad song. Having gone trick-or-treating together for years, Corden called Eichner to see if he wanted to participate in their annual tradition. Sadly, Eichner told him no. "I just thought it was something that we'd always do together," Corden »

Ellen DeGeneres Spoofs Herself Into Adele’s Music Video For ‘Hello’ (Video)

29 October 2015 3:22 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

A phone call between Ellen DeGeneres and Adele actually inspired the singer’s new song, “Hello,” according to the daytime host. And she has the video to prove it. DeGeneres spoofed her way into a mashup of Adele’s popular clip, which included a back-and-forth exchange of DeGeneres telling Adele she can’t hear her, and that she should hurry up. “It might be easier to hear you if you stop playing that piano,” DeGeneres said. “Seriously, speed it up. I’m kind of in a hurry. Just get to the point.” See Video: Adele Meets Lionel Richie in Inevitable »

Lionel Richie Reacts to Adele's "Hello," Says He Will "Loan" It to Her

29 October 2015 12:52 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Lionel Richie has an epic sense of humor. When Adele released her now-hit single, "Hello," people immediately started to liken it to Richie's famous tune of the same name. With the Internet insanely creative these days, obviously people took the opportunity to turn her music video and song into funny Vines. But Richie was tickled by one creation in particular: a mashup of his video and hers. Nicole Richie's father Instagrammed the clip that splices similar footage together. In it he sings to Adele and asks, "Is it me you're looking for?" Adele abruptly hangs up. He also shared a split pic of the two of them on the phone and captioned it, "Hello @adele is it me you're looking »

Adele Meets Lionel Richie in Inevitable ‘Hello’ Mashup (Video)

23 October 2015 4:02 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Adele, say hello to Lionel Richie. Lionel Richie, say hello to Adele. In a turn of events that’s been inevitable since Thursday, when Adele dropped the new video for her song “Hello,” the Internet has gifted us with a mashup of the new clip and the iconic video for the 1984 Lionel Richie smash of the same title. Predictably, the mashup revolves around a phone conversation between Adele and Richie, which ends up being all too brief because — again predictably — Adele hangs up the phone on him.

23 October 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

You knew this was coming. Adele released her first single in three years this week, and the intro is eerily similar to Lionel Richie's 1983 hit, also titled "Hello." Faster than you can say "this would make a great mashup," a great mashup has been made. The YouTube channel BlendTV created a very short and very funny video combining the two songs. Watch it above; it will take 11 seconds of your time, and it's totally worth it. »

Adele Is Not Here for Lionel Richie in This Video Mash-Up

23 October 2015 10:04 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

After Adele released the thundering ode to screening student-loan calls, we could only think of how glorious a mash-up with Lionel Richie's 1984 single "Hello" would be. That song has had over 30 years to reign supreme as the ultimate phone-call anthem, but now Adele has entered the ring. Which song is better? We don't really have to describe, but this fantastic video from Blend TV is already taking sides.Adele will collect your clay head now, Lionel Richie. »

Adele Loves, Loses and Makes a Ton of Phone Calls in Music Video for ‘Hello’ (Video)

23 October 2015 7:07 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

There’s an awful lot of setup to Adele’s new music video “Hello” — but when one finally gets to the vocals, they’re as powerful as ever. The song itself has essentially the exact same note kickoff as the chorus of Lionel Richie’s 1983 tune of the same name. The newer ditty becomes very different from there: Adele belts out lyrics of a tragic breakup, and the video follows suit in sepia tone. The video for Adele’s “Hello” contains about as much phone chatter as the title would suggest. There’s even a payphone booth out in the middle of the woods — which. »

Jimmy Fallon & Lionel Richie Perform Parody of 1984 "Hello" Video With That Creepy Bust—Watch!

19 September 2015 1:25 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Jimmy Fallon wants to tell you so creepy Lionel Richie's 1984 "Hello" music video was. Because it was. It was super, super creepy. The iconic clip for the haunting ballad featured a woman playing the singer's blind love interest, who sculpts a bust of what she imagines his face to look like out of clay. The result: It looks nothing like Richie. It just looks creepy. Creepy like the rest of the video, which shows Richie basically stalking her. "Oh, it's wonderful," Richie tells her. Liar!! "This is how I see you," she replies. On Friday's episode of NBC's The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, a day before the host's 41st »

Jimmy Fallon had fun with some music video lore Friday as The Tonight Show host teamed with Lionel Richie to show the creation of the creepy Richie bust seen in the "Hello" music video. That memorable 1984 video concludes with Richie's blind love interest sculpting a clay bust of the singer's face, despite not knowing what he looks like. In the ensuing decades, the ending has been routinely mocked for how little the bust resembles Richie, something Richie himself later noted in an interview with Rolling Stone.
