Graceful stage actor who stood out in Doctor Who on TV and the film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

In a long and distinguished career, the actor Aubrey Woods, who has died aged 85, covered the waterfront, from West End revues and musicals to TV series and films, most notably, perhaps, singing The Candy Man in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971), starring Gene Wilder, and playing the Controller in the Day of the Daleks storyline in Doctor Who (1972).

Tall and well-favoured in grace and authority on the stage, he played Fagin in the musical Oliver! for three years, succeeding Ron Moody in the original 1960 production. He was equally in demand on BBC radio, writing and appearing in many plays, including his own adaptations of the Mapp and Lucia novels by Ef Benson (he was a vice-president of the Ef Benson society).

Les Miserables Blu-ray Review

15 March 2013 7:53 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Les Miserables is a movie that transcends genre. It's more than a drama; it's more than a musical.

It is, quite simply, an experience.

The plot, as anyone acquainted with either the long-running stage musical or the Victor Hugo classic on which it is based can attest, is spread out across a long canvas. In 1816, Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman) is paroled after serving a 19-year sentence for stealing a loaf of bread.

Despite warnings from prison guard Javert (Russell Crowe), Valjean breaks his lifelong parole in search of a higher redemption, eventually becoming mayor of a small town in France where he runs a textiles factory.

One of his employees, Fantine (Anne Hathaway) is fired from the factory when it is discovered she is supporting a daughter, Cosette, who was born out of wedlock. Valjean is ignorant of due to the arrival of his town's new chief of police, Javert. »

Oscars 2013: And the winners of the 85th Academy Awards are...

26 February 2013 2:12 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last night the stars gathered at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California for the biggest night in the film calendar as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences presented the 85th Academy Awards. Going into the ceremony, it was Steven Spielberg's Lincoln which led the field with 12 nominations, but the big winner on the night was Ben Affleck's Argo, which claimed the coveted Best Picture award, as well as Best Film Editing and Best Adapted Screenplay.

With Affleck out of consideration for Best Director, it was Ang Lee who took home that award, with Life of Pi going on to claim a further three Oscars (the most of any film this year) - Best Music (Original Score), Best Cinematography and Best Visual Effects. As expected, Daniel Day-Lewis claimed Best Actor for his role in Lincoln (which also claimed Best Production Design), becoming the first person in history »

Oscars 2013 Live: Winners & Losers Listed In Full

24 February 2013 9:02 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

This evening’s Oscar ceremony is now over, and with the dust settling on the biggest awards ceremony of the entire year, and the winners and losers celebrating and commiserating together, we’ve put together a full list of the winners (as well as the beaten nominees) for this year’s awards.

Jennifer Lawrence and Jessica Chastain nailed the red carpet, apparently, and Sandra Bullock did wonderful things with a diamond hair-clip, while Bradley Cooper and Chris Pine both proved that beards are very much the hot thing right now. But the big events were yet to happen inside the La venue, as the audience sat ready to receive host Seth MacFarlane, and his inevitably cutting humour.

For the most part, MacFarlane was reserved, though a few barbs did land before the end of the night. He played his part also in the excellent musical staging throughout the ceremony, whose highlights featured Shirley Bassey, »

Oscars 2013: Adele wins Best Original Song for 'Skyfall'

24 February 2013 8:39 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Just like Anne Hathaway winning Best Supporting Actress at the 85th Academy Awards, Adele was a shoe-in for Best Original Song. She still seemed surprised to win when she took the stage alongside Paul Epworth, though.

"Thank you so much. This is amazing," she said, coming close to tears as she listed off the many people she had to thank. "And my man, I love you, baby."

Adele left time for Epworth to give his thanks as well, but she couldn't resist tossing in a nod to all the other prestigious actors, directors and even songwriters in the Dolby Theatre there with them. "You're all amazing as well," she said as a farewell.

Also nominated for Best Song were J. Ralph for "Before My Time" from "Chasing Ice," Walter Murphy and Seth MacFarlane for "Everybody Needs a Best Friend" from "Ted," Mychael Danna and Bombay Jayashri from "Life of Pi" and Claude-Michel Schonberg, »

Oscars 2013: how politics won the Academy's votes

24 February 2013 3:58 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

From the abolition of slavery to the 'war on terror', this year's Academy Awards are dominated by heavyweight political films

Follow our live coverage of the Oscars 2013 red carpet

Early in 1927, Louis B Mayer, the head of MGM studios and soon to be the highest-paid executive in the world, met a handful of fellow conservative thinkers to create an elite Hollywood organisation with the grandiose title of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

The aim was to deter the development of unions, or at least to control and arbitrate their operations. The academy, and the awards set up the following year as an expression of the good taste of its members (of whom there are now 6,000), began in politics and continue to be influenced by it.

Twenty years later, MGM went for three years without winning an Oscar and Mayer was fired by the company's ultimate boss in »

23 February 2013 7:50 AM, PST | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

Sorry, Anne Hathaway. It’s Sally Field’s turn to shine again! Read on for all my Oscar predictions for the Feb. 24 awards ceremony.

Anne Hathaway may be the frontrunner for Best Actress In A Supporting Role at the Feb. 24 Oscars, but I sense an upset coming our way. My girl Sally Field is nominated as well and I like her, I really like her! So does all of Hollywood — Sally won an Oscar both times she was nominated in the past. Plus, she’s a legend! Mama Nora deserves the win for her amazing performance in Lincoln. Furthermore, find out who else I think will take home an Academy Award this year!

My Oscar Predictions:

Best Actor In A Leading Role:

Bradley Cooper in Silver Linings Playbook

Daniel Day-Lewis in Lincoln

Hugh Jackman in Les Misérables

Denzel Washington in Flight

Who Will Win: Daniel Day-Lewis. »

22 February 2013 10:45 AM, PST | Filmology | See recent Filmology news »

The Oscars are almost here! The 85th Academy Awards is set to air this Sunday, Feb. 24., with host Seth MacFarlane. The award season has been very generous to films such as Argo and Silver Linings Playbook, but as many know by now, you can never quite be certain about who will win once the opening monologue begins. Who will take home Best Picture? Actor and Actress in a Leading Role? And what about Directing? We are breaking down the top 10 categories from the evening on who should win and who probably will.
