Gentleman’s Guide won for best musical, book of a musical, director and costume design.

How I Met Your Mother actor Neil Patrick Harris, who has previously been a favorite Tony host, picked up his first award – best lead actor in a musical – for starring in Hedwig and the Angry Inch.

Tony Awards 2014: Who will win?

3 June 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Will Neil Patrick Harris claim his first Tony Award this Sunday for his gender-bending turn in the musical revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch? Probably. Will fellow multiple-Emmy winner Bryan Cranston win for playing Lyndon B. Johnson in the biodrama All the Way? Count on it. But will it be the Carole King biomusical Beautiful or the murderously funny A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder that earns top honors as the Best New Musical of the Broadway season?

On that point, as on many other tight races in this year’s Tony contest, EW critics Melissa Rose Bernardo and Thom Geier are divided. »

'Gentleman's Guide', Neil Patrick Harris' 'Hedwig' lead nominations for the 2014 Tony Awards

29 April 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Fully realizing its underdog appeal, the cheeky musical A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder slayed the competition this morning with a whopping 10 Tony nominations, including nods for both of its tireless leading men, Jefferson Mays and Bryce Pinkham. Neil Patrick Harris’ return to Broadway after a decade yielded him his first-ever Tony nomination for the celebrated revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, which netted an impressive eight nods. (Had it been eligible as a new musical, Hedwig probably would have easily tied Guide, as score and book would have been slam dunks). Trailing these shows with seven »

Woody Allen, Placido Domingo, Team for Madrid’s ‘Gianni Schicchi’

18 February 2014 2:29 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid – Woody Allen will revive his 2008 Los Angeles Opera production of “Gianni Schicchi,” with Placido Domingo in the title role, for Madrid’s Teatro Real.

A just-over an-hour comedic opera, Allen’s version of Giacomo Puccini’s “Gianni Schicchi” will run from June 30 through July 12, 2015 as part of a double bill with Enrique Granados’ “Goyescas.”

Allen is billed as the revival’s stage director. Musical director is Giulano Carell, set and costume designer Santo Loquasto, lighting designer Mark Jonathan.

The 2008 Los Angeles Opera’s “Gianni Schicchi” marked the first time Allen directed an opera. Just how actively he will be involved in the Madrid revival is another question.

original production enjoys a lot of leeway between dispatching assistants to oversee the revival and attending final rehearsals, or being present for more or the whole of the staging process.

Allen always played down his operatic expertise: “I have absolutely no idea what I am doing, »

Adg Awards 'Her', 'Gatsby' & 'Gravity', USC Scripters to '12 Years a Slave'

10 February 2014 11:32 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Over the weekend the Art Directors Guild (Adg) handed out their crop of awards for Best Production Design in Period, Contemporary and Fantasy film and the winners in their respective categories were Catherine Martin for The Great Gatsby, K.K. Barrett for Her and Andy Nicholson for Gravity. All three winners are nominated for an Oscar (see the full list of nominees here) and after these results I've updated my predictions from 12 Years a Slave to Gatsby. See those predictions here. Speaking of 12 Years a Slave, the USC Scripters Award was also handed out over the weekend and screenwriter John Ridley joined family members of nineteenth-century author Solomon Northup to receive the 26th-annual USC Libraries Scripter Award for his adaptation of Northup's memoir. "Until I read Solomon's memoir, I didn't know what being a writer was all about," Ridley said in his acceptance speech. "The way that Solomon wrote, the clarity with which he wrote, »

Art Directors Guild And Costume Designers Guild Reveal Their Nominees

9 January 2014 11:52 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Art Directors Guild and the Costume Designers Guild have become the latest groups to announce their nominees for 2013. They may not be considered as big or as important as the Producers Guild, the Directors Guild, or the Writers Guild, but they are still a pretty good prognosticator for who will eventually take home the Oscar in their respective categories.

The Art Directors split their categories up into Period, Fantasy, and Contemporary Films (along with various TV categories), but the main one of importance here is the Period, where we find the more fanciful, eye-catching designs. Here, we find what was mostly expected: American Hustle, The Great Gatsby, Inside Llewyn Davis, Saving Mr. Banks, and 12 Years a Slave. If I had to venture a guess, I’d say that The Great Gatsby has this one in the bag. There were those who didn’t enjoy the film (I actually found »

2014 Oscar Predictions: Art Directors Guild and USC Scripters Nominees Announced

9 January 2014 9:30 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I've made a couple updates to my 2014 Oscar predictions in the Best Production Design and Best Adapted Screenplay categories as a pair of new pieces of "food for thought" arrived this morning in the form of nominations from the Art Directors Guild and the 26th USC Scripter Award nominees were announced. As far as changes made as a result of these announcements, most will be found in my Best Production Design predictions, which I hadn't updated in ages so it meant adding films including Her (which is now a predicted nominee) and The Wolf of Wall Street. In the screenplay categories I've left Best Original Screenplay alone, while I have a good feeling about my predicted nominees for Adapted Screenplay where the question I have is will it be Terence Winter's Wolf of Wall Street that gets a nom or Tracy Letts' August: Osage Countyc Right now I'm going with August. »
