18 December 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Would you like to hear Cameron Diaz and Bobby Canavale sing? Buy a ticket for "Annie" in theaters this week and you can! Then again, why wait. HitFix's Josh Lasser gets the stars of the new musical to belt their hearts out on a karaoke version of "Tomorrow" in the above-embedded video interview, which also has Diaz waxing poetic on why the musical's songs still appeal today: "They're just really upbeat, optimistic...when I think of these songs, they kind of like, they're going outward but they're also going in inward," she said. "They're soaring high but then they're drawing you in deep, you know? That's a nice juxtaposition." So what's Bobby's favorite karaoke song? And why doesn't Cameron think Rob Marshall or Baz Luhrmann would ever cast her in one of their film musicals? Find out by watching the full interview. "Annie" hits theaters on December 19. »

Lana Del Rey, Lorde Pick Up First-Time Golden Globe Nominations

11 December 2014 7:56 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The Best Original Song category at the 2015 Golden Globes is stacked with plenty of familiar faces.

The 72nd annual Golden Globes nominations were announced Thursday, notably marking first-time nominations for singers Lana Del Rey and Lorde.

Del Rey is nominated for her song "Big Eyes" from the Tim Burton film of the same title, which stars Amy Adams as painter Margaret Keane. The movie explores the difficulties Keane had with her husband Walter (Christoph Waltz), who claimed credit for her works in the 1960s.

The moody tune is sweeping and more than a little melancholy, everything one would expect from a Del Rey track.

The nomination for "Big Eyes" was a bit of a surprise given that her "Young and Beautiful," which was featured prominently in Baz Luhrmann's 2013 take on The Great Gatsby, was not nominated last year.

Miley Cyrus Is Reportedly Dating Patrick Schwarzenegger, And His Family Is Not Happy!

3 November 2014 4:15 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Has Miley Moved on with Arnold's son?!

Though everything else Miley Cyrus does makes headlines, she’s kept a relatively low-profile in the romance department since splitting from ex-fiancé, Liam Hemsworth, last year. But, it looks like that is changing.

The "Wrecking Ball" singer was snapped spending Halloween day with Arnold Schwarzenegger's 21-year-old son, Patrick, who is a student at USC and a model. And, a source tells Et that the rumors they are dating are absolutely true!

While we always love to see a new Hollywood couple emerge, Patrick's famous family – which of course includes mom Maria Shriver, John F. Kennedy’s niece -- is not too thrilled with the news.

In fact, our source claims Patrick's family has tried to talk him out of dating Miley, preferring one of his exes and fearing Miley might get him hooked on the Hollywood scene. Patrick »

Hugh Jackman Undergoes Third Treatment for Skin Cancer

28 October 2014 6:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Hugh Jackman has undergone another treatment for skin cancer, his third in less than a year, though his prognosis is good.

Jackman, who has basal cell carcinoma, had more cancerous cells removed recently and is hoping that this treatment will be his last, according to a spokesperson. He underwent similar procedures in November 2013, and again in May. (The above photo was taken shortly after the latter procedure; he also posted bandage-sporting selfies on his Instagram account.)

People reports that Jackman's cancer "is very treatable, but must be caught early." His rep tells the magazine that the actor is "okay now."

Since his diagnosis, the 46-year-old "X-Men" star has urged fans to protect their skin, and especially wear sunscreen. He posted a photo of Baz Luhrmann's late-'90s single "Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)" on Instagram to mark his latest treatment.

Baz Luhrmann‘s razzle-dazzle style isn’t for everyone, and it doesn’t work for every story. But it’s just perfect for high-end perfume ads, which are all about glam and glitz. This Chanel No. 5 spot stars Gisele Bündchen and Michiel Huisman (of Treme / Orphan Black / Game of Thrones fame) as star-crossed lovers who variously […]

Watch: Baz Luhrmann's Chanel No. 5 Short Film "The One That I Want" Starring Gisele Bündchen

17 October 2014 9:34 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Nobody does high-grade gloss quite like Baz Luhrmann. Dude can make a set decorated by a glitter cannon look positively cinematic. And so he's the perfect choice to direct an expensive looking, but pretty empty perfume commercial. So sit back and get ready for three vapid minutes of beautiful people and things. Chanel has unveiled "The One That I Want," a short film for their iconic Chanel No. 5 starring model Gisele Bündchen, along with Michiel Huisman and Lo-Fang, the latter of whom also performs the film's song, "You're The One That I Want." Subtle. Anyway, the story revolves around a really beautiful woman and a very handsome man who are very pained by their throbbing desire for one another but who eventually find a way to be together, even though the guy could've just waited for the girl to stop surfing before he drove away. But we will way the »

Is this American Horror Story: Freak Show or Glee?  We're not complaining! Sarah Paulson took the Freak Show stage with a cover of Fiona Apple's "Criminal" as conjoined twins Bette and Dot Tattler.

Watch Conjoined Twins Sing Fiona Apple's 'Criminal' on 'American Horror Story'

Two weeks in and American Horror Story: Freak Show is making it real tough for viewers. On one hand, it's difficult to stomach all the gory murders, killer clowns and visual oddities that the show spotlights every week, but on the other hand, it's even harder to miss out on the anachronistic musical performances Freak Show doles out each episode. The first episode of Freak Show, which takes place in Jupiter, Florida in 1952, made clever use of David Bowie's Hunky Dory cut "Life on Mars?" On Wednesday night, the »

Editor's Note: Faithful reader and frequent Best Shot participant Derreck (see his tumblr here) attended a special film event that we desperately wanted to make it to last week, a screening of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" with everyone's favorite red curtain Aussie auteur hosting. I invited Derreck to share his memoir of the event, so here he is to do so! - Nathaniel R.

I've never seen The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Oh, don’t get me wrong, I’ve heard about it. I’ve seen images of Tim Curry in a corset, fishnets and makeup, heard about shadowcasts and seen its enduring cultural presence in movies like The Perks of Being a Wallflower, but I’d never actually watched the film. I was born way after it was released and even though to this day, it is one of the longest theatrical releases in the history of cinema, »
