Week in Review: Sundance movies coming soon to a theater near you

30 January 2015 10:38 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We’ve been relishing the chance to be in Park City again this year for Sundance, despite the fact that for the first time in the festival’s history no movies are being screened on 35mm. That said, some already incredible movies have received awards and much deserved buzz. Most notable among them is Don Hertzfeld’s animated World of Tomorrow, which won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Short Film.

But we’ve also been watching the buyers, because for those of us who couldn’t make it out to Utah this year, we have an invested interest in actually seeing these movies some day. Here’s a list of some of the more notable deals that were struck. Indiewire has a full list of films and buyers.

Frank Shiner, Delayed But Never Denied, Releases New Album

29 January 2015 2:27 PM, PST | TheImproper.com | See recent TheImproper.com news »

Frank Shiner had a promising New York theater career until he put it on hold to raise two children with wife Suzanne. That was two decades ago. Now he’s back, doing what he loves best… singing. And, he’s finding an audience. His new single, “The Real Me,” was the No. 1 most added Adult Contemporary record on radio for the second week in a row. That puts him in the same league as Kelly Clarkson and Maroon 5. ...Read More »

Rita Ora to perform at Oscars 2015 ceremony, according to Diane Warren

19 January 2015 7:35 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Rita Ora has seemingly been confirmed to perform at this year's Oscars ceremony.

The singer and Voice UK coach has been tipped to perform 'Grateful' at the 87th Academy Awards telecast in Los Angeles next month, after songwriter Diane Warren was nominated for the track in the Original Song category.

Oscars 2015: What happened to diversity in this year's nominations?

The track was written for 2013 film Beyond the Lights, but much to Warren's dismay, was never serviced as a proper single.

"I was like, are you kidding me?" Warren told Vanity Fair. "[Rita Ora]'s never sung this good, it's a total hit song, it's a mass appeal hit record, what the f**k?"

Warren then seemed to suggest that Ora will perform at the Oscars, adding: "I hope they're waking up today, saying, 'Oh, maybe we should put this out as a single'. Maybe when she sings for 3 billion people »

American Idol Recap: New York, New York… A Helluva Town [Updated]

15 January 2015 7:46 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

“I’m goin’ to Hollywood!” — the preferred battle cry of the American Idol audition rounds — may take on a whole new meaning after Season 14’s New York City tryouts.

I mean, if soulful troubadour Hollywood Anderson — who stunned the judges (and moved J.Lo to tears) with a radio-ready original called “My Best Friend” — becomes the franchise’s next Kelly Clarkson or Carrie Underwood, any future contestant who shouts that phrase might sound more like they’re auditioning for CBS’ Stalker or another “this isn’t gonna end well” installment of 48 Hours: Mystery than Fox’s venerable singing competition.

Soundtracking: 87th Academy Awards

15 January 2015 1:46 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Thursday morning provided its share of surprises and snubs, but the Academy’s musical branch took a pretty clear anti-star stance in the Best Song category.

One year after the likes of U2, Pharrell Williams and Arcade Fire dominated the music categories, Oscar’s Best Song voters left big names like Lorde, Lana Del Rey and Patti Smith out of contention.

The biggest names in Best Song, instead, come from Selma’s entry into the category: “Glory” performed by John Legend and Common. Because the Academy enjoys formality the pair’s given names - John Stephens (Legend) and Lonnie Lynn (Common) - can now be added to the collective trivia file.

The song was one of just a pair of nominations for the historical drama, but having just won the Golden Globe in the same category, it begins the race as the front-runner.

 

 

The rest of the song entries run the gamut, »

Oscars 2015: Common, 'Lego Movie,' Glen Campbell Lead Song Nominations

15 January 2015 6:56 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

As with last year's Best Original Song nominees, the Academy's 79-song list of potential nods was not a very good indicator of what would actually make the cut. Although names like Lorde, Lana Del Rey and Coldplay popped out as possible winners, voters opted for a diverse mix of pop and classic songwriting verve this year.

Accordingly, the tunes that are up for Academy Awards this year span feel-good Lego party ragers, tender, acoustic love ballads and moving tributes to history. And the performers are just as wide-ranging, with comedians rapping, »

Rita Ora track 'Grateful', Tegan & Sara score Oscar nominations

15 January 2015 6:47 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A track recorded by Rita Ora has been nominated for an Academy Award.

The British singer and Voice UK coach recorded 'Grateful' for 2013 film Beyond the Lights, which has been nominated for Original Song at the 87th Academy Awards.

The song was written by Diane Warren, who has been solely credited for the Oscar nomination, as the prize is given to the track's songwriter or songwriters.

However, nominees for the Original Song category often perform at the ceremony, meaning that Ora could make an appearance at the show on February 22 in Los Angeles.

'Grateful' will face tough competition from Tegan & Sara and The Lonely Island's anthem 'Everything is Awesome', which featured in The Lego Movie.

John Legend and Common have also been nominated for Original Song for 'Glory', which features in Selma. »

Newlywed Adam Levine and his Maroon 5 bandmates are real-life wedding crashers in their new music video for "Sugar," but how did they pull it off?

14 January 2015 1:30 PM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

For the latest Maroon 5 music video, the guys teamed up with Wedding Crashers director David Dobkin to crash real weddings, surprising couples with performances of their song "Sugar." At the start, Adam Levine explains, "We're gonna drive across La and hit every wedding we possibly can." They filmed the video back in December, and for each stop, the band hid behind a white sheet.

American Idol Recap: Who Run the World? Girls! (*Age 19 and Under)

8 January 2015 7:11 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Pay no attention to Jennifer Lopez’s birth certificate! The “dewdrops in the enchanted forest” freshness of her visage is all the confirmation you need that the woman who gave us “Booty” (and booty) last summer is most definitely still a teenager.

Pity the poor mortals who have to age, though. “There’s something about when they’re that young,” J.Lo mused after 16-year-old Lovey James’ perky rendition of “Break Free” (a surprising hit for decaying 21-year-old Ariana Grande). “There’s a fearlessness… the same girl at 25 that comes in here and [hasn’t] had the success is a little beaten down. »
