George Bernard Shaw's 'Pygmalion' turns 100

7 April 2014 2:37 AM, PDT | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

London, April 7: The George Bernard Shaw-penned play, which featured the famous fictional character of Eliza Doolittle, 'Pygmalion' is almost 100 years old now.

Even though the play was written by Shaw between March and June 1912, it opened to the public in London on 11 April 1914, the Independent reported.

Through Pygmalion, which was later turned into romantic musical My Fair Lady six years after the Irish author's death in 1956, Shaw wanted to show the importance of equality for women.

Shaw won an Oscar for the screenplay of Pygmalion in 1939. (Ani) »

Australian actress Wendy Hughes dead at 61 (photo: Wendy Hughes in ‘Newsfront’) Australian film, television, and stage actress Wendy Hughes, best known internationally for the big-screen dramas My Brilliant Career and Careful, He Might Hear You, died of cancer early today, March 8, 2014, in Sydney. Hughes (born on July 29, 1952, in Melbourne) was 61. Wendy Hughes’ film career kicked off in the mid-’70s, with Tim Burstall’s psychological drama ‘Jock’ Petersen / Petersen (1974), in which she plays the wife of a college professor who becomes romantically involved with a married student (Jack Thompson). "I spent a lot of the time naked and doing sex scenes," Hughes would later recall about her work in ‘Jock’ Petersen, "because in the seventies you all had to do that." In 1979, Hughes landed a key supporting role in the international arthouse hit My Brilliant Career, Gillian Armstrong’s late 19th-century-set tale of an independent-minded young woman (a Katharine Hepburn »

Oscars 2014: 10 of the all-time best Academy Awards ceremony moments

28 February 2014 6:46 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

From Jack leching over Jennifer to John Wayne's farewell and Brando's no-show, these are just some of the greatest moments at the Oscars ceremonies ever

1. When Jack met Jennifer

This is perhaps my favourite Oscar moment ever, and it is from last year: the 85th Academy Awards in 2013. Tellingly, it does not take place up on stage, in the often tense and frozen ritual of the awards ceremony itself, but happens in the cheerful buzz of the post-show melee backstage. This single, endlessly replayed clip probably did more for Jennifer Lawrence's public profile than anything on the big screen.

George Stephanopoulos, the former Bill Clinton aide who later made a career in TV, was conducting on-the-hoof interviews for ABC and had grabbed 22-year-old Lawrence to talk about her best actress Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook. The »
