Entertainment News: Comedian Jonathan Winters Dies at 87

12 April 2013 12:59 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Los Angeles – Jonathan Winters, one of the most influential comedians of the past two generations, has died of natural causes on April 11th at his home in Montecito, California. His characteristic schizophrenic comic style inspired modern funnymen like Robin Williams, George Carlin and Jim Carrey. He was 87 years old.

The career of Jonathan Winters spanned from 1948 to the present, during which his freaky, energetic expression of humor had its own unique form. A fixture on such legendary television shows such as “The Tonight Show” (with both Jack Paar and Johnny Carson), “The Dean Martin Show” and “Hollywood Squares,” Winters would often appear as his alter ego Maude Frickert, a sharp tongued old lady character. It wasn’t just an act, as during his early career he spent time in mental institutions, and was diagnosed with manic depression.

Oscars 2013: Tie for Best Sound Editing win is only the sixth in history

24 February 2013 7:44 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The surprise tie in this year's Best Sound Editing category officially makes this year's Oscars one for the record books: It's only the sixth time a tie has happened in Oscar history and the first in a technical category.

"Zero Dark Thirty" and "Skyfall" shared this year's Sound Editing award -- beating out "Argo," "Django Unchained" and "Life of Pi." (In an odd coincidence, both Kathryn Bigelow's acclaimed "Zero" and the blockbuster James Bond film "Skyfall" were both distributed by Sony Pictures.)

Perhaps the most famous tie happened in 1968, when Barbara Steisand's "Funny Girl" breakout performance tied with legendary Katherine Hepburn's turn in "The Lion in Winter" for Best Actress. We know from the record books that that was an exact tie, each actress received the same number of votes.

However, historically, Oscar will declare a tie if two nominees come within a few votes of each other. »
