Kellie Pickler looked gorgeous as usually when she performed a holiday classic at the Cma Country Christmas show at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. The show was hosted by Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles but Kellie definitely stole the show!
Kellie Picker Stuns At Cma Country Christmas Awards
The lyrics are super cute: “Old Mr. Kringle/is soon gonna jingle/The bells that’ll tingle /all your troubles away/Everybody’s waiting for the man with the bag/Cause Christmas is coming again/He’s got a sleigh full/it’s not gonna stay full/Stuff/that he’s dropping/every stop of the way/Everybody’s/waiting for the man with the bag/Cause Christmas is coming again.”

The country crooner transformed into a blonde bombshell as she channeled Marilyn Monroe in a stunning, gold sequin gown while she delivered a fun and festive performance on stage. Did you love her look? Vote.
Kellie Pickler was dressed to impress for the 2013 Cma Country Christmas taping at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on Nov. 8, where the 27-year-old star opted for a festive frock for the occasion. Kellie dazzled in her gold sequin, off-the-shoulder Georges Chakra Couture creation, which featured transparent side panels on the sleeves, giving the illusion that her frock was sleeveless. She looked like a screen siren as the sequin mermaid silhouette hugged her curves — and everything about her dress was simply stunning!
The singer performed “The Man With The Bag” for the special and was joined on stage by a slew of males as she channeled Marilyn Monroe‘s »

Building 222 at 20th Century-Fox will be named after longtime Fox music executive Lionel Newman at a dedication ceremony on Nov. 21 at the Pico lot.
Composer John Williams, who worked with Newman during the 1960s and 1970s — first on such TV series as “Lost in Space,” later on the early “Star Wars” films — will speak at the ceremony. Other members of the Newman family, including singer-songwriter Randy Newman (Lionel’s nephew) and TV composer Joey Newman (his grandson), are expected to attend.
The building has housed the studio’s music-department administrative offices for many years, including Lionel’s own office and one for Williams when he was regularly composing for the studio (“The Poseidon Adventure,” “Star Wars”).
Newman worked at Fox for more than 40 years, beginning as a rehearsal pianist in 1943 when his older brother Alfred was the studio’s general music director. He went on to compose, conduct or supervise »

Heidi Klum threw her 14th annual Halloween party on Thursday (Oct. 31) in New York City, welcoming all kinds of models, designers, photographers, actors and musicians in their scariest or funniest outfits.
Klum herself was nearly unrecognizable as an elderly woman, while talk show host Bethenny Frankel came as Marilyn Monroe circa "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" and Perez Hilton became the latest in a long line of people dressed up as Miley Cyrus from the VMAs.
Check out all the pics from Klum's Halloween monster mash here in our gallery.

The public fascination with Marilyn Monroe will likely never die.
At the height of her fame she was impossibly larger than life, but before Some Like It Hot and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes she was just another 21-year-old hopeful ingenue looking to make it big in Hollywood. In honor of the anniversary of her death this week, Life.com has published a slideshow of never-before-published outtake images from the Life digital archives that show the woman before she was an icon.

Amir here, to bring you this month’s Team Top Ten on a topic that remains one of our biggest collective pet peeves here at The Film Experience.
Every year when the Academy announces the list of recipients of the Honorary Oscar, we can expect only one thing: they will all be men. Sure, the odd woman wins the award here and there, but consider this: between 1993, when the honor was bestowed upon Deborah Kerr, until 2009, when Lauren Bacall shared the award with two men, not a single woman was deemed worthy of the biggest honor AMPAS has to offer. Apologists can point to the fact that men have run the industry at large since its inception. They would be right; the industry as a whole is equally at fault, if not more, but take a look at the list of women still awaiting their first statue – or *gasp* first »

Elliott Reid, best known for his roles in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and The Absent-Minded Professor, died Friday at 93. He passed away from heart failure at the assisted-living facility in Studio City, Calif. where he lived, his nephew told the Los Angeles Times. Photos: Hollywood's Notable Deaths of 2013 Reid starred opposite Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and alongside Fred MacMurray in The Absent-Minded Professor. He also had roles in Son of Flubber and Inherit the Wind and appeared in episodes of I Love Lucy, Perry Mason and Murder, She Wrote, among others.

Elliott Reid, the character actor who starred in classic Hollywood films like "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes," died Friday of heart failure at an assisted living facility in Studio City, California. He was 93.
Reid, whose work spanned multiple genres and media including film, television, radio, and the stage, was probably best known for his performances alongside Hollywood legends Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell in "Blondes," and Fred MacMurray in "The Absent-Minded Professor." Other notable roles included turns in "Inherit the Wind" and "Son of Flubber."
Born Edgeworth Blair Reid on Jan. 16, 1920 in New York City, he eventually took the stage name Elliott, and at age 15 got his big break appearing on an Orson Welles radio program, which led to further collaborations between the two on the airwaves and on the stage. Known for being a gifted mimic, Reid did a famous impression of President John F. Kennedy at a 1962 Washington dinner that left the president in stitches. »

A Mercury Theater player turned comic actor, Elliott Reid may be best known as the thorn in Fred MacMurray's side in The Absent-minded Professor (1961) and Son Of Flubber (1963). Reid starred in director William Cameron Menzies' Cold War sci-fi thriller The Whip Hand (1951), Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953), Inherit The Wind (1960), The Thrill Of It All (1963), The Wheeler Dealers (1963), Move Over, Darling (1963), Who's Been Sleeping In My Bed? (1963), Blackbeard's Ghost (1968) and Some Kind Of A Nut (1969). Reid also made countless TV appearances, notably Design For Loving, a classic 1958 episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents based on a story by Ray Bradbury. Reid last appeared onscreen in a 1992 episode of Seinfeld and in a 1995 episode of Maybe This Time with Bette White.- Harvey Chartrand

No matter their age, hardly anyone is unfamiliar with Marilyn Monroe.
As the 50th-anniversary year of her death continues, the blond bombshell is recalled by many famous admirers in "Love, Marilyn," a documentary by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Liz Garbus ("The Farm: Angola, USA") making its HBO debut Monday, June 17.
From Glenn Close and Ellen Burstyn to Jeremy Piven and Lindsay Lohan, celebrities weigh in on Monroe's impact on them ... with archival footage, some found recently, offering visuals of the screen icon whose classic movies include "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" and "Some Like It Hot."
"I think Marilyn was a product of the 1950s and 1960s," Garbus tells Zap2it. "Her evolution as a woman - and her carving out the space she did, of sexuality and of vulnerability but also of power - was very resonant in terms of what was happening with femininity at the time. And her struggles with, and dedication to, »

The theater business is nothing if not superstitious. But some opening night traditions are kept under wraps—robed, if you will. As another season of Broadway premieres draws to a close April 25 with the opening of “Pippin,” one of the Main Stem’s most cherished backstage rites connects this year’s casts to decades’ worth of their predecessors. On opening night of every Tony-eligible Broadway chorus musical, the cast, crew, producers, and box office team gather for the Gypsy Robe. Presented to the show’s ensemble member with the most Broadway chorus credits, the robe pays homage to gypsies—those cast members traveling show to show, following the work, slogging it in the ensemble. Endowed with the history of its Broadway predecessors, the robe brings luck to the new arrival. The tradition dates to the 1950 production of “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,” when dancer Bill Bradley used to steal cast mate Florence »
This will be the last top ten off the top of my head whole decade thingies for a bit -- we need to get to real articles but I've been swamped off blog. But these discussions are fun, don't you agree? The 1950s were the first film decade I was obsessed with in that when I was first becoming interested in cinema in the mid 80s, the 50s somehow came to signify Mythic Classic Hollywood to me, though cinema obviously stretched much much further back. So I guess I'll always be kind of attached to this decade when the movies got literally bigger (I do so prefer rectangulars to squares) and the era's stars really defined (at least for me) the concept of "Movie Star". I mean it's hard to argue with Liz, Brando, Clift, Dean, Monroe in all caps.
Which is why Giant is such a perfect 1950s movie »
