The Academy Celebrates The Opening of The Hollywood Costume Exhibition in Los Angeles

30 September 2014 12:23 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

By Gary Salem and Michelle McCue

“What a costume designer does is a cross between magic and camouflage. We create the illusion of changing the actors into what they are not. We ask the public to believe that every time they see a performer on the screen he’s become a different person.”

Edith Head

On Monday, Wamg attended the press preview for the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences groundbreaking multimedia exhibition Hollywood Costume in the historic Wilshire May Company building.

Taking five years to create, this exhibition is the kickoff for the whole Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.

Emphasizing how costumes are so important in creating characters, this one-of-a-kind exhibition comes with its own film score, enhanced with dazzling animations and screenplay excerpts.

Organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (V&A), and sponsored by Swarovski, this ticketed exhibition »

The Power Of The Cross Media Artist

23 September 2014 3:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Over the years, cross media artists have shown us the quality of work a double threat can bring to a film. Most commonly, these artists are both musicians and actors (but some do so much more!). In this week’s new film, 20,000 Days On Earth, Australian musician-turned-actor Nick Cave stars in a documentary drama about his life as an artist. In celebration of the film’s release, here is a list of some of the most impressive cross media artists.

Barbra Streisand

Known for her distinctive sound, Barbra Streisand is one of the best-selling artists of all time, with more than 245 million records sold worldwide. She made her film debut in 1968 with Funny Girl, for which she earned her first Academy Award. She is also known for the films Hello Dolly, The Way We Were, Yentl and A Star Is Born. These movies equally displayed her acting and singing prowess. »

Musicals at the Oscars

10 September 2014 1:35 PM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

The Academy has a long and complex relationship with musicals, particularly with their ability to secure best picture nominations. The best picture nomination for Les Miserables (2012) at the 85th Academy Awards marked the first time since Chicago’s (2002) nomination and win that a musical was nominated in that category, and as of this moment, there aren’t many options that could break into the category this year.

Since premiering at Toronto, The Last 5 Years — the film adaption of the off-broadway musical written by Jason Robert Brown — has been receiving decent reviews but nothing that would propel it to best picture status. The Hollywood Reporter’s David Rooney said both Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan bring “confidence and depth of feeling” to their songs and “shift back and forth between rom-com breeziness and full-blown passion, be it the soaring highs or the heartsick lows” with ease, »

Hollywood Costume Lands At The Academy

8 July 2014 2:39 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

This fall the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will present the final showing of the groundbreaking multimedia exhibition Hollywood Costume in the historic Wilshire May Company building, the future location of the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, at Wilshire Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles.

The Definitive Movie Musicals: 20-11

18 May 2014 9:48 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The clear difficulty of identifying the definitive movie musicals is separating the musical itself from the film version. The Phantom of the Opera is, without a doubt, a top ten definitive stage musical. Movie musical? Not so much. Drawing a clear line between the two is what makes this list a little trickier. For this segment of the list, we have musicals that have no stage version, two Best Picture winners, a Palme d’Or winner, and a few musicals that may stretch the term a bit.

Naya Rivera leaving 'Glee'? Here's why we'll miss Santana

14 May 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

Santana was just learning how to be a good friend, too.

News broke April 29 that Naya Rivera — who’s played Santana Lopez on Glee for the past five seasons — is leaving the show, and won’t even be in the fifth season finale. (For what it’s worth: Rivera’s rep said she wasn’t fired; a rep for the show declined to comment to EW). And in Tuesday’s finale, Santana was nowhere to be found. (The show’s explanation: She was “shooting a Yeast-i-Stat commercial in Iowa for a week.”) While fans will have to wait and see »

From the small screen to the big stage? In a story of art possibly imitating art, “Glee” star Lea Michele and series co-creator Ryan Murphy are considering bringing the classic Barbra Streisand musical “Funny Girl” back to Broadway. On the latest season of “Glee,” Michele's Rachel Berry is earning rave reviews for her starring role in a fictional “Funny Girl” revival. Murphy spoke about the possibility in the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly. “I have the rights to it,” he said.” It's something that we're talking about. I've never done Broadway. I've always wanted to.” Also read: Ellen DeGeneres, Ryan Murphy, »

'Glee': Are Lea Michele and Ryan Murphy teaming for a real 'Funny Girl' Broadway revival? -- Exclusive

9 May 2014 12:20 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

This season of Glee has seen Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) win her dream role as Fanny Brice in a Broadway revival of Funny Girl. But are Michele and series co-creator Ryan Murphy, who owns the rights to the show, planning their own real-life revival of the iconic musical? Earlier this year, Michele gave interviews saying that the pair were indeed interested in bringing Girl to the stage.

Now, Murphy is confirming those discussions. While sitting down with EW for this week’s cover on his adaptation of HBO’s The Normal Heart, Murphy revealed, “I have the rights to it. »

Glee, Ep 5.18, “Back-up Plan” is overly ambitious

1 May 2014 5:06 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Glee, Season 5, Episode 18, “Back-Up Plan”

Written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

Directed by Ian Brennan

Airs Tuesdays at 8pm Et on Fox

Glee season five has been all about Rachel bouncing back and forth between legitimately nice and completely intolerable. Finally, after years of scrapping for solos in Glee Club, her lifelong goal has come true. She starts on Broadway while just barely in college at her dream school, playing the lead role in an iconic revival. Oh and did we mention it’s the lead role, the title role, Fanny Brice, the Funny Girl herself? The character who is essentially Rachel Berry’s spirit animal?  You guessed it, she gets bored after a month and attempts to throw the whole production under a giant bus.

The cinematography during “Wake Me Up”, originally by One Republic, works well. Particularly memorable are the camera angles shot through the flowers, showing the passage of »

“Glee” Recap 5.18 – The Meta Zone

30 April 2014 6:52 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

When we last saw Rachel Berry, she was basking in the glow of her triumphant New York Times review. She’s been a roll ever since. She’s being treated like a real star, with adoring fans waiting by the standing by the stage door, her face plastered on busses and benches, and there are even whispers of a Tony nomination. It’s everything Rachel has ever wanted. You know, what she’s been dreaming of since we met her four years ago. All we eeeeeever heard about. Well, today is a new day. She signs with the Ica talent agency, but the agent, who doesn’t think she’s got the look for television or film, quickly douses her ego. Brace yourselves; you are about to enter, The Meta Zone.

'Glee' Recap: Rachel Risks Her Broadway Career; Mercedes Recruits Santana For A Duet

29 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Glee returned on Tuesday with the apparent intention of flipping everything from last week – or the last several few seasons of Glee – of its head. For one thing, Rachel no longer thinks that being a Broadway star is all its cracked up to be.

Glee Recap

Signing autographs following a performance, Rachel (Lea Michele) glides down the streets of New York City. Her starring performance as Fanny Brice in Funny Girl has earned her rave reviews and chatter that the starlet could be on her way to her first Tony nomination. However, her joy is cut short during a meeting with her agent. Rachel thinks that she could parlay her Broadway career into one on the big or small screen. The agent doesn’t believe she has the look to be in front of the cameras, but assures her she can have a lengthy tenure as Fanny Brice.

50. Dancer in the Dark (2000)

Directed by Lars von Trier

Signature Song: “I’ve Seen It All” (

Who says people in a musical have to be able to sing? The list starts with a film directed by the director of Melancholia, Antichrist, and the recent Nymphomaniac films. Starring Björk, Dancer in the Dark takes place in the fantasy world of Selma, an immigrant from the Czeck Republic living in a blue-collar town in the United States. She lives on the property of a local police officer named Bill (David Morse) and his wife. She finds herself the object of a shy co-worker’s affection (Peter Stormare), but doesn’t entirely reciprocate, partly because she knows that she is slowly going blind. Terrified that her disease is hereditary and her son most certainly will get it, she works long hours at the factory, »
