Gene Wilder is one of the few actors everyone can agree is hilarious and irreplaceable. What’s his best moment?
Gene Wilder is not just an extraordinary comic actor (and a fun dramatic one too, if you ever saw A&E’s whodunit Murder in a Small Town); he’s a singular presence who is an indelible part of our childhoods thanks to Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and a huge part of our appreciation of great comedy, thanks to The Producers, Blazing Saddles, and Young Frankenstein.

Adele’s now Academy Award winning song, “Skyfall,” was a perfect match for the James Bond franchise – bold, memorable, and just a little sexy. Adele’s powerful and commanding vocals seemed like a natural match for the film – and clearly it was an award winning combination. But what happens now? Adele is not the first mainstream artist to cross over into film and walk away with that coveted little gold man. Back in 2002, Eminem stopped simply telling people his story and put his lyrics on screen with 8 Mile and walked away with the Best Original Song Oscar for “Lose Yourself.” 8 Mile was Eminem’s first foray into film and while he now reserves his acting for music videos, Eminem »
