Few No. 1 Billboard Hits Win Big at the Oscars

22 January 2015 6:48 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

Managing Editor 

From the 79 original songs on the Oscar shortlist, five were nominated a week ago on Jan. 15: “Everything Is Awesome” from The Lego Movie, “Glory” from Selma, “Grateful” from Beyond the Lights, “I’m Not Gonna Miss You” from Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me and “Lost Stars” from Begin Again.

Following a recent trend, none of the nominees have made it to the top of the BIllboard Hot 100 chart, which tracks the success of  singles by looking at radio play, online streaming and sales.

Following the announcement of the nominations, “Glory” made its debut at No. 25 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart dated Jan. 31 and is currently No. 92 on the Billboard Hot 100.

When “Everything Was Awesome” debuted in January 2014, the song debuted at No. 7 on the Dance/Electronic Songs chart and peaked at No. 57 on Billboard’s Hot 100.

‘Whitney’ Review: Angela Bassett’s Directorial Debut Glosses Over the Big Ugly

16 January 2015 6:02 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Lifetime’s original movie, which stars Yaya DaCosta as the troubled late singer, feels half-baked

Despite the sentiment of one of her most famous songs, Whitney Houston was definitely not every woman, but instead a talent on a larger-than-life scale.

In her directorial debut, actress Angela Bassett‘s depiction of the “Greatest Love of All” singer, played by Yaya DaCosta (“Lee DanielsThe Butler”), attempts to show the human side of the legend, but occasionally staggers along the very line it tries to cross — where genius-level skill meets basic human need for love, understanding and companionship.

Kevin Costner Honored with BFCA Lifetime Achievement Award

14 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Twenty-five years ago the prophetic declaration “If you build it, they will come” sounded across an Iowa cornfield in “Field of Dreams.”

Kevin Costner, the film’s star, has crafted his career along the lines of that advice, creating an oeuvre to which auds have flocked — and which the industry has rewarded with multiple kudos.

Over the past three decades the Oscar- and Emmy-winning multihyphenate has acted in, produced, written and directed some of the most beloved movies in American filmmaking, from the critical juggernaut “Dances With Wolves” to Oliver Stone’s “JFK” to Mike Binder’s gripping and — as it turned out — critically timely 2014 custody battle drama “Black or White,” which he also backed financially.

Now Costner can add Broadcast Film Critics Assn. Lifetime Achievement Award to his accolades. The award, which honors Costner’s significant contribution to the entertainment industry, will be handed out during the Bfca Critics »

Exclusive! Angela Bassett Reveals Which 'Whitney' Scenes She Absolutely Wouldn't Include in Biopic

13 January 2015 6:08 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Angela Bassett will always love Whitney Houston.

"I'm not gonna tear her down," Bassett insists, getting candid with ETonline in a new interview to promote her directorial debut focusing on the life of the late pop-music legend.

In Whitney, premiering Jan. 17 on Lifetime, the actress-turned-director gives the public a peek into the singer's trials and tribulations behind the mic -- but don't go misreading her intentions, she says. Bassett went as far as cutting scenes from the film to avoid tarnishing Houston's legacy.

"There were certain things in the script, and it was like, 'No, we're not gonna show that!'" the director says. "With the song with Babyface ("I'm Your Baby Tonight"), the way it was written (in the script was) she picks up a cigarette and can't concentrate on finishing the song because she's thinking about what's not going right with Bobby »

Kevin Costner Explains Why He Spent $9 Million of His Own Money to Make ‘Black or White’ (Q&A)

4 January 2015 10:29 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter

A version of this story appears in the The Hollywood Reporter’s January awards issue.

Kevin Costner, who has been one of Hollywood’s most popular leading men for the past 30 years — from SilveradoThe Untouchables, Bull Durham and Field of Dreams to Dances with Wolves, JFK and The Bodyguard — will turn 60 in January, if you can believe it. But don’t for a second think that he’s slowing down: In addition to passion projects that range from financing and designing a machine to clean up oil spills to financing and co-authoring a series of family-friendly books, he has just completed a controversial new film, which he also bankrolled when others shied away from it.

Black or White, which Relativity Media will release in select theaters on Jan. 30, reunites Costner with his Upside of Anger writer-director Mike Binder and had its world premiere »
