Why the Grammy Awards only got it half right with the new sampling rule

12 June 2014 11:46 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Grammy Awards governing body, the Recording Academy, has never been one to make rash decisions when it comes to modifying the awards procedure, so here, in 2014, they have made a major decision regarding sampling: Starting with the Feb. 8, 2015 Grammy Awards, songs that include samples or interpolations of previously written songs will be allowed in all songwriting categories, including the coveted Song of the Year. Is this a good decision? I’m not so sure. In some ways, the Grammys are so cautious in making changes that they miss the cultural significance of that musical moment (and that is partially the Grammys’ point: they aren’t meant to bow to trends or fads). On the plus side, this is simply an acknowledgement that a new, creative work that stands on its own that uses a sample to add some zing or to salute an influence, shouldn’t be exempt because of the sample. »

6 March 2014 9:23 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A horde of giant, horny preying mantises are about to be unleashed on the world as Sony Pictures acquires the rights to Andrew Smith's young adult novel Grasshopper Jungle.

The book was published last month and is set in the small town of Ealing, Iowa. It centers on friends Austin and Robby, who accidentally set an army of insects on an unsuspecting populace. Here is the book's official synopsis:

In the small town of Ealing, Iowa, Austin and his best friend Robby have accidentally unleashed an unstoppable army. An army of horny, hungry, six-foot-tall praying mantises that only want to do two things. This is the truth. This is history. It's the end of the world. And nobody knows anything about it. You know what I mean.

Funny, intense, complex, and brave, Grasshopper Jungle brilliantly weaves together everything from testicle-dissolving genetically modified corn to the struggles of recession-era, small-town »

Sony Pictures Acquires ‘Grasshopper Jungle’, Coming-Of-Age Tale Mixed With Giant Shag-Happy Insects

6 March 2014 4:32 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Sony Pictures just closed a deal for Grasshopper Jungle, the just-published Dutton Ya novel by Andrew Smith. Scott Rosenberg brought in the project and is negotiating to adapt it for producer Matt Tolmach. It’s perhaps best described as Stand By Me meets Attack The Block, a coming-of-age yarn revolving around a teenager in Iowa trying to come to grips with his own sexual feelings as he and his cohorts cause a deadly genetically engineered plague that unleashes an army of 6-foot-tall praying mantises with an insatiable appetite for fighting, food, and fornicating. Michael De Luca and Elizabeth Cantillon steered the deal for Sony. De Luca just started at the studio but he also brought in the $1 million spec Winter’s Knight last weekend. Rosenberg is best known for scripting such films as Beautiful Girls, Con Air and High Fidelity and who most recently rewrote Heist for Steve Zaillian »

Remember when Heath Ledger dated Heather Graham? Lena Dunham does, thanks to the Old Loves Tumblr -- Video

20 February 2014 6:13 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

During an hour-plus interview with Grantland’s Bill Simmons, Lena Dunham covered a range of topics — from Jezebel’s “messed up” offer to pay thousands of dollars for her un-retouched Vogue photos to the creepy undertones of the movie Beautiful Girls.

But our favorite topic was the Girls creator’s Tumblr obsession: Old Loves. The name invokes images of elderly lovebirds, but it’s actually an exhaustive catalog of celebrity couples who are no longer together. Some exes are very memorable (we all know that Notebook co-stars Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams were also a real-life couple), but some are »
