A sullen French-Algerian violinist tries to tame a rowdy Parisian class of immigrant and second-generation immigrant kids so he can teach them how to play the fiddle in La Melodie. For those who have seen Sergio Machado’s 2015 title The Violin Teacher, shot in the shantytowns of Sao Paulo, or, before that, Wes Craven’s East Harlem-set Music of the Heart with Meryl Streep, this will be an all too familiar tale — except that it’s now in French. Indeed, for much of the film’s running time, actor-turned-director Rachid Hami doesn’t seem interested in reinventing the wheel of the inspiring-music-teacher genre, »

In honor of Streep’s incredible feat (which she celebrated with an epic gif of her dancing; see below), we’re looking back at the roles that got her the accolades.
(We’re just as excited as you, Meryl!)
1979: The Deer Hunter

Although this year's Academy Awards mark Justin Timberlake's first time attending as a nominee, the singer isn't a stranger to the Oscars stage. Timberlake is up for best original song for "Can't Stop the Feeling," his hit from the Trolls soundtrack, and he'll be performing the catchy song during the show. There's plenty of buzz and excitement about his upcoming performance, but this actually isn't his first time in the Oscars spotlight. Timberlake's return to the Oscars stage comes after 17 years (!) and (Rip, curls) several different hairstyles. Back in 2000, he and the rest of *Nsync joined Gloria Estefan to perform "Music of My Heart" from the movie Music of the Heart. The song was nominated in the same category, best original song, with music and lyrics by Diane Warren. Ready for a trip down memory lane? Check out the 2000 performance below, which will truly fulfill all your nostalgia needs. »

The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actress race The 2017 Oscar Nominees: Everything you need to know about the Best Actress race Adriana Floridia2/10/2017 11:36:00 Am
This year's Best Actress race is extremely competitive.
Some of our favourite performances couldn't secure the nomination, and it was simply because there were so many incredible female performances. We're sad that names like Annette Bening for 20th Century Women, Amy Adams for Arrival and Hailee Steinfeld for The Edge of Seventeen weren't among the nominees, but we also love the five nominated performances so much. Seriously, it was just a great year for women acting in film, and with the talent out there today, it's always going to be hard, and therefore even more of an honour, to land that Oscar nomination.
Though there's five women in the running here, the race has been pretty much narrowed down to two major threats. »

Everyone talks about Meryl Streep’s record-setting number of Academy Award nominations, but perhaps even more impressive is the number of Golden Globe Award nominations she’s received: 30, as of this year, with her latest nod for Florence Foster Jenkins.
In fact, the Hollywood Foreign Press seems to be so enamored with Streep that they’ll give her a nomination for pretty much anything (even Mamma Mia!). And now, they’re finally giving her the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement in motion pictures.
In honor of Streep’s incredible feat — only Jack Lemmon has even come close, with »
