The Relationship Between Globe-nominated Musical or Comedies and Best Picture Oscar Noms

19 hours ago | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

The 2015 Golden Globe nominees were announced Dec. 11,  with Alejandro G. Inarritu‘s Birdman leading the pack with seven nominations, including best picture — musical or comedy. Assuming Birdman will walk away with the win, what does that mean for its chances at the Oscars?

Well, since the musical or comedy category was created at the Globes in 1951, 51 of the films have been nominated for best picture at the Oscars and 13 have won.

Since 2001, 18 of the 70 films (26 percent) nominated for musical or comedy have received best picture nominations from the Academy and only two have won. Eight of the past 14 films (57 percent) to win for best musical/comedy at the Globes were also nominated for best picture at the Oscars. In contrast, 54 (77 percent) of the Globe-nominated dramas (including all 14 winners) have been nominated for best picture and 11 have won.

PopWatch Confessional: The thing you like (that everyone else hates)

12 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Last week, we talked about the widely beloved pop culture things we secretly despise. This week, we're tackling that question's sunnier opposite: What's the entertainment you love, even though everyone else gives it a bad rap? Ashley Fetters, EW.com news editor: There are plenty of unpopular things I like but can understand others' hatred for: Auto-Tune, black jelly beans, the "hella good hair" part of "Shake It Off," televised tennis. But I truly don't understand why some people hate the live-action 2000 version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Not only is it the perfect outlet for the over-the-top Jim Carrey »

National Board of Review's Most Violent Awards

2 December 2014 12:00 PM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Glenn here with the Nbr results as they come to hand. They used to be the first awards of the season to announce their winners, but now the National Board of Review are trumped annually by the Gotham Awards and the Nyfcc in the merry-go-round that is award season. I maintain that unless you're a guild, your absence is more or less moot. However, it can definitely help get your name and face out there to be acknowledged early and often. The Nbr is where the likes of Moulin Rouge! and Amy Ryan made it known that they would be forces to be reckoned with. What did this 105-year-old group select this year? Let's find out...

Nicole Kidman on playing the 'sugar and spice' villain in Paddington

26 November 2014 10:06 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Considering how spectacular she is at it, Nicole Kidman doesn't play the villain nearly as often as we'd like.

In this week's delightful Paddington, she plays villainous taxidermist Millicent, a character whose ruthless ambition recalls one of her best performances ever in 1995's To Die For.

Watch the video above to hear Kidman tell Digital Spy why she loves playing the bad girl, and why shooting Paddington gave her flashbacks to her role in Moulin Rouge!.

Paddington is released in the UK this Friday (November 28), and in the Us on January 16, 2015. »

Off the Carpet: 'Into the Woods' arrives with 'Unbroken' on deck

24 November 2014 2:49 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Moulin Rouge!" (2001), "Chicago" (2002), "The Phantom of the Opera" (2004), "Dreamgirls" (2006), "Enchanted" (2007), "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" (2007), "Nine" (2009), "Les Misérables" (2012). Between them, 50 oscar nominations, only three of them recognized for Best Picture and only one of them taking the big prize. That's more or less the modern legacy Rob Marshall's "Into the Woods" is looking to enter into, a stage of relative reinvigoration for the musical film genre. Of course, then there are films like "Burlesque," "Hairspray," "Mamma Mia!" and "The Producers," which were stiffed by the Academy but were remembered in the HFPA's Best Picture — Comedy/Musical category at the Golden Globes. Not to mention others like "Fame," "Footloose," "Idlewild," "Rent" and "Rock of Ages," which weren't remembered at all come awards season (with "Jersey Boys" and maybe "Annie" likely to meet similar fates). All of that is to simply illustrate the ups and downs for these »

18 November 2014 2:34 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Step right up and see the greatest wonders of the world! Like a man with iron claws growing out of his hands! Or a multi-talented Australian actor who can sing, dance and kick your ass!

Hugh Jackman is about to become The Greatest Showman on Earth by starring as P.T. Barnum in a new, original musical directed by commercial director Michael Gracey and written by Bill Condon (Dreamgirls). Jackman will star as the man who invented the three-ring circus, documenting Barnum’s rise in show business.

Deadline reports that the film is being pushed into the fast track by Fox thanks to Jackman’s involvement, and that this is the first real original musical Hollywood has produced since 2001′s Moulin Rouge!

Jackman of course recently starred in Les Miserables, although he didn’t get to do much dancing there, and while there’s no shortage of movie musicals from Into the Woods, »

Jackman's 'The Greatest Showman on Earth' Is Nearing Production

18 November 2014 8:00 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

We all know that Wolverine loves to sing and dance when he's not busy hogging all the spotlight in the X-Men movies, and now there's word that his next opportunity to prance around with a magical tune or two is coming together. While it's taken some time to get all of the pieces in place, Hugh Jackman's turn as P.T. Barnum in The Greatest Showman on Earth looks to be heading into production next summer.

The film will tell the tale of how legendary promoter Barnum, essentially, invented show business with his three-ring circus. The film will be the first movie musical not adapted from a stage show since 2001's Moulin Rouge. It'll feature original songs by Justin Paul, Benj Pasek, Bonnie McKee, Jake Shear and Brian Lapin, work off of a script from Bill CondonJenny Bicks and Jordan Roberts, and be directed by Michael Gracie.

Jackman's "Showman" Films Next Summer

18 November 2014 5:08 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

20th Century Fox is reportedly eyeing a Summer 2015 start of production date for the original musical "The Greatest Showman On Earth" starring Hugh Jackman.

Deadline reports that the studio is going through the budgeting process and is expected to start making deals with talent ahead of a shoot in New York next year.

Jackman stars as master showman Pt Barnum in the project which is said to be the first original, fully-fledged, live-action movie musical (with original songs) made by a studio since 1992 (Moulin Rouge, Once, Inside Llewyn Davis, The Muppets, Enchanted, etc. apparently don't count). The story deals with Barnum's invention of show business and ultimately the three-ring circus.

Michael Gracie is helming the project, while the likes of Jonathan Tropper and Bill Condon have worked on the script. Condon's "Dreamgirls" producer Laurence Mark is also onboard to produce this.

Jackman is currently drawing rave reviews for his performance »

Fox Moving Forward with P.T. Barnum Musical 'The Greatest Showman on Earth' with Hugh Jackman

17 November 2014 4:57 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

A major studio has not produced an original live-action movie musical since 1992's Newsies, starring little kid Christian Bale. I am talking wholly original, here. Moulin Rouge! in 2001 counts in that it was original story, but it only featured one and a half original songs. Therefore, it does not fit the criteria. Well, Fox is taking a chance on The Greatest Showman on Earth centered on P.T. Barnum, legendary co-creator of Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus. Hugh Jackman, who is now getting pretty good reviews on Broadway in Jez Butterworth's The River (though, the play itself is being met with a bit harsher criticism), is set to play Barnum in the film, which plans to start production in New York next summer. Bill Condon penned the latest draft of the screenplay. Michael Gracey, a former animator who has lined up a few projects to direct but has not started them yet, »

Hugh Jackman's P.T. Barnum Musical Finally Shooting Next Summer

17 November 2014 3:40 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

It's been over five years since we've heard anything on the development of the musical The Greatest Showman on Earth, the story of the famous three-ring circus creator P.T. Barnum. Last we heard, Hugh Jackman was slated to star in the film, and now Deadline reports the project is finally coming together with a plan to start shooting next summer in New York. This will be the first live-action, original big screen studio musical since The Goonies (though some argue you could count Moulin Rouge), and the most recent script comes from Bill Condon, writer and director of Dreamgirls. But who is directing? Michael Gracie, known for commercials full of dancing and a giant flash mob put together by Oprah Winfrey and the Black Eyed Peas (watch it here), will make his feature directorial debut on the film that has original songs by Justin Paul & Benz Pasek (of the Tony-nominated »
