31 December 2008 12:43 AM, PST | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

Teen sensation Miley Cyrus will spend New Year's Eve in a high school gym. The singer isn't performing a scene from "High School Musical," but it's her own New Year's Eve show for MTV.

"A Miley New Year's Eve," beginning at 8/7c on MTV, will not only include performances by Miley but will also honor a student who has spent the year volunteering for a greater cause.

E! News is reporting that that teen is Alison Kaprielian, a senior at Beckman High School in Irvine, California, who has dedicated her time working for the Pink Ribbon Club for breast cancer awareness. Kaprielian's selfless work has won her a New Year's Eve to remember.

Miley, and her Bff Mandy Jiroux, surprised Kaprielian at her house on Tuesday and then spent the day with her. Now it's on to a giant party in the gym of Beckman High School Wednesday night. Thanks »

Zac Efron Wants To Pick Johnny Depp's Brain

28 December 2008 10:41 PM, PST | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

Zac Efron wants to meet Johnny Depp and "pick his brain." The "High School Musical" star is determined to shed his clean cut image and become known as a serious actor, just like his idol Johnny.

He said: "I would love to just sit down and talk with Leonardo DiCaprio and Johnny Depp and pick their brains about their early careers. They do it because they love it, not because they enjoy being famous. You have to have good foresight and be really careful. If you don't adapt and learn at a very young age, you can really mess up."

Zac says he will miss working alongside his girlfriend, "High School Musical" co-star Vanessa Hudgens, when he moves on to new career challenges.

He explained: "After three movies together, Vanessa and I feel free to do whatever we want, and we're just kind of silly and uninhibited. It felt like »

Listen to Oscar Conteding Songs from 'Slumdog' and 'The Wrestler'

28 December 2008 6:00 AM, PST | GetTheBigPicture.net | See recent Get The Big Picture news »

Last month, we featured a way that you could listen to the score for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button online. The studio was kind enough to send me the soundtrack after our little mention here, which was very nice, and indeed, Alexandre Desplat's score is magnificent and he's one of the strongest composers working in film at the moment, as well as being one of my favorites and the most versatile.

You should check out the score even without seeing the film, although like most movie music, it's better in the proper context.

In another category, you can now preview two potentisl Best Song nominees, and among movies not named High School Musical, I think they stand a very good chance. I don't think High School Musical has great or even remotely memorable or compelling songs, just that Disney submitted 11 songs that are in the running for the five nominations, »

Disney Leaves the Magical Land of Narnia

24 December 2008 9:15 AM, PST | GetTheBigPicture.net | See recent Get The Big Picture news »

Disney and Walden Media have parted company on the Chronicles of Narnia series, and will not be making the third film, Voyage of the Dawn reader, even though the project had been in pre-production.

The Hollywood Reporter makes the all-too-compelling point that even though Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings have been extremely successful franchises, it has been harder for other big budget series in the fantasy arena to find and maintain audiences. The first Narnia movie was an extraordinary hit worldwide, but this summer's Prince Caspian, while profitable, was nowhere near the success of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe.

There is still the possibility that Walden will pursue a new studio to continue the series and The Reporter indicates that Fox might be a likely suitor, because of its Fox Walden label. The only drawback there is that Fox is licking its wounds from one of »

Ashley Tisdale's Secrets for a Sexy Bod

23 December 2008 8:30 AM, PST | TheInsider.com | See recent The Insider news »

'High School Musical' star Ashley Tisdale reveals what keeps her motivated to maintain her fabulous figure. In an interview with Shape magazine, the 23-year-old actress says she reevaluated her exercise goals after injuring her back on the set of the TV series "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody." "It was a bad fall, and it really started hurting when I was dancing on tour."  Ashley was always petite and says that at first, she "hated" the gym, which "felt like torture" compared to the exercise she got while performing in the 'High School Musical' movies that didn't seem like work at all. "I was always super thin -- too skinny, actually. I felt like someone could break me in half." The actress says that a big motivator for her in the gym now is her personal trainer, Christopher Hebert, with whom she's been working with for about eight months. »
