It influenced Stephen King's seminal horror novel, The Shining, and was the basis for a 1976 film starring Karen Black and Oliver Reed.

Exclusive: Anna Kendrick Explains the ‘Terrifying’ Feeling of Making ‘Into the Woods’

20 March 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

For those who got to see Rob Marshall’s adaptation of Into the Woods know it’s a magical experience watching Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, and Anna Kendrick bring these fabled characters to life on the big screen.

The film is also a big deal for any Stephen Sondheim fan. The prolific composer -- responsible for Company, Into the Woods, Sweeney Todd, and other shows -- has been making his mark on musical theater for over 40 years.

News: Stephen Sondheim Says Lady Gaga's Oscar Performance Was a 'Travesty'

And considering the pressure of living up to Sondheim’s legacy and doing his Broadway musical justice, you can’t blame the film’s cast for being stressed -- especially Anna Kendrick, who performed an updated version of “On the Steps of the Palace.”

“It was great and terrifying to be in the recording studio and have Stephen Sondheim knock on the door in between takes and »

Stephen Sondheim Belittles Lady Gaga's Sound of Music Tribute: "She Was a Travesty"

16 March 2015 6:48 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Lady Gaga's Sound of Music tribute at the Oscars was not one of Stephen Sondheim's favorite things. The legendary composer — who's known for musicals including Into the Woods, Follies, A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd, and Company, among others — told the UK's Times of London recently that he thought the performance was "ridiculous," and not in a good way. Sondheim's partner, Jeff Romley, who is 36 years old to his 84, "would crawl a mile to see" Gaga, he shared with the paper. But the [...] »

Week in Review: Academy considering move back to 5 Best Picture nominees

6 March 2015 8:54 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The experiment has failed. The Oscars simply don’t work. And no, I’m not just continuing to vent my frustration over Boyhood losing.

For the last six years, The Academy has experimented with a different number of Best Picture nominees, starting with 10, then a variable number between five and 10 based on first place votes.

That experiment could now be coming to an end. The Hollywood Reporter floated the rumor Tuesday that the Academy is seriously considering switching back to five nominees for Best Picture, and that the motion has support with a “significant fraction of the Academy”.

This is speculation at the moment, as the Academy’s Board of Governors isn’t set to meet until March 24. That said, this year’s Oscar ratings were down by 15 percent from last year, despite having one of the year’s biggest box office hits in American Sniper up for Best Picture »

One last 'Parks and Recreation' Q&A with Mike Schur

4 March 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It’s been a week since “Parks and Recreation” ended. In my review of the series finale, I said that I put off my usual post-season interview with Mike Schur at the time because he was otherwise occupied. (He did, though, offer an answer of sorts as to the question of who is Potus in the year 2048.) Over the last few days, though, we emailed some questions and answers back and forth on leftover bits of business from the finale and the final season, including the show finally identifying Leslie’s party affiliation, which guest stars Schur didn’t manage to squeeze into the final season, Ron and Leslie’s brief estrangement, the religious background(s) of the all-important Lerpiss family, and more. So if you haven’t tired of Schur after the two-part  interview we did before the finale, here’s us talking “Parks” one last time (sigh)… Was »

New Awards Season Rules: Would more nominees help solve the Oscars' diversity problem?

26 February 2015 6:25 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Excuse us if we go out on a limb here, but something tells us the collective brain trust at The Academy is glad this awards season has mercifully come to an end. After an incredibly diverse 86th Academy Awards ceremony, where "12 Years a Slave" took Best Picture, a Mexican filmmaker won Best Director, Lupita Nyong'o earned a Best Supporting Actress Oscar and John Ridley won Best Adapted Screenplay, the Oscars appeared to take a step back in 2015. It wasn't just that "Selma" was snubbed in a number of major categories. The #OscarsSoWhite hashtag became a historical footnote that will haunt the Academy for years (and, trust, it will be back again if the public wills it). But it had more to do with all white nominees in the acting categories than just "Selma" itself. This also brought to light that it was yet another year without a female nominee in the Best Director category, »

'Parks and Rec' Series Finale: 7 Moments So Perfect They Made Us Cry

24 February 2015 10:00 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Cue up the emotional GIFs, the Parks and Recreation series finale was an emotional roller coaster of big laughs, big guest stars and even bigger heart-twistingly nostalgic moments.

NBC

As the Parks crew tackled one last menial mission, fixing a broken swing, we flashed forward to their future lives. Some were pure comedy gold (Jean-Ralphio faking his own death and Craig as a still-manic old man), but mostly this nostalgic trip to the future just made us wish we had seven more seasons with our favorite Pawnee residents.

"When we worked here together, we fought, scratched and clawed to make peoples’ lives a tiny bit better," Leslie told her team in the finale. "What makes work worth doing is getting to do it with people that you love."

Parks and Recreation Boss on [Spoiler]'s Series Finale Return and the Perils of Predicting the Future

24 February 2015 7:59 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Warning: The following Q&A contains spoilers from Tuesday’s Parks and Recreation series finale.

Let’s do the time warp again.

That was the mentality of Parks and Recreation‘s writers as they approached the NBC comedy’s super-sized series finale, according to showrunner Mike Schur.

“We had just done this time jump to get from the end of Season 6 to the beginning of Season 7, so it was sitting right there,” Schur says of the show’s final episode, which consisted of multiple flash-forwards into the lives of the Pawnee gang. “We were like, ‘Well, why don’t we just keep jumping through time? »

‘Grand Budapest Hotel,’ ‘True Detective’ Top WGA Awards

14 February 2015 5:28 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Wes Anderson’s whimsical script for “The Grand Budapest Hotel” took the Writers Guild of America award for original screenplay, while Graham Moore’s script for codebreaking thriller “The Imitation Game” won for adapted screenplay.

HBO’s “True Detective” and FX’s “Louie” each took a pair of TV trophies.

“Alan Turing is the person for who we made this film,” Moore said in his acceptance speech at the Century Plaza in Los Angeles. “It is on the shoulders of his genius that we made this film.”

Anderson, who shares story credit with Hugo Guiness, recalled in his acceptance speech that it was appropriate to receive the award in Century City since he had worked with longtime collaborator Owen Wilson at a nearby motel many years ago.

“I can think of no greater neighborhood to accept this award in,” Anderson added.

Review: 'Parks and Recreation' - 'Mrs. Ludgate-Dwyer Goes to Washington/Pie-Mary'

10 February 2015 6:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's two "Parks and Recreation" episodes coming up just as soon as I keep a local binder maker on retainer... Unlike several other of this season's double-features, "Ms. Ludgate-Dwyer Goes to Washington" and "Pie-Mary" weren't linked by theme, or story. They were just two terrific installments of "Parks and Rec" that complemented each other by showing the very different kinds of stories the series has been able to tell. "Ms. Ludgate-Dwyer" is another cameo-filled road trip episode, with Leslie and April's journey to Washington bringing them into contact with Barbara Boxer, John McCain, Kirsten Gillibrand(*), Cory Booker, Orrin Hatch, and Leslie's hero (and Washington Bff) Madeleine Albright. But other than Albright, the politicians are just local color, and the main thrust of the episode is a Leslie and April story. And what's what interesting about it is that it's presented largely from April's point-of-view, which allows »

Jake Gyllenhaal Boxing Drama Southpaw Slated For July; Grimsby Drops To 2016

22 January 2015 7:53 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Sony Pictures and The Weinstein Company have pulled the ol’ switcheroo in trading release dates for Sacha Baron Cohen’s comedy Grimsby and the Jake Gyllenhaal-led boxing drama, Southpaw. Initially, Cohen’s football hooligan film occupied the July 31 spot, though Sony has opted to push the comedy back into February 2016, where it will go toe to toe with Ben-Hur.

In its place, The Weinstein Company quickly snapped up the vacant release date, which means that it is Gyllenhaal’s sports film that will make its bow on July 31, 2015. Directed by Antoine Fuqua, Southpaw will step into the boxing shoes of Billy “The Great” Hope, a talented fighter who teeters on the edge of a breakdown following a family tragedy. Rachel McAdams and Forest Whitaker are also on board for the flick, and Fuqua sung the praises of his leading man in a recent interview.

Jake is going to change how people see him. »

Oscar’s Bumpy Ride: The Academy’s Bittersweet Nominations In A Wide-Open Year – Hammond Analysis

15 January 2015 10:49 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Just when you thought you had this whole thing figured out, leave it to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to shake things up. If ever there was a bittersweet morning it was today.

Congratulations American Sniper, you got six nominations including Best Picture, But sorry Clint, they snubbed you in the Best Director category denying you the chance to become the oldest nominee ever.

Congratulations Foxcatcher for catching five nominations in key categories including Directing, Writing and Acting, But sorry Foxcatcher somehow not one of those five nods was for Best Picture.

Congratulations Selma because you did land a Best Picture nomination, But sorry that other than that (and “Glory” for Best Song) you were Awol, racking up one of the lowest overall totals ever for a Best Pic contender.

Congratulations The Lego Movie on that awesome Best Song nomination, the very first movie announced for all 24 categories, »
