The U.S. may have already hosted their biggest night in music earlier this month, but just across the pond, the United Kingdom is gearing up for their own star-studded music awards show, the Brit Awards, set to begin Wednesday afternoon Et.
The late David Bowie and grime artist Skepta are expected to win big, as both are up for best british male and british album of the year at the ceremony, hosted by Dermot O’Leary and Emma Willis.
In addition to a tribute to British legend George Michael, the show will
Halloween is my favorite holiday, but really, Thanksgiving is the most terrifying of traditional American celebrations. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about a holiday built on giving thanks, but in addition to its ritual animal sacrifice, the holiday is a bitter and ironic celebration of the tragic history of the American Indian population. In light of what is happening right now with the Dakota Access Pipeline, and increasing tensions post-election, many may be preparing for a Thanksgiving Thunderdome rather than a celebration of compromise. Adele, paper turkeys made out of handprints, and Diy cornucopias may not be enough to save us this year. My solution: horror movies.

What a great discovery! Last year Kino brought us a good-looking disc of John Ford's Hurricane and now they take the bold step of issuing one of the director's oldest intact features,
Following the release in March of ‘A Man Called Gannon’ (1968), Simply Media in the UK continue to release more Universal-International westerns, this time of 1940s and ‘50s vintage. The new releases, out on 18 April, are ‘Calamity Jane & Sam Bass’ (1949), ‘Cattle Drive’ (1951) and ‘Black Horse Canyon’ (1954). This trio of films are literally ‘Horse Operas’, with the accent on thoroughbred steeds and their importance and role in the working west. Be they cattle drovers, stock breeders or outlaws, where would any of them be without the horse? The answer, of course, is walking.
I’ll review the DVDs in the order I watched them. First up is ‘Cattle Drive’, a 1951 western directed by Kurt Neumann. Chester Graham Jnr (Dean Stockwell), the spoilt, arrogant son of railroad magnet Chester Graham Snr (Leon Ames), is accidentally left behind when the train he is travelling on makes a water stop.
The film explores the fascinating, true story of the relationship between Victorian England’s greatest mind, John Ruskin, and his teenage bride, Euphemia “Effie” Gray, who leaves him for the Pre-Raphaelite painter John Everett Millais.
Effie Gray is the first original screenplay written by Oscar-winning screenwriter Emma Thompson. In this impeccably crafted period drama, Thompson delicately and incisively probes the marital politics of the Victorian Era, and beyond.
Dakota Fanning stars as Effie Gray Ruskin. The cast includes Emma Thompson, Julie Walters, Tom Sturridge, David Suchet, Greg Wise, Claudia Cardinale, James Fox, Sir Derek Jacobi and Robbie Coltrane.
The film is produced by Andreas Roald (Terrence Malick’s Voyage Of Time) and Donald Rosenfeld (Malick’s Tree Of Life and Voyage Of Time).
Producer Donald Rosenfeld spent 1987 to 1998 as President of Merchant Ivory Productions, in charge of the financing
Also on the list are John Lasseter’s 1986 animated film, Luxo Jr; the original Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory with Gene Wilder; and Howard Hawks’ classic 1959 Western Rio Bravo. Documentaries and silent films also make up part of the selection which represents titles that are “culturally, historically or aesthetically” significant; they must also each be at least 10 years old. Check out the rundown of all 25 movies below:

She thought her marriage to Humphrey Bogart – who was 26 years older than her – would be her epitaph, but Bacall had so much more going for her through her career, she forged ahead and established her own identity. In that second act, it was the stage that became her main calling, as she won Tony Awards for her lead performances in “Applause” and “Woman of the Year” on Broadway. Her husky voiced, independent style was broadly appealing, especially in her early co-starring roles with Bogart.

Hollywood may have dominated the field since the beginning of motion pictures but European westerns are not exactly new; the earliest known one was filmed in 1910. Sixties German cinema made good use of Kay May’s western heroes Shatterhand and Winnetou, and the British produced The Savage Guns (1961), Hannie Caulder (1971), A Town Called Bastard (1971), Catlow (1971), Chato’s Land (1972) and Eagle’s Wing (1979). When the genre showed signs of flagging in the mid-sixties, a clever Italian director named Sergio Leone took it upon himself to reinvent the western – spaghetti style!
What made the spaghettis
The preliminary results are in from the first three days of competition. Miss Oklahoma Alicia Clifton, Miss Maryland Joanna Guy and Miss North Dakota Rosie Sauvageau have topped the first round of talent competitions.

It'll remain to be seen if any of those early winners will advance to the Top 10. Check back here at 9 p.m. Et/Pt for our live blog of all the teeth and tiaras.

My sister, who will be recapping with me from this point forward, is looking for more of two things in particular: 1. Blake and 2. Cee Lo's kitty, who we've recently learned is named Purrrfect.
The show opens with Carson Daly's increasingly skinny head only introducing the judges and their Prince medley.
Chelsey: "Adam Levine's in a tank top and Cee Lo's in sequins, so all is right in the world."
Jaimie: "He's like Bedazzle-Me Elmo"
Chelsey: "Whenever Cee Lo doesn't wear sunglasses, I remember why Cee Lo wears sunglasses."
Cee Lo's fittingly sunglasses-inducing ensemble aside, Blake stars off shaky, which we can only attribute to his denim-on-denim ensemble.
Between the coaches goading each other to turn around for less than stellar acts, Blake taking bows after being told he's good looking, and even Cee Lo's ridiculous reading glasses, there was a lot of fun being had in those giant red swivel chairs. My favorite, though, had to be Blake's admission that the contestants were getting "fooled by flash and boobs" in reference to Christina getting chosen a number of times early on.
Like Sunday night, the talent kept pouring in over the course of this two-hour event, as each coach picked up two more

Cee Lo Green on "The Voice"
The blind auditions continued on Monday night's (February 6) two-hour episode of "The Voice," with each judge picking up two more contestants to fill out the 12-person teams they'll take to the battle phase later in the season.
The episode opened with a flashy medley of Prince hits "1999," "Little Red Corvette" and "Kiss" performed by judges Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, before the crew got right to business with the auditions.
Aguilera picked up two acts, including the evening's first performers: platonic duo the Line. The pair's rendition of Tom Petty's "American Girl" got all four judges' attention, but despite much protest from Shelton, they picked Aguilera. Shelton later told the camera he
So John has to work his way through life by intellectually building models of what he thinks people are feeling, and of how he should respond to those feelings, and continually adapting his models to get closer to reality.

In the gilded hospitality suite of New York's Ritz-Carlton, the Coen brothers are pondering their success. "We are part of the system more than you would suspect," says Ethan, the younger, more combative (and, one suspects, more emotional) of the two brothers. "We are like Hollywood insiders now. It's really weird."
This draws a nod from Joel, the older, more laconic one. (You could imagine him playing bass for Patti Smith.) "One day you wake up and you realise that's happened and it's a shock," he says. "You find yourself at the Academy awards, or wherever the hell it is, and suddenly you know all these people. And you think: 'How the fuck did I get here?
