5 reasons why I knew Lady Gaga would soar in ‘A Star Is Born’

5 reasons why I knew Lady Gaga would soar in ‘A Star Is Born’
Some singers turned film actors hit a high note by playing a version of themselves, such as Whitney Houston in “The Bodyguard,” bolstered by a safety-net soundtrack of surefire hits. Then there is Cher, who dropped the glam act and proved herself worthy of the silver screen in 1983’s “Silkwood,” 1985’s “Mask“ and especially 1987’s “Moonstruck,” the source of her Best Actress Oscar. As for Madonna, she started out with a bang riffing off her taboo-eschewing personas in 1985’s “Desperately Seeking Susan.” But save for her sexpot ball player in 1992’s “A League of Her Own” and her dedicated effort to nail the musical intricacies of 1996’s “Evita,” for which she won a Golden Globe, the Material Girl was not all that adept at picking her own big-screen material.

But when I first saw the trailer for the latest version of “A Star Is Born” when it arrived in June,

Meron went on to talk about how Zadan believed in the popular art form of film and TV and that his work with Jesus Christ Superstar is acknowledged.

When Rice, who worked with Webber on the original musical, took the stage saying that “Everyone involved did it right.” He thanked the American people, pointing out that when the original soundtrack came out they purchased it in droves, contributing to its success.

Three more people just joined the exclusive Egot club. John Legend, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, producers of NBC’s production of “Jesus Christ Superstar,” won for Best Variety Special (Live) Sunday at the Creative Arts Emmys in downtown Los Angeles.

Only 12 entertainers in Hollywood history had won Egot prior to Sunday: the showbiz grand slam of Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Awards. Adding three additional to an already small group is a very big deal. The dozen already achieving Egot are (in chronological order of achievement): composer Richard Rodgers, actress Helen Hayes, actress Rita Moreno, actor John Gielgud, actress Audrey Hepburn, composer Marvin Hamlisch, orchestrator Jonathan Tunick, writer/director/composer Mel Brooks, director Mike Nichols, actress Whoopi Goldberg, producer Scott Rudin, and composer Robert Lopez.

Singer-actor John Legend, composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyricist Tim Rice have been inducted into the Egot hall of fame, thanks to Sunday night’s Emmy win for producing “Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert.”

The trio clinched the “E” in the coveted Egot title for Outstanding Variety Special (Live) for producing Fox’s live version of Lloyd Webber and Rice’s 1970 rock opera about Jesus’ final days, beating out other nominees including the Golden Globes and Oscars.

Legend won a Tony Award last year for co-producing the play, “Jitney,” an Oscar for his song, “Glory,” in 2014’s “Selma,” and, well, we don’t even have to explain his illustrious Grammy-gilded music career. He won Best New Artist back in 2005, his very first tread into Egot territory.

Emmy episode analysis: Mandy Patinkin (‘Homeland’) assembles a team to investigate Russians in ‘Species Jump’
Mandy Patinkin has this year earned his fourth Best Drama Supporting Actor Emmy nomination for portraying CIA operative Saul Berenson on Showtime’s “Homeland.” This marks the actor’s seventh career nomination, having previously been recognized for “Chicago Hope” (1995 and 1999), winning on the first occasion, and “The Larry Sanders Show” (1992). Patinkin, also a Tony Award winner (Best Musical Featured Actor for “Evita” in 1980), has submitted for voters’ consideration the sixth episode of the season, “Species Jump.”

In the episode, Saul gathers a team, including ex-cia Russian expert Sandy (Catherine Curtin) and tech specialist Clint (Peter Vack), to investigate how Russian national Yevgeny Gromov (Costa Ronin) was involved in the Lucasville Massacre, a violent standoff between the FBI and followers of right-wing radio personality Brett O’Keefe (Jake Weber) that resulted in several casualties.

Neil Meron on Craig Zadan: ‘He Had a Singular Passion for Producing’
Long before he was an Emmy- and Tony-nominated producer, Craig Zadan was a man who made things happen.

Zadan, who died Monday at the age of 69, was a musical theater devotee in his early 20s in 1973 when he was recruited to help produce a tribute to famed composer Stephen Sondheim as a fundraiser for the American Music and Dramatic Academy and the National Hemophilia Foundation. What started out as a typical charity dinner evolved into a musical production with 33 prominent Broadway stars and a 30-piece orchestra. After a triumphant event, Zadan wound up negotiating a deal with RCA Records to release an album from the evening, “Sondheim: A Musical Tribute – March 11, 1973.”

Zadan’s determination to put on the best show possible for the composer he greatly admired was indicative of the drive that would fuel his prolific output over the next 45 years. With his longtime producing partner Neil Meron, Zadan delivered distinctive work on stage,

Oscar Winners Nominated at the 2018 Emmys

Oscar Winners Nominated at the 2018 Emmys
With more and more movie stars transitioning to television, the number of previous Oscar winners in contention at the Emmys continues to grow. Several Academy Award champs number among the 2018 Emmy nominees that were announced on Thursday, July 12.

One of the most recent Oscar victors in the Emmy lineup is Allison Janney, who won Best Supporting Actress earlier this year for playing an acid-tongued mother in “I, Tonya.” Now she contends for Best Comedy Actress for her small-screen role as another flawed matriarch in “Mom,” which has already brought her two Emmys in the supporting category (2014 and 2015). Janney is a perennial favorite of the TV academy, with 14 total nominations and 5 additional wins.

Janney’s predecessor in the Oscar Supporting Actress category, Viola Davis (“Fences” in 2016), missed out on a Best Drama Actress nom for “How to Get Away with Murder” this year. But she nonetheless showed up in Best Drama

Egot Explosion: John Legend and 4 Others Could Complete Showbiz Grand Slam on Emmy Night
The entertainment industry grand slam known as the Egot is so rare that only 12 people in history have completed it by winning an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony. And no calendar year has seen more than two new Egot winners.

But that could change this year, because Television Academy voters have nominated five different people who only need an Emmy to complete their Egot — and three of them could win at the same time if “Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert” takes home the award in the Outstanding Variety Special (Live) category.

Those three are John Legend, who starred in the title role of the Easter Sunday special on NBC, and Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, the composer and lyricist of the original 1970 musical.

James Corden Reenacts Cats, Evita, and More in an Epic Crosswalk the Musical Video

Seeing iconic musicals like Cats, The Phantom of the Opera, Evita, and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat performed live on Broadway is a serious treat for any musical theater-lover, but what about watching them on the sidewalk as you're on your way to work in the morning? Or from the window of a passing bus? That's what happened to a whole bunch of commuters in London recently when James Corden hit the streets for a memorable edition of his "Crosswalk the Musical" segment. This time around, The Late Late Show host took on "a cornucopia of songs" from legend Andrew Lloyd Webber, who actually pops up briefly for a cameo. Even if you're not a Broadway fan, seeing Corden hissing at dogs on the street while dressed as a giant cat is a gift in and of itself. Watch it above!
