Guess who will sing ‘The Place Where Lost Things Go’ at the Oscars? Hint: She is quite divine

We were glad to hear that the Motion Picture Academy decided to showcase performances of all five best song nominees during its 91st ceremony that airs February 24 on ABC. That announcement came in response to a backlash took place when it was originally decided that only “Shallow” from “A Star Is Born” and “All the Stars” from “Black Panther” would be peformed on air.

But there was one big question mark. It was revealed that Emily Blunt, who stars as the magical nanny in “Mary Poppins Returns,” didn’t want the pressure of performing “The Place Where Lost Things Go,” written by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, that she sings in the film. We had some fun guessing which Disney-adjacent vocalist would tackle the ballad, predicting everyone from Lin-Manuel Miranda, who plays Jack the lamplighter in the sequel, and Angela Lansbury, who has a cameo as a balloon lady,

Yes, all 5 Oscar-nominated songs will be performed during the telecast – but who is subbing for Emily Blunt?

That’s settled. When a backlash took place after the Motion Picture Academy announced that only two nominated original songs would be heard during the ceremony that airs February 24 on ABC – “Shallow” from “A Star Is Born” and “All the Stars” from “Black Panther” – those in charge changed their tune and will feature all five.

Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga will do a duet on “Shallow,” Jennifer Hudson will perform “I’ll Fight” from the documentary “Rbg,” songwriters David Rawlings and Gillian Welch will share duties on “When a Cowboy Trades His Spurs for Wings” from “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.” Meanwhile, no word yet on whether Kendrick Lamar and Sza, who wrote “All the Stars” from “Black Panther,” will participate.

But in the announcement, we also learned that “The Place Where Lost Things Go” from “Mary Poppins Returns” will be sung by a special mystery person filling in for the sequel’s magical nanny,

Taylor Swift’s ‘Reputation’ Film Shows Why She’s One of the All-Time Greats

Taylor Swift’s ‘Reputation’ Film Shows Why She’s One of the All-Time Greats
Taylor Swift’s triumphant Reputation tour gets immortalized the way it deserves in her new Netflix concert film, which premieres on the streaming service on New Year’s Eve. (Just in time for “New Year’s Day”: that’s our Taylor, always thinking conceptually.) It shows off the biggest and best tour yet from one of pop’s all-time great live performers — Swift goes for stadium-rocking spectacle, without toning down any of her songs’ one-on-one emotional intimacy.

Oscar Flashback: Best Original Songs of the late 2000s, including ‘Falling Slowly,’ ‘Jai Ho’

Oscar Flashback: Best Original Songs of the late 2000s, including ‘Falling Slowly,’ ‘Jai Ho’
This article marks Part 24 of the Gold Derby series analyzing 84 years of Best Original Song at the Oscars. Join us as we look back at the timeless tunes recognized in this category, the results of each race and the overall rankings of the winners.

The 2005 Oscar nominees in Best Original Song were:

“In the Deep” from “Crash

“It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp” from “Hustle & Flow

“Travelin’ Thru” from “Transamerica

Won: “It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp” from “Hustle & Flow

Should’ve won: “Travelin’ Thru” from “Transamerica

Let’s first get two things out of the way in 2005 Best Original Song – one, “In the Deep” is as dreary and heavy-handed as the picture it’s featured in and two, the sublime “A Love That Will Never Grow Old” from “Brokeback Mountain” should have had this prize in the bag. That it wasn’t even

‘Mary Poppins Returns’ Floating $4.8M Opening Wednesday, 96% Bigger Than ‘Greatest Showman’ – Update

  • Deadline
Thursday Am Update/Writethru: Disney’s Mary Poppins Returns is coming in around an estimated $4.8M for Wednesday after industry midday projections pushed the film significantly higher in the $7M-$8M vicinity. The sequel to the 1964 Oscar-winning musical led all titles yesterday. Disney will be reporting their official opening day figure later this morning.

Box Office analysts were seeing pre-sales around mid-day, which puffed up estimates, with evening business tapering off. The fall-off in projections for Mary Poppins Returns has nothing to do with the movie, rather the time of year. Moviegoers and families are still distracted by pre-holiday activities. There was only 6% of K-12 schools off yesterday, and remember musicals leg out: Fox’s The Greatest Showman made 92% of its $174.3M domestic B.O. last year after Christmas.

Taylor Swift’s ‘Reputation’ Tour: The 10 Best Surprise Moments

Most stadium concerts have little space for improvisation, especially pop spectaculars that utilize dancers, confetti cannons, video screens and inflatable props. These types of shows are almost always rehearsed down to the smallest detail as if they were Broadway musicals. On Taylor Swift’s 2018 Reputation tour, however, she decided to reward her hardcore fans by reserving one slot a night for a surprise acoustic song. It always came on the B stage shortly after “Shake It Off” or “Dancing With Our Hands Tied.”

A very busy Thanksgiving box office weekend rolls on as ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ adds $21.5 million from 4,017 screens on Black Friday. The Disney sequel is now estimated to finish the weekend with a $85 million five-day opening, which would make it the second-best Thanksgiving opening ever behind only the $93 million record set by “Frozen” in 2013.

In second is MGM’s “Creed II,” which will set a record of its own with the highest opening for a live-action Thanksgiving release. The top five Thanksgiving openings among all films are all animated Disney films, as families have flocked to see the studio’s offerings during the holiday weekend on an annual basis. But MGM will take the live-action record from another Disney film, “Enchanted,” which opened to $49 million in 2007, by earning an estimated $56 million five-day launch from 3,441 screens.

6 ‘unorthodox’ ways Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper could perform ‘Shallow’ at the Oscars

6 ‘unorthodox’ ways Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper could perform ‘Shallow’ at the Oscars
As if there were any doubt, Lady Gaga confirmed to our sister site Variety in its latest cover story that she “one hundred percent” plans to perform “Shallow,” the No. 1 hit anthem from “A Star Is Born,” at the Oscars if it’s nominated for Best Original Song. Hardly shocking since the tune is a smash and Gaga is, you know, a pop star who’s no stranger to the Oscar stage, having performed a “Sound of Music” medley in 2015 and her nominated song “Til It Happens to You” in 2016.

What was less clear was if her “A Star Is Born” other half Bradley Cooper would join her for the duet. While some actors are game to perform nominated songs at the Oscars (see: Amy Adams crooning “Enchanted” tunes in 2008), others have said, “Thanks, but no thanks,” like Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, whose “La La Land” tracks “City of
