Lady Gaga would be the 14th woman to win the Best Original Song Oscar

Lady Gaga would be the 14th woman to win the Best Original Song Oscar
Lady Gaga (“A Star Is Born”) is in a heated Best Actress Oscar race with Glenn Close (“The Wife”) and Olivia Colman (“The Favourite”), but even if she comes up short there, chances are she’ll still leave Oscar night a winner. Gaga is considered a near lock to prevail in Best Original Song with “Shallow,” which would make her just the 14th woman to win the category.

Best Original Song was first introduced at the 7th Academy Awards, honoring the films of 1934, but like nearly all of the non-gendered categories, it’s been dominated by men. Dorothy Fields was the first woman to win the category for co-writing “The Way You Look Tonight” from “Swing Time” (1936) with Jerome Kern, but it would be another 32 years before a second woman triumphed; Marilyn Bergman won for penning “The Windmills of Your Mind” from “The Thomas Crown Affair” (1968) with Michel Legrand and her husband Alan Bergman.

Pearl Jam’s Best Bootlegs: The Ultimate Guide

Pearl Jam’s Best Bootlegs: The Ultimate Guide
Most major rock acts go on tour and play the same exact set every night, sometimes even repeating their stage banter verbatim like they’re reading from a script. Pearl Jam have always taken a different path. Their setlist is like the complete Pearl Jam catalog on shuffle where any song can surface at any point. Back in the 1990s, it caused their hardcore fans to feverishly trade bootlegs on cassette tapes and burned CDs, but in 2000 the group began selling pristine recordings of every show. Wading through the hundreds

‘Forgive Me’ Shingle Archer Gray Champions Diverse Voices Through Film Production

  • Variety
By Addie Morfoot

A little less than a decade ago, Amy Nauiokas decided it was time for a change. The former Barclays Stockbrokers CEO and managing director wanted to make the transition from a career in finance to a career in the entertainment industry. So she did.

In 2010 Nauiokas founded and launched Archer Gray, a production, media investment and venture capital company that develops and produces narrative films, television shows and documentaries. In 2013 she invited veteran indie producer Anne Carey to join the New York-based shingle as president of production. Together, the duo has backed George Tillman’s “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete,” Bill Condon’s “Mr. Holmes,” Michael Moore’s “Where to Invade Next” and Mike Mills’ “20th Century Women.” Archer Gray has also been involved in a handful of Broadway productions including “Seminar” and Tony-winner “Once.”

The shingle is repped at Toronto by Marielle Heller’s “Can You Ever Forgive Me?,

‘Teen Spirit’ Film Review: Elle Fanning Sings – Boy, Does She Sing – in Indie Musical

  • The Wrap
‘Teen Spirit’ Film Review: Elle Fanning Sings – Boy, Does She Sing – in Indie Musical
Teen Spirit,” which premiered on Friday at the Toronto International Film Festival, has a scene in which our mild-mannered heroine, an aspiring singer Violet, performs a song with such verve and power that everyone who knows her is left with mouths agape.

They’re all thinking exactly the same thing: “We didn’t know she had it in her.”

And “Teen Spirit” might also have that effect on its viewers — because while we’ve seen great things in the past from Elle Fanning, who plays Violet, we’ve never seen her sing and perform like this. Like the characters on screen, we didn’t know she had it in her.

Fanning’s performance is one of the most surprising things about “Teen Spirit,” a goodhearted and entertaining film about stardom in the “American Idol” era that also marks the directorial debut of Max Minghella. The actor is now following in

‘USS Callister: Black Mirror’ interviews: Cristin Milioti, Jimmi Simpson and more exclusive chats [Watch]

Last year Netflix scored Emmy victories for Best TV Movie and Best Movie/Mini Writing for the “Black Mirror” episode “San Junipero.” Can it pick up more hardware this season with its acclaimed episode “USS Callister”? Gold Derby recently spoke with stars Cristin Milioti and Jimmi Simpson, as well as cinematographer Stephan Pehrsson. Scroll down and click on their names below to be taken to their full interviews.

“This was a dream role. I would do this role for the rest of my life,” reveals Milioti. She plays Nanette, a tech-savvy new employee at a video game company. When head coder Robert (Jesse Plemons) becomes smitten with the new hire he creates a digital clone of her to live like a slave in his own personal copy of the game. His game resembles classic “Star Trek,” but he rules it cruelly as the captain.

Cristin Milioti Admits She Had Never Seen ‘Star Trek’ Before ‘Black Mirror: USS Callister’ Role

Cristin Milioti Admits She Had Never Seen ‘Star Trek’ Before ‘Black Mirror: USS Callister’ Role
A version of this story about Cristin Milioti first appeared in the Miniseries/Movies issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine.

Charlie Booker’s anthology series “Black Mirror” covers a broad range of styles and subjects over the course of a typical season, but Cristin Milioti was attracted to the “USS Callister” episode because it covers a big range in a single hour.

The episode starts out as the story of Nanette, a mild-mannered coder who is hired at a tech firm with a socially awkward founder (Jesse Plemons) who is dismissed or even derided by the rest of the company.

But in a classic “Black Mirror” twist, it shifts from an indie office drama to a tense adventure in a virtual “Star Trek”-style world where Plemons’ character reigns as an evil Captain Kirk of sorts, trapping his hapless employees in an environment where they have to indulge his every whim or suffer gruesome fates.

Cast This: Charles Manson

  • JoBlo
Before we came to learn more about the project, it was initially said that Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time In Hollywood would revolve around the Manson Family murders, a series of horrific attacks committed by members of the Manson Family under the instructions of Charles Manson during the summer of 1969. Although those murders will still serve as a backdrop to the film, the main story of Once... Read More...

Katrina Lenk on Her Tony-Nominated Role in ‘The Band’s Visit’
The actress Katrina Lenk is the face of “The Band’s Visit,” the musical now up for 11 Tony Awards including best new musical, which it’s tipped to win. That’s Lenk on most of the show’s advertising images, striking a balletic pose in the desert, and the actress (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”) — who plays the viola, fronts a band (Moxy Phinx) and has Broadway credits including “Indecent” and “Once” — is also the top contender in this year’s lead actress in a musical category. She sat down with Variety to talk about her role, her youthful shyness and whether she’d want to play a superhero someday.

“The Band’s Visit” has been doing great business on Broadway since it opened in November. What’s the audience response been?

Here’s the thing: We try really hard to have this delicate balance of noticing the audience but not noticing them.

Dude, we thought you were dead. (And also, how did you find the gang in Mexico?)

In the video posted above, Tandy discovers Mike alive and well as the two duet “Falling Slowly” from “Once.” That horrible haircut is back too — courtesy of the prankster, of course.

Now virus-free(!), Mike rejoins the group this weekend, which “throws Todd into a spiral,” per Fox’s official description. Todd’s (Mel Rodriguez) a busy boy in this episode, as he also shares an emotional rollercoaster with Erica (Cleopatra Coleman) over the course of the half-hour, which is titled “Designated Survivors.”

Yes, That's James Eckhouse as the Judge on Days Of Our Lives!

Amid all the drama of Gabi’s trial, eagle-eyed viewers will have noticed a familiar face presiding over the whole thing — actor James Eckhouse is back on Days Of Our Lives playing Judge Sims again! The character actor is best known for his role as Brenda and Brandon’s father, Jim Walsh, on the classic Fox teen drama Beverly Hills, 90210, which he played from 1990 until 1998. He has also made appearances in other primetime shows like Once And Again, Judging Amy, Las Vegas, and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation as well as movies like Junior, Big, and The Avengers. And Days isn’t Eckhouse’s first appearance in daytime, because the very first credit on his IMDb page is a 1982 episode of NBC soap Another World where he played “Costume Clerk!” Eckhouse’s judge presided over Sami’s murder trial but he looks a little suspicious of Hope’s testimony here!

Where You've Seen This Actress Before Her Badass Black Mirror Episode

  • BuzzSugar
Image Source: Netflix Now that Black Mirror has returned with its fourth season, you should prepare yourself for one wild ride. One of the best episodes is "USS Callister," a parody of the original Star Trek . . . with a Black Mirror twist, of course. The hero of the piece is a woman named Nanette Cole, who may look like a tiny, wide-eyed ingenue, but is actually a brilliant badass, played by the wonderful Cristin Milioti. The actress is perhaps best known for playing the titular mother on CBS's long-running sitcom How I Met Your Mother. She became so popular with viewers that her storyline was be a big part of why fans were so unhappy with the final season and series finale episode.

The Top Ten Musicals Of The 21st Century

In cinemas on Boxing Day is the musical extravaganze The Greatest Showman. The film stars Hugh Jackman alongside an all-star cast, including Michelle Williams, Zendaya, and Zac Efron. To celebrate the release, we take a look back at the top ten musicals of the last 17 years.

Chi-Raq (2015)

By no means a traditional musical and at the same time proof of just how much musicals have evolved. Spike Lee’s Chi-Raq is an adaptation of Aristophanes’ Ancient Greek comedy Lysistrata, which simultaneously manages to weave in a progressive commentary regarding domestic gun violence in the United States. Though set in the present day, what is most interesting about Chi-Raq is how faithfully it adapts its source material, maintaining the original Greek names, the inclusion of Samuel L. Jackson as the chorus, and dialogue that rhymes almost all the way throughout. Not since Baz Luhrman’s 1996 Romeo + Juliet has Classical theater been given a treatment like this,
