How would you categorize ‘A Star Is Born’ at the Golden Globes?

Warner Bros.’ decision to submit “A Star Is Born” in drama instead of comedy/musical at the Golden Globes has many scratching their heads and asking — to borrow one of Ally’s (Lady Gaga) songs — “Why Did You Do That?” Well, we kind of know why they did it, but what is the “correct” placement for this film? The Hollywood Foreign Press Association can still overrule the submission, but if you were making the call, where would you put “A Star Is Born”?

Even before we saw the first frame of the trailer for “A Star Is Born,” everyone assumed it would go into comedy/musical at the Globes, which is where the previous two versions competed and cashed in. The 1954 version won acting honors for Judy Garland and James Mason, while the 1976 rock remake won five Globes, including Best Comedy/Musical Picture and acting awards for Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson.

‘A Star is Born’ to top the charts: It’s the biggest movie soundtrack in 3 years

‘A Star is Born’ to top the charts: It’s the biggest movie soundtrack in 3 years
A Star is Born” has been bested by the comic book adaptation “Venom” for two weekends at the box office, but Tom Hardy is no match for the movie musical on the Billboard charts. The “Star” soundtrack, which was released on October 5 along with the movie, has topped the Billboard 200 albums chart. And it’s the biggest week for a soundtrack in more than three years.

The album featuring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper led the way with 231,000 equivalent album units, which are calculated by combining traditional album sales with individual track sales and online streams. Despite the recent success on the charts for soundtracks like “The Greatest Showman” and “Black Panther,” this is the biggest week for a soundtrack since “Fifty Shades of Grey” topped the Billboard 200 in February 2015 with 258,000 album units.

Rumour: Lady Gaga wanted for Ursula role in The Little Mermaid

Fresh from earning rave reviews alongside Bradley Cooper in the acclaimed A Star Is Born, The DisInsider is claiming that Lady Gaga is wanted for the role of the villainous sea witch Ursula in Walt Disney PicturesThe Little Mermaid.

The live-action remake of the 1989 animated classic is being directed by Rob Marshall (Mary Poppins Returns) from a script by Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Secret Service).

So far, there’s been no official word from Disney on casting, although Spider-Man: Homecoming and The Greatest Showman’s Zendaya has been linked to the role of Ariel – with the singer and actress expressing her interest in the part last month.

After appearing in the likes of Machete Kills and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, as well as American Horror Story: Hotel, Lady Gaga scored her first leading feature film role in A Star Is Born, which has seen her tipped for Oscar success.

‘Bad Times at the El Royale’ Film Review: Chris Hemsworth and Jon Hamm on a Dazzling ’70s Night

‘Bad Times at the El Royale’ Film Review: Chris Hemsworth and Jon Hamm on a Dazzling ’70s Night
A mysterious group of strangers. An unusual location, filled with secrets. A flashback structure that reveals unexpected backstories for every major character. “Bad Times at the El Royale” plays a heck of a lot like the TV series “Lost,” and that’s probably not a coincidence: Writer-director Drew Goddard used to write for the show, and he’s filled this new crime thriller with many of the tricks that made “Lost” so great — and many the flaws that made it fall apart by the final season.

The El Royale Hotel is situated on the border of Nevada and California, and it’s a grand old place with lots of quirk and history. It’s the 1970s, and a priest named Father Flynn (Jeff Bridges), a salesman named Laramie (Jon Hamm), a singer named Darlene and a drifter who signs the ledger as “F— You” (Dakota Johnson) are all checking in for the evening.

Golden Globes Surprise: ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and ‘A Star Is Born’ Won’t Compete as Musicals

Golden Globes Surprise: ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and ‘A Star Is Born’ Won’t Compete as Musicals
In what universe is “The Martian” a musical or comedy, but “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “A Star Is Born” are not? The Golden Globes, of course.

Fox submitted Ridley Scott’s space epic to the Globes in 2015 as Best Musical/Comedy, and it won. This year, two of the year’s most-vaunted musicals won’t compete in that category at all. “A Star Is Born” qualifies as a musical, as its many original songs are designed to advance the emotions of the characters in the story, but Warner Bros. is going for Drama.

So is Fox’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” which runs through a concert repertory of Queen songs lip-synched by Rami Malek, effectively channeling Freddy Mercury. This pits Emmy-winner Malek (“Mr. Robot”) in a movie directed by scandal-tainted Bryan Singer against much stronger Best Actor contender Bradley Cooper — a three-time Oscar nominee who directs himself in a strong dramatic performance as

With ‘Shallow’ hitting the charts, will ‘A Star Is Born’ rule the Grammys and Oscars next year?

With ‘Shallow’ hitting the charts, will ‘A Star Is Born’ rule the Grammys and Oscars next year?
Not only did “A Star Is Born” open to a healthy $42.6 million at the box-office this past weekend. But the fourth version of the musical showbiz staple originally done in 1937 has allowed first-time director and leading man Bradley Cooper to score his first ranking on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

“Shallow,” the film’s signature song performed by both Cooper and his co-star Lady Gaga, currently sits at No. 28 after being boosted by 8.3 million U.S. streams and 58,000 downloads sold during the week ending on Oct. 4, as confirmed by Nielsen Music. It ranks No. 1 on the Digital Song Sales chart. While Gaga is accustomed to such heights – it is her sixth time that she has topped that chart and is her 21st top-40 hit – Cooper is reveling in a whole new sideline as a vocalist-musician in the guise of his country singer character Jackson Maine.

Why Venom Should Get a Sequel

George Chrysostomou wants to see a sequel to Venom…

Critics and fans are once again divided around a film in 2018. We’ve already witnessed the high and lows of this new phase of apparent out of touch reviewers, with The Last Jedi receiving fan backlash whilst The Greatest Showman is poured over by the general public. Venom seems to be reaching somewhat of the same situation, with critics claiming it’s a film from the early 2000s, as audiences fill the cinemas with their popcorn and an enthusiastic attitude for the latest Tom Hardy offering.

I have many thoughts myself on Sony’s attempt to launch a new Marvel Universe. Where it falls down in some places, it offers enough charm and storytelling to still make it a fun ride. It certainly has its flaws and I understand why many critics have ripped the symbiote to shreds. The fact is though,

‘Dancing with the Stars’ Week 3: See who’s dancing what (and how they’ll make you cry) for Most Memorable Year

‘Dancing with the Stars’ Week 3: See who’s dancing what (and how they’ll make you cry) for Most Memorable Year
Are you ready to get emotionally manipulated by dances? Because it’s Most Memorable Year Night on “Dancing with the Stars” next week, so you better be. Returning to one episode a week, Monday’s show will feature the remaining 11 celebrities interpreting a significant — and 98 percent sentimental — year in their lives.

Some of these are obvious. Mary Lou Retton chose 1984, the year she won the Olympic all-around gold, become the first American gymnast to do so. DeMarcus Ware picked 2016, when he won the Super Bowl with the Denver Broncos. Evanna Lynch is reliving 2006, the year she was cast as Luna Lovegood in “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.” She’s also dancing to “Hedwig’s Theme” from the films. Milo Manheim chose this year because of “Zombies” and “Dancing with the Stars,” and because, you know, he’s just 17 years old.
