Foxx and the creators of "Soul" talk about jazz music's prominent role in upcoming film.
“Moonlight” and “If Beale Street Could Talk” director Barry Jenkins looks back at Envelopegate two years later.
PyeongChang is the first Olympics where all figure skaters have the option to use music with vocals. So prepare to hear a lot of "Moulin Rouge" — soundtracks are supreme — but also Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, and "Despacito."
Ed Sheeran plays an 11-year-old smooth-singing jazz musician who steals Lisa’s heart. At first, Lisa thought he was arrogant, but once she heard him sing she was smitten.
Set in contemporary multi-cultural Paris, “The Eddy” revolves around a club, its owner, the house band, and the chaotic city that surrounds them, per Netflix.
While Emma Stone politely turned down Jacob Staudenmaier’s date request after he created a "La La Land"-inspired video, she sent him and his date flowers.
James Corden kicked off The Late Late Show with a scene from La La Land in which he inserted himself into Emma Stone’s role. Corden sang about La La Land winning the Oscar for Best Picture, and then immediately losing it to Moonlight. Corden started by singing, “Was this a mixup?
Just moments after the Oscars broadcast came to an end, host Jimmy Kimmel joined Kelly Ripa backstage and gave his thoughts on what may be the biggest debacle in the history of the Academy Awards. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were presenting the award for Best Picture, the final award of the evening, when they awarded the Oscar to La La Land instead of Moonlight. The envelope … I don’t know if they had the wrong envelope or if there was some kind of envelope malfunction,” Kimmel said.
The Best Picture mistake heard round the world was just one of many memorable moments from the 89th Academy Awards. In one of the most shocking moments in the history of the Oscars, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway incorrectly announced La La Land as the Best Picture winner. It’s easy to see now that there was a problem as Beatty fumbled with the envelope and delayed the announcement, but at the time, everyone assumed he was just joking around.
Going into this year’s Oscars, two things seemed most at stake: whether La La Land would dominate the awards, and whether President Trump would dominate the show itself. It turned out that Warren Beatty dominated the proceedings in the end. As the night’s final presenter, along with Faye Dunaway, the two declared La La Land the Best Picture winner, but as the producers and cast for that film assembled onstage, it was announced that, no, Moonlight had actually won.
A la the dream sequence that forms the lengthy epilogue of La La Land, the Oscar-darling film’s music supervisor, Steven Gizicki, isn’t quite sure that he isn’t living in a dream right now.
Jonah Hill and Emma Stone have set a date… to start filming their new Netflix sitcom! Maniac, based on a Norwegian series of the same title, is a darkly comic fantasy that leaps back and forth between a man committed to a mental institution and his dreamworld where he becomes everything from a millionaire playboy surrounded by bikini-clad groundskeepers to a daring, Hitler-killing war hero. Rubicon TV produced the series for the Norwegian small screen back in 2014, and also had a hand in Netflix’s first original series, Lilyhammer. Cary Fukunaga, another Netflix alum who directed their Golden Globe-nominated movie, Beasts of No Nation in 2015, will helm the entire 10-episode series.
Here are three of the day’s buzziest celebrity stories. 1. Rihanna is starring as Psycho victim Marion Crane in the A&E drama series Bates Motel. The show posted a teaser for the upcoming final season, which gives a brief first look at Rihanna’s character.
In 2009, at age 21, Emma started to “feel overwhelmed by the energy of Hollywood,” so she moved to NYC. But the actress still found that being a celebrity was stressful. Although Emma has gotten better at dealing with her anxiety, she still has panic attacks. The last meltdown she had was while filming Birdman in 2014. Emma recalled being pitched La La Land by director Damien Chazelle: “My voice was gone, and I was struggling to get through [Cabaret on Broadway], and the idea of doing another musical was like, “You’ve got to be out of your mind.'” But Damien persisted, and eventually Emma signed on … and the rest is history.
Long before Ryan Gosling was cutting a rug in "La La Land," he was a young man wearing Hammer pants (the style made famous by MC Hammer) as the only boy in a young dance troupe. Gosling joined The Graham Norton Show on Friday where, fortunately for us, Norton had footage of him starring in one of the troupe’s numbers. Gosling doesn’t necessarily regret his performance in the clip, but the outfit?
The 74th Golden Globe Awards had its fair share of awkward moments, as most awards shows do, but this time it was awkward right out of the gate. Jimmy Fallon got off to a bumpy start hosting the show when he came out to find the teleprompter not working. Jimmy announced the teleprompter fail to the audience and then said, “I can think of something.
Many of the winners from Sunday’s 74th Golden Globe Awards gave memorable speeches. When Ryan Gosling won for Best Actor in “La La Land,” he joked about being confused for Ryan Reynolds. He then thanked his partner, Eva Mendes, for her support while he was making the film, saying, “My lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second, and trying to help her brother fight his battle with cancer.” Gosling dedicated his award Mendes’s brother who passed away.
Sure, La La Land and The Night Manager won a lot of movie and TV awards, but Sunday night’s Golden Globes belonged — as pretty much everything does now — to Donald Trump. Host Jimmy Fallon felt obliged to throw a couple of Trump references into his opening monologue. He called the Globes “one of the few places where America still honors the popular vote,” and wondered what would have happened if Game of Thrones’ petulant, sadistic King Joffrey had lived: “Well, in 12 days we’re going to find out.”
It’s never too late to give thanks, and that’s just what Ryan Gosling did. At Monday’s Palm Springs Film Festival, Ryan accepted the Vanguard Award on behalf of his film "La La Land." “I wish I could have said this in person, but I’d like to thank Debbie Reynolds for her wonderful career of work,” he said, to applause.
Like most successful actors, La La Land star Emma Stone has had auditions that didn’t go too well. She told Jimmy Fallon about some of those experiences.
