Outlook THE NEWS SCROLL 11 JANUARY 2018 Last Updated at 4:08 PM Four H`wood celebrities who powered through awards-show play-off music

Los Angeles [U.S.A], January 11 : “Lower the music, it’s taken 25 years. Give me a minute,” said Guillermo Del Toro, after winning his first ever Golden Globe for Best Director at this year’s star-studded ceremony.

He totally admonished the orchestra for trying to cut short his acceptance speech. But, if you thought that he was the only celebrity to power through the awards-show play-off music, then you are wrong.

Here are four Hollywood stars, who ‘shut’ the music which was ruining a fairytale moment in their career: Read More

John Legend and Bette Midler did what few before have done at the Tony Awards this year. Their Tony wins — Legend as a producer of Best Revival of a Play winner Jitney and Midler for Best Actress in a Musical for Hello, Dolly! — put them one award away from the elusive EGOT. That — in case you don’t know, or have never watched 30 Rock — is an acronym for “Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony.” Read More

Tony Awards 2017: Nominees, predictions

Tony Awards 2017: Nominees, predictions

Last year around this time, I asked director George C. Wolfe to comment on the remarkable racial and ethnic diversity of the past season. His answer — “Each season has its own magical arbitrariness” — deserves to hang on the wall of any fool straining to make eternal generalizations about Broadway on the basis of the shows that made it to Tony time.

So here we are approaching Sunday’s 71st annual Tony Awards. And, despite all such cautions, we’re looking at an extremely competitive season of extraordinary variety and trying not to declare that, finally, Broadway is a place where provocative American artists — even a few women playwrights and directors — are not just employed but embraced. As recently as the 2014-15 season, all four best play nominees were British. And last year, the best director of a play category (and the entire year) was dominated by boundary-stretching European men and one outstanding New Yorker, Joe Mantello. Read More

History was made during the 89th Academy Awards after “La La Land” was awarded “Best Picture” when, in fact, the Oscar should have gone to “Moonlight.”

Warren Beatty, who presented with Faye Dunaway, took responsibility for the gaffe, saying they were given a card with the winner for best actress — Emma Stone for “La La Land.” Read More

A Complete History of the Completely Insane Things That Have Happened at the Golden Globes

golden%20globes%20moments

you want to see A-list celebrities earnestly thanking their agents, you watch the Oscars. If you want to see the performance that launches a million Beyoncé GIFs, you watch the Emmys. If you want to see drunken movie stars doing completely ridiculous things while accepting trophies of dubious provenance, then you watch the Golden Globes.

It really is the Mariah Carey’s New Years Eve performance of awards shows: things could go horribly awry at any moment, they often do, and when they do you will never ever forget them. Blame it on the booze, blame it on the loose rules of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, blame it on Miss Golden Globe. This has always been, and will continue to be, the ceremony that we rubberneck hoping that there will be a NASCAR-like disaster. And so often we are rewarded. Read More

For a night known as Hollywood’s most notorious open-bar gala, the Golden Globes ceremony remains (somewhat) shrouded in mystery.

Most viewers probably don’t even know who presents it (the Hollywood Foreign Press Association), how many voting members it has (only about 90), or what qualifies them to pass judgment on movies and television. Yet movie fans and awards mavens continue to take the Golden Globes seriously as a precursor to the Academy Awards, since some of the Globe honorees will indeed go on to win Oscars. Read More

Time to borrow your roommate/best friend/significant other/random work colleague’s Netflix password. It’s a new year, and there’s endless new television to binge watch. We’ve picked out just a few shows that you need to check out, each with big name Jewish talent attached.

Riverdale

John L. Goldwater, the late Jewish creator of “Archie and Pals,” might have raised an eyebrow had he seen the trailer for the new dark and sexy television reboot of his beloved comic book series. On January 26, The CW is bringing back the whole gang, only this time it’s a live-action drama with a whole lot more mystery, and some very steamy teenage romance. Riverdale has never been more intriguing. Read More
