TOP 10: LOOKING FOR OSCAR GLORY AFTER 1991 (Bette Makes The List Twice)

Awards Circiut
TOP 10: LOOKING FOR OSCAR GLORY AFTER 1991
By Sam Coffey – Apr 4, 20180

ACCA 1991As voting continues in ACCA 1991, Awards Circuit celebrates the many great films of 1991, perhaps one of the most historic years in Oscar history.  A number of talented performers, directors, writers, and craftsmen were nominated (or won!) for their great achievements but have somehow not found their way back to the Dolby Theatre.  Mercifully, some actors who remained on this barren list for ages eventually found Oscar glory again, with Robert De Niro landing his first nomination since “Cape Fear” with “Silver Linings Playbook” and Laura Dern doing the same in 2014 with “Wild” following up her first nomination for “Rambling Rose.”  Unfortunately, too many winners and nominees from 1991 have passed away, failing to get back to Oscar since this year, including Jessica TandyJack Palance, cinematographer Adrian Biddle, and shockingly Jonathan Demme.

The Oscar for best original song is a garbage category – Bette Midler Proves It In One Segment

The Washington Post
The Oscar for best original song is a garbage category
By Dan Zak
March 2 at 1:42 PM

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT: Phil Collins grasps his Oscar in 2000; Robin Williams performs “Blame Canada” the same year; Mariah Carey, left, and Whitney Houston perform “When You Believe” in 1999; and, from left, Peter Allen, Christopher Cross, Burt Bacharach and Carole Bayer Sager claim their shared prize in 1982.

Remember when Ann Reinking lip-synced — and danced to — “Against All Odds,” the No. 1 hit by Phil Collins from the movie of the same name, at the Academy Awards in 1985? No?

It was nearly five minutes of theatrical fog, odd lunges and wide-eyed emoting, and Collins had to watch the slow-motion oddity from his seat. The academy wanted a “variety” of entertainers to perform the nominees for best original song, so it didn’t enlist the English rocker, then at the peak of his career.

Andrew Lloyd Webber Explains His Juiciest Memoir Stories: Bette Midler, Barbra Streisand, Patti Lupone, Princess Di

Billboard
Andrew Lloyd Webber Explains His Juiciest Memoir Stories, From Princess Diana’s Splits to Barbra Streisand Walking Out on ‘Cats’
3/2/2018 by Mickey Rapkin

Kirsten Ulve
Famed composer Andrew Lloyd Webber’s memoir, Unmasked, hits stores March 6, and it’s a doorstop at 528 pages. It’s also brutally honest, with the man who created Evita and Cats recounting his days at Oxford (he basically got kicked out) through to the opening night of The Phantom of the Opera. The 69-year-old explains some key takeaways from the tome.

Princess Diana Did The Splits Backstage At Cats

At a performance of Cats, Princess Diana and Prince Charles went backstage after the show to say hello to Lloyd Webber, and he ended up getting more than he expected. “I think Charles said, ‘I can’t believe how these dancers do these sorts of things,’ and [Diana] said, ‘Well, it goes this way…’ and she did the splits. A little bit of the royal personage, more than you normally would have seen, was revealed.” Read More

Barbra Streisand Says She Was Miscast In Hello Dolly

Just Jared
Barbra Streisand Says She Was Miscast In Hello Dolly
WED, 28 FEBRUARY 2018

Barbra Streisand is speaking out to clarify a quote that was attributed to her in which she supposedly said she felt miscast in the movie Funny Girl.

The legendary entertainer and Oscar winner really was talking about her role in the 1969 movie Hello, Dolly!

Barbra felt the role should have been played by an older woman. She was just 27 when the movie was released. In comparison, Bette Midler just played the role on Broadway at the age of 71 and Bernadette Peters, who turns 70 this week, just replaced her in the production. Read More

BetteBack April 30, 1975: Bette Midler Is Back Rashy And Gimmicky (‘Clams’)

NEW YORK (AP ) — A strenuous comeback bid is being made in “Bette Midler‘s Clams on the Half Shell Revue” by one of the most highly publicized maybe-stars of showbiz.

Flashy, brassy and gimmicky, the production has moved into Broadway’s Minskoff Theater for a run until June 21. Management asked reviews be delayed until after the Thursday performance, but to make deadlines most of the press attended the late starting, 2 1/2 hour fray on Wednesday. Read More

By SERGEI KLEBNIKOV
July 11, 2017

The site uses a variety of sources to come up with a celebrity’s total value of assets held, including film or TV salaries, business investments, sponsorships, real estate deals, as well as any liabilities that can be found, before taking out a final estimate for taxes.

Celebrating Gamechanging Jewish Women In Hollywood with an In-Depth Panel at The Braid

Broadway World
Celebrating Gamechanging Jewish Women In Hollywood with an In-Depth Panel at The Braid
by BWW News Desk Jan. 23, 2018

Jewish women are, and always have been, change agents in Hollywood. Jewish Women’s Theatre (JWT) will present a performance and panel that looks at the evolving role of these smart, talented, aggressive and influential women on Sunday, February 11 from 10 am to noon at The Braid, JWT’s performance and art space, 2912 Colorado Avenue, Santa Monica.

The morning program will begin with a performance about Hedy Lamarr, an Austrian-born actress who not only had a successful movie career, but also invented a radio guidance system that enabled Allied torpedoes to reach their targets without being jammed by the Axis powers. Louis B. Mayer referred to her as “the world’s most beautiful woman.” But that’s not all. Her contributions to technology were recognized with her induction into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2014. Read More
