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.

Do I love her or do I want to be her? An age old question which, if you listen closely enough, is the sound of baby gays growing their rainbow wings. This pondering pretty much sums up what it’s like to grow up queer. Especially from the 00s, 90s and earlier when gay representation was pretty minimal and the best you could do was project your own budding queerness onto anyone or anything in mainstream media.

Hocus Pocus Is Getting A Sequel, Just Not In The Way You’d Guess – New TV Movie, New Cast, New Book

Cinema Blend
Hocus Pocus Is Getting A Sequel, Just Not In The Way You’d Guess
BY JESSICA RAWDEN
Feb 1, 2018

Hocus Pocus is a Halloween classic for a certain faction of fans who love the dynamic between Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy in the film. Although the leading three witches have expressed an interest in coming back for the sequel, we found out a few months ago that Disney had plans to reboot Hocus Pocus as a TV movie, instead. On the bright side, there is a consolation prize for original Hocus Pocus fans. Although we won’t be getting that big screen sequel, Disney is releasing a new book just in time for the 25th anniversary of the original film. Read More

Stage Adaptation of Bette Midler Film THE ROSE Aiming for Broadway

Mister D: I just don’t know. It’s real cool seeing all these adapttions coming along from Bette Midler movies (Beaches, First Wives Club, Hocus Pocus, and now The Rose) but they could never hit the mark set by her. And different scores? Forget about it. The most it would be for me is a curiosity factor mixed in with some nostalgia.

Hocus Pocus star Doug Jones thinks a remake is “so unnecessary”

Hocus Pocus star Doug Jones thinks a remake is “so unnecessary”
BY TOM CHAPMAN
6 DECEMBER 2017

While fans of ’90s nostalgia can’t wait for another outing of Hocus Pocus, it seems that one of the original movie’s stars isn’t quite so keen.

After playing shuffling zombie Billy Butcherson in Kenny Ortega’s Halloween classic, actor Doug Jones has jumped on the anti-Hocus Pocus bandwagon.

As for the chances of the 57-year-old reprising his role as Billy, don’t count on it. Speaking to TooFab, Jones has slammed the idea of Disney’s TV remake.

“The idea of a reboot is like, I hope that was a misprint and I hope they’re talking about the sequel that we were talking about before,” complained Jones. “I hope someone got that wrong,” Read More

Celebrating singer & actress Bette Midler – Some Leftover Birthday Celebration

Egypt Today
Celebrating singer & actress Bette Midler
By: Nizar Ahmed Fri, Dec. 1, 2017

CAIRO – 1 December 2017: December 1 is the birthday of the enchanting singer and actress Bette Midler, whose Grammy-award winning music has sold nearly 30 million copies worldwide, while her film roles have earned her Oscar nominations.

Born in Hawaii on 1945, Midler grew up poor alongside three other siblings, and found joy in the nature around her. Midler studied drama at the University of Hawaii, and got her very first start in movies as an extra on 1965’s “Hawaii”. Soon after, she moved to New York City to get her start in show business, with her earliest stints being a singer at a nightclub. She also had a role on Broadway’s popular “Fiddler on the Roof”.

Bette Midler’s got a fashion problem plenty of ladies can relate to

Starts At 60
Bette Midler’s got a fashion problem plenty of ladies can relate to
STARTS AT 60 WRITERS NOVEMBER 16, 2017

Bette Midler

Bette Midler’s a mega-successful singer and actress, but no matter how successful you are, it seems you have the same little insecurities as everyone else.

The 71-year-old happily admits it herself.

Taking to Twitter, she revealed the fashion problem she has during winter … and anyone with assets like hers is sure to relate.

The good news for Midler is, chunky sweaters are in, for those countries about to see their cooler months. It’s a look that is being worn by many celebrities. Even better, you can wear them casually with a pair of jeans or dress them up a long skirt, with tights and boots.

Not that is would worry Midler anyway. She’s not known for following the fashion set anyway – she’s more of a statement kind of girl. Read More
