The Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival will honor actor-author-director James Franco with an ally award on April 27 at the Olympia Theater in downtown Miami.
The festival runs April 26-May 5.
The “Twilight” team finally has earned some love – or loathing – from Team Razzies.
“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2” was picked as last year’s worst picture by the Razzies, an Academy Awards spoof that hands out prizes for Hollywood’s lousiest movies on the eve of the Oscars.
Barbra Streisand will perform at the Oscars next month, the first time she’s performed during an Academy Awards broadcast in 36 years.
Streisand won the Academy Award for best original song for “Evergreen” in 1977. She also sang the theme from “A Star Is Born” that night.
HBO Films will first air “Behind the Candelabra,” the cable film feature starring Michael Douglas as Liberace and Matt Damon as Liberace's lover Scott Thorson, on May 26.
HBO is promising a big show – as evidenced in a news release that begins: “Before Elvis, before Elton John, Madonna and Lady Gaga, there was Liberace: virtuoso pianist, outrageous entertainer and flamboyant star of stage and television. A name synonymous with showmanship, extravagance and candelabras, he was a world- renowned performer with a flair that endeared him to his audiences and created a loyal fan base spanning his 40-year career.”
The time is coming – maybe sooner than you expect – when you look at Daniel Radcliffe and don’t think “Harry Potter.”
The scene: Tehran’s Mehrabad airport, January 1980. Six U.S. diplomats, disguised as a fake sci-fi film crew, are about to fly to freedom with their CIA escorts. But suddenly there’s a moment of panic in what had been a smooth trip through the airport.
The plane has mechanical difficulties and will be delayed. Will the Americans be discovered, arrested, even killed? CIA officer Tony Mendez, also in disguise, tries to calm them. Luckily, the flight leaves about an hour later.
Do Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway and Helen Mirren need affirmative action to snare one of Hollywood’s favorite accessories, an Oscar, Emmy or Screen Actors Guild trophy?
In a society tilting steadily toward gender neutrality, the separate-but-equal awards that divide actors into one camp and actresses into another have the whiff of a moldy anachronism.
There’s a scene in “42” in which Jackie Robinson, the first black player in Major League Baseball, endures intolerably cruel racial slurs from the Philadelphia Phillies’ manager.
It’s early in the 1947 season. Each time the Brooklyn Dodgers’ first baseman comes up to bat, manager Ben Chapman emerges from the dugout, stands on the field and taunts him with increasingly personal and vitriolic attacks. It’s a visible struggle, but No. 42 maintains his composure before a crowd of thousands.
Returning to the mystical land of “The Wizard of Oz” took more than 70 years and several hundred millions dollars.
Disney released its highly anticipated prequel to the 1939 movie classic on March 8. Directed by Sam Raimi, “Oz the Great and Powerful” explores the origins of the wizard (James Franco) and the witches (Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz) in a three-dimensional Oz.
Diversity is king at the Sundance Film Festival – and queen, too.
