Here’s a round-up of entertainment news from around the web…
Jay-Z and The Bullitts will score The Great Gatsby. Though the soundtrack list is yet to be confirmed, reports say it may include songs from Prince and Lady Gaga. Hmmm…
Wait, what? People.com reports that Prince Charles bests Prince William on being the snappier dresser. “The 64-year-old soon-to-be grandfather reigns at No. 8 on GQ ‘s annual best dressed list – well ahead of dashing William, who came in at 37.” Ok, but William has it all over Charles in the dimples department.
No big shock here. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby will indeed appear on the E! reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians. “Like so many Kardashian fans, we love it when this close-knit family gets even bigger,” says network president Suzanne Kolb. “We look forward to sharing the joy as they prepare for more diapers, more bottle and without a doubt, more fabulous baby wear.” And bigger ratings.
Check out this pic of Crystal Harris’ (now Crystal Hefner) gorgeous pink wedding gown, crafted by Romona Keveza. I love it.
David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook won four awards at the Capri, Hollywood Film Festival, including the festival’s Film of the Year honor, organizers announced today. The 17-year-old event, which often heralds Oscar success, also honored Beasts of the Southern Wild, The Iceman and The Impossible.
More on the Academy extending the voting by one day, which Paula wrote about yesterday. Apparently, it’s not just older voters who are having trouble with the new e-ballots. ”There’s even some young farts like myself that are having problems,” said documentary branch member Morgan Spurlock, 42, who had issues entering a password. “It’s not like it’s the first time I’ve ever logged on to a computer.” I must admit, passwords are the bane of my existence, so I totally get that.
Melanie Votaw had the great opportunity to interview Cindy Williams last year and also sit in on a round table with Penny Marshall. The Laverne & Shirley actresses learned plenty about timing and comedy from Jack Klugman, who passed away in December. ”Watch The Odd Couple,” Marshall would tell Williams. “That’s the chemistry.”
Adam Lambert had some harsh words to say about Les Miserables, including what the rest of us have been thinking: “Why not cast actors who could actually sound good?” Russell Crowe didn’t disagree, but had this to say about Lambert saying the vocals would have benefited from pre-recordings in a studio: “Sure, it could have been sweetened,” said Crowe. “[Director Tom] Hooper wanted it raw and real, that’s how it was.”
TVLine has a really nice slideshow package with the scoop on returning favorites, including Beauty and the Beast (one of my favorites), The Big Bang Theory, Justified, Pretty Little Liars and lots more. I know how much work goes into these slideshows, so kudos to the crew over there.
Over at Rolling Stone, Eddie Vedder reflects on working to get the West Memphis Three released from prison, noting that it just shows “if you’ve got the guts and the staying power, great things can happen.” Wise words.
