The Golden Globes are decided by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, an organization made up of about 100 journalists.

Will Golden Globes continue their love affair with musicals? ‘Cats,’ ‘Rocketman’ and more sure hope so

Will Golden Globes continue their love affair with musicals? ‘Cats,’ ‘Rocketman’ and more sure hope so
The Golden Globes stan musicals, so if you break out into song you can usually count on a spot there even if you don’t get one anywhere else. Will that trend continue this year? There are a number of music-driven films with a shot including “Rocketman,” “Blinded by the Light,” “Yesterday” and yes, even “Cats.” Underestimate them at your peril.

Musicals are helped by the fact that the Golden Globes have separate categories for comedy/musical films and lead performers. But even with that in mind the Globes are friendlier to musicals than you might expect. In the last 20 years the Hollywood Foreign Press Association have given Best Picture nominations to “The Phantom of the Opera” and “Ray” (2004), “The Producers” (2005), “Across the Universe” and “Hairspray” (2007), “Mamma Mia!” (2008), “Nine” (2009), “Burlesque” (2010), “Into the Woods” (2014), “Sing Street” (2016), “The Greatest Showman” (2017) and “Mary Poppins Returns” (2018). Some of those had been dismissed by critics.

His reason for the surprising piece of wisdom? James said, “[A] leading man has a little time span [to work], he’s in and out.

Streaming: where to find Judy Garland films online

Renée Zellweger may excel as the Hollywood icon, but Garland’s own electric screen presence, in classics and curios alike, remains a thing of wonder

Is every October at the cinema going to turn up a new reason to reflect on the genius of Judy Garland? I shan’t complain if so. A year after Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born remake prompted our revisit to George Cukor’s unimprovable 1954 Garland-starring version, a new biopic puts the embattled icon back in the spotlight. Renée Zellweger delivers a gutsy, all-in tour de force in Judy – but if you want to remember the star through her own performances, the streaming realm turns up a variety of options, some more obvious than others.

The cast-iron classics are easy enough to find: in addition to A Star Is Born, the likes of The Wizard of Oz (if you’ve somehow made it to

Box Office: Why ‘Hustlers’ Soared While ‘The Goldfinch’ Flopped

  • Variety
Though Stx’s “Hustlers” and Warner Bros.’ “The Goldfinch” couldn’t be more different in terms of genre or style, the two new releases prove the divergent paths that mid-budget movies can take at the box office.

Both films arrived last weekend in an environment that has been increasingly hostile to anything that’s not of the superhero ilk or the umpteenth iteration of a longstanding franchise. “Hustlers” beat expectations with a solid $33.2 million debut, while “The Goldfinch” bombed with just $2.68 million. Those results are a sobering lesson as studios continue to scout for material that appeals to moviegoers interested in more than just blockbuster fare. “Hustlers” cost a moderate $20 million to produce, meaning the movie only needed to do modest business to turn a profit. “The Goldfinch” carried double that budget with a price tag above $40 million. Amazon co-financed the movie, which will help mitigate damages, but it still

Toronto Film Review: ‘Hustlers’

Toronto Film Review: ‘Hustlers’
— which is to say, it brings Champagne-rush sex appeal and neon-lit style to a wild case in which a crew of enterprising female dancers stripped several rich Wall Street clients of a fortune. Flashy, fleshy and all-around impossible to ignore, “Hustlers” amounts to nothing less than a cultural moment, inspired by an outrageous New York Magazine profile (which serves as the sturdy six-inch stilettos on which the movie stands) adapted by writer-director Lorene Scafaria at her most Scorsese, and starring Jennifer Lopez like you’re never seen her before.

“This whole country’s a strip club. You’ve got people tossing the money and people doing the dance,” Lopez’s Ramona tells Julia Stiles, who plays a version of nonjudgmental journalist Jessica Pressler, investigating the case. Practically everyone in “Hustlers” is playing some version of a real person, although Stiles is just about the only one whose casting doesn’t amount to a million-dollar makeover.

Barbara Stanwyck movies: 20 greatest films ranked from worst to best
She was one of the hardest working, most versatile actresses of the Golden Era of Hollywood, lauded by directors, costars and crew members for her professionalism and pleasant demeanor. During a time when most actors were typecasts, her most famous roles included a range of characters from society lady to sassy con artist, working class girl to helpless invalid and from heartbroken mother to one of the most infamous femme fatales of film noir.

Barbara Stanwyck was born Ruby Catherine Stevens on July 16, 1907, in Brooklyn, NY. Orphaned very young, Ruby dropped out of school at the age of 14, starting a series of odd jobs, eventually working for the telephone company. However, she had big dreams, and was soon a chorus girl in several shows, including the Ziegfeld Follies.
