OSCARS 2015 GOVERNORS AWARDS spike-lee-gena-rowlands-debbie-reynolds

SPIKE LEE, DEBBIE REYNOLDS AND GENA ROWLANDS TO RECEIVE ACADEMY’S 2015 GOVERNORS AWARDS

SPIKE LEE, DEBBIE REYNOLDS AND GENA ROWLANDS TO RECEIVE ACADEMY’S 2015 GOVERNORS AWARDS

 

The Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences voted Tuesday night (August 25) to present Honorary Awards to Spike Lee and Gena Rowlands, and the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award to Debbie Reynolds.

All three awards will be presented at the Academy’s 7th Annual Governors Awards on Saturday, November 14th, at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood & Highland Center®.

“The Board is proud to recognize our honorees’ remarkable contributions at this year’s Governors Awards,” said Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs. “We’ll be celebrating their achievements with the knowledge that the work they have accomplished – with passion, dedication and a desire to make a positive difference – will also enrich future generations.”

Lee, a champion of independent film and an inspiration to young filmmakers, made an auspicious debut with his NYU thesis film, “Joe’s Bed-Stuy Barbershop: We Cut Heads,” which won a Student Academy Award® in 1983.

He proceeded to blaze a distinctive trail with such features as “She’s Gotta Have It,” “School Daze” and “Do the Right Thing,” which earned him a 1989 Oscar® nomination for Original Screenplay. His work as a director ranges from the Oscar-nominated documentary feature “4 Little Girls” to such mainstream successes as “Malcolm X” and “Inside Man.”

Lee’s other feature credits include “Mo’ Better Blues,” “Jungle Fever,” “Crooklyn,” “He Got Game,” “25th Hour,” “Miracle at St. Anna” and “Red Hook Summer.” He currently serves as the artistic director of the graduate film program at NYU.

Rowlands, an original talent whose devotion to her craft has earned her worldwide recognition as an independent film icon, received Academy Award nominations for her lead performances in “A Woman under the Influence” (1974) and “Gloria” (1980), both directed by her husband and frequent collaborator, John Cassavetes.

She got her start on the New York stage and in live television in the 1950s and has appeared in 40 feature films to date, from “The High Cost of Loving” in 1958 to “Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks,” which she starred in earlier this year.

Her other notable films include “Lonely Are the Brave,” “Faces,” “Minnie and Moskowitz,” “Opening Night,” “Another Woman,” “Unhook the Stars,” “Hope Floats,” “Playing by Heart,” “The Notebook” and “Broken English.”

Reynolds, a Hollywood icon since she won hearts with her buoyant performance in “Singin’ in the Rain,” embarked on the role of a lifetime as a founding member of the Thalians, a charitable organization conceived and sustained by entertainers to promote awareness and treatment of mental health issues.

She served as the group’s president almost continuously from 1957 to 2011, adding numerous terms as board chair and frequently presiding over its annual fundraising gala. Her tireless efforts have enabled the Thalians to contribute millions to the Mental Health Center at Cedars-Sinai and to UCLA’s Operation Mend, which helps military veterans recover from the physical and psychological wounds of war.

Reynolds has appeared in more than 40 feature films, including “The Tender Trap,” “A Catered Affair” and “Mother,” and received a 1964 Oscar nomination for her lead performance in “The Unsinkable Molly Brown.”

The Honorary Award, an Oscar statuette, is given “to honor extraordinary distinction in lifetime achievement, exceptional contributions to the state of motion picture arts and sciences, or for outstanding service to the Academy.”

The Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, also an Oscar statuette, is given “to an individual in the motion picture arts and sciences whose humanitarian efforts have brought credit to the industry.”

Romeo Santos Tops Taylor Swift YouTube Views

Romeo Santos Tops Taylor Swift YouTube ViewsTaylor Swift may be the most famous singer living in New York City at the moment, but she can’t compete with native New Yorker Romeo Santos on YouTube.

The Latin music super star surpassed her in worldwide YouTube views with over 5 billion views to her 4.3 billion.

When you break down that figure by city, Santos’ 57 million views in New York City surpass Swift’s 32 million, despite the fact that Swift has been named the city’s “global welcome ambassador.”

While Swift is a pop music queen, Santos is the “King of Bachata,” a lively genre of Latin music. His biggest hit, “Propuesta Indecente,” has garnered around 700 million views on YouTube.

Last year, the Bronx-born singer sold out Yankee Stadium two nights in a row. Santos joined Paul McCartney and Madonna as one of a handful of artists who have sold out the stadium, which has a capacity of roughly 50,000.

El año pasado, la cantante nacida en el Bronx se agotó el Yankee Stadium dos noches seguidas. Santos se unió a Paul McCartney y Madonna como una de un puñado de artistas que han vendido el estadio, que tiene una capacidad de alrededor de 50.000.

FACEBOOK CANNOT DEMAND REAL NAMES SAYS GERMAN COURT

Tweet about this on TwitterShare on FacebookShare on Google+Share on LinkedInPin on PinterestEmail this to someoneShare on Reddit

Facebook Cannot Demand Real Names, Says German CourtAn arm of the German government has ruled that Facebook may not change users’ screen names to their real names. They may no longer demand identification of the users. This is in direct opposition to recent moves by the company to rid itself of non-real or non-confirmed identities. The company used to identify certain last names as fakes and force the users to identify themselves. This is now illegal in Germany.

German regulator orders Facebook to allow pseudonyms

Such a move could set a precedent by which users in other countries could create similar lawsuits. Simply defy Facebook’s directives that are in violation of the rules, and then sue them, and point to the ruling. A chain reaction may not be hard to imagine, but it is also not necessarily imminent.

Facebook HQ is in Ireland

Facebook continues to maintain that its headquarters are in Ireland and that it should only have to abide by Irish law. Increasingly its monitoring and tracking of user activities could place it at odds with European civil rights and freedom advocates.

The German government has an issue with the website not allowing users to sign up with false credentials. It is a violation of privacy, they feel, for Facebook to demand real, identifiable people. The question will be whether Facebook will react by rescinding its policy in places where it will not be tolerated, or will other social networks

POP STARS Using Dating Apps To Promote Their Music

Pop Stars Using Dating Apps To Promote Their MusicPop Stars Like Madonna, Zedd and Jason Derulo Now Using Tinder, Match And Other Dating Apps To Promote Their Music

Dating apps have become a popular outlet for artist promotion, Mariah Carey created a Match.com profile to premiere the music video for her single “Infinity,” and Zedd and Jason Derulo utilized Tinder’s swipe right function to promote an album and a video. With the influence of commercial radio on the decline and the Internet and mobile technology providing a myriad ways for listeners to listen to and discover new music, record labels and their artists are getting more creative in their efforts to promote their latest offerings. PlentyOfFish has taken a different approach to the trend by actually marketing the app itself by featuring it in various music videos. The dating service has shown up in videos by Britney Spears, Kesha, Lady Gaga and Flo Rida. The service also worked with Gaga in promoting her concert tour.

Nicki Minaj Is Using Grindr to Promote The Pinkprint Tour

The North American Pinkprint Tour runs from July 17 to Aug. 19, hitting 19 cities and featuring Meek Mill, Tinashe, Rae Sremmurd, and DeJ Loaf as supporting acts. Following the tour, Minaj plays at Billboard’s inaugural Hot 100 Music Fest at Jones Beach. Tickets are available at www.livenation.com. Head here to see the full lineup.

Hollywood Is Hooking Up With Tinder, Grindr for Movie, TV Projects

Earlier this month, Twentieth Century Fox hooked up with Tinder to market the comedy “Spy,” starring Melissa McCarthy and Jude Law, which opens later this week. Instead of a date, users were given the chance to “swipe right” (Tinder-speak for you’re interested) for free tickets to special screenings of the movie around the country. “It completely sold out in every market,” Fox Studios president of marketing Marc Weinstock told TheWrap. “Tinder was a perfect match for our audience. They’re very strong in the 17-34 [demographic]. What could be better for a first date than a hilarious comedy?” Film Makers, Labels & Artist….NEED APP PROMO@ RAWDOGGTV Viral Marketing | APP Promo Contact: ☎ 305-490-2182 gerald@rawdoggtv.com
