    Idle Motivation
    I’m at Radio City Music Hall for the 2005 Tony Awards, billed as Broadway’s biggest night, though I always thought that was Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber. I have never even seen a Tony show before. When God was doling out showbiz DNA, I must have missed out...
  • The jet set will land at the Globes

    The jet set will land at the Globes
    Say what you will about the Golden Globes -- They're a reliable predictor for the Oscars! They're an empty gesture in celebrity ego stroking! -- the fact remains: You can't swing a dead cat at the ceremony without hitting someone on Hollywood's A-list....
  • 'War' Backers Lack Will to Succeed

    'War' Backers Lack Will to Succeed
    Something doesn't smell right with "Charlie Wilson's War." I'm not particularly concerned with the specific facts it has left out of its telling. But what has been left in feels compromised and dodgy. The film glides along on the polish provided by the...

    Globes are not afraid of the dark
    "ATONEMENT," director Joe Wright's epic romantic drama of redemption starring Keira Knightley and James McAvoy, won the 65th annual Golden Globe award for best motion picture drama Sunday evening, capping off a night overshadowed by the crippling...
  • 'My Dad' Bumps 'Baby Borrowers' at NBC

    NBC will still unveil a show about parents and kids on Monday, Feb. 18 -- just not the one it was planning to have. The network has taken the unscripted series "The Baby Borrowers" off the schedule for now and will replace it with the family...
  • The big picture

    Pictures at a Revolution: Five Movies and the Birth of the New Hollywood By Mark Harris Penguin, 490 pages, $27.95 By today's standards, the Academy Awards ceremony of April 10, 1968, was a tame affair. No one denounced a war or declined an Oscar to...
  • Former 'Friend' David Schwimmer tries deeper waters

    Former 'Friend' David Schwimmer tries deeper waters
    AFTER the insane fame and wealth of "Friends," David Schwimmer is back to what he considers to be his essence -- trying to make it as a working actor-writer-director, albeit one who never again has to worry about making it. It's a nice life, if also an...
  • 'Faces of America'

    'Faces of America'
    Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. - who was in the headlines last year when he was arrested for trying to get into his own house - helps a number of familiar faces, from Meryl Streep and director Mike Nichols to Eva Longoria and figure-skating...
  • Many movies travel 'Rocky' road by including iconic songs

    A boxer in training races up the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and holds his arms aloft in triumph when he reaches the top. And the soundtrack swells with the song "Gonna Fly Now." The tune is legendary now, but at the time -- 1976 -- it served...
  • Playbills speak to history

    I went to the theater Sunday afternoon, and, as is my custom, took the Playbill to my office afterward and added it to a shelf in my bookcase that has been housing a steadily growing family of Playbills for the past 50-some years. They pretty much chart...
  • Once You're in the Club, Mr. Dogg Is Simply Snoop

    I am not a club guy. Never had a clubhouse. Wasn't in the glee club, chess club or math club. Never joined a frat, lodge or brotherhood. No country club, no Rotary club, no Kiwanis club. I've never held a golf club and, to my knowledge, I have never...
