love-me-like-you-do-music-video

Ellie Goulding takes a page out of Ed Sheeran’s playbook and puts on her dancing shoes much like how the “Thinking Out Loud” singer did for his visual. Both artists show off their contemporary SLASH ballroom moves.

Love Me Like You Do” is the second official music video from Fifty Shades of Grey, following on the heels of The Weeknd’s “Earned It” which debuted yesterday. Since The Weeknd snagged one of the movie’s stars, Dakota Johnson, to appear in his clip, I was expecting Jamie Dornan to show up in Goulding’s. Sadly, I’m left disappointed and the only images we see of him are clips from the movie. In fact, Ellie’s new video acts like a movie trailer with half the time devoted to incorporating film footage.

Whether the film adaptation of the best-selling erotic novel becomes a box office hit, I’m pretty certain the soundtrack will be a smash. Everything I’ve heard so far is fantastic. Ellie’s “Love Me Like You Do,” co-written by Max Martin and Tove Lo is destined to be a radio hit. Check out the visual below.

kingsman-the-secret-service

Is it me or is 20th Century Fox totally pimping out Taron Egerton in their latest promos? The first couple focused mostly on the premise of the comic book adaptation. But lately, there’s definitely more visuals of the 25-year-old Welsh actor without his shirt. Not that I’m complaining.

Kingsman: The Secret Service is based on the comic book written by Mark Millar. It tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid (Egerton) into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.

Matthew Vaughn dropped out of directing X-Men: Days of Future Past to direct this film which boasts an impressive cast and plenty of cameos. Michael Caine, Colin Firth, Samuel L. Jackson, Lady Gaga, Elton John, Adele and David Beckham all appear in the movie.

If Egerton’s buff little bod isn’t enough to lure you in, the array of slick blazers might entice you. Seriously, I want every sport coat featured in the trailer. Kingsman: The Secret Service hits theaters nationwide on Friday, February 13, 2015. Check out the trailer below.

the-weeknd-earned-it-video

If the movie adaptation is remotely as racy as this music video, expect a titillating time.

The Weeknd just debuted the music video for “Earned It,” the lead cut off the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack. It could certainly give Beyonce’s “Partition” video a run for its money as the sexiest cabaret-set visual ever.

Women dressed in S&M-themed attire dance seductively for the Canadian crooner. One of said women is Dakota Johnson herself who plays Anastasia Steele in the erotic thriller. She’s tied up like a chandelier hanging from the ceiling.

Other artists featured on the soundtrack include Jessie Ware, Sia, Ellie Goulding, Annie Lennox and Beyonce. Check out The Weeknd’s video below. Fifty Shades of Grey hits theaters on February 13.

2015-glaad-media-awards

The nominees for the 26th annual GLAAD Media Awards have just been released. The event recognizes and honors media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the LGBT community and the issues that affect their lives. Ceremonies will be held in L.A. on March 21 at the Beverly Hilton and in New York City on May 9 at the Waldorf Astoria New York to announce the winners.

“It’s been a remarkable year for equality, and nowhere is that more evident than in the visibility LGBT people have gained across media. This year’s nominees, including expanded categories in Outstanding Comedy and Drama Series, reflect the widening diversity of LGBT images and storylines that are closing the gap to full acceptance,” said GLAAD President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis in a press release.

It truly has been a remarkable year, especially in television. Just 10 years ago in 2005, just eight comedies and 17 dramas were considered for the annual awards. This year, there are 52 comedy series and 83 dramas with regular LGBT characters. How To Get Away With Murder, The Fosters, Game of Thrones, Transparent, Looking and Glee were just a few that were singled out.

On the movie front, The Imitation Game, Pride & The Skeleton Twins earned nods. Sam Smith and Mary Lambert were just a couple acts honored in the music categories. Check out all the nominees below including ones in the journalism field.

2014-15-galeca-dorian-awards

The Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association (GALECA) is like the Hollywood Foreign Press Association but just queer. The LGBT group just revealed the winners at their annual Dorian Awards, honoring the best in television and the movies. I’m proud to say that I’m one of the over 100 critics and entertainment journalists associated.

For the past two years, GALECA’s choice for Best Film (12 Years A Slave, Argo) has gone on to win the Oscar. Will this year’s winner Boyhood do that same? I have a feeling it might. Taking the honors for Best Actor and Best Actress are recent Golden Globes winners Eddie Redmayne and Julianne Moore respectively. Over on the television front, Amazon’s Transparent was the big winner, taking home five awards including Best Series.

In addition to the typical serious categories, the Dorians honor the campiest films and shows as well. Into The Woods and Jane The Virgin (which I love) out-camped the competition. The association also highlights quality shows that deserve more recognition. Pride and HBO’s Getting On were honored in the movie and television category respectively. Check out all the winners below.

tom-hardy-leaves-suicide-squad

DC Comics’ upcoming Suicide Squad boasts an all-star cast that includes Jared Leto, Will Smith, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne and Jesse Eisenberg. A few days ago, that list included Tom Hardy. It appears though, the 37-year-old is backing out of the project.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals Hardy will no longer play Rick Flagg due to scheduling issues. Reportedly, Alejandro González Iñárritu’s The Revenant co-starring Leonardo Dicaprio, is filming longer than initially expected. In addition, Hardy is committed to a grueling worldwide promotional tour for his next film, Mad Max: Fury Road. Find out who the studio is reportedly wooing to replace him below.

87th Academy Awards: Nominations & Snubs

In: Donovan, Movies
87-academy-awards-nominations

For the first time ever, the Academy Awards unveiled all 24 categories and their nominees live. Chris Pine and directors Alfonso Cuarón and J.J. Abrams woke up early to make the announcement.

Birdman and The Grand Budapest Hotel led this year’s class of Oscar films with nine nominations apiece, including nods for Best Picture and Best Director. Close behind was The Imitation Game with eight. Making a big splash late in the game was Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper with six tying Boyhood. Eastwood, himself though, failed to pick up a Best Director nod.

Over on the acting front, it was pretty much status quo but with a couple of surprises. Meryl Streep extended her own record by scoring her 19th Oscar nomination. Robert Duvall at 84-years-old became the oldest male to nab an acting nomination. Now on to the snubs.

transformers-age-of-extinction

As is customary on the eve before the Academy Award nominations are announced, the Razzies reveal their choices for the worst Hollywood had to offer during the past year. Perennial nominee Adam Sandler once again earns a slot along with Kirk Cameron, Shaquille O’Neal and Kellan Lutz to name a few.

“Hollywood was not happy with box office returns for 2014, their lowest-grossing year in recent history. Despite a handful of high-grossing hits, there were way more major misses — movies based on recycled premises and re-worked concepts that were already tired a decade or more ago, the cinematic equivalent of re-treaded tires.” – Razzies press release

Leading the pack with seven nominations is the latest Transformers movie, Transformers: Age of Extinction. It’s in the running for worst picture, worst screenplay, worst sequel and worst screen combo. Kelsey Grammer’s performance earned him a worst supporting actor nomination, while Michael Bay could get worst director and Nicola Peltz worst supporting actress.

In a first for the awards show, the committee is putting the spotlight on commendable work. A brand new category called The Razzie Redeemer Award will honor former offenders for turning things around. For example, Ben Affleck who gave us Gigli revived his career thanks to Argo and Gone Girl. Check out all the nominees below.
