Tag: Adele (1-4 of 4)

EW's Jess Cagle goes backstage with Oscar winners -- VIDEO


What were Oscar winners Anne Hathaway, Adele, Jennifer Lawrence, Daniel Day-Lewis, Ben Affleck, Grant Heslov, and George Clooney thinking when they heard their names announced at last night’s ceremony? EW managing editor Jess Cagle was on the scene to find out — thankfully, with a video camera in tow.

Watch below to see his backstage interviews with some of the night’s biggest winners — and don’t forget that if you missed the show, you can watch the whole thing on, the ABC Player for iOS, and Hulu Plus through Wednesday night.


Adele to perform 'Skyfall' theme at Academy Awards -- BREAKING


It’s always a question: Will the Academy Awards telecast feature performances of the Original Song nominees?

Sometimes the answer is no, but this time … it’s looking like a yes.

Producers have indicated  the frontrunner in that category, Adele’s massively popular theme to the James Bond thriller Skyfall, will be performed live during the Feb. 24 ceremony.

While the other nominees weren’t mentioned in the announcement, it’s unlikely one nominee will be allowed to perform unless the other contenders are welcome too — especially since one of them is written by Oscar host Seth MacFarlane and another could be performed by Hugh Jackman.


Adele's 'Skyfall' theme deemed eligible for original song Oscar

There are 75 original songs that qualify for the Oscar this year, but really everyone has been waiting to hear about one.

Adele’s title theme to Skyfall surged to #1 on iTunes just days after debuting in October, but some feared the number by her and Paul Epworth would be ruled ineligible for the Oscar because it incorporates elements of the classic 007 theme, which of course is not original.

But the music branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences decided it was not a significant enough problem to boot it from the potential nominees, and included it without comment in its list of songs that could collect an Oscar on Feb. 24.


New 'Skyfall' trailer glows with Adele's theme -- VIDEO

The verdict is in: Adele’s James Bond theme is a hit.

When it premiered last week, my colleague Adam B. Vary declared “it does not disappoint,” and it seems people agree. It’s currently the #1 song on iTunes — not only in the United States but in many places all over the world.

It’s no wonder, then, that it is featured in the newest Skyfall trailer. The clip is silent save for Adele’s soulful voice as we once again see Daniel Craig’s Bond getting shot from atop a train. We’re also treated to quick actions shots of explosions, chases, a steamy shower scene and more 007 fun. Many of the quick cuts are recycled from the previous trailer, but Adele’s song certainly gives them a new feeling.
