Midler, a longtime friend of composer-lyricist Marc Shaiman, will sing the song originally performed by Emily Blunt in “Mary Poppins Returns.” The song, by Shaiman and his lyricist partner Scott Wittman, is one of five nominees for best original song.
The Academy teased this on Jan. 31 by tweeting, “Spoiler Alert: It will be performed by a surprise special guest.”
This was in the aftermath of a Variety report about the original plan, which was to perform only two of the five nominated songs (“Shallow” from “A Star Is Born” and “All the Stars” from “Black Panther”). The backlash resulted in the Academy’s decision to perform all five nominated songs, including the one from “Mary Poppins Returns.”
Shaiman is expected to accompany Midler on piano.

“As a victim of a hate crime who has cooperated with the police investigation, Jussie Smollett is angered and devastated by recent reports that the perpetrators are individuals he is familiar with,” said defense lawyers Todd S. Pugh and Victor P. Henderson in a statement obtained by Deadline.
He has now been further victimized by claims attributed to these alleged perpetrators that Jussie played a role in his own attack,” the Chicago-based attorneys add of the supposed assault in the early hours of January 29. “Nothing is further from the truth and anyone claiming otherwise is lying.” (Read The Full Statement Below)

Dwayne Johnson shared the news Friday on Instagram, saying production just ended on the “most challenging film” he’s ever done.
“Hobbs & Shaw is officially wrapped,” Johnson wrote. “Easily the most challenging film I’ve ever produced and starred in, however based on the fans’ insanely hyped ‘break the internet’ reactions to our first trailer — this film is also shaping up to be my most rewarding.”
The wrestler-turned-box office heavyweight went on to praise co-star Jason Statham for joining him on the adventure.
“A Huge bald and brotherly Mahalo to the man who trusted me and our chemistry and ‘pushed all his chips in’ to make something bad ass and fun for the fans. My uso @jasonstatham,” he added.
The spinoff, directed by David Leitch is set two years after the events of The Fate of the Furious,
“I believe and stand by @JussieSmollett,” Mahoney tweeted on Sunday. “Keep your head up. @EmpireWriters @EmpireFOX“
I believe and stand by @JussieSmollett . Keep your head up. @EmpireWriters @EmpireFOX

It appears that most of the comments on Mahoney’s tweet are not as optimistic regarding Smollett’s account of what occurred on the night he says he was jumped by two men in Chicago.
As it turns out, Smollett knew the men, who are Nigerian brothers, and one was his personal trainer. The men, who were originally persons of interest and then suspects, were released from police custody after telling cops that Smollett paid them to stage the attack, per CNN.
Smollett’s attorneys deny the attack was a hoax.
“According to Trump, the border suddenly constitutes a national emergency. Or, as he might spell it in a tweet, ‘the Berder Cornstidutes a Nertional Ederdency!!'” Oliver said, mocking Trump’s misspellings in tweets.

The racism in “The Birth of a Nation” aside, D.W. Griffith stages the assassination of Abraham Lincoln as a true national tragedy, and he does so in ravishing display, staging a scene everyone already knows but hadn’t yet visualized on film, using never before seen intercutting and sweeping wide shots as John Wilkes Booth dives from the balcony to provide ravishing tension and action.

The Last Bandoleros, “Enamorado”
A bilingual love song, “Enamorado” mixes the ramped-up romance of Latin pop ballads with the hooks and harmonies of Southwestern roots music. YouTube singing star Alexander Stewart co-wrote the track and released his own version last summer, but “Enamorado” sounds like a Last Bandoleros original, with all four bandmates contributing
With a production budget hovering at $170 million (Fox says tax incentives lowered costs that were once north of $200 million) and tens of millions more in marketing and distribution costs, executives at rival studios estimate “Alita: Battle Angel” will need to gross roughly $500 million globally to get out of the red. Insiders at Fox say the break-even number is closer to $350 million. It’s too early to completely write off the film. But even though the movie has made $130 million worldwide so far, it’s unlikely that “Alita” will reach those box office heights.

It’s a year in which the Academy seems less interested in the quality of films than in the numbers they can attract to watch their Oscar telecast on Feb. 24th. According to Variety, a 30-second ad on the awards show can cost as much as $2.6 million if the show brings in high ratings. That’s the problem. The ratings
