The 90th Academy Awards will take place Sunday, airing live on ABC from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California. But as everyone knows, the best part of the star-studded event is the pre-Oscars red-carpet coverage.
Yes, other awards shows—the Grammys, the Golden Globes, even the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards—make time to gawk and fawn over celebrities heading into the ceremony. But the Oscars takes the cake for always leaving a lasting impression on viewers.
The Academy Awards’s red carpet is known for having memorable appearances from Gwyneth Paltrow’s white Tom Ford cape dress to Emma Stone last year in a glistening Givenchy gown to Björk's swan dress. And with A-List talent like Gal Gadot, Lupita Nyong'o, Margot Robbie and Nicole Kidman expected to make appearances at the 2018 Oscars, the talk of the internet Sunday will more likely be the what the stars were wearing than who won what award.

“… nothing compares to the effect Van had at the darkest moments of the Cold War, calming a world that believed itself to be on the brink.” Stuart Isacoff, When the World Stopped to Listen: Van Cliburn's Cold War Triumph and Its Aftermath (Knopf)When a tall 23-year old Texan from a small town called Kilgore won the first ever International Tchaikovsky Competition in a big town called Moscow in April 1958, the impact was cataclysmic both musically and politically.
It was more than fabulous technique. Cliburn had played Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto and Rachmaninoff's Third Piano Concerto for his competition finale with such authentic love and romantic sweep that there was little doubt who was the best. But the jury hesitated, haunted by Stalin's shadow, until Soviet premiere Nikita Khrushchev, happy to show that the generous Russian soul was alive and well, said give it to the kid. It was a Cold War coup that significantly melted international relations, made Clibur..
On January 5, 2018, Americans for the Arts joined 17 national, state, and local arts service organizations as amicus curiae in the Pulphus v. Ayers case in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, urging reversal of a ruling that permitted Architect of the Capitol Stephen Ayers to remove a painting by St. Louis high school student David Pulphus from a Congressional Art Competition exhibit at the U.S. Capitol. Left unchallenged, this case could create bad legal precedence for many local and state arts or education agencies that install temporary art exhibits in government buildings.
Americans for the Arts believes that arts education and creative expression is a central right of every young person. A vital component of learning in and through the arts is connecting artwork to one’s self, one’s community, and the greater world, as well as presenting the work to real audiences. This type of quality arts learning is what happened in the case of David Pulphus. In alignment wi..

June 8, 2018MOSCOW — In the early 2000s, Mikhail Ugarov and Elena Gremina, playwrights who were husband and wife, were lamenting that Russian theater had grown ossified and distant from society’s problems a decade after the fall of the Soviet empire.
Then, sparked by an encounter with the Royal Court Theater of London, they set about trying to change that.
As part of a cultural exchange with the Londoners, they learned about documentary theater — the use of interviews, oral history and journalistic sources to create works for the stage. Ms. Gremina and Mr. Ugarov embraced the technique, brought it to Moscow and in 2002 established Teatr.doc, a theater company that presented shockingly..

Starting Monday, Tokyo Metro Co. will experiment with playing background music on their trains in a bid to provide a more comfortable travel experience for passengers.
The background music will be played on the recently introduced 13000 series trains on the Hibiya Line, for a limited number of trains that run between Naka-Meguro and Kita-Senju, the subway operator said.
A selection of classical music, including popular pieces such as “Clair de Lune” by Claude Debussy as well as relaxation music conducted by a composer named Mitsuhiro, will be heard on the trains. The 13000 series trains, which entered service in March last year, boast a high-quality stereo system. Although the upgraded system was initially intended for special events and automated speaker checks, a recent event sparked an idea to utilize the speakers on regular train services as well, a Tokyo Metro official said.
“A train conductor played some classical music (which is usually used for speaker checks) by accident durin..

Star Wars actor Mark Hamill has revealed that he’s been approached by ITV several times to take part in I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!
Speaking to Good Morning Britain’s Richard Arnold, who’d just returned from covering I’m a Celebrity in Australia, Hamill confessed: “I’ve been offered that show a couple of times. I said, ‘Do I have to leave the house for it?’”
Not to a galaxy far, far away – but it would involve living in a jungle in Australia and probably eating sheep’s anus, Mark.
Whether or not that prospect appeals to him, with a whole new trilogy of Star Wars films in the works, we can’t see Hamill getting stuck into those Bushtucker Trials anytime soon…
