Tonight is the 85th Academy Awards, and for all intents and purposes it should be a good one. Look at all those serious films, and the one movie by Quentin Tarantino!

That has got to bring up a lot of mixed emotions for you.
But couldn’t you have picked like, a Whitney Houston song or something? Maybe a little Patsy Cline?

The screen adaptation of Broadway smash Les Miserables has its first trailer, wherein but one cast member–Anne Hathaway as prostitute Fantine–is heard to sing.
