Kennedy Center Honors: Our top 50 recommendations who need to be chosen include Dick Van Dyke, Liza Minnelli, Jessica Lange, Bette Midler

Mister D: Ok, I admit that I’m prejudiced, but this list could be whittled down in seconds for me. My standards are high, well in some things, and some of these people don’t really belong on this list. Gold Derby Kennedy Center Honors: Our top 50 recommendations who need to be chosen include Dick Van Dyke, Liza Minnelli, Jessica Lange, Bette Midler Chris Beachum April 11, 2018 6:00AM The next recipients for the Kennedy Center Honors will be announced in the late summer, often around Labor Day. The all-star event is held each year in the nation’s capital during the first weekend in December and then airs on CBS as a two-hour special after Christmas. Each year, the selection committee chooses five entertainment veterans from a variety of fields – film, television, popular music, theatre, and the fine arts (dance, opera, classical music). Selected artists are almost always over 50 and generally are 60 and beyond. The first recipients in 1978 were singer Marian Anderson, actor and dancer Fred Astaire, choreographer George Balanchine, composer Richard Rodgers and conductor Arthur Rubinstein. The most recent honorees in 2017 for the 40th anniversary program were dancer Carmen de Lavallade, singer Gloria Estefan, singer LL Cool J, producer and writer Norman Lear and singer Lionel Richie. But there are a number of notable performers missing from the honors roll. Our photo gallery features 50 entertainers who deserve to be selected soon. For our purposes a person must be at least 60 years old to be in our gallery. We are not going to include the retired Doris Day and Gene Hackman as well as the reclusive Woody Allen since attendance at the event is mandatory. Tour through our photos and sound off in the forums about who you think should be selected soon. 1. Dick Van Dyke Van Dyke is just an Oscar away from EGOT status. He is a five-time Emmy Award winner for “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” “Van Dyke and Company,” and “The Wrong Way Kid.” He won a Tony Award for “Bye Bye Birdie” (1961) and a Grammy Award for “Mary Poppins” (1964). Van Dyke is a member of the Television Academy Hall of Fame and received the Screen Actors Guild life achievement award in 2013. 2. Liza Minnelli Minnelli is very close to EGOT, having never won a Grammy Award before. She won a Tony Award for “Flora the Red Menace” (1965), an Oscar for “Cabaret” (1973), and an Emmy for “Liza with a Z” (1973). The daughter of legendary entertainer Judy Garland, other films have included “The Sterile Cuckoo” (1969, her first Oscar nomination), “New York, New York” (1977), and “Arthur” (1981). 3. Denzel Washington Washington is the only African-American with two Academy Awards for acting (“Glory,” 1989; “Training Day,” 2001). His other Oscar nominations were for “Cry Freedom” (1987), “Malcolm X” (1992), “The Hurricane” (1999), “Flight” (2012), “Fences” (2016, producing and acting), and “Roman J. Israel, Esq.” (2017). He also won a Tony Award for the same role in “Fences” (2010). 4. Gladys Knight The “Empress of Soul” started her career in 1952 on Ted Mack’s “Original Amateur Hour” TV show. Her group Gladys Knight and the Pips joined Motown in 1966 and became one of the top recording artists of the 1960s and 1970s with such hits as “I Heard It Through the Grapevine,” “If I Were Your Woman,” “Neither One of Us,” and “Midnight Train to Georgia.” The six-time Grammy winner was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996. 5. Mick Jagger Whether he gets selected by himself (like Paul McCartney) or with his group The Rolling Stones (like The Who and Led Zeppelin), this honor is long overdue. The lead singer was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with his band in 1989. He was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2003. Their lengthy list of hit singles has included “Satisfaction,” “Get Off My Cloud,” “Ruby Tuesday,” “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” “Brown Sugar,” “Wild Horses,” “Angie,” and “Start Me Up.” 6. Jessica Lange Lange is just one notch away from EGOT. She is a two-time Academy Award winner (“Tootsie,” 1982; “Blue Sky,” 1994) among her six nominations. She is a three-time Emmy champ (“Grey Gardens,” 2009; “American Horror Story,” 2012; and “American Horror Story: Coven,” 2014). Lange won a Tony Award in 2016 for “Long Day’s Journey Into Night.” Other films in her career have included “Frances,” “Sweet Dreams,” “Crimes of the Heart,” “Cape Fear,” and “Big Fish.” 7. Alan Alda Alda has established himself as a triple threat on television, on stage, and in films. He won five Emmy Awards for the legendary comedy series “M*A*S*H” spread out over acting, directing, and writing (the only person to prevail in only three fields). He also took home a sixth Emmy for his role on “The West Wing” and was inducted into the Television Academy Hall of Fame in 1994. He’s been nominated at the Oscars (“The Aviator,”), Grammys (“Things I Overheard While Talking to Myself,” 2008), and three times at the Tony Awards (“The Apple Tree,” 1967; “Jake’s Women,” 1992; “Glengarry Glen Ross,” 2005). 8. Bette Midler Midler was a big hit right out of the gates when she won Best New Artist at the Grammy Awards in 1974. It was the first of three Grammys along with three Emmys for her variety specials and a Tony Award in 2017 for “Hello, Dolly.” That just puts her an Oscar away from EGOT, and she has competed at those awards twice as a leading actress for “The Rose” and “For the Boys.” 9. Harrison Ford Ford is the biggest box office star in American history but still hasn’t had much of an awards career but did receive an Oscar nomination for “Witness” (1985). He was awarded the American Film Institute life achievement in 2000 and the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes in 2002. His film career has included “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” “Working Girl,” “Regarding Henry,” “Patriot Games,” “The Fugitive,” “Air Force One,” and “42.” 10. Reba McEntire McEntire is a Country Music Hall of Fame member who has been one of the most popular singers and performers in the 1980s and beyond. She has had the most CMA Award nominations (49) and ACM Awards nominations (45) of any female artist.

McEntire has had a successful TV show with “Reba” (2001-2007) and was widely acclaimed for her Broadway debut in “Annie Get Your Gun” (2001). 11.

He is a nine-time Tony Award winner for his performances in “Seesaw” and “My One and Only,” for his direction of “Nine,” “Grand Hotel” and “The Will Rogers Follies” and choreography of “A Day in Hollywood/A Night in the Ukraine,” “My One and Only,” “Grand Hotel” and “The Will Rogers Follies.” 12. Betty White White is one of the favorite comedic performers in TV history and was inducted into the TV Academy Hall of Fame in 1995. She has won five prime-time Emmy Awards for “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “The Golden Girls,” “The John Larroquette Show” and “Saturday Night Live” plus a Daytime Emmy for “Just Men.” 13. Burt Bacharach Bacharach has composed hundreds of songs in his lengthy career, many of them popular hits. He is a three-time Oscar winner for his original song and score in “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” and original song in “Arthur.” He is a two-time Grammy champ for “Cassidy” and “I Still Have That Other Girl” plus an Emmy winner for his 1971 variety special. 14. Diane Keaton Keaton is an Oscar-winning actress (“Annie Hall,” 1977) who has been primarily working in films since the early 1970s. Her career has included “The Godfather,” “Reds,” “Marvin’s Room,” “Baby Boom,” “Father of the Bride,” “The First Wives Club” and “Something’s Gotta Give.” She was the 2017 recipient of the American Film Institute life achievement award. 15. Arturo Sandoval The Cuban-born Sandoval is one of the greatest trumpet players in music history. He defected to America in 1990 while performing with previous KCH recipient Dizzy Gillespie. He is a 10-time Grammy winner, Emmy winner and recipient of the 2013 Presidential Medal of Freedom. 16. Cynthia Gregory Gregory is one of the most famous American prima ballerinas of recent decades. She first became well known in San Francisco as a teenager before joining the American Ballet Theatre in 1965. She has had roles in “Giselle,”” “Sleeping Beauty,” “Coppelia,” “Don Quixote,” “The Eternal Idol” and “At Midnight.” 17. Bob Newhart Newhart has proven to be one of the most beloved comedians in American history since the early 1960s. In fact he won at the 1961 Grammy Awards as Best New Artist and for Album of the Year. He was inducted into the TV Academy Hall of Fame in 1993 for his roles on “The Bob Newhart Show” and “Newhart.” He won his only Emmy Award in 2013 for a guest role on “The Big Bang Theory.” He was the 2002 recipient of the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor at the Kennedy Center. 18.

BetteBack February 28, 1996: Bette Midler Would Be The Perfect Host For The Grammys

Elyria Chronicle Telegram February 28, 1996 12934892_500294156828087_2018146111_n The night may belong to those in the music world, but a comedy star will be presiding over it again. Ellen DeGeneres will serve as host of the 38th annual Grammy Awards, as CBS televises the ceremony tonight from Los Angeles’ Shnne Auditorium. Among the scheduled performers are Mariah Carey and Boyz n Men (rendering their Grammynominated collaboration “One Sweet Day”), as well as fellow nominees Mariah Carey, Hootie & the Blowfish, Alanis Morissette and TLC. Presenters are slated to include Tim Alien, Gloria Estefan, Chris Isaak, “Friends” regular Lisa Kudrow and Vanessa Williams. Michael Greene, president and chief executive officer of the Grammy-presenting Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, continues to deem it very worthwhile to have a comedian steering the audience through the show. ”Because ifs live, anything can happen,” he reasons. “Last year, Bonnie Raitf s amp blew up, and we asked (1995 host) Paul Reiser basically to vamp for four minutes. It would be very difficult for anyone other than a stand-up comedian to make that kind of sense out of a potential hunk of ‘dead’ air time, and that”s served us – well ever since we maae winy crystal our nost eigm years ago.” Greene doesn’t rule out putting a musician back in that spot again -— Andy Williams, John Denver and Kenny Rogers being examples of artists who have done it — and he thinks of Bette Midler as being “perfect, because she has that comedic sense as well as a great performance element. We just have to find multimedia artists who have a broader perspective on how to be a traffic cop for this kind of show for three hours.” Music critics often have taken the Recording Academy to task for the Grammy nominees selected, accusing the choices of being out of step with the musical times … but such protests have been considerably fewer this year. Greene attributes that to the Academy’s development of a national nominating committee, “one of the better moves we’ve made in the last few years. That set up some interesting procedures . The categories of Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Best New Artist are the only ones that all 8000 voting members vote on. “We took the top 20 vote-getters in each of those four categories,” Greene explains, “then the 25 members of the national nominating committee pared those 20 down to five. As a result, I think the elements of popularity and sentimentality were weeded out, combined with the strong showing of female singer-songwriters. If there is a (Grammy) theme this year, I think that has to be it” Greene claims he instituted that new procedure because he himself was “tired of seeing popularity rule the day from time to time” in regard to Grammy nominees and winners. “It really does my heart good not only to have a Joan Osborne or an Alanis Morissette (in competition), but also to see a Coolio show up for Record of the Year and a Shania Twain for Best New Artist. That didn’t really throw a lot of the veterans out of the running.”

Bette Midler Presents Michael Douglas With Career Achievement Award by the AARP Movies for Grownups Awards

Gulf News Michael Douglas among film stars honoured by AARP February 9, 2016 624510335 Michael Douglas was initially confused. The star of Fatal Attraction and many other films told the crowd, while being honoured with a career achievement award by the AARP Movies for Grownups Awards at Monday’s glitzy ceremony, that his assistant mistakenly told him he was receiving an award for his work in adult films. “I remember all my films,” joked Douglas after receiving a standing ovation. “I don’t remember any adult films.” The newspaper drama Spotlight was selected as best picture at the 15th annual ceremony presented by the advocacy group AARP to stars over the age of 50 and the films that speak to that demographic. “I think when we set out to make this movie, we weren’t thinking about whether it was for kids or for grown-ups,” said Spotlight filmmaker Tom McCarthy. “Collectively, we understood that it was a story we had to tell. It was that important. We hoped it would reach everybody who needed to hear it.” Mark Rylance was chosen as best supporting actor for Bridge of Spies, while Bryan Cranston won the best actor trophy for Trumbo. “I’m delighted to be here tonight — and not just because my AARP gives me a deep discount on the parking,” said Cranston. Lily Tomlin was honoured as best actress for Grandma, while Diane Ladd was awarded the best supporting actress for Joy. In her speech, Ladd took issue with the competitive race for supporting actress at this year’s Academy Awards, which she is not among. “I’m a little ticked off that the studios with greed put stars in films in the best supporting Oscar category,” said Ladd. “That’s not right. Rooney Mara won the best actress category at Cannes (for Carol). Why is she in my supporting category?” At the beginning of night, show host Kathy Griffin joked that #OscarsSoYoung should be trending on Twitter and that she felt comfortable mocking youngsters at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel ceremony. “As a comic, there’s only so many groups I can make fun of anymore because everyone is so sensitive, but in this room, I can really talk [expletive] about millennials,” said Griffin. Other winners on Monday included The Intern as best comedy, Love & Mercy as best time capsule, The Last Man on the Moon as best documentary, Learning to Drive as best buddy picture, 5 Flights Up as best grown-up love story, Rams as best foreign film, Inside Out for best movie for grown-ups who refuse to grow up and Creed as best intergenerational film. “I’m one of those weird millennials,” said Creed director Ryan Coogler during his acceptance speech, which he joking left Sylvester Stallone out of in a nod to the Rocky star not thanking him at the Golden Globes. Other attendees at Monday’s star-studded ceremony included Morgan Freeman, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Bette Midler, Patricia Clarkson, June Squibb, Phylicia Rashad, Elizabeth Banks, Mark Ruffalo and Dick Van Dyke. “I expected to see a lot of old people here,” joked Van Dyke. “I’m 90. I’m probably like the oldest person in this room!”

Bette Midler praises Michael Douglas

Contact Music Bette Midler praises Michael Douglas June 3, 2013 tn-500_bettewm10105132 Bette Midler has praised Michael Douglas for revealing his throat cancer was caused by oral sex. The ‘Behind the Candelabra’ star, who was diagnosed with stage four cancer in 2010, believes the illness was caused by HPV [human papillomavirus], which is best known for causing cervical cancer but has been linked to throat cancer, and Bette is happy he has brought attention to this epidemic. She tweeted: ”Bravo to Michael Douglas (so brilliant in the Liberace biopic) for telling the world that throat cancer can be caused by oral sex thru HPV (sic).” Michael, 68, who is married to Catherine Zeta-Jones, recently revealed he has no regrets about spending years smoking and drinking, for which he sought treatment in rehab in 1992, because he doesn’t think it caused him to get sick. The actor – cancer free since 2010 – said: ”No. Because without wanting to get too specific, this particular cancer is caused by HPV, which actually comes about from cunnilingus (oral sex performed on a female).” Michael, who has two children, Carys, 10, and Dylan, 12, with Catherine, as well as 34-year-old son Cameron, currently serving a jail sentence for drug offences, with his first wife Diandra Luker, was initially worried that stress had made him ill. He explained: ”I did worry if the stress caused by my son’s incarceration didn’t help trigger it. But yeah, it’s a sexually transmitted disease that causes cancer. And if you have it, cunnilingus is also the best cure for it.”

Who’s Been Sleeping At Huka Lodge?

Hotel Chatter The Guest List At Huka Lodge Is A Celebrity Overload Oct 26, 2012 Joan Collins. Michael Douglas. Bette Midler. Barbra Streisand. John Cleese. Queen Elizabeth II, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, and Queen Margrethe of Denmark. What do all these people have in common? They’ve stayed at Huka Lodge, one of New Zealand’s most exclusive hotels, and a perfect Fantasy Friday candidate. Located on the Waikato River, near Taupo and Rotorua on the North Island, this is one place that’s on our personal hotel bucket-list. We’re assuming each of these famous guests (celebrity, royal, and otherwise) shacked up in The Owner’s Cottage, which sounds much more palatial than the name suggests: four en-suite bedrooms, a living room, dining area, kitchen, and den, with local art throughout. An outdoor deck with cantilevered infinity pool and views over the river towards Huka Falls downstream. Browsing through the pictures, we are seriously swooning over this place. Given the roster of guests, there are also Escort Rooms, “very simple single rooms designed for children traveling with parents, for accompanying staff such as nannies, personal security, drivers, etc.” Does the casual “etc.” crack anybody up, or is that just us? Since money clearly will be no object, we’d like to venture out in style for The Huka Experience, combining a scenic helicopter flight over the New Zealand wilderness with a cruise on Lake Taupo, the country’s largest lake. Come time to eat, there are over 20 spots in- and outside the lodge that can be used as the backdrop for a meal. Perhaps a table for two hidden somewhere in the 17-acre grounds? Or gather with friends and family by the log fire in the library? It’s all possible. We hate to break the bubble of fantasy with something as pedestrian as prices, but a “Time Together” package starts at a celebrity-worthy NZ$4,000 (about US$3,300), depending on the time of year. That does include two nights’ accommodation for two in a Junior Lodge Suite, full breakfast, drinks, canapés, and dinner, a bottle of Champagne upon arrival, a Huka Lodge book and perfumed turn-down candle, as well as use of all lodge facilities. Rates for The Owner’s Cottage are, as you’d expect, “upon request”. For more photos: Click Here

More On The “Argo” Premiere In NYC

Wall Street Journal Party Hopping And Grocery Shopping 10/11/2012 The Time Warner Center hosted every A-list actor from George Clooney to Bette Midler Tuesday night. At the steakhouse “Porter House,” Ben Affleck was hosting a dinner for the premiere of his new film “Argo,” thrown by the Peggy Siegal Company, while Michael Douglas, among others, hosted an event for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences just next door, at Stone Rose Lounge. Floating through the halls of the Midtown shopping mall that evening were Ms. Midler, Affleck pal Matt Damon, Alex Karpovsky, Mr. Clooney and Bryan Cranston. Actors like Mr. Douglas went back and forth between the neighboring parties. Since most of the shopping center doesn’t close until after 10 p.m., some unsuspecting Whole Foods shoppers were caught in the mix of celebrities as they left the building with their bags.

Bette Midler Attends The Chaplin Awards 2010

New York Daily News Michael Douglas snubs son Cameron in thank you speech at Chaplin Award ceremony Gatecrasher Wednesday, May 26th 2010, 4:00 AM Danny DeVito, Jimmy Buffett and Bette Midler all came out to fete Michael Douglas at the Film Society of Lincoln Center‘s 37th annual Chaplin Award ceremony on Monday night, but it was the absence of his son Cameron that seemed to stand out at the event. “No one could shake the feeling that what Michael had gone through with his son was still omnipresent,” says an insider at Alice Tully Hall. “It definitely had an impact on the evening.” A source in the know, who has attended this event in past years, added: “It was a much different feel than when Tom Hanks was honored in 2009. Even though it was still really touching, last time everyone drank a lot more and there was a lot more laughter. “And it’s not like Hanks is a bigger star than Michael – Douglas really is a legend.” But it’s not too surprising that after what the “Wall Street 2″ actor has recently gone through with his son – who is serving time on drug charges in a minimum-security prison in Lewisburg, Pa. – the night would be a little more somber. For a moment, slightly awkward, too: While Douglas profusely thanked his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones – calling her “Cathy” – and their two children, Dylan and Carys, during his acceptance speech, he left out mention of Cameron. Says our party going snitch: “It struck the audience as a little odd.” It seems that his scary-skinny missus, however, had no problem bringing up her stepson. “I’m most proud of [Michael] for the role of a father; the commitment to the three of our [children], Cameron, Dylan and Carys, is extraordinary,” she said through tears. “And I thank you every day for that, darling.” But even her performance couldn’t warm up the evening: Most of the A-list guests said their goodbyes after the speeches were through, and only Michael and “Wonder Boys” director Curtis Hanson showed to the after-party bash. “It would have been nice for Michael if it was a bit more festive, although I think everyone understood why it was a little different than years past,” says another attendee. “But it was still so important – and really moving – how many of his colleagues and friends came out to support him.” Reblog this post [with Zemanta]
