After trying for weeks to salvage the high-luster Golden Globe Awards ceremony, the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. is set to announce today that it will forgo the annually televised black-tie event scheduled for Sunday in favor of a scaled-down press conference broadcast on NBC.

The compromise would allow the winners to receive their awards but would cut out the lavish dinner and ceremony, an event the Writers Guild of America had vowed to picket.

The extended press conference would be covered by NBC News, which, though part of NBC Universal, is not a division affected by the ongoing writers strike. Read More

MUMBAI: Johnny Depp has been voted as the number one ‘Money-Making Star of 2007′ in Quigley Publishing Company’s 76th Annual Poll. This poll is an annual survey of motion picture exhibitors conducted since 1932. It votes for the top ten stars who generate the maximum box-office revenue in the preceding year for their theatres.

Depp, who starred in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, has repeated his 2006 performance. In 2005, he was placed only second to Tom Cruise.

This time round Will Smith, who starred in I Am Legend, finished second followed by George Clooney (Michael Clayton and Ocean’s Thirteen) and Matt Damon (The Bourne Ultimatum and Ocean’s Thirteen). The list further includes Denzel Washington (The Great Debaters and American Gangster) at fifth position while Russell Crowe ( American Gangster and 3:10 to Yuma) was placed sixth.

Interestingly, Tom Cruise, who remained in the top ten for a record 20 times since 1983 fared at number seven followed by Nicholas Cage, Will Ferrell and Tom Hanks respectively. This is the first year in 24 years, since 1983, that exhibitors have not included a female star in the Top Ten. [Source]

“Before he toplines back-to-back “Pirates of the Caribbean” sequels, Johnny Depp will first pull double duty for Tim BurtonTim Burton and Warner Bros.
Already booked to play Willy Wonka in the Burton-directed “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” Depp has just made a deal to provide the lead voice in “Corpse Bride,” the stop-motion animated film Burton is co-directing with Michael Johnson and producing with Allison Abbate.

Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Emily Watson, Albert Finney, Richard Grant, Joanna Lumley and Christopher Lee will provide character voices for the latter film, being made in London simultaneously with “Charlie.”

WB will release the Wonka pic July 15, 2005, and “Corpse Bride” in October 2005.

Latter film shares the stop-motion animation technique used in the Burton-produced “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” as well as a similarly charming but macabre setting. In a 19th-century European village, Victor (Depp) travels to the underworld for a quickie wedding to a mysterious corpse bride (Bonham Carter) while his living wife (Watson) pines for his return.”

    I love the idea of changing my look. I think one owes it to the audience, to go out there and give them something different each time, so as not to bore them to death. And I always felt that if you're not trying something different each time out of the gate, you're being safe, and you don't ever want to find that place of safety. I like that, each time, before I even go in front of the cameras, the studio's reaction will be fear. They have those hideous pangs of fear where they go, "He's fucking killing the movie." And I can't argue with them, because I might be. But I just know for the character that this is the right thing to do. And I've always enjoyed hiding behind these characters. It's a strange thing, you're more comfortable as a character than you are in life. You know what I mean? I could stand up in front of, it doesn't matter how many people, as a character. But if I had to do it as myself and give a speech, I would be liquid.
