Legacy and The Oscars®

Remember the charismatic dancer “Legacy” from last season’s So You Think You Can Dance? I’m happy to report he will be performing at the televised 82nd Annual Academy Awards® Ceremony on March 7.

AND -- a drum roll please -- Legacy has agreed to be a guest on my Movie Addict Headquarters show on the following Tuesday, March 9. I’m hoping he’ll talk about his experience at the Oscars® as well as his new movies, including the third Step-Up film, which is being released in 3-D.

When my husband and I first saw Legacy dancing on SYTYCD, we both thought he had the potential to make it big in the movies. Evidently, so did some perceptive Hollywood VIPs. Congrats, Legacy!

Legacy’s interview on MAHQ will air on BlogTalkRadio at 1 p.m. Pacific Time (4 p.m. Eastern Time). During the live show, listeners are invited to call in and to participate in a chat. An archived segment will also be available. The call-in number is 646-478-5668.

Scarlett's Baby

Cammie King Conlon, who played Rhett and Scarlett’s beautiful little daughter in Gone With The Wind, will visit Movie Addict Headquarters on February 9th to discuss her delightful memoir about being involved in that iconic film classic.

Although only five years old when given the role of Bonnie Blue Butler, Cammie still remembers what it was like to work with star Clark Gable and director Victor Fleming. Cammie’s book is filled with fascinating inside information concerning what happened on and off the set. It also includes poignant and humorous descriptions of her challenges as a new child actress.

Of course, when Cammie walked onto the sound stage back in 1939, she had no idea Gone With The Wind would become such a cinematic phenomenon. The film went on to win 10 Oscars and has been screened millions of times throughout the world. It’s still going strong on DVD.

Released last year, BONNIE BLUE BUTLER: A ‘GONE WITH THE WIND’ MEMOIR coincided with the movie’s 70th Anniversary. Yes indeed, fans (called “Windies”) continue to celebrate this beloved film. Those fans -- as well as movie addicts everywhere – should enjoy listening to Cammie talk about her book and her GWTW memories.

This special BlogTalkRadio show airs at 4 p.m. Eastern Time (1 p.m. Pacific Time) on Tuesday, February 9. During the live show, listeners are invited to call in and to participate in a chat. An archived segment will also be available.

Lighten Up, Oscar®!

Once again, members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have demonstrated their preference for drama over comedy and musicals. Even though the number of Best Picture nominees has been increased to ten instead of the usual five this year, the list announced yesterday does not include such high quality lighter fare as THE PROPOSAL, (500 DAYS OF SUMMER), It’S COMPLICATED and FANTASTIC MR. FOX or entertaining musicals like the terrific FAME remake, the impressive EVERY LITTLE STEP documentary and NINE, Rob Marshall’s stylistic adaptation of the award-winning Broadway show.

I, for one, am not amused.
