Weekend Poll! Which Best Picture Oscar Nominee Should Become a Musical?

first_imgLet’s face it—the real reason to tune in to the Oscars on Sunday is to watch Idina Menzel sing “Let It Go” live and to see Frozen composer Robert Lopez (hopefully) take his rightful place in the EGOT club. But we’re also excited to see which one of the nine Best Picture nominees will take home a little gold man. Since we’ve got Broadway on the brain, this also begs the question: Which one of these cinematic stories should become a Broadway musical? Hey, it happened to Rocky. Do you want to see a quirky and romantic adaptation of Her? A lush, airborne production of Gravity? A wild, no-holds-barred stage version of The Wolf of Wall Street (preferably starring Leo)? Dear readers, we have to know—which Best Picture nominee should be adapted into a stage musical? Cast your vote below! View Commentslast_img read more

Roger Federer picks Pete Sampras among others he would love to see again

Federer was playing his idol Sampras for the first time.Federer has been exploring new ways to embrace tennis at home and recently found a fun method at the wall where he’d previously put on a trick-shot show on ice.In a video, he stood just inches from the wall and hit rapid fire forehand volleys. Federer was already hitting volleys when the video began and he was still doing so when the video ended. The shots that he hit against the wall were too quick to count, but he hit about 200 consecutive volleys in one minute without moving his feet.The 20-time Grand Slam champion previously had posted clips of himself hitting against a wall in the snow, including around-the-back or through-the-leg-tweener trick shots.The men’s and women’s professional tours remain suspended until at least mid-July because of the coronavirus outbreak which has claimed more than thousands of lives across the world.
