Entertainment http://nhpr.org en And The Golden Globe Goes To... http://nhpr.org/post/and-golden-globe-goes <p>It’s about that time in January when you’ve just about had it with “THE BEST ____ OF 2013!” lists… a sure sign that it’s time for awards season. As far as the <em>industry</em> is concerned, the Oscar race begins with the Golden Globe Awards this Sunday night. The ceremony takes place right about the time thousands of members of the Academy of Motions Picture Arts and Sciences are filling out their Oscar ballots - which is exactly what makes the approximately 90 obscure journalists who are members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association so influential. They alone determine who goes home with a Golden Globe Award…and they are wined, dined and stroked by studios and stars accordingly.</p><p>We’re going to talk about predictions and snubs with a pair of our own influencers today…<a href="http://www.hippopress.com/" target="_blank"><strong>Amy Diaz</strong>,</a> editor of the Hippo Press, and NH filmmaker <strong><a href="http://nosmokefilms.com/directors/adam-jones/" target="_blank">Adam Jones</a>, </strong>a voting member of the Director’s Guild of America.</p><p> Thu, 09 Jan 2014 20:05:14 +0000 Virginia Prescott 41544 at http://nhpr.org And The Golden Globe Goes To... 20 Impersonators Vie for Best Elvis: An Audio Postcard http://nhpr.org/post/20-impersonators-vie-best-elvis-audio-postcard <p>This year, Labor day weekend was a time not just to celebrate workers in America – but to celebrate… <em>Elvis</em>.&nbsp; Crowds of Elvis Fans attended a three day Elvis festival and competition in Manchester, cheering on twenty Elvis Tribute Artists as they vied for #1 – and a chance to go on to compete in the Ultimate Elvis Presley Tribute Artist Contest next August in Memphis, Tennessee. &nbsp;</p> Mon, 03 Sep 2012 21:38:45 +0000 Emily Corwin 12147 at http://nhpr.org 20 Impersonators Vie for Best Elvis: An Audio Postcard Bringing Hollywood to the Granite State: A NH Coalition Wants Tax Incentives for Film and TV http://nhpr.org/post/bringing-hollywood-granite-state-nh-coalition-wants-tax-incentives-film-and-tv <p>A group of arts and media business owners have formed a coalition hoping to encourage film and TV production in the Granite State. </p> <p>The New Hampshire Production Coalition is currently developing a legislative plan that would help New Hampshire compete with more film-friendly states like Massachusetts, Michigan, New Mexico, and Louisiana</p> Fri, 10 Aug 2012 18:19:58 +0000 Taylor Quimby 10582 at http://nhpr.org Bringing Hollywood to the Granite State: A NH Coalition Wants Tax Incentives for Film and TV Theatre…NO MORE! http://nhpr.org/post/theatre-no-more <p>American stage productions are increasingly becoming financially insensitive for many.</p> Mon, 21 May 2012 15:25:03 +0000 Virginia Prescott 5238 at http://nhpr.org Theatre…NO MORE!

Lena Dunham's 'Girls': Still Sex, Still The City, Different Show http://nhpr.org/post/lena-dunhams-girls-still-sex-still-city-different-show Lena Dunham's new series <em>Girls</em> debuts on HBO on April 15. Dunham, who got quite a bit of attention for being the star, director and writer of the 2010 indie film <em>Tiny Furniture</em>, fills the same three roles in this ensemble show about four young women in New York.<p>Of course, it's not HBO's first time out with an ensemble show about four women in New York, and as Dunham tells weekends on <em>All Things Considered</em> guest host Laura Sullivan, the shows are very different in tone and content, but there's a relationship nevertheless.

Mickey Mouse and Disney have theirs. Now, Napoleon might get his chance too.<p>Christian Mantei the head of Atout France, the tourism group supporting the endeavor, once told the <a href="http://www.yvesjego.com/actualite-le-parc-napoleon-dansthe-economist.html"><em>The Economist</em></a> that "bosses at Disneyland Paris once said that only Napoleon had the stature to take on Mickey Mouse".<p>Well, that epic battle may become a reality.

And if missed! What then ? We were forced to wait like petulant children for the chewing maw of TV Guide to expel the precious rerun. Thankfully we live in a liberated time, free to choose when and where to catch up on missed programing, truly a Golden Age of television viewing.</p> Wed, 04 Jan 2012 16:45:40 +0000 Virginia Prescott & Rebecca Lavoie 1210 at http://nhpr.org Never Too Late to Watch Cool TV Making the Holidays Special (Even if you have to fake it) http://nhpr.org/post/making-holidays-special-even-if-you-have-fake-it <p>Celebrity designer <strong><a href="http://www.matthewmeadstyle.com/">Matthew Mead </a></strong>shares his <a href="http://www.holidaywithmatthewmead.com">tricks</a> for making entertaining easy, beautiful, and fun...even if you <em>don&#39;t </em>have time to make a walnut wreath.</p> Wed, 23 Nov 2011 18:39:42 +0000 Virginia Prescott 579 at http://nhpr.org Making the Holidays Special (Even if you have to fake it)
