CBS has announced that The Late Show Host and Tony Award-winning actor James Corden will serve as host for the 70th Annual Tony Awards.

James Corden is a multi-faceted performer, host, writer and producer with accomplishments that span television, theater, film and comedy. Since Corden took the helm of THE LATE LATE SHOW, the show has consistently been the most social talk show in its time period according to Nielson Social.

In a statement, Corden said, “I’m absolutely thrilled to be hosting the Tony Awards. Both times I’ve worked on Broadway have been amongst the happiest times of my professional life. I consider it to be a huge honor to be asked to host such an incredible night. It’s going to be fun; I can’t wait to dust off my tap shoes!”

“James is one of those rare performers whose gifts translate perfectly to both the Broadway stage and the television screen, making him the ideal choice to host the Tony Awards. The last time he was at the Tonys, he went home with one. We think he’ll have even more fun as host. This is going to be one unforgettable show,” said Charlotte St. Martin, President of The Broadway League, and Heather Hitchens, President of the American Theatre Wing in a statement.

“We are thrilled to have James Corden not only as a member of the CBS family, but as host of this year’s Tony Awards. James is the ultimate performer – actor, singer and comedian – and the perfect choice to host this prestigious and always entertaining live television event,” added Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President Specials, Music and Live Events for CBS Entertainment.

Corden took the reins of THE LATE LATE SHOW on March 23, 2015, and with the success of Carpool Karaoke and other shows on the official YouTube channel, his popularity has skyrocketed. Corden”s buzzworthy viral videos, have garnered over 410 million views and 1.84 million subscribers for the show’s YouTube channel.

Corden came to American late night television with a growing list of award-winning and critically acclaimed credits. He is a Tony Award-winning performer on Broadway, a BAFTA-winning star of a UK television series, a feature film actor, and an acclaimed host, writer and producer in several genres of television. Corden hosts the BAFTA Award-winning UK sports-themed comedy game show “A League of Their Own” on Sky 1 and starred in, produced and wrote the BAFTA nominated comedy thriller “The Wrong Mans,” which is available on Hulu and airs on the BBC. Also, he appeared in the BBC television movie “Esio Trot,” alongside Dustin Hoffman and Judi Dench. Outside of his native England, Corden attracted international attention as the lead in the hit comedic play “One Man, Two Guvnors,” performing first in the National Theatre and the West End in London and then on Broadway, which earned him the 2012 Tony Award for Best Leading Actor in a Play. His additional theater credits include the worldwide tour of “The History Boys” in the role of Timms, which he also played in the feature film adaptation, according to Broadway World.

The 2016 Tony Awards: Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss of White Cherry Entertainment will return as executive producers of the Tony Awards. Weiss will also serve as director for the 17th consecutive year.

The American Theatre Wing’s 70th Annual Tony Awards will air on the CBS Television Network on Sunday, June 12, 2016(8:00-11:00 PM, ET/delayed PT) live from the Beacon Theatre in New York City.

Laverne Cox, one of our favorite red carpet darlings, wowed on the Red Carpet at the 2016 SAG Awards Saturday.

The Orange is The New Black [OITNB] star “werked it” on the carpet as she got dolled up in a maroon gown. We love the dramatic appeal of the dress which is both classy and sexy altogether.

Cox, who plays Sophia Burset in the Netflix original, was invited to the awards show because she and her cast were up for an award, which they won. OITNB picked up the Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series award.

See more pictures of Laverne below.

Oscars Make Plans to increase diversity

Published by:

oscars

The Oscars are trying to turn things around, in the wake of this year’s nominations where no actor of color was recognized in any of the four acting categories.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences announced Friday, it will add three seats to its 51-person board in an effort to double the number of minorities and women in the Academy by 2020, according to Variety.

It also met with African-American host Chris Rock to make sure he’s still on board. Rock, has been under pressure to drop out as host from many credible people of power in the entertainment industry as the fall-out continues.

Variety points out that, of 305 eligible films this year, only a handful were made by minority directors, and fewer were directed by women.

Beginning later in 2016, new member’s voting rights will last 10 years and be renewed only if that member has been active in film. Members will get lifetime voting rights after three 10-year-terms, or if they’ve been nominated for an Oscar, the report revealed.

(Photo by Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP, File)

Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs said, “The Academy is going to lead and not wait for the industry to catch up. These new measures regarding governance and voting will have an immediate impact and begin the process of significantly changing our membership composition.”

The board made the changes in an emergency meeting Thursday night, as an undeniable response to the controversy over the Oscar nominations being so white. The Academy will also launch a new campaign aimed at increasing diversity.

Power players Jada Pinkett Smith, and honorary Oscar Winner Spike Lee have posted on social media that they will not be attending this year’s ceremony.
