Joan Rivers was notably left out of the In Memoriam segment at the 87th Oscars on Sunday (22Feb15), when the Academy paid tribute to the likes of Mickey Rooney, Edward Herrmann, James Garner, Elizabeth Pena, Maya Angelou, James Rebhorn, Lord Richard Attenborough, Ruby Dee, Robin Williams, Lauren Bacall, Bob Hoskins and Mike Nichols, among many others, in a special montage. Rivers, who died in September (14), was also missing from a similar piece at the Grammy Awards earlier this month (Feb15).
German composer James Last has bowed out of touring after contracting a "life-threatening" illness in September (14). The 85-year-old musician, who has sold more than 80 million albums worldwide, insists he greatly regrets the decision although he is glad he can say goodbye to his fans with a series of farewell shows.
The tour starts in Germany next month (Mar15) and will conclude at London's iconic music venue the Royal Albert Hall in April (15).
In a statement, the veteran star says, "The (final) concert itself won't be centred around my farewell. The only important thing will be that my fans, my friends and I all have a good time and can enjoy a fantastic concert."
Last's career spans back to the 1960s and his work has been performed by music greats including Elvis Presley, Andy Williams and Eddie Fisher.
After falling ill, Last said, "A man full of plans, needs to not just slow down but give up his life on tour altogether."
The nature of his illness has not been made public.
Singer Rhonda Vincent was the big winner at the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America (SPBGMA) on Sunday (08Feb15) after deciding to attend the Tennessee prizegiving instead of heading to Los Angeles for the Grammy Awards. The I'm Not Over You hitmaker lost out on the Best Bluegrass Album Grammy to The Earls of Leicester, but she was all smiles at the SPBGMAs in Nashville after picking up the Entertainer of the Year and Female Vocalist (Contemporary) titles.
It was also a great night for her group, The Rage, which took home the Bluegrass Band of the Year, while member Hunter Berry was named Fiddle Performer of the Year and Josh Williams was honoured with the Master's Gold Award for winning the Guitar Performer of the Year accolade 10 consecutive times.
Celebrating the achievements, Vincent said, "It's an incredible moment in time for us... We are so thankful for the support of our music; the promoters and venues who host our shows, and our friends who join us at the shows. We couldn't do it without you. We appreciate each and every award. I am very honoured and so proud of the incredible world class musicians that make up The Rage."
Traditional vocalist James King was also awarded the Master's Gold title, while Farm Hands star Tim Graves was inducted into the SPBGMA's Preservation Hall of Greats just moments after landing the Dobro Player of the Year prize for the 10th time.
His Farm Hands band was also victorious, landing the Gospel Group (Contemporary) and Entertaining Group awards.
Tom T. Hall was another double winner, earning the best song prize for That's Kentucky, while he and his late wife Dixie picked up the Best songwriter gong.
Best album went to the Larry Stephenson Band for Pull Your Savior In.
Did you get all that the 90s had to offer? If not then you need to get nostalgic and start binge-watching the best TV shows and movies of that decade. So if you want to look back on the bad fashion, the hot celebrities, the music and more, here are 20 things you need to watch that has it all.
This is definitely one of the most quotable movies of this decade. Watch clueless Cher (Alicia Silverstone) play match maker to multiple people around her.
2. Pulp Fiction
Every Quentin Tarantino fan would say this is a must! This classic follows four storylines including two mob men, a boxer, the wife of a mob man, and a couple of bandits.
3. Jurassic Park
Even in a post-Avatar world, this movie is impressive with its visual effects. If you never watched the original go back and watch Spielberg's take before watching the new reboot.
4. The Sixth Sense
It's been a while, so chances are someone might have spoiled the ending for you already, but trust us and watch it anyways. This scary and suspenseful movie makes it all worth it.
Warner Bros. Television/Giphy
Because of this show, and the beautiful Jennifer Aniston, was the reason so many women were asking for "The Rachel" in their hair salon. Get in late on the craze.
6. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
This show is proof that Will Smith has always been amazing. Alfonso Ribeiro also had people laughing and doing "The Carlton."
7. Boy Meets World
Michael Jacobs Productions/Giphy
We're sure you're already catching the syndication of this show on TV, but we couldn't leave it off our list! Watch Cory Matthews (Ben Savage) and those around him grow before your eyes through 7 seasons.
Need a show that understands your dating problems due to being neurotic? Look no further.
9. Dawson's Creek
You can't talk about this decade without acknowledging the show that gave us James Van Der Beek, Katie Holmes, and Michelle Williams. Can you?
10. Full House
Jeff Franklin Productions/Giphy
To this day people still quote little Michelle saying "You got it dude!" Watch Bob Saget being a single father of three and getting help from his friends.
11. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Get in on the Buffy craze by watching her fight off evil vampires and demons with her friends.
12. Boyz n the Hood
Colombia Pictures Corporation/Giphy
This movie follows a group of childhood friends growing up in the hood in Los Angeles. Other than a gripping story line, this movie offers fashion flashbacks galore.
13. Twin Peaks
This TV show only had two seasons, but people still mention it to this day. Watch FBI agent, Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) try to find out who murdered of Laura Palmer.
Impact Zone Productions/Giphy
Were you a girl growing up and outnumbered by men? Well poor Blossom Russo feels your pain.
15. The Silence of The Lambs
Find out why "put the lotion in the basket" is so damn creepy. This thriller shows Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster), an F.B.I. agent seeking help from an incarcerated killer in order to catch a serial killer who skins people.
16. Fight Club
Fox 2000 Pictures/Giphy
Look back on Brad Pitt's beautiful frosted tips with this movie. Edward Norton plays an office worker who isn't getting any sleep. When he meets Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt) they end up switching things up by creating a fight club.
Forget about watching another sitcom with a seemingly perfect family. This show had working class people in the forefront and of course hilarious Roseanne Barr cracking jokes.
18. American Pie
This filthy franchise all started with four high school friends making a pact to lose their virginity. Have a fun looking at what Tara Reid was doing before Sharknado.
19. The Blair Witch Project
Thanks to this now we have Paranomal Activity, and many other "found footage" films. This movie shows three film students creating a documentary about a Blair Witch legend.
20. Dumb and Dumber
Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are very stupid, but very funny friends that go on a cross-country adventure.

British soap star James Sutton is engaged to marry his model girlfriend Kit Williams. Sutton, who is best known for his roles in U.K. serial dramas Emmerdale and Hollyoaks, popped the question to Williams while on holiday in Barbados last week (26Jan15).
Sutton shared the news on Twitter.com on Friday (30Jan15) by posting an image of the pair having a romantic dinner, and an engagement ring is clearly seen on Williams' finger. The actor captioned the picture, writing, "She said yes".
The soap star, who turned 32 on Saturday (31Jan15), later wrote, "Thanks for all the congratulations messages on our engagement and the birthday ones too. I'm having a great birthday."
Actresses Shailene Woodley and Jennifer Lawrence were among the big winners at the 2015 People's Choice Awards on Wednesday (07Jan15) after taking home multiple honours. Woodley picked up awards for Favorite Action Movie for Divergent and Favorite Movie Duo with onscreen love interest Theo James, while the actress' hit teen cancer film, The Fault in Our Stars, scored her the title of Favorite Dramatic Movie at the prizegiving in Los Angeles.
Lawrence landed two acting accolades - Favorite Movie Actress and Favorite Action Movie Actress.
Unfortunately, neither of the leading ladies were present at the Nokia Theatre to accept their awards.
Robert Downey, Jr. was another double winner, claiming the Favorite Movie Actor and Favorite Dramatic Movie Actor prizes, while Angelina Jolie's Maleficent was named Favorite Family Movie and Favorite Movie overall.
Long-running medical drama Grey's Anatomy earned the most trophies of the night, including Favorite Network TV Drama, Favorite Dramatic TV Actor and Actress for Patrick Dempsey and Ellen Pompeo, and former cast member Sandra Oh was named the Favorite TV Character We Miss Most.
Other champions included Castle's Nathan Filion and Stana Katic (Favorite Crime Drama, TV Actor and Actress) and British singer Ed Sheeran, who nabbed the Favorite Male Artist and Favorite Album titles.
Meanwhile, Ben Affleck was saluted as the Favorite Humanitarian for his work with the Eastern Congo Initiative, the organisation he set up in 2010 to help residents of the war-torn region.
Amy Adams presented her Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice co-star Affleck with his prize, which he admitted was a trophy he never expected to receive.
He explained, "This is incredibly humbling... I've been called a lot of things in my life, but I'm not sure until recently humanitarian has ever been one of them. To be honest, it's something that I have a hard time accepting, because I've had the privilege of working alongside so many incredible people in Congo and all over the world, who I assure you are far more deserving."
Affleck continued, "Sometimes the world is a scary and terrible place and bad things happen... the one way to combat the terrible things we see is to bring a little bit of kindness and show that our country is about reaching out and helping our fellow man.
"This is an incredible honour - I can't say that I'm deserving, but I'm privileged to be among the many, many, many people who have done such great work."
Awards co-hosts Anna Faris and Allison Janney kicked off the show with a skit featuring Faris' husband Chris Pratt, who jokingly embellished his success after blockbuster movie Guardians of the Galaxy last summer (14), surrounded by piles of movie scripts as Faris attempted to convince him to take care of their young son, Jack.
Pratt actually missed the event because he was at home with the couple's son, who was recovering from eye surgery.

New Year's Day is creeping up on us, and to celebrate we decided to look back on the year 2014 and its celebrity moments. It's always interesting to see what and who matters to us when it comes to entertainment news. The A-list certainly created headlines that have stuck around for weeks because they did something that blew our minds. Sometimes the reason for the headline was plain strange, sometimes it was sad, and others were shocking!
1. Rihanna returned to Instagram.
2. Emma Watson launched "HeForShe" gender equality campaign.
3. Here Comes Honey Boo was canceled.
The reason for it really threw us.
4. George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin got married.
We never thought we would see the day that this bachelor settled down.
5. Robin Williams passed away.
6. Lupita Nyong'o won "Best Supporting Actress" at the Oscars for her awesome performance in 12 Years A Slave.
7. John Travolta totally flubbed Idina Menzel's name at the Oscars.
8. Stephen Colbert had his final
9. Rumor of Idris Elba being the next James Bond hit the web.
10. Kim Kardashian's crazy "break the internet" photo shoot was revealed. Then the spoofs came in and made our life!
11. Jennifer Lawrence along with many other female celebrities' nude photos were leaked. We couldn't help but say...
12. Nicki Minaj's provacative "Anaconda" video released.
13. Solange Knowles got married.
14. The Kimye wedding happened.
15. How I Met Your Mother ended and we didn't know how to feel after it broke its promise to us.

The Oscars are supposed to be a barometer for greatness in the movie industry, but sometimes the Academy just misses the mark. Think about it: Three Six Mafia has an Oscar, but Leonardo DiCaprio does not. Snubs inevitably happen every year and some are more egregious than others. As we prepare for the next batch of nominations, let us reflect on some of the biggest snubs that still have us scratching our heads.
1. Leonardo DiCaptio in The Departed
Leo has been nominated a lot, we know this, but he was at his best in this Martin Scorsese flick. It still pains us that this wasn’t his year.
2. Leonardo DiCaprio in Revolutionary Road
We thought Leo/Kate Winslet reunion would equal Oscar magic. But alas, it was not to be.
3. Leonardo DiCaprio in Catch Me If You Can
We still love this movie and think he was fantastic as con man Frank Abagnale Jr. Technically he played more than character, as Frank faked his way into becoming an airline pilot, a doctor and a lawyer.
4. Leonardo DiCaprio in The Aviator
Last Leo one, we promise. But man did he do a good job playing Howard Hughes’ descent into madness.
5. Brokeback Mountain
With the exception of Ang Lee winning for Best Director, Brokeback Mountain got completely shut out of the Oscars. Crash beat it for Best Picture in an upset, and Heath Ledger, Jake Gyllenhaal and Michelle Williams all inexplicably lost in their categories despite delivering amazing performances.
6. Alfred Hitchcock
Can you believe the Master of Suspense never won an Oscar for directing? Despite all of his directing techniques that are now famous, poor Hitch never got Oscar recognition. Couldn’t they have at least given him the Best Cameos in All His Films award?
7. James Dean
We expect that if James Dean had lived longer than his young 24 years, he would have taken home Oscar gold. But the impressive trifecta of films he made during his much-too-short career (A Rebel Without a Cause, East of Eden and Giant) are enough to make us sad he never won.
8. Saving Private Ryan
This Steven Spielberg wartime epic starring Tom Hanks was beat out for Best Picture by Shakespeare in Love. Rumblings have indicated power producer Harvey Weinstein’s purse strings – rather than the film’s merit - are what actually got Shakespeare the gold.
9. Marilyn Monroe
The iconic bombshell never got to make a breathy Oscar acceptance speech. She was probably most deserving for her part in Some Like It Hot, but it just wasn't in the cards.
10. Amy Adams
Doesn’t it seem like she gets nominated every year? She’s like the female Leonardo DiCaprio at this point. She was great in The Fighter and she was our favorite part of American Hustle last year. Such a shame.
11. Robert Redford
Redford, aka the Brad Pitt before Brad Pitt, has never won an Oscar for acting. He nabbed one in 1981 for directing Ordinary People and got a Lifetime Achievement award in 2002, but the founder of the Sundance Film Festival was never acknowledged for the talent that made him famous.
12. Paul Newman for The Hustler
It took Paul Newman way too long to claim his Oscar glory. He was notoriously snubbed all throughout his prime years – most notably for The Hustler in 1962. The Academy finally gave him an honorary award in 1986 and then a Best Actor Oscar in 1987 for his role in the subpar sequel to The Hustler - The Color of Money.
13. Citizen Kane
This film has been number one on so many AFI Greatest Movies of All Time lists that we kind of just assumed it had won the Oscar for Best Picture. Not so. The Orson Welles masterpiece was beat out by How Green Was My Valley, a movie about a Welsh mining village.
14. Michael Fassbender in Shame
When you put aside the jokes about "best performance by a penis in a movie," you’ll realize that Fassbender actually turns in an Oscar-worthy performance in Shame (clothed or unclothed). We’ll give him time though – we think a statuette is in his future.
15. Ewan McGregor
Ewan (or as we like to call him: every straight man’s mancrush) has turned in some brilliant work over the years – like his roles in Beginners and The Impossible. But sadly it seems it wasn’t enough to catch the Academy’s attention.
16. Johnny Depp
Johnny Depp does not have an Oscar. We repeat: Johnny Depp does not have an Oscar. How can the guy who played iconic characters in Edward Scissorhands, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Finding Neverland be lacking a trophy, you ask? It’s a mystery for the ages.
17. Jessica Chastain
Remember when Jessica Chastain had like a million movies come out in 2011? In luckier years, we think at least ONE of those would have gotten her a win. Maybe 2015 will be her year.
18. Keira Knightley in Pride & Prejudice
Reese Witherspoon beat her out that year for Walk the Line, but Keira would have had our vote for her pitch perfect portrayal of Jane Austen heroine Elizabeth Bennett.
Talk about a beautifully made film. It even won the Golden Globe for Best Drama that year, which is usually a sign that an Oscar imminent. Nope. No Country for Old Men took it instead. Guess nothing beats a Coen Brothers film with an ambiguous ending.
20. Short Term 12
If you've seen this gem of an indie movie starring a riveting Brie Larson, you'll understand why this was a major snub. It was one of the best movies of 2013, but presumably because it was so small, it didn't get any awards love. Travesty.
21. Mary Elizabeth Winstead in Smashed
Another small movie, but a huge Oscar-worthy performance by Winstead as a young wife coming to terms with sobriety. Or at least worthy of a nomination. Pay better attention, Academy!

Upon learning of the news, a stunned Smith exclaimed, "Oh my gosh, dream come true! Oh my God."
The Album of the Year nod capped a triumphant day for Smith - the British soul sensation emerged as the artist to beat earlier on Friday (05Dec14), when the rest of the nominations were announced.
He earned recognition for Best New Artist, Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for his hit track Stay With Me, and Best Pop Vocal Album for his debut, In The Lonely Hour.
Beyonce also earned five other nods, but her main credits came in the R&B genre for Drunk in Love. She also notched up another in the Best Urban Contemporary Album shortlist for her self-titled 2013 release - making her the most-nominated female artist in Grammy Awards history with 52 to date.
Pharrell Williams was another six-time nominee, while Iggy Azalea, Sia, Usher, Jack White, Miranda Lambert and Eric Church each picked up four nods.
