Elvis in Nashville: The King of Rock 'n' Roll was country royalty, too

- Before he was the King of Rock 'n' Roll, Elvis Presley was called the Hillbilly Cat. Sometimes, though, the substantial role country music played in Presley’s sound and career is overlooked.

- Following her Oscar win for “Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role” for her role in La La Land earlier this year, it should come as no surprise that Emma Stone has just been named Hollywood’s highest-paid actress.

Apple is bringing a billion-dollar checkbook to Hollywood, and wants to buy 10 TV shows

- Apple is officially open for business in Hollywood. The company is telling content makers it wants to spend $1 billion on its own stuff over the next year.

Artists on the Battle Lines, From France (Where Else?)

- Photo The New York Times Mid-Week Pictorial exemplified how powerful a tool the camera had become in telling the story of war. But technical limitations still left a lot to be desired.
