Our hearts are all a-flutter over the latest Oscars news regarding Empress Barbra Streisand!
We almost EXPLODED from ecstasy overload after finding out that Babz would be returning to the Oscars stage for the first time in an AGE to perform a special musical number, but our curiosity concerning WHAT she'd be singing has proven almost unbearable…

He was a singular sensation. We can't believe he's gone.
Legendary Hollywood and Broadway music-maker Marvin Hamlisch passed away at 68.
The Tony Award winning composer responsible for scoring The Chorus Line died this morning after a short bout with an undisclosed illness.
Marvin was also responsible for scoring several wonderful films including The Way We Were and Sophie's Choice.
Our deepest thoughts and well-wishes extend to all of Marvin's family and loved ones.
Rest in peace, sir. You were one of the greats!

Barbra Streisand was very close to Broadway writer and director Arthur Laurents.
The two worked on The Way We Were and she was going to collaborate with him again on the new film version of Gypsy.
This is what she has to say about her memories with Laurents:
"Arthur and I go way back to I Can Get It For You Wholesale in 1962. Then we did The Way We Were in 1973 and we were about to do Gypsy together. He created people you care about because he cared about people. I spoke to him a few weeks ago and he sounded so strong, as always. He was lucky to have lived a full and creative life up til the very end. I’ll miss working with him again."
So touching. We're sure it was very hard for her to hear about his passing.
His work of art will always be remembered.
