Ok, so the Oscars have wrapped up quick smart for this year, and as is the tradition, through bleary eyes and a film conjured hangover, we look forward to next years big event to see what could possibly end up with Oscar glory.
Which is why the appearance of Taron Egerton and Elton John performing Tiny Dancer together at Elton’s annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party – now in its 27th year. The party is hosted by Sir Elton John and David Furnish, and has raised over $6.3 million for the global effort to end AIDS.
An auction was held at this years event for items associated with the upcoming Dexter Fletcher film Rocketman. During the event, Taron Egerton was invited on stage to sing an Elton John song, at which Egerton said that he’d only sing if Elton joined him on stage. And, well, they did.
Dexter Fletcher replaced director Bryan Singer after he was fired from the four time Oscar winning film, Bohemian Rhapsody, which helped Rami Malek on his way to Oscar glory with a Best Actor win. Much was made about the fact that Malek wasn’t actually singing in the film, instead a composite of Freddie Mercury’s voice, Malek’s singing, and another singer, were mixed together to create the singing in the film. Bohemian Rhapsody also won Best Sound Mixing and Editing awards. Will Rocketman repeat this kind of glory and success at next years Oscars?
