LONDON – There are few voices in this world mightier than those of best buds Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart.

Even regular sentences spoken by them sound epic, and when you combine this sound with Taylor Swift lyrics… well, frankly we can’t do it justice with mere written words.

The recitals took place on NPR’s Ask Me Another on Thursday.

Sir Patrick had a go at “Blank Space”.

The Academy invited 322 newcomers late last month, the biggest incoming class yet, and a group that is significantly more diverse — at least in terms of race — than the Academy at large, according to research by The Hollywood Reporter. Among some of the new invitees were David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Kevin Hart and Justin Lin.

One-third of the new…

As the weather gets warmer, sweaters and jeans are getting shoved to the back of the closet, replaced by short skirts and tank tops. This leaves school administrators unrolling their tape measures, shaking their heads and taking disciplinary…

RANCHOS PALOS VERDES, California — From worst to first, that’s essentially the promise Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure made on Wednesday at Re/code‘s Code Conference.

Just eight months into his job, Claure told Re/code‘s Ina Fried that Sprint owns more spectrum than any other carrier and “in the next 18 to 24 months our network will be ranked No. 1 or No. 2 in every single market.”

It’s a tall order for a network that’s often rated last, but Claure said Sprint is already making progress. The…
