Movies Rock honors films, tunes

Hollywood celebrates winning duo

The relationship between movies and music took centerstage at the inaugural Movies Rock event at the Kodak Theater on Sunday night.

“Music and movies have lasted longer than any marriage in Hollywood,” said presenter Charlize Theron.

Conde Nast Media Group, the Producers Guild of America and the Entertainment Industry Foundation hosted the show, which brought out Tony Bennett, Jennifer Lopez, Fergie, Shirley MacLaine, Kate Hudson and John Legend.

Beyonce did her best Judy Garland impression with a rendition of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” while Carrie Underwood found her inner Julie Andrews, singing “The Sound of Music.”

But the highlight of the night occurred when five-time Oscar-winning composer John Williams conducted an orchestral medley of the most memorable scores in movie history, including those from “Jaws” and “Star Wars.”

Before introducing Williams, Harrison Ford said, “It’s a testament to the power of film that most of you, maybe not me included, weren’t even born when most of these movies were made.”
