Radiohead Ineligible for BRITs, Hatching First 'Rainbow' Single

December 01, 2007 03:37:45 GMT

To retain the legacy of the rules on BRIT Awards, Radiohead's album 'In Rainbows' as well as Prince's 'Planet Earth' will not be eligible to win in the award next year.

Nominees of the BRITs are determined when a single or album enter the top 75 of U.K. charts in the past 16 months, and since 'In Rainbows' was released online with no specified price, it was therefore unable to be counted in the chart. Similarly, Prince's album was released along with a purchase of Sunday Mail that cost only $2.80 per set.

Her latest big screen project, "Rendition," which sees her being in the same scene with boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal may be a flop, still the fact could not prevent Reese Witherspoon from earning $15 million to $20 million a movie, making her a true money maker. That amount of earning has automatically placed her at the top of The Hollywood Reporter's annual list of the Highest-Paid Actresses in Tinseltown.

Angelina Jolie, notwithstanding with her starring role in the animated "Beowulf" that earns her a mere $8 million, comes second with salary also ranging between $15 million to $20. "Shrek" beauty Cameron Diaz is third with a $15-million-per-movie price tag.
