AWARDS MAKE NO GUARANTEES: Though Movies Rocks picked up an Emmy for Best Musical Direction this past weekend, the win doesn’t guarantee its future quite yet. Movies Rock was spun out of Condé Nast Media Group last December with a similar business model as the now five-year-old Fashion Rocks. Movies Rock consisted of a magazine that had Graydon Carter as editorial director and Mitch Glazer as editor, and a concert on CBS that included pop stars such as Chris Brown, Usher, Beyoncé, Busta Rhymes and LL Cool J performing iconic songs from films. Condé Nast Media Group president Richard Beckman said discussions are continuing about doing the show again, which wouldn’t happen until around June 2009, in hopes the advertising market perks up again. June would be an opportune time, said Beckman, because, “we’d like to do it before the summer blockbuster and before the holiday releases.”
