Republic also expanded into the very lucrative areas of film and television, scoring hits with the smash NBC-TV hit series The Voice and partnering with the network's Saturday Night Live for Andy Samberg's 'The Lonely Island' and AMC's The Walking Dead. Republic also released three of this year's five Oscar-nominated Best Original Songs with "Suddenly" by Hugh Jackman in Les Miserables, Norah Jones "Everybody Needs a Best Friend" in TED, and Scarlett Johansson and Joshua Bell "Before My Time" in Chasing Ice (Lava Records). In addition, they've already achieved extraordinary success with Lions Gate's The Hunger Games, Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained (Loma Vista) and this year's Oscar host, the multi-talented Grammy-nominated Seth MacFarlane.Monte and Avery were also among the first to realize the importance of collaborating with entrepreneurial ventures to expand their creative investment. To date they have enjoyed long-standing and highly successful partnerships and strategic alliances with many of the industry's leading independent labels, including Cash Money Records ( Lil Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Tyga), Big Machine ( Taylor Swift), Brushfire Records ( Jack Johnson), Republic Nashville (The Band Perry, Eli Young Band, Florida Georgia Line), Lava Records (Jessie J, Black Veil Brides), XO (The Weeknd), American Recordings (The Avett Brothers), School Boy Records (PSY) and Loma Vista (Soundgarden), among others.
