The Paperboy Movie Lee Daniels

While we’ve already railed against the use of the word “snub” when it comes to awards season, the term is still getting tossed around when it comes to any list of nominees and winners that at all shocks – and today’s Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations do indeed surprise. Some of the most eye-opening – hell, let’s just call them what they are, which is choices – include the lack of a nomination for Joaquin Phoenix or Amy Adams in The Master (though Philip Seymour Hoffman is recognized here), the major love for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, no nomination for strong favorite Emmanuelle Riva (Amour), and wacky noms like Javier Bardem for Skyfall and Nicole Kidman for The Paperboy (look how happy she is about it!). Oh, awards season, you saucy minx. Check out the full list of nominees (television, too!) after the break.


SAG will fight AFTRA!

I’m not exactly sure why SAG is holding out. A strike would be a pointless effort right now because it would go virtually unnoticed.



Yesterday at 12:01 in the AM, The Screen Actors Guild contracts ran out. Does that mean they’ll automagically strike?

Get out your light sabers! Get ready for the latest sequel to Star Wars! Alright, it’s not long ago in a galaxy far far away, but in Hollywood where the Stars are choosing sides, lining up to go toe to toe with each other and the two performers unions that govern their lives.


SAG AFTRA Strike Watch

While that might make some people breath easier, the Screen Actors Guild has to go to the bargaining table and reach an agreement if an actors strike is to be averted.

The cold wind you felt brush against you this week probably came from Hollywood instead of the IRS. After all, what’s worse: The fact that you forgot to pay your taxes and will be going to prison with Wesley Snipes forever or that The Screen Actors Guild started their contract negotiations?


Unlike the Golden Globes, the actors were on hand at the 2008 Screen Actors Guild awards.


NBC pays $5 million a year in license fees for the right to air the Golden Globes, so even without actors they are still going to air the show.


Look at the bright side, at least the show will be considerably shorter…
