Union tells actors not to work on pandemic film 'Songbird'

They do not work order on one of the first films in production after the Corona virus closures, the Screen Actors Guild American Federation of Television and Radio actors or telling members not to work on the pandemic thriller Songbird, saying filmmakers have not been transparent about safety protocols and not sign the proper agreements with the union actors had reportedly been rehearsing remotely for the film, which is being produced by Michael Bay, directed by Adam Mason and starring Demi Moore. The filmmakers did not immediately respond to requests for me.
The Models' Bill of Rights
"We work together to Create the models bill of rights. This movement aims to enhance transparency for models in what to expect when doing business with their agencies. I believe this is something that's not taught to any model wasn't taught to me. That's for sure I had to learn things first hand and through trial and error. And I'm sort of out here trying to help models avoid making similar mistakes. The models bill of rights is started off as a document that help models read contracts understand how payments work basically understand their contractual obligations. But now it's extended to include safety in studios as well as it's become a hotline where models can reach out to myself or Federico and gain this awareness and help if they're in a predicament and I would say. Most models are in a financial predicament. And this is something. That isn't really talked about so I kind of I'm here to talk about that. Okay I know a while back. Maybe before. Industry model management was a thing. He kicked an agency out of pure fifty-nine he. He banned that agency from sending models fifty-nine studios for their mistreatment of the models. He's stood up for this a couple of times. Federico is very passionate about the safety of models and in fact. He really helped me when I was experiencing financial duress at with an agency Correct he abandoned agency that was not paying their models because in shooting at the studio That model would never receive that paycheck and he wanted to not just say something but do something and I believe. I admire how actionable Federico is and I've strived to be that way and the models bill of rights really is a call to action. It started as just awareness. And now we're trying to actually implement change and with other studios now in New York as well as agencies so there are some new laws in New York state. Where were you involved in in making sure those wind a place? I was not involved. I'm very happy about that. What I refer to when I say studio safety is that there are seventeen studios in New York. Only two of them are up to code major photo studio correct and up to code meaning in analogy I use. Would you walk into an elevator? If you knew it was out of service probably not But when you walk into like thirteen of these studios as a model. You don't know that it's not up to code and it's not up to code for a reason. Meaning there are some sort of hazard or there's some reason that the studio didn't want to be you know approved. They'd never applied to be functioning working space. So this actually shocked because that would expose them to a Department of Buildings Inspector Act and it's very expensive to be up to code. It's hundreds of thousands of dollars I personally know this because I come from my family. Business wherein manufacturing so we have chemicals in Leominster Massachusetts and in order for us to be functioning factory. We have to be up to code and it's very expensive and it's very arduous process but I understand how these things work so when I realized that I was actually shocked. That models are alike. Sent to these places that are dangerous and they might not even know what that means in terms of the result is if a mall were to get injured. She wouldn't be covered by insurance so if a light fell on her if she got burned that's on her right because if the building isn't incompliance they can't get insurance. Correct okay. So there's all these photography studios operating without valid insurance personal injury. Yes that's insane so if the knowledge is there why aren't they being reported to the building violations or whatever it is how? How are people afraid to report them? I I feel like these conversations. Are It's going to culminate to that? But we ran into this with the garment center. A lot of the buildings in the garments are out of compliance with the Building Code. And they're not allowed to To do major renovations to the building. They're not gonNA fall down but but they can't do anything because we've had this zoning issue with the Save the Garment Center and and preserving the garments which were losing very soon A legal fight was lost but Yeah you can have a perfectly functional building that just doesn't have sign off from the buildings which prevents them from doing major renovation. So you can really change the building right. You have to use the existing spaces and I believe that this is an imminent threat because the the market is shifting where advertisement is not so much still photo photos anymore but a lot of video and so you don't have that cold camera flash. You have moving pictures. Which is the same caliber. N- scale as a film set. It's just not treated as such in terms of the precautions that were taking and so the issue of like the lights being very hot or falling on. Someone are even more pertinent. Now because most people in the studios are shooting video. We're not just doing just straight photography anymore. Yeah and if you actually walk around. So for instance you'll see retail spaces that have instead of a photo on their storefront. It's a video when films are being shot. There's an ambulance outside. I've been on film sets. It's just it's it's treated with a lot of precaution. And this is not the case for a modeling set with comes from the motion picture unions and from the insurance requiring correct which is another thing that I have been sort of like baffled by. Is that a model does not have the same protections as an actress A model the rates are arbitrary It's non union when you're an actress. There's the screen actors guild there's certain rates depending on the caliber of the project and everything is like pretty straightforward as a model though the rate that's given to buy your agent is very arbitrary and in other element that bothers me is that that rate might not be the actual rate the client offered so so this is a transparency issue. Doesn't matter what angle you look at the Modeling Industry. It's just crooked and corrupt. I hate to say it. But it's the reality and one thing I noticed about the podcast is that you guys use are in business in the same sentence in sort of where are in business meet and I'm fascinated by that that synergy and I feel like that lacks so much in the modeling industry and just with my background's specifically I went to business school in Boston. I got my MBA at Babson. So when I came into the modeling industry while I had no experience as a model all I could hold onto was my business acumen so I started kind of folk holes of the industry and thinking almost treating it like a case study right like this industry is flawed and his modeling industry. Or is it. I mean it's part of other industries but is it an industry on itself professor. Yeah and that's an interesting point. You bring up because I actually watched an interview with Cindy Crawford and Kaya Gerber the other day for Vogue and Cindy was saying how when she was starting out doing catalog in Chicago. Modeling wasn't considered or seen as a real job right. We all know that this has changed significantly the other day. Kylie Jenner sold majority share of her cosmetics company for six hundred million dollars. She's now a billionaire model. Her sister Kendall gets a quarter million dollars per post on instagram. The the sisters their models. I mean this is a big business and I there promoters. Well yes but why I think I think Kendall is a model. She's a runway model. She's a model but she doesn't get paid for her face. She gets paid because their faces already famous. Now that's I mean that's part of why her face became famous. Was her modeling. Not Most of it and a lot of people have that issue with the whole nepotism and that's another whole thing with modeling and but the regardless of that is that there's just so many models nowadays. It's not like this. It's there's less mystery about it. There's a lot of agencies. There's a lot of models but there aren't the regulations in place needed to keep up with how this industry has grown I feel like it's behind and these conversations I think will force there to be some sort of actions

Jamie Foxx on his latest film 'Just Mercy'
"Is popcorn where we tell you what's happening at the movies and there's a great movie out right now for your c called just mercy that has Michael Jordan and then also this ask Jamie Foxx. Yes you're not from give it up now you either are or execute chicks you have to face. This is all right Jamie before I lose complete control interview which would be fine but you made a great movie and Jess Mercy you dead. I think this is a true story. True story I think this is the opposite is this is the most important movie I've ever done Yeah I got yes because of who it's about and what it's about Brian Stephen. A lawyer of WHO's played wonderfully about Michael Jordan. who his whole life is? A Journey is exonerating people that are on death row of wrongly accused and and when I met Bryan Stevenson I was blown away about how much he's done. And what is and it's been sort of under the radar so I applaud Michael Jordan for being the biggest star in the world But always coming back to the movies like this for our cultural for us to educate is to uplift us to give us hope and like I said it is the most important movie I've ever the and who do you play. Play Walter mcmillen Watson Watt's McDonald's amendment south in in Alabama who own pulping business chop down trees for living on his way home on a country road he gets pulled over by the sheriff. And the sheriff says you killed someone it city he's never been in Never met this person. They say you're going to jail. And they put him in jail. Put him on death row without a trial he was on death. Row without a trial for six years and I've been death row before studying for movie and the one thing that I knew about death row was at the worst thing you give. A person is hope because they know that at some point At any point they could be taken off to either electric chair or however they're going to be a or expired but hope walks in in the form of Bryan Bryan Stevenson. Who has played wonderfully Michael Jordan? He takes the case. This is a nineteen eighty six. which wasn't that long ago and They pulled off the miraculous And exonorated a person who had never been in. This has never happened in Alabama person to be exonerated off of death row. And that's the store and what was amazing about how our director destination destined and Michael Be put the movie together on how it brings. Everybody and you saw this Toronto in Toronto. Where just make people crazy and you got I? I don't know eight minutes and thirteen minutes standing ovation but what I really appreciated about the movie. Was it allowed everyone in this movie tested in front of a all black audience at a ninety seven now we expect it for that to be in a high number then they tested in the mid West in front of mostly white audience and we what they say it tested at a ninety eight so that lets you know that the work that was done in the movie as the adapt tation of a book really really got it done. It really worked. Let's look at a clip from your performance Sir Ingest Mercy Screen Actors Guild nominated for I godless. So let's look list from Harvey all know what it is here. You get from the moment you ball buddy over these white folks and make them laugh and try to make him like it. Whatever that is and you say yes or no man but when it's your turn ain't got no thanks take evidence and all the witnesses they got eight thing another matter when all your thank is I looked like a WHO could kill somebody? That's not what I think the way. You're not looking at him and then you do. It's just it's devastating because he wants to get it out. He wants him to hear what was going on in in this soul and then that look. I'm sure he's done it a few times that look to see if what I told hold him really landed. Sometimes people can be in those positions and it's no pad pencil numbers. You're just another person. I'm on my way. But when he looked up so Michael be looking back at him. Engaged young ready ready to take on whatever this whatever this monster is designed to do at the end it was another thing too. I studied a film that that move to me was made famous to me by Al Pacino in The Godfather and if you remember I think it was Zena he was when he was getting ready to kill him at the dinner table. Yeah when he says. I'm going to talk Doc Italian till Michael foresaken and as he goes to talk. Al Pacino Leans up to listen but he looks this way first and and then he engaged so as you study the the art. There's certain things that you bring along with you. That are really effective. Well it sure sure works and that's what you want. You don't just see this movie and say you want to talk to people about it and you see this. You gotTa feel it because there's instead of just anger and just rage. There's a sense of. We can do something about it if we fail. Were trying to do something it. Listen the thing about. This is what I enjoyed about the way. The movie plays out is said when people leave this movie. They feel like they want to get involved. What can I do? What can I do to change his narrative? What can I do to pull back to mass of some of these injustices? And that's what's been so fulfilling with this film because Brian I Steve Isn't who still going out there every day of about his job. He needs it. He needs that people to know that these things are going on because it helps in his endeavors in taking these people and trying to you know put their lives back together. Well Walter Your Johnny on on these calls a lot of things. But he's the kind of person that grows up in this Alabama neighborhood and it was. It's very ironic in the movie. How everybody there even racist Alabama is saying? This is Monroe Kennedy. This is where Harper Lee wrote to them walking bird right which is about Wow this racist that. They don't even say dangerous sort of bouncing off her celebrity. What well here's the thing is like like I'd say all the time there were some very interesting things that wall to sit? Did I looked like a man that could kill somebody. This is the perception that were attacking what tackling the perception that a black man automatically you feel like there is some some of villainous or ominous thing that he possesses therefore of when he is accused of something. We sorta turn the other way. You know we don't necessarily we give them the benefit of the doubt. I can't tell you how many times when when there's something going on on television and there's there's some type of crime every black person to tell you man. I hope it's not a black person. Listen you know why because it continues the narrative but continues The procession so that's what we're what we were tackling in in the movie Walter. Walter says you're guilty from the day you were born now. That was something that we actually ad-libbed in the in the script really. Yeah because yes that's my line Growing up in a southern place in Texas in Texas and being met with early age age racism being called As a young kid it baffled me I was eight years old. My grandfather told me go. Get some gas and gas like twenty five cents a gallon. So he's bringing some gas. I I had to walk on the other side of the tracks. Go get the gas but I think the gas only came up to eighteen cents and I need to get to seven cents back but I didn't WANNA leave the gas out you know so I had to walk into the place I walk in and the guy says. Hey what are you doing while you bring the gas. And I looked at him. I said hey eight. I'm only eight nine. Remember marching back to my grandfather and told him what happened. My grandfather went over and talked to the man told him. You know. That's not nice and whatever you told them what He. He squatted. But I couldn't couldn't wrap my mind around a grown man looking at a child insane and saying that and so that's where I got the line I said I don't have nothing to do with this. I was just born. How can I change this? Why are you so angry at me just because because I was born? Yeah so when you're born into the world and this label is on you just because you're born. I thought that that was something that Walter that we should Add to the to the layer of his character saying I was just born because that's all of us were only just
The 2020 Oscar Nominations Din't Have To Look Like This
"We now know who was nominated for this year's Academy Awards and who wasn't there were no women pick for the directing Oscar and only one person of color. Harriet Stars Cynthia. Rio was among the twenty acting nominees. He's but what if like Hollywood does in a few movies. There was an alternate history to the Oscars. Franklin Leonard wrote about his imagined Academy Award nominations for the Washington Post. He's the creator of the blacklist an annual compilation of much admired but unpredicted movie scripts Franklin. Welcome back to the show. Thanks for having me the back. So we're not so sad. Your column is almost funny. It could have been a satirical piece from the onion. What motivated it? Well here's here's the interesting thing right like it. It didn't necessarily need to even be ready satire if anything you know. The article was written as a as a list of all of the people could reasonably have been nominated in place of those who got nominated and I think that there are additional people. That aren't even mentioned in the article. who also could have gotten reasonably? We nominated and no one would have batted an eye except for the fact that it would have been unusual that all the nominees people of color that all of the directing on these women which you know is so far from our reality only because history would suggest that all the nominees should be white and all the directors should be met. Well let's talk about that right. Because there was a lot of great artistic accomplishment from people who weren't nominated I think about hustlers from Lorraine Skafar you on the star Jennifer Lopez Lulu Wong the director of the Farewell Greta Gerwig who made little women performances by Alfie Woodard and clemency Aquafina and farewell the entire cast a parasite right nominated for best picture. None of the actors were so. What's the disconnect in your mind between the great work and the recognition or lack of recognition of that? Great Work Work. I mean the short answer is racism and sexism in the intersection between the two. I think that there is a fundamental lack of appreciation for the work of women directors and the work of Actors of Color. I mean I. I saw it in on my twitter timeline. And yesterday people saying Oh Jennifer for Lopez wasn't really acting playing herself you know and I think there's an assumption that you know the actors in parasite or somehow that's just who they are. They're not actually performing. If you've been in a room with a with Song King Ho you know that that was a heck of a performance. So I think that the assumptions and the appreciation and the value that we give to these performances into these directing Sort of accomplishments is diminished. Because of. WHO's doing it? Someone told me you know. Why are you trying to inject politics politics into these decisions? And it's not that I'm trying to inject politics into it is the politics are already in it. I'd like to see them removed or at least an acknowledgement the extent to which the politics there. We're talking with blacklist Creator Franklin Leonard About this year's Oscar nominations earlier this morning a read a piece in the Guardian about how award. Nominations granted people of Color especially women are often for subservient roles like slaves nannies maids. And that's movies like twelve years a slave that help babble even Roma g think there's some truth in that for the few women and women of color who are recognized they play a certain kinds of part and not another kind of role Yeah I think it's pretty arguable. You look at the list of women of color that have been nominated in London You know I suppose. In theory those nomination is progress because She's not playing a slave. The entire time in actually is playing a freedom fighter rescue slaves but no I look I think that there is again and there are some by a large percentage of certain demographics of American culture and really sort of Western culture culture about what role is appropriate for women specifically women of Color. They are far more comfortable with women in those roles than they are. If you stray too far afield and I suspect Jennifer Lopez playing a stripper gets one over on the men that she is supposed to be dancing for left left. Some significant percentage of members who the Kademi uncomfortable since actors are by far the biggest block of Academy voters. Why do the Oscar? Nominations differ from the screen actors guild. which nominated Jamie Foxx from just mercy the Peter Neon go from us and Jennifer Lopez from hustlers I suspect it's age. I I again this. I'm I'm not an expert on this. You can probably correct me if I'm wrong. But the threshold to join SAG is a lot lower in terms of career accomplishment than the threshold to join the academy and therefore it sort of seems inevitable that the academy voters are probably at least the mean significantly older than your average Sag goater and given the changes that have happened in the industry particularly over the last twenty years. I suspect that has something to do with the different nominations. The academy to a certain extent stint can only recognize movies that get made even if Oscar voters still ignored a lot of great work from underrepresented filmmakers and actors. Now you've worked as a creative executive. I can Hollywood so from where you sat on that side of the table. What needs to change in the kinds of movies that are made and who gets to make them so the academy voters voters at least can pick from a wider pool of eligible performances? Films having the same changes that needs to be made in any hiring environment where there's endemic matthias you know. We need to hire a labor force. That's more representative of the culture. As a whole we need to empower them to tell the stories. If they're most excited about telling we you need to make sure they have the resources to tell those stories well And then I think that combined with the changing demographics of the academy membership. I think you'd see a real shift over time in what gets awarded. I think it's really important to remember that you know the reason this conversation sort of pivots around the academy as bad as the time. I'm during the year when the industry is the most visible to the world and I think that it's the time when you know they're they're they're the most outside pressure can be exerted and it's it's the clearest opportunity community to make these cases right that no women were nominated for best director. It's a lot easier to understand that than it is to understand that ninety percent of the movies that are directed a studios are directed by men by so. I think that that's why this conversation happens around this time of year but the real issue and the one that matters is who Who tells the stories of our time? Do they have the resources to tell them. And do they have the autonomy to tell them as they see fit. So let me ask you this last question. We know that the academy I suspect is probably a little mortified. That only one person of color was nominated in the acting races and that no women were many directors. Is it going to be same as it always was the year from now two years from now. How quickly are we not going to be having this conversation? You know I think that the end of the day we're doing with small data sets and you know the IT. It takes a long time to make movies put movies into the marketplace and then run them through the award season so you know even if everything changed as of today we probably wouldn't be looking at a major change until twenty twenty two and as we all know Those changes tend to be even more glacial than the industry. So it's hard to say you know hopefully within this decade Lord knows. I'm going to do everything to make sure it happens faster. Franklin Leonard is the creator of the blacklist. His piece in the Washington Post is called the twenty twenty Oscar Oscar. Nominations didn't have to look like this. Franklin thanks so much for coming back on the show. Thanks for having
"Joker" nominated for 11 Oscars; 3 other films get 10 nods each
"Joker got what eleven nominations what's with this movie is that that good yeah joker getting a loved the most nominations with eleven which is a little bit surprising for a couple reasons one it was one of the earliest films to come out of the nominated films in early October which usually the films that are most on people's minds are the ones that come out later in November and December so that was a little bit of a surprise that I got so many also the movie was very divisive when it first came out with its scenes of violence and gun violence particularly a lot of people thought that maybe academy voters wouldn't be able to stomach it Joaquin Phoenix is fantastic in it but very hard to walk sometimes as well so a lot of people weren't sure if the voters would warm to something like that but as we saw the golden globes where he was not only nominated he won and he won last night at the critics choice awards as well he's probably on his way to a Screen Actors Guild Award win this Sunday so the film doing very well and getting a lot of nominations showing that academy voters do have love for it now getting nominations doesn't necessarily mean you're going to win the most nominated film doesn't always get the most wins but you're only getting a lot denomination shows a lot a lot of you know another a notable snub Jennifer Lopez I mean she put in that performance that fantastic performance and hustlers she's from performing at the Superbowl this is supposed to be her year a lot of people thought that she would get a nomination and were very surprised that she did not and set out to a bigger issue in that in the acting category nineteen of the twenty acting nominations went to white men and women once again remember a couple years ago we had the hash tag Oscars so white trending this year it seems to be coming back a little bit again only one person of color nominated in the acting categories that was simply a Revo for Herriot lot of people felt Aquafina should have gotten the nod for the fare well where she's dogs you've gotten some nominations for some other wards as well she actually wanted to golden globes so a lot of people saying they should have been more people of color in there and Jennifer Lopez obviously being one of

Screen Actors Guild Reveals Award Nominees
"Welcome to the frame Steven Cuevas filling in for John Horn our broadcast was preempted today for special coverage of the presidential impeachment proceedings. But we bring you this special podcast addition to talk about the screen actors Guild Award nominations which were announced today and what better person to call on John Horn. WHO's on assignment assignment in New York? Hey John Hey Steven how are you. Okay so let's start with the nominees for outstanding performance by a male actor in a leading role. What do we got so the nominees? He's were Christian. Bale from Ford versus Ferrari Leonardo di Caprio for once upon a time in Hollywood Adam driver from marriage story Joaquin Phoenix from joker car. And then probably the surprise in the category is turned Edgerton. Who Played Elton John and rocket man? If you start looking at who isn't in I think. Probably the most was notable exclusion as Robert Deniro for his lead role in the Irishman. He is getting a lifetime. Achievement Award Screen Actors Guild Award. So maybe that was part of the math but Jonathan Pryce was not nominated from two popes. Adam Sandler was not nominated from uncut gems and also left out of the competition was Antonio Banderas for pain and glory. Yeah it was a little surprised to see Bandera slept out you and I talked about that film and I think we agree that it was kind of career. Defining performance Let's move on to the lead actress. Category Who have their we have Cynthia Areso from? Harriet Scarlett Johansson from marriage story. The neon go from us. Charlie's therein Erin from bombshell and Renee Zellweger from Judy not a lot of surprises there. There were two women of color. The surprise I guess was that that search or Ronin was not nominated for little women some people thought Aquafina might have gotten in from the farewell. In fact little women did really badly today in the screen actors Guild L. Dominations and how about supporting role in the mail categories some pretty juicy performances. There are some really good pegues. Jamie Fox was nominated for Justice mercy. Tom Hanks Sup- Played Fred. Rogers and a Beautiful Day in the neighborhood. A couple of actors from the Irishman Al Pacino. And Joe Patchy and then Brad Pitt from once upon a time in Hollywood I said earlier. Jonathan Pryce was not nominated for playing Pope Francis in the two popes. Anthony Hopkins was not nominated for playing Pope Benedict in the two popes as well and this is also one of those weird categories in terms of. WHO's supporting and WHO's lead? It's one of those things where the studios can kind of say to the screen actors guild and the academy and other words as we think. This person is a lead this person's supporting I mean. They're two popes are mostly onscreen for the the same time. And you have Brad Pitt. Who is up for supporting actor? Leonardo DiCaprio for lead actor and once upon a time in Hollywood. I think he put a stop. Watch on it Leo. Joe Might have like twenty seconds or screen time. I don't know it feels like that's kind of tricky. Math and Tom Hanks's probably star of a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Even though he shares there's Screen time with another character again. The studios got to decide of the actors. Don't vote somebody in that category than they don't get nominated yes. Some people might be especially puzzled by the Tom. Hanks category for him winding up in the supporting actor. Can you explain that a little bit like why why that is well. I think if you look at that that film you can say that even though. It's a movie about Fred Rogers. It's really about the journalist whose life is transformed by meeting with Fred Rogers and something similar happened. In the supporting actress. Category according to Variety Kathy Bates is in this film by Clint Eastwood. Call Richard Jewel rule and she's been getting some awards attention in the supporting actress. Category but according to Variety Warner brothers mistakenly submitted fitted her as a lead actress for the screen actors Guild Awards and she didn't get nominated and she didn't get nominated for supporting actress because they had submitted committed error in probably the wrong category. Well who else do we have in the category of supporting actress. Another pretty strong category. Laura dern from marriage stories Scarlett Johansson another nomination for Joe Joe Rabbit this time and then to actors from bombshell Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie and finally Jennifer Lopez from Hustler's right. We have so we have Scarlett Johansson nominated for both lead and supporting actress rare A little bit but you know pretty. Good Year for Scarlett Johansson. I don't think you can fault any of those performances. I think they were both really strong. And you know she's playing opposite. Visit Adam driver. Who was nominated for marriage story? Joe Joe Rabbit as we're GONNA say in just a second got a little bit more attention as well so both nominations. I'd say we're served in both. Were in really good films. Let's finish up with the outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture. Is it true that this winter is often a predictor for the Academy Award Best Picture winner in historically. Yes that has been true but if you look at the last two best picture winner shape of water and green book they weren't even even nominated for the Sag Ensemble Award so yes. It is a good thing to be nominated for in terms of Academy Awards because it's important to note the actress. Branch ranch is the biggest branch in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. So what the actors do in the screen actors. Guild awards is often a good harbinger of what the Oscar Asker voters might do. So the nominees for on Samba were bombshell. Which I think is a little bit of a surprise? Good news for that film. The Irishman Joe Joe Rabbit once upon a time time in Hollywood and the real surprise in this category was parasite which is a Korean film. It's only the second foreign language film in Sag History. The other one one was life is beautiful to get a nomination for the ensemble award. I think it's really important for parasite. I think it's interesting. THAT MARRIAGE BRIDGE STORY WASN'T NOMINATED FOR ENSEMBLE. Neither was little women and so all the power seemed to be going to parasite right now and I would have to say say once upon a time in Hollywood and the Irishman well there you have it this year's screen actors Guild Award nominations in the film category. John you may resume get your New York theatre going. Thank you Steve. And I'll go do it right now

Union for Actors Raises Concerns Around Deep Fake Technology in Hollywood
"Digital video technology is advancing fast and that gives Hollywood a lot more creative freedom in storytelling like the uncanny resurrection of deceased actor Peter Cushing in star wars rogue one. It's no surprise there are some frightening implications that come with eerily accurate digital simulations or manipulations of real people and the Union that represents actors is raising the alarm for how damaging deep fake video technology can be to its members. Eric Garner covered this topic for the Hollywood reporter where he's a senior editor for Law and public policy and he began explaining how even though Hollywood has been developing visual effects for years deep fake technology comes with some unique unique challenges what makes us different is the ability to really use technology to blur the lines between falseness and reality in such a hyper focused way that people really can't tell the difference. That's what we mean by. Deep fakes deserve essentially video versions of Photoshop and they've been used for political use. There's a famous deep fake video of Nancy Pelosi one of Hillary Clinton so Howard deep fakes affecting Hollywood Hollywood right now well in several ways one is in a pornographic round where you know on a lot of porn sites. You might see celebrity doing things that she never did in real life and this is a concern too many actresses who see this as a violation of their privacy we also see deep fake technology being incorporated in to explore the boundaries of filmmaking where you know you might see something in deceptively edited in in such a way that you can't really tell that it actually didn't happen so you might see documentary made where deep big are used to showcase a point it has it's pluses and minuses. It's good features sure so bad features. A lot of people are concerned these days about the political realm and the pornographic around but I think everything needs to be explored. There is obviously a potentially positive use and I'm thinking say of an actor like Carrie Fisher who has passed away and everybody who is a part of the Carrie Fisher team says that if there's a way to bring her back to life essentially in the latest star wars movie using video technology that that is okay but there are also some laws that have been proposed some New York that are trying to get to the darker aspect of deep fake so what we're New York legislators talking about sure they wanted to make the ability to control one name amy image and likeness as a property right as opposed to just a privacy right and they proposed barring things using a digital replica decreed sexually explicit material they wanted to extend the protection action ones like this past that and they wanted to create a registry whereby the heirs of famous people could document their official control over their relatives name damage <hes>. It's a very big and broad law that with really. Really shake up things and give people both the right to stop the fakes as well as the ability to license everything from the holograms and what is the industry's perspective on this and where do people like the leaders of the screen actors guild where to their allegiances fall the actors are extremely in favour of doing such a thing they are concerned about their members privacy and their ability to control exploitation but then there are the studios broadcasters journalists and others who worried that you know cracking down on this sort of thing in such a word way my interfere with free speech. We're talking talking with Eric Gardner at the Hollywood reporter about deep fakes. Somebody you quote in your article. <hes> law professor at Loyola named Jennifer Rothman and she says that there's a potential problem with the idea of assigning rights of publicity implicity is a property right in that maybe through something like a bankruptcy that could be an asset that is claimed and that the new owner of that asset could exploit your right of publicity as if it were a transferable double asset. Is that directly or is that something that could actually happen one of the things that POPs up is the potential that say celebrity gets into debt and creditors my book to obtain foreclose <music> on that celebrities likeness rights or in a divorce a spouse might claim that the likeness bright's our community property and so you get to these sorts of things and you have all these sorts of interesting scenarios happen where someone might not be able to control their own likeness and while we haven't seen too many disputes about this so far we have seen a few actually the Goldman family they WANNA try to foreclose on O._J.. Simpson like yes right. Have they been successful. They blocked him from registering official accounts on twitter they weren't but that was before legislative started thinking about ways to distinguish between privacy and publicity. You know being crosby's his ex wife tried to go to four to get a piece of his publicity rights so these sorts of issues have been popping up slowly and I would expect to see more of that especially on new legislation

But about twenty years ago, I appeared of at a roast for Ronnie Schell local comic who was later in Gomer Pyle and diabetes association called me up and said would you like to be at the roast in the audience, and I was a little pushy? I well, I know runny really well put me on the day. I'll write some jokes. And there was a long pause. And the guy said, okay, I show up at the Hilton early and in walk these celebrities who are going to be on the day, Harvey Korman Jerry Van Dyke, Phil Hartmann, Fred Willard. Tim Conway and me I like told the guy sick I go on I or I'm out at year. Gotta wait. I got away with a three minutes and the rest of the guys helped for Tim Conway was unquestionably the funniest he just stood up at the microphone and looked out at the audience for a long time until we were all laughing hysterically. He hadn't said a word. He and I got spent time with an after the roast with him and Harvey. I had done a movie with Harvey called merica thought check it out. It's a it's an old classy, and I'm sort of the poor man's Tim Conway, but you've already said that he was on Mikhail's navy. And of course, the Carol Burnett show he came out about nineteen seventy five halfway through the very long run. And was instantly the star of the show. I never missed. Tim Conway on the Carol Burnett show, you remember the old man he used to do them you help a walk. Yeah. That's. I'm getting close to shuffling myself elapsed, intern when I think back on that show. I think about the wide scope of the characters that he played that that's going to take a lot of talent to not only be funny, but befuddling and all these different characters embrace, the very heart of improvisation was which is you give me a premise in my answer is yes. And he if any had the resources to do it he could go anywhere with any suggestion. And didn't we love what he did to Harvey Korman? Oh, we have to because he always made him laugh. It seems like he really liked to make them laugh. Well, he told me you worked on the movie he said, I can't even look at the guy I even dressing 'cause he slaves me.

And he was a half of a comedy team morning team in Cleveland, his partner was Ernie Anderson who was later become the big voice of ABC and the father of the filmmaker Anderson can't remember his full name.

"Joanna Robinson. And I am joined today from remote locations by our digital director. Mike HOGAN pillow Joanna and from the snowy peaks of Park City. Our chief critic Richard Lawson. Hello, richard. Hello. We get a live and in person update from Sundance in this week's episode. I'm really excited to hear. Although what you've been seeing. Yeah. No, I'm obviously like mad from L stood sickness. So take everything I say with a grain of salt, but I have to say. It wouldn't be this report without a little bit about stewed sickness, but before we get into that which is discussing potential award season contenders. For next year. We still have some this year stuff to wrap up starting with. You know, we got we got a lot of more information a bigger piece of the puzzle. This last Sunday when the Screen Actors Guild awards were held the aired on TNT. We saw a bunch of actors go up and get their starts us, and maybe cemented some narratives that we've been talking about for the past couple of months. So I guess I will start with Mike and just asks or what was what was the narrative that you feel like most got set in stone by Sunday. Well, I don't know if it's set in stone. But I feel like Rummy Malik could win best actor, which I didn't really think was the case before this clearly, you know, the Screen Actors Guild members really liked that movie and gave him best actor over. Christian bale, Bradley, Cooper, Vigo Mortenson and John David Washington. So that's definitely a very good sign for him. And then seeing Glenn Close when made me think. Okay. You know, she's in a good spot and very well could win that Oscar for best actress for the wife, and then I guess maybe cemented is my notion that Marshall Allie will win for green books that seems at this point now fairly set in stone. Yeah. I don't think there's any question really about Glenn Close. Now. I mean, I think that not only has she had these two preliminary wins in the Golden Globe. And that second word, but she's given like good speeches. And I think that now everyone's like, okay. Like, that's what we're that's how we're voting this year. That's how it's going Glenn closest telling us a story, and we have to hear the end of it, you know, toward the NFL worry. So that feel certain mersal feel certain Rami. I don't know. Like, I feel like that. I almost wonder if Christian bale, and rather Hooper are splitting vote somewhere in Rami is the one. Third-placed guy who kind of comes out the Victor. And all that. Because like, I I don't I don't know. I I guess actors. It's just everything that movie's support considering that, you know, the Atlantic article that came out about rising, or I just I'm like what why are people holding onto this movie so tightly Richard night, both tops and like immediately on we'll not immediately on a on a time zone delay or Richard coming out of a Sundance screening, whatever it was to give our maybe kind of cool takes on the sag awards on Twitter and both of us zero in on the same thing, which is when was the window of voting for the sag awards as compared to win the Atlantic article on Bryan singer came out, and that Atlantic article detailing number of accusations from young men about Bryan singer's activities rumored activities, basically, you know, a known rumor for years and years and years came out two days before the sag voting window closed. So probably most people that are cast their votes by the time that article came out, and it's not to my mind. And you ear mileage may vary. It's not. Rami Malik should be necessarily held accountable for Bryan singer's actions, of course, not. But then the sort of the press he's been giving around it, which is just sort of a blanket. I didn't know and the absence completely of any acknowledgement of it in his speech on Sunday as both a strategy and one that I don't know if he's going to rub academy voters the wrong way rubbed me the wrong way. The point that I was making on Sunday was imagined. In actress the last two years getting an Oscar for Harvey Weinstein film and going up and not making any kind of aknowledge -ment of what that meant to some other women watching were anyone watching you know, that would never happen..

Let's go back to you. Okay. Three one nine eight one seventy two hundred if you want to join the conversation and tells who you light what movies you thought should have been nominated or do you love these nominations? Let us know we are on the category for for female after an a leading role both Academy Award to on the Academy Award list. There is. Aparicio from aroma, and you're saying off the or something incredible. Yes. This is the first bit of acting. She's done ever. Really? I mean, at least on film that we've seen and it's an incredible performance, and the more you learn about how found on the director made this movie the more. You just amazed at how he just kept her in the moment there were times where she was. She didn't know what she was gonna film day to day. It was always just being spontaneous right in the moment. And I think it's magic what they created together on this. I started watching it on my on net. Flix? Yeah. And I thought well, I'm supposed to watch us on the big screen. But now Tom is giving me an article cinemas are not gonna run Roma to snub. The streaming services. Have you seen really? Yeah. Because they're trying to release it wider with the nomination. That's that's a darn shame AMC and regal at least will not be showing. So you've got to find out on the bigger screen or take your see? I have a deep tube television from nine from one thousand nine hundred nine. Yeah. So I kind of think I need to up that kind of. Well, I mean, and we're so spoiled being in Chicago, I saw it at the music box theatre. I took my sister seventy millimeter, and we were crying by the end this phenomenal piece of cinema. I mean, it's it's a shame. That's lovely. It's a shame. Because I mean, they want it in theaters as well as on streaming. I don't think there should be a van, quite frankly. So she is up for for best actress, she's not up for the Screen Actors Guild award. Now, I'll tell you my two favorites in this category. Yes. The Screen Actors Guild, my two favorites are Glenn Close. However, I have not seen the wife that on the performance. Sure. Sure. The other is I think probably the long shot for both the Academy Awards and sag is Melissa McCarthy. Sure, can you ever forgive me? The story about Louis Israel who I'd never knew anything about this. And she is she I mean, she's good. Yes, she's despicable and unlikable at some points. But then you also she does a great job of showing you that. She's really seriously depressed. Absolutely. And it's hard as a literary forger someone who's just like I'm just trying to get my work out there. And it's like, no, you're just past your prime, and that's it. But she's just so gifted at channeling all these great writers that she has this encyclopedic knowledge of it's a fascinating, psychological portrait. What's so great about McCarthy? And this is that she has this. You know, recognizable persona that we've seen in bridesmaid's. But sometimes it can be used as a crutch and she never gets into that stick ever. So really flawless entirely different character that she creates she's an angry hostile person for them. First moment, you meet her. And and I loved her for every minute of it pretty grant. We'll talk about him in a minute. Oh, yeah. The other the other nominees in the Screen Actors Guild award where lady Gaga, Emily lady Gaga. I store stars board Emily blunt in Mary Poppins returns and Libya Coleman in the favourite. And I think that seems as though in the Academy Awards she seems to be the favourite. I don't think so. Glenn Close as year entirely. It is because this is her seventh Oscar nomination, she's never won. This is her year. I really felt like as soon as she gave that amazing speech at the Globes. This was affirming her as the leader of the pack, right? Kalman's great. I actually just watched the favorite a second time right before coming over here. And it is a great tough performance. But it's interesting again, the studio politics is she really the lead. Like, I think Emma stone and Rachel vice or more the league. Frankly, that's truly an ensemble. It is very much.

He is assistant editor Roger Ebert dot com and out now, I had it written outlook dot com, and we will continue our conversation about the word season for movies.

Is break the reader from conventional expectation, and what we learn about Aden. Grace sawyer. Is the extent to which emotion is by Valent? She is both extremely loyal to her friend with whom she travels who was formerly her boyfriend to whom she tells one day in the airport on their way to the Mideast that she will no longer have sex with them that she will no longer use. Where words what the F you talking about? Response, and she is the testing ground of this novel. The question of hell for is it possible for person to go in the direction of simultaneous types of intensity insincerity without becoming again hypocritical and contradictory. The great irony of her situation is that she has come to Islam and come to this region of the world in search of something that is not ally. But in fact, she herself is living a lie by representing herself as a young boy, the one thing she can't do is to speak the truth in the place that she's chosen to be now. Again. The novel is you ride it. Sets challenges to her ability to conceal I mean, Isaac singer is writing a fable as much of this work is Shakespeare Shakespeare's. Shakespeare fall him anywhere are the beliefs. The sets of beliefs we're required to exempt in godsend to what extent did you trust that you could bring the reader to an acceptance of these extremely difficult and improbable acts of trust. Well, I think your references. Shakespeare was was useful to me. Also when I was writing I mean. The nature of the novel in many ways is such that if you establish a certain set of parameters, and if you win the reader over to the degree that he or she would like the story to continue, and they would prefer not to question its fundamental assumptions if they're enjoying what they're doing if they're if they're along for the ride, and they want to see what happens next, then they the reader will extend you a certain amount of credit because in fact, we all like to to read narratives in which improbable events occur kiss. It was this something like the reader's thing. Please John Ray and company do not take the stream away from me. I want to Fung aid in where she will go anywhere except back home. I think so I think that was my hope my thought. Somehow or other the Taliban almost filled like an invention of this novel in order to test its heroine, it's tag nest which hero..

He's the author of a new book titled Reagan an American Journey and one of the things we discussed was when Reagan became a conservative. What happened while he was in Hollywood, he became the president of the Screen Actors Guild, and he did that because it was a union, and he was a union man, but he had joined many many committees political committees while he was in Hollywood, and he came to believe that they were being infiltrated, by communists, and and people who were really too far left. He really felt like it was. Is going to bring the demise of I perhaps Hollywood, and then the Soviet Union and so- Reagan's politics began to skew from the web to the right? And he happened to have been really Powell's in Hollywood with with two actors William dick Powell and Robert Montgomery, and they were passionate Republicans, and they went to work on him. And so you can see the whole shift in the book it happens graduated, but it it it happens decided that he moved from the west to the right and really embraces conservatism spits also told me that he believes we can learn from President Reagan and his compromising with the other side of the aisle on political issues for USA radio news.

"Make a separate award. So now they've scrapped it for this year. And it sounds like we don't really know is this because they weren't exactly sure they wanna do this award. Or is there a little more insight to this? Then we'd like to think there was you'd like to think there's some purity in the voting for this. I know there's not well you'd like to think there was a little bit see the original thought for this. And this has been going on for decades. How many times you watch the Academy Awards and go oh that won best picture? I didn't see that. I really I thought this one was better than it was always the most popular movie or that that that garnered the most money at the box office never even got nominated for the most part. I mean, they're works options over the decades. But for the most part, the most popular movie never got anything, maybe a special effects award person. So about what was most I understand I understand it for achievement in certain areas. But when you give out an award for best. Picture that award is is kind of iffy. As far as who's using what criteria to judge? So the best picture is the only category that all members of sag Afra are allowed to vote for way to say after vote for the candidate words, if they have to be a member of the kademi here, a member of the academy Screen Actors Guild. I thought you have to be a member of the academy. I disagree. Rod who get to vote on the Oscars. Yeah. Wait a minute. Are you sag afro well for actors? I I you do as a member of sad for the Screen Actors Guild. Yeah. Well, that's not the Oscars. Yes. The best actor category. Oh, it's. Yes. It is. Yes. It is. No, it's not. I'll bet you one hundred million dollars. I don't have that. I'm saving it up for a trip to Disney sag awards are what you've owed on you have to be a member of the academy to vote on the Oscars. And you are not a member of the kademi. Dear, sir. I hate to inform you of that I can all of the viewers from sack from they get it from the academy. You are not a member of the academy of Motion Picture Arts and sciences right to tell you that they you you have to get accepted to that. And not everybody, you know, not even every actor who you've seen in famous films is is in that. There are a lot of people in it. But just because you're a member of the union does that mean, you're a member of the motion picture academy? So you do not vote for Oscar, sir. Checking the actors category. I will check into that. Okay. Yeah. Your on. Okay. For her next week's pizza on it. Their post next week deposit. Sure. But but. So my point. Yes is that? You're voting for best picture based on your own criteria. Whatever you make up for what you evening. Exactly. Okay. Not for who gave the best performance. Because that's one thing Watson, I gave the best performance even though that is often not necessarily for the best performance. It's one four popularity. It's one for making a statement. It's not always. The best. Whether it's performance whether its cinematography, whether it's directing whether it's a lot of. What do they call it when they issued the odds on the sports books? What are they go through a lot of? I forgot what the word is. Now were they decide which teams get what points are what over under a sportsbook. Yeah. And but they determine on. I forgot what the, but this it also happens in the Academy Awards and not always the person who gives the best performance gets the best performance. Not always the best director gets the best Russia its popularity county. Well, it's more than that. Because of the popularity contest the same people would wonder every year, so the, but the but the best picture over the years. I think they've been losing viewership. Because people don't think that they're movie gets a fair shake and that being the movie that has garnered the biggest box office, which means the most people have spent the most money on it. Sure. So it's the most popular except for Titanic, and Forrest and Forrest Gump. I cannot think of you know, those are two insanely popular movies that won the award. But but it's a very as far as the box office. Yeah. Right. Right. But it's extremely exact for. Sure exactly now have. Good movies won best picture will. Yeah. Well, there are always good. They're just the best movies tend to be smaller films. It just aren't the wide. Release action movies. I mean, like Lawrence of Arabia. He ever see that. No. Oh, all right. I have to make you give you an assignment seriously. Lawrence of Arabia. Okay. You need to see it won best picture of fantastic movie beautifully panoramic. Great acting great storytelling. Great cinematography chess. Great musical score a best picture. Yeah. Overall. Okay. It win yet. So there you go. So, but again, it's may not have won the most money that year earned the most money at the box office. I I I'd have to look at. I it was a huge huge hit wasn't. It was a huge hit. But but it may not have been the biggest hit for that year. But even even this one wasn't going to be even this new category was not going to be just based on biggest box office. Right. I mean, that's funny thing is they didn't announce the criteria. I doubt. They would have said, whoever, you know, it's not an outright like scoring title like a homerun derby that right? So they were still going to have some way you had to vote on this which really do bring this back in another year. It's going to be very weird and who would be allowed to vote on that one. If it's the most popular. The public. Oh, well, but see that really gets until weird thing where now dare people's choice award, right it. That's exactly Oscar that'd be really watering the whole thing. Exactly. Are I think enough people from the academy and from the other divisions probably said what he could get nuts. I think they probably did that Disney said, hey, we don't wanna ruin our chances on our our guy went and best picture. So let's just scrap that this year that would be the more kinda weird thing. I want some investigative reporting on that like how are these decisions being made? Well, then you need to send me out the Hollywood coming up the stories that matter with Roger badesch from the northwestern medicine newsroom on WGN radio will get to the news here in just a minute plan to attend misericordia.
