Patricia Richardson on SAG-aftra Election: ‘Ken Howard Does Not Get a Mandate’

21 August 2015 6:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

SAG-aftra’s political battles are going to intensify in the wake of an improved showing in Thursday’s election by the opposition Membership First faction.

Ken Howard was re-elected to a two-year term to the presidency over “Home Improvement” star Patricia Richardson with 53.7% of the vote with 16,233 votes to Richardson’s 13,976 — a margin far closer than in the 2013 race when Howard handily defeated Esai Morales.

And Howard’s running mate Jenny O’Hara lost to Membership First’s Jane Austin for the secretary-treasurer slot. Austin also defeated Howard’s ally Clyde Kusatsu for the presidency of the Los Angeles local.

Ken Howard does not get a mandate from this election,” Richardson told Variety. “This puts a lot more pressure on him to push harder in negotiations.”

Howard’s Unite For Strength slate has dominated SAG-aftra since it was created in 2012 and in the last three years of SAG. The actor, »

SAG-aftra’s Ken Howard-Patricia Richardson Contest Intensifies

14 August 2015 4:47 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With final voting less than a week away, the contest for the SAG-aftra presidency between Ken Howard and Patricia Richardson has gone into the trench warfare stage.

Richardson, best known as the star of “Home Improvement,” has largely eschewed attacking Howard during the two months since declaring her candidacy but has become perturbed over campaign assertions by Howard’s Unite For Strength faction that Richardson’s allies in the Membership First faction never closed any “major new contracts.”

“What Unite For Strength has done is outrageous and just not fair,” she told Variety. “It’s a lie. We’ve been trying really hard to not attack Ken because we all have the same enemy — the producers, who love this kind of infighting.”

The Membership First website has addressed the issue by listing four contracts that it negotiated while it was in power and asserting on its site, “Contrary to what »

Trailer for Visions starring Isla Fisher and Anson Mount

11 August 2015 2:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of its release next month, a new poster and trailer have arrived online for Blumhouse Production’s Visions, which sees Isla Fisher leading a cast that also includes Anson Mount, Eva Longoria, Joanna Cassidy, Jim Parsons and Gillian Jacobs. Check them out here…

Leaving her hectic city lifestyle behind, young mother-to-be Eveleigh (Fisher) joins her husband David (Mount) at their beautiful new vineyard home only to be plagued by terrifying noises and visions of a sinister hooded figure. No one else hears or sees these hallucinations, not even David, who grows increasingly worried about his wife’s well-being.

Desperate to prove her sanity, Eveleigh hunts down locals who reveal the haunted history of the vineyard in which she now resides. But when the pieces come together, the answer is far different – and more dangerous to her and her baby – than she ever imagined.

Visions is set for release on September 17th. »

Odd Mom Out Review – Bravo’s Rich-Hating Comedy Hopes To Wow

7 June 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

There’s no shortage of material when you’re staring in disbelief at the ridiculously rich, or making fun of them, but Odd Mom Out (built around Jill Kargman’s novels) has a strange feeling of over-familiarity.

Kargman stars as the “normal” forced into the world of New York’s super-elite, and while her daily routine is very similar to that of your average person tuning in (perhaps minus the walking around in her underwear all the time), she finds herself having to rub elbows with people she would rather have nothing to do with an awful lot of the time.

Said forced contact comes by way of school, and the mommy insanity that goes along with a Kindergarten by and for the hopelessly vapid. Although, new entrants in the fabulous world of intolerable people are Jill’s brother-in-law, and his wife, now that they’ve sold their bagel franchise for about $700 million. »

TV Review: Bravo’s ‘Odd Mom Out’

5 June 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Odd Mom Out” comes to Bravo with a clear voice and point of view. It’s just that the perspective warrants such marginal interest or sympathy as to significantly narrow its appeal. Featuring Jill Kargman as a Manhattanite whose privileged life pales next to the wanton affluence of the blow-dried moms that surround her, the show, created by Kargman, taps into a legitimate strain of yuppie angst — that somebody is able to provide better for their pampered brats than you can. But a smattering of funny lines in this scripted sitcom doesn’t make Bravo’s fictitious housewives more than passable company.

Actress and author Kargman plays Jill Weber, whose husband, Andy (“The Office’s” Andy Buckley), is a successful lawyer with whom she has three kids. The filthy rich, however, beginning with Andy’s blue-blooded family, heavily populate their extended circle in New York’s Upper East Side. Presided »

Ken Howard Weighs Another Term as SAG-aftra President

26 May 2015 1:59 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With nominations opening this week, Ken Howard is considering seeking a second term as national president of SAG-aftra.

Howard, 71, told Variety on Tuesday that he’s not ready to make an announcement on his candidate status but will fairly soon. He will have a month to decide, since the deadline for submitting nominating petitions is June 26.

He’s headed SAG-aftra since it was created three years ago and easily defeated Esai Morales and two other challengers in the merged union’s first election in 2013. Howard was first elected as SAG president as a moderate in 2009 and re-elected in 2011 — winning both times on a platform advocating the merger of SAG and AFTRA, which was overwhelmingly approved by members.

Nominating petitions are available Wednesday for the presidency, secretary-treasurer, national board seats, local board seats and convention delegate slots. Ballots will be mailed July 21 with results will be announced Aug. 20.

"Blade Runner": Sci-fi Classic Back In UK Cinemas

18 March 2015 7:02 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Mark Mawston

A great many people think Blade Runner is the greatest science fiction film ever made. It’s certainly one of the best; the Metropolis of its time when it comes to the realization of future cityscapes on film. Flying police cars aside, the main thing that rings true is that it was one of the first films to show a “used” future; a future where over-population and global warming feature as key elements. Of the four or so versions of the film that exist, from test print to original theatrical release to directors cut, the most complete, albeit with a running time of just one minute longer than some of the others, is that of The Final Cut, which the BFI have chosen to close its Days Of Fear And Wonder science fiction season. It is this version that has the Ridley Scott seal of approval and »

Tears in rain? Why Blade Runner is timeless

14 March 2015 5:32 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

One of the greatest science fiction films ever made is about to be screened across the country in its definitive version. With its towering cityscapes, dreamy Vangelis soundtrack and nods to film noir, the movie offers a vision of a dystopian future devoid of human emotion

It’s entirely apt that a film dedicated to replication should exist in multiple versions; there is not one Blade Runner, but seven. Though opinions on which is best vary and every edition has its partisans, the definitive rendering of Ridley Scott’s 1982 dystopian film is most likely The Final Cut (2002), about to play out once more in cinemas across the UK. Aptly, too, repetition is written into the movie’s plot (there are spoilers coming), that sees Deckard (played by Harrison Ford) as an official bounty hunter (or “Blade Runner”) consigned to hunt down, one after the other, four Nexus-6 replicants (genetically-designed artificial human beings, »
