SAG-aftra Election Ending Bitterly With 2000 Strike Still in Dispute

22 August 2017 5:35 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Voting is ending for a particularly acrimonious SAG-aftra presidential election with results due to be announced as early as Thursday afternoon.

The counting of the ballots, with about a quarter of the 144,000 dues-current members expected to vote, will begin at 6:30 a.m. on Thursday.

The contest has featured accusations of election fraud and bungling the recent contract negotiations (made by Esai Morales and Membership First); negligence on safety issues and allowing massive staff salaries (made by independent stuntman Pete Antico); and Membership First’s alleged incompetence in the 2008 negotiations and its long opposition to the SAG-aftra merger (made by the Unite for Strength faction headed by current president Gabrielle Carteris).

The divisions within SAG-aftra run deep and have existed for the past two decades. Remarkably, the two main factions — the moderate-leaning Unite for Strength and the self-styled progressives of Membership First — have managed to revive the debate over the six-month commercials strike in 2000.

SAG-AFTRA Presidential Election Heats Up in the Home Stretch

14 August 2017 6:26 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

With 10 days left for members to vote, SAG-aftra’s national election is seeing plenty of attacks as the union’s two major factions denounce each other in a bid to sway the 144,000 performer members.

The minority Membership First group, headed by Esai Morales, has accused the dominant Unite for Strength of bungling the recent negotiations for a new contract, which was ratified by membership on Aug. 7 by a 76-24 margin. The union’s negotiating committee was led by president Gabrielle Carteris, who’s seeking re-election.

“There are over 450 scripted television programs — yet it’s harder than ever for working actors to make a living or get pension and health credits … Because the contracts haven’t kept up with the marketplace,” Membership First said. “We do not support the new travel provisions. It’s a huge give-away that obliterates decades long negotiated travel provisions that benefited performers.”

Bella Hadid Falls in Her 'For Walking' Boots While Partying with Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin

3 August 2017 5:52 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

People tend to think that being a model is easy; it’s simply a matter of standing around and looking really good in clothes. But as anyone in the industry can tell you, behind all of those effortless editorials and Instagram shots is actually a whole lot of hard work, from getting their bodies in peak physical condition at the gym, squeezing into all of those sample-size clothes, often shooting the opposite season compared to the actual temperature outside, and providing an endless selection of poses and facial expressions even when they haven’t necessarily had a full night’s »

Barbara Sinatra, Wife of Frank Sinatra, Dies at 90

25 July 2017 12:19 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Barbara Sinatra, the fourth wife of deceased singing legend Frank Sinatra, died Tuesday at her Rancho Mirage, California, home after “months of declining health,” the Desert Sun reports. She was 90. Sinatra married the “Strangers in the Night” singer in 1976 and remained married to him until his death in 1998. The nearly 22-year marriage was the longest of the singer’s four unions. John Thoresen, director of the Barbara Sinatra Children’s Center, told the Desert Sun that Sinatra “died comfortably surrounded by family and friends at her home.” Also Read: Nancy Sinatra Walks All Over Troll Who Says Frank Sinatra Would have. »

Tuesday’s Short + Feature: These Boots and Mystery Train

Music is at the heart of this program, which pairs a zany music video by Finnish master Aki Kaurismäki with a tune-filled career highlight from American independent-film pioneer Jim Jarmusch. In the 1993 These Boots, Kaurismäki’s band of pompadoured “Finnish Elvis” rockers, the Leningrad Cowboys, cover a Nancy Sinatra classic in their signature deadpan style. It’s the perfect prelude to Jarmusch’s 1989 Mystery Train, a homage to the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll and the musical legacy of Memphis, featuring appearances by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins and Joe Strummer. »

19 July 2017 6:18 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

News of Senator John McCain‘s brain cancer diagnosis on Wednesday shocked many who admire his tenacity and strength.

Lawmakers from both sides of the aisle expressed their support for the veteran, who revealed that he had been diagnosed after undergoing surgery to remove a blood clot above his eye.

The 2008 Republican presidential nominee received a message from his former campaign opponent, President Barack Obama, who urged McCain to give his cancer “hell.”

John McCain is an American hero & one of the bravest fighters I've ever known. Cancer doesn't know what it's up against. Give it hell, John.

Nancy Sinatra Walks All Over Troll Who Says Frank Sinatra Would have Voted for Trump

7 July 2017 9:50 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Nancy Sinatra’s boots are made for walking, and that’s just what they did on Friday — all over a Twitter troll who claimed her father, Frank Sinatra, would have voted for Donald Trump. “@NancySinatra you do know your father would have supported Trump don’t you? Check yourself,” @TIculver tweeted. But nothing fires up a nice Italian girl like talking untruths about her Daddy. “Not A Chance. Do your homework before you speak about Frank Sinatra,” she wrote Friday. Also Read: Nancy Sinatra Throws Epic Zinger at Trump Over 'My Way' Inauguration Report Sorry, I don't mean to preach. »

The Girl With A Thorn In Her Side

Lynn Castle Rose Colored Corner Light (Light In The Attic)

Coming across visually as a prototype Nancy Sinatra about to enter The Valley Of The Dolls, Lynn Castle in the 1960s was an entrancing and beguiling entity. Her debut album finally appears a few years shy of her turning eighty, and it is a tremendous affair, an index of splendid and unrealized possibilities, as stark as it is haunting. 

Vocally she sounds like a female Leonard Cohen who's been listening to too much Nina Simone, whose smoke-laced croak she frequently echoes. Her look though uber-girlie doesn't match her sound, and simply serves to enhance the appeal of her beauty and big, big hair. Think Warhol's Candy Darling doing an arch Barbie doll look and you are nearly there. Add Jackie O shades and you have quite simply arrived. Her sole single 'The Lady Barber' is a wonderful piece of »

18 June 2017 9:08 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Frank Sinatra’s eldest daughter Nancy Sinatra posted a heartfelt tribute to the iconic crooner in honor of Father’s Day.

“I wish I could hug my dad for Father’s Day, or even call him on the phone. Sleep warm, Poppa,” she wrote above an image of his grave that she posted on Twitter early Sunday morning.

Frank Sinatra died on May 14, 1998 after a heart attack. He was 82.

The Rat Pack legend cemented his bond with his middle child in 1945 when he recorded “Nancy (with the Laughing Face),” one of his first hit singles.

Wonder Woman Music Video Mashup Celebrates Female Superheroes

25 May 2017 9:39 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the release of Warner Bros.' Wonder Woman just eight days away, Nerdist decided to put together another one of their mashup videos to celebrate the first major female superhero adventure to come from either the Dceu or McU. You may recall that, back in March, before the release of Disney's Beauty and the Beast, the site put together a video called "Belle and Bougee," a parody of the Migos song "Bad and Boujee," along with a Spider-Man: Homecoming parody "That Spidey Life," based on the Bruno Mars song "That's What I Like," which debuted last month. This music video mashup kicks things up a notch, putting a Wonder Woman spin on six iconc songs and music videos that celebrates both Diana of Themyscira and feminism throughout the past few decades.

This Nerdist video stars Nerdist News' Jessica Chobot, Legends of Tomorrow star Ciara Renee and dancer Katrina Rosita as Wonder Woman, »

Lana Del Rey knows Hollywood, dropping references to everyone from Marilyn Monroe to Nancy Sinatra to Lana Turner, from whom she borrowed her name. And the video for her new song with The Weeknd, “Lust for Life,” invites recollections of one of Hollywood’s most storied tragedies. “Lust for Life” features the frequent collaborators playing young lovers, sharing a lovely duet. “Climb up the H of the Hollywood sign,” she sings, and then her character does just that. When she gets to the top, she meets him there. He sings lines that include, “They say only the good die young. »

No, Star Trek Actor George Takei Isn’t Really Running for Congress

31 March 2017 10:34 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Looks like the joke is on us.

Star Trek star George Takei told The Daily Buzz he plans on running for Congress in 2018 and has specifically targeted California’s 22nd District so he can take on Republican Devin Nunes. However, it now turns out that it was all just a joke.

Takei told the site that he wanted to take a bigger stand in politics. “With what is going on now in the country, I couldn’t stand by any longer merely as a citizen,” Takei said. “I knew I had to take a bigger stand. So that’s why I’m running for Congress. »

Better Call Saul Season 3 Review

26 March 2017 9:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Two episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

For the third successive season, the premiere of Better Call Saul begins with a terrific, symbolically-rich cold open set after the events of this show’s parent series Breaking Bad, depicting its titular character working under the assumed name of ‘Gene’ at a Cinnabon as a fugitive from the law. Once again, the sequence is shot in black and white, emphasizing the blandness of his new life; once again it scored by a retro pop hit (this time Nancy Sinatra’s “Sugar Town”); and once again there is a threat of his cover being blown, when two policemen approach him to ask about a shoplifter.

This time, however, he’s unable to maintain his usual caution, as he blurts out almost unwillingly to the shoplifter as he’s escorted away: “Say nothing, you understand? Get a lawyer.” It’s a simple scene, but »

Film Review: ‘Smurfs: The Lost Village’

26 March 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If you go with your family to see “Smurfs: The Lost Village” (and let’s be honest: most of today’s animated features are more than suitable for adults only, but anyone who would go to this movie without children is seriously starved for entertainment), you’ll get to experience the trailer for “The Emoji Movie,” an upcoming feature from the same studio, Sony Pictures Animation. The trailer is hosted by an emoji named Meh, voiced in the morose observational tones of comedian Steven Wright; in just 30 seconds, he makes not being overly enthusiastic about anything seem the apex of hilarity. I won’t prejudge the film, but it’s a stupendous trailer.

Then we get to the Smurfs movie, which has a hundred characters who are Smurfs, and not one of them is as funny, or wry, or distinctive as Meh. You might describe the Smurfs as blueberry Hobbits »

Nancy Sinatra’s boots might be made for walking, but her Twitter account is apparently made for lobbing epic zingers. Sinatra, the daughter of singer Frank Sinatra, landed a perfect jab at president-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday night, following news that Trump would be using the song “My Way” — immortalized by her father — during his inauguration festivities. “You good w/ this guy using the iconic ‘My Way’ for Friday night?’ Sinatra was asked.

Frank Sinatra Would ‘Never’ Have Performed at Trump’s Inauguration, Daughter Says

6 January 2017 7:30 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Nancy Sinatra did not mince words when she was asked if her father, the legendary Frank Sinatra, would have agreed to perform at Donald Trump’s inauguration ceremony. “He would never support a bigot,” Nancy wrote on her official Twitter feed. The comment drew a flurry of reactions, both in support and against her statement. As TheWrap first reported, Trump’s team is struggling to book A-list performers for his inaugural festivities, with two talent bookers saying they were offered ambassadorships if they could deliver marquee names.
