The Vine: 'Grey's' players in bonus round

2 June 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

After a red-hot second season, the Grey's Anatomy cast is getting a little extra green from studio Touchstone Television. Sources said that the studio, which produces the hit ABC drama, recently handed out $200,000 bonuses to each of the show's principal cast members, including Ellen Pompeo, Patrick Dempsey, James Pickens Jr., T.R. Knight, Sandra Oh, Katherine Heigl, Chandra Wilson, Isaiah Washington, Justin Chambers and Kate Walsh. But sources close to key cast members say the bonus is not likely to head off pressure from the actors for the studio to renegotiate their original series deals at a higher pay rate in light of the show's meteoric ratings spike this past season. Indeed, ABC has high hopes for the medical drama to reinvigorate the network's fortunes on Thursday with its bold move of the show to the 9 p.m. slot on that night in the fall. Touchstone TV, which declined comment on the Grey's bonuses, has a history of giving cash bonuses to the ensemble casts of its hit series. In early 2005, the studio rewarded the principal cast members of its dramedy Desperate Housewives with bonuses said to be about $250,000 each four months into the run of the show. The Desperate Housewives actors also received salary bumps. Meanwhile, in January, the Lost gang received salary increases, with Matthew Fox also getting a bonus. »

4 Globes for 'Brokeback'; 3 to Cash biopic

17 January 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The thwarted romance of Brokeback Mountain seduced the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn., which awarded the movie four trophies Monday night at the 63rd annual Golden Globe Awards, including best motion picture drama. But while Focus Features' Brokeback was the evening's undisputed leader, corralling four of the seven categories in which it was nominated, it didn't dominate the proceedings. On the musical side of the ledger, 20th Century Fox's Johnny Cash saga Walk the Line was nearly as buoyant, picking up three awards, including best motion picture -- musical or comedy. As for the television contests, ABC and Touchstone TV cleaned up with drama and comedy series wins for Lost and Desperate Housewives, respectively, in addition to acting nods for Commander in Chief star Geena Davis and Grey's Anatomy's Sandra Oh. HBO's Empire Falls prevailed in the movie/miniseries competition. »

Faith, redemption themes in TV wins

17 January 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Desperate Housewives had the last laugh Monday as the ABC dramedy took home its second consecutive Golden Globe trophy for best comedy series. ABC also scored the best drama series win for Lost, which bagged the Emmy prize in the same category in September, plus acting wins for Commander in Chief star Geena Davis and Grey's Anatomy trouper Sandra Oh. "Surreal," said Lost co-creator/executive producer Damon Lindelof as he and the show's sizable ensemble cast trooped onstage at the Beverly Hilton. Lindelof was one of several TV winners to give heartfelt thanks to ABC Entertainment president Stephen McPherson and Touchstone TV president Mark Pedowitz. Lindelof hailed the execs "for supporting us from Day 1" on the desert-island thriller that defies most primetime conventions. "This show is an exercise in faith," Lindelof said. "Most of all, I'd like to thank you (the audience) for having faith in us, for inviting us into your homes, watching the show, supporting the show, believing in the show." »
