Actors aren't allowed to promote their films during the strike?

Does that mean the fall film festivals had no actors there at screenings?

Bradley Cooper must be happy about the strike. He didn't have to explain his attraction to telling a bisexual story.

SAG-AFTRA actors can't, but films produced outside of the US or Canada – with no WGA or SAG ties – can be promoted by their stars. (OTOH I'm already hearing talk that Sundance will likely be scrapped if the strike isn't resolved by then – and we're six months into the WGA one, with Sundance only four months away, so this is a definite possibility.)

What about award shows? Will they be scrapped too?

R4, didn’t the guilds allow members to attend the Tony’s? It almost seems like it’s in their best interest to attend award shows because they aren’t being paid but it gives them a platform to rail against the studios. But if the award shows have writers, then I guess they technically could be crossing crossing a picket line.

I don’t know and I’m completely unqualified to answer any questions on the topic. Ask me things about Cher or immunology. I know lots about those things.

How long are they going to strike? Something has to break at some point.

R6 I have a friend at Universal, another at Paramount, and a former colleague now at Fox Entertainment and they have all been telling me “December” since the SAG-AFTRA strike began.

No award shows? Where will I be seen then?
