roma won oscars. wait until netflix has scorsese and de niro

The champagne bottles at Netflix’s afterparty were still corked Feb. 24 when the streaming company offered Oscar viewers the first peek at next year’s awards season. A teaser for Martin Scorsese’s upcoming gangster drama The Irishman aired midway through the Academy Awards telecast, with a simple phrase appended: “In Theaters Next Fall.” That’s a slight tweak from the language Netflix used in its teaser for Roma, “In Select Theaters,” and the word choice indicates how the company that once eschewed theatrical windows plans to evolve for its biggest film yet. Scorsese wants a wide theatrical release for his more than $125 million gangster movie, and two industry sources with knowledge of talks between Netflix and theater owners tell THR that the streaming company is working to get him one. To do…

green book deserves spike lee’s righteous anger

Guest Column Why is Spike Lee so angry? It took me a long time to come to terms with the answer to this anger. It wasn’t until Green Book won the best picture Oscar on Feb. 24 that I fully understood, because I felt it too. I was angry.

Even as I became further acquainted with his filmography, I was puzzled by how dissatisfied the filmmaker so often seemed in photos and interviews. Lee always struck me…

writers go nuclear in war on agents: will all of hollywood get blown to pieces?

It’s been decades since the talent agencies were exclusively “tenpercenteries,” making their living by charging clients a set commission. Now, particularly in television, key agencies rely heavily on packaging fees paid not by clients but by the studios that employ their clients. That’s been the practice for about 60 years. And more recently, the three biggest agencies — CAA, WME and UTA — have sprouted affiliated production companies that compete directly with the studios. The Writers Guild wants to undo all that in a move that would dramatically reshape the industry — not just for agencies but also for studios and pretty much everyone else — by rewriting the agreement that governs the agencies. As an April 6 contract expiration approaches, the battle has gone scorched earth, with the two sides…
