Today in entertainment, the writer's strike is OFFICIALLY OVER! plus controversory over the 2008 olympics and star wars returns to the big screen!
Hi everyone! i'm Andrea rene for get the daily.com and you're watchign the entertainment update.
Its over! Its really over! After 100 days of talk show reruns, missing episodes of favorite sitcoms, and SNL free Saturdays, the Writer's guild of America voted yesterday to lift their strike on Hollywood. It was the worst labor dispute in Tinsel Town in over 2 decades, and it isn't completely finished yet. THe members of the WGA still need to vote on the tentative contract that would give writers payments for their work streamed online plus they'll get double rates for film and tv work sold as internet downloads. And it will also extend the contract for content made specifically for the web. Many writers will be returning to work today, expect to see familiar spots on late night talk shows and daytime ones as well, but as previously reported, your favorite dramas and sitcoms won't be back until April.
Academy award winning director Steven Spielberg has stepped down from his artistic advisor position for the 2008 Summer Olympics in Bejing. The legendary director of "Schindler's List" said the reason for his withdrawal is because he does not support China's policy on Darfur, a region of Sudan. China has long been accused of aiding rebels efforts to keep peacekeepers out of the war ravaged region, where thousands of civilians are being murdered or driven from their homes. Many activists are calling for China to step up to the plate and make some changes in their Sudan policies before they try to play host for the Olympics, one of the world's greatest venues for peace. So far China has given no intentions of changing their policy, and have even said they will not submit to foreign pressure.
Star Wars fan listen up! Creator George Lucas has previously said there will be no more stars wars films, but he LIED!

Lucas has announced he will release an animated film called "Star Wars: The Clone Wars," as a precursor the new animated series set to debut this fall. Lucas said he felt like there was a lot of the story left to tell, and he wanted to do that through the art of animation.

We are back with a brand new season of the Clip Show! This week with the writers on strike you get an unplugged, unscripted and very laid back version of the internet’s favorite podcast review show.
In theaters January 12th, 2007
Starring: Hilary Swank, Scott Glenn, Imelda Staunton, Patrick Dempsey, Mario
"Freedom Writers" is inspired by a true story and the diaries of real Long Beach teenagers after the LA riots, during the worst outbreak of interracial gang warfare. Two-time Academy Award® winner Hilary Swank stars as Erin Gruwell, whose passion to become a teacher is soon challenged by a group of Black, Latino, and Asian gangbangers who hate her even more than each other. When Erin begins to listen to them in a way no adult has ever done, she begins to understand that for these kids, getting through the day alive is enough -- they are not delinquents but teenagers fighting "a war of the streets" that began long before they were born. Erin gives them something they never had from a teacher before -- respect. For the first time, these teens experience a hope that maybe, they might show the world that their lives matter and they have something to say.

Writers are the backbone of the entertainment industry. Without writers, there wouldn't be any of the great movies we love to watch. They deserve a share of the profits like the producers in the industry and speak out at this small protest. I have written two screenplays myself and am part of this community of writers.
The is a story version of The Beatles song that I created for a digital video class. If you have seen the original film done for Paperback Writer and Rain, it simply features the band lip synching and pretending to play their unhooked electric guitars--and Ringo without a drum kit. This is done in the narrative style of video making we've become used to since VH1 and MTV.
