Leaving aside the Bagger’s japey suggestions about how to have an Oscar Awards show without writers or talent in the seats, I was taken by the declaration at the start that the Oscars “are TBTF — Too Big Too Fail. Strike-ridden, snakebit, say what you will, but some kind of the show will go on. Too much money and ego are riding on it for a workaround not to emerge.” The fact that the DGA will cut a deal with the AMPTP a lot sooner than later (i.e., early next month?) will probably affect the WGA talks. Unlike the WGA and SAG, a healthy portion of the DGA members work on a regular basis. But if the strike continues and messes with the Globes and the Oscars, it’s going to be strange in a lot of ways.
