SAG Nominees; Golden Globes Scorched Earth; Scientology Responds

In today's Movie News Rundown: SAG Nominees; Golden Globes host Jerrod Carmichael wasn't trying to get invited back; Scientology isn't pleased; MediaU wants to change film school; Sundance jurors announced; Ben Affleck dunks.

But First: Producer and executive Adam Leipzig has worked on films from Dead Poets Society to March of the Penguins, and is sharing his industry knowledge with MediaU, a new alternative — or complement — to film school. Starting today, you can watch some of their videos on our YouTube channel for free, or get $100 off a class called The Marketing and Distribution Roadmap for Independent Filmmakers using discount code Moviemaker011123.

SAG Nominees: The Screen Actors Guild Awards nominees have just been announced, and the nominations for the main award, Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, include Babylon, The Banshees of Inisherin, Everything Everywhere All at Once, The Fabelmans, and Women Talking. More nominees are here.  

Golden Globes: Here are all the winners. Last night’s show was pretty outstanding once you realized that host Jerrod Carmichael genuinely didn’t care about ever coming back again and was going to go scorched earth on lots of A-listers. After starting the show by saying he got the job because the HFPA needed a Black host to improve its image, he went all in on Will Smith, Tom Cruise, and even the venue, calling the Beverly Hilton “the hotel that killed Whitney Houston.” Many objected. I thought his joke about Cruise/Scientology was the most brutal, for reasons that are a little complicated to explain in a pithy newsletter format. So I wrote about the whole thing here.

P.S. Today we woke up to find this rather intense video in MovieMaker‘s Twitter replies to the Carmichael-Cruise story.
