Hollywood: Strike Kneeling Emmy Awards; founding member of The Eagles dies


RNews offers you a summary of the week’s latest international entertainment news.

Emmy Awards Postponed

The 75th Emmy Awards event, which was scheduled to take place on September 18 this year, has been postponed due to the ongoing Hollywood actors and writers strike.

This year’s Emmy Awards, which are known as television’s version of the Oscars, are not expected to take place until later this year, or even early next year. This delay has not yet been officially announced, but producers and suppliers of the event have told the Los Angeles Times confirm that they have already been informed that the function will not go ahead as initially planned.

This delay comes after the Screen Actors Guild (SAG-AFTRA), which represents around 160,000 Hollywood actors, announced an actors’ strike earlier this month. Hollywood writers had already been on strike for 11 weeks at the time. This is the first time in 63 years that Hollywood has been crippled in this way.

The strike means long waiting periods for new series and films, a delay in premiere dates and abandoned Hollywood film sets. This follows negotiations with production houses over artificial intelligence (AI) policies and dwindling compensation that ended in a stalemate.

A new date for the Emmy Awards has not yet been announced.

The Eagles founding member dies

Randy Meisner, one of the founding members of The Eagles, died on Wednesday July 26 at the age of 77 due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in Los Angeles.
