No one is allowed to officially comment on negotiations between big name studios and the writers, but there are rumors on the internets that the strike could end as early as this Friday. Any deals made still have to be approved and ratified, but the source thinks a finalized agreement can be complete by this coming Friday. I’m a little skeptical because based on reporting from the LA times and writerswrite.com it seems like they haven’t yet resolved the major issues of payment for online videos. We’ll see. If a deal IS brokered by this Friday, though, things will be looking good for the Oscars! Not to mention, I might get saved from this strike induced reality tv shit storm.
