SAG Elections Update: About That Earnings Report ...

• SAG's annual earnings report is in. Not that anyone was expecting good news, but that 11.1-percent drop in principal session fees is pretty gnarly. The Hollywood Reporter has the deepest analysis. Deadline has the Sturm und Drang.

• One Strong Union—the pro-merger group that is challenging fellow pro-merger group United Screen Actors Nationwide for control of the New York division—has once again updated its blog, this time with an endoresement from former board member Ralph Byers and open letters from candidates Joe Narciso and Andrew Dolan. OSU has definitely been using the Web and social media more aggressively than any other faction in New York or L.A. USAN's Twitter feed has had one lonely tweet on it since July 26, and neither USAN nor L.A.'s Unite for Strength seems much interested in updating the news feed of its website (except, in UFS's case, to republish the occasional SAG press release or trade article). Meanwhile, OSU appears to be updating its blog almost daily. Whether any of that will make a difference is impossible to tell.

• Finally, if you haven't yet tired of hitting that paywall, here's a Variety piece from a few days ago about how boring the WGA election is.
