Actors union SAG-AFTRA has accused the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences of using “extraordinary and unwarranted pressure” to keep actors booked for the Oscars from appearing on other awards shows. In a statement Monday, the union said it had “received multiple reports” of the Academy pressuring talent to refrain from appearing at other awards presentations. “Awards season is a very special time when actors and actresses are being appropriately celebrated and recognized for the outstanding quality of their work,” said SAG-AFTRA. “This self-serving intimidation of SAG-AFTRA members is meant to limit their opportunities…. The apparent attempt by the Academy to keep our members from presenting on their own awards show is utterly outrageous and unacceptable.” The SAG awards show takes place January 27.
