Sam Rubin: Ellen producers fired after toxic workplace claims

Play
Read more
Some changes are coming to "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" amid allegations it fostered a toxic work environment.
A spokesperson for Warner Bros., said three of the show's top producers, Ed Glavin, Kevin Leman and Jonathan Norman have "parted ways" with "The Ellen DeGeneres Show." The show's distributor, Warner Bros. Television, is owned by CNN's parent company, WarnerMedia.
The shakeup comes after reports by BuzzFeed in which some current and former staff members alleged they faced harassment, intimidation and racism.
DeGeneres held a Zoom meeting on Monday with over 200 employees, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. In this meeting DeGeneres apologized, saying she plans to interact more with her staff going forward and ensure there's a culture where her employees feel "happy and safe."
"Does that mean I'm perfect? No. I'm not. I'm a multi-layered person, and I try to be the best person I can be and I try to learn from my mistakes," DeGeneres said during the meeting, according to the source. "I'm hearing that some people felt that I wasn't kind or too short with them, or too impatient. I apologize to anybody if I've hurt your feelings in any way."
In an email to staffers last month, DeGeneres said an internal investigation had been launched into the allegations.
"We are taking steps, together, to correct the issues," DeGeneres wrote in part. "As we've grown exponentially, I've not been able to stay on top of everything and relied on others to do their jobs as they knew I'd want them done. Clearly some didn't. That will now change and I'm committed to ensuring this does not happen again."
A statement from WarnerMedia released at the time stated, "Warner Bros. and Ellen DeGeneres take the recent allegations around the show's workplace culture very seriously."
They said they were making changes to ensure "a workplace based on respect and inclusion."
CNN has reached out to DeGeneres for further comment.

Sam Rubin: Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres accused of bullying from staff

Trouble is brewing for Ellen DeGeneres.
Warner Media is investigating the US comedian's show, after allegations of a toxic work environment.
KTLA entertainment reporter Sam Rubin told Kate Hawkesby Ellen's producers have leapt to her defence, claiming it's their fault the atmosphere has degraded.
But he says employees say it's her name on the door and her responsibility to fix it.
"She's been conspicuously silent on the matter, and I read that as confirmation that some of these rumours are true."
Rubin says it's very unusual Ellen hasn't made any comment on this so far, but typically in Hollywood - one of her executive producers will take the fall.

Sam Rubin: The Oscars to introduce rule changes due to Covid-19

Play
Read more
The Oscars are making what's described as a one-time-only concession by allowing movies initially made available via streaming or video on demand to compete for best picture in next year's awards.
The decision came from the board for the group that presides over the Academy Awards, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, also made several other changes to the awards process, among them the consolidation of sound editing and sound mixing into one "sound" category.
The Academy cited the forced closure of theatres due to the Covid-19 pandemic, noting that only movies with a "previously planned theatrical release" would be eligible. Previously, films needed to have at least a week-long theatrical run in order to qualify for consideration.
In a statement, Academy president David Rubin and CEO Dawn Hudson stressed that the organization's commitment to the theatrical experience is "unchanged and unwavering." The Academy has faced pressure to relax its rules as Netflix, especially, pushes for inclusion in the awards competition.
Director Steven Spielberg, among other high-profile members, has spoken out about maintaining the distinction between streaming and theatrical releases.
The date for the 93rd annual Academy Awards remains Feb. 28 of next year, although the Academy acknowledged that additional changes might be necessary, "based on national guidelines, state-mandated government orders and Academy-determined best practices."
After low ratings for this year's Oscars, the board approved several additional procedural changes, among them allowing all members to vote in the international feature film category, formerly known as best foreign-language film.
The Academy also announced that the current award season will be the last in which studios are allowed to distribute DVD screeners to voters. Citing environmental concerns, distribution of will shift to digital versions in 2021.

Sam Rubin: What to expect from the 2020 Oscars

Play

The Oscars are here, already.
After the shortest awards season in decades, the 92nd annual Academy Awards will get underway Sunday evening at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. The red carpet is being rolled out two to three weeks earlier than usual in a bid to freshen up a ceremony and potentially boost ratings.
The truncated time table has put the normally bloated Oscars season on a diet (Sunday's show will also, for the second straight year, be hostless) and sent film academy members scrambling to finish their movie-watching — no small task in a year featuring a few three-hour epics like "The Irishman" and "Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood."
Fittingly for a fast race, a movie about a mad dash has risen to the top of the heap. After winning nearly every major precursor award, Sam Mendes' "1917," about a pair of British soldiers sent with an urgent message to deliver through recently-held enemy territory, is the favourite for best picture. Thanks to its technical dazzle, the seemingly one-continuous-shot "1917" is also likely to come away with the most awards Sunday, even without any acting nominations.
Although Joaquin Phoenix, Renée Zellweger, Brad Pitt and Laura Dern all appear to be all-but-certain locks in the acting categories, there's still the potential for a history-making upset. Momentum has swung behind Bong Joon Ho's South Korean thriller "Parasite," and some believe it has a chance to become the first non-English language film to win best picture.
Such a win would be a watershed moment for the Academy Awards, which has long been content to relegate international films to their own category. But in an effort to diversify its largely white and male membership, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences has inducted more overseas members in recent years. And just about no one has a bad word to say about the widely praised class satire "Parasite,"  the Palme d'Or winner at last year's Cannes Film Festival and the first foreign language film to win  top honours from the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
The official pre-show will begin at 6:30 p.m. EST on ABC. Among the presenters the academy will lean on in the absence of a host are Tom Hanks, Maya Rudolph, Spike Lee, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Chris Rock, Timothée Chalamet, Will Ferrell, Diane Keaton and Kelly Marie Tran.
The ceremony will come just days after the death of Kirk Douglas, one of the last surviving stars of Hollywood's golden age. Kobe Bryant, a 2018 Oscar winner for the short "Dear Basketball," is expected to be included in the ceremony's In Memoriam segment.
ABC and the academy will be hoping a widely watched field of nominees — including the $1 billion-grossing "Joker," up for a leading 11 awards — will help viewership. Last year's show garnered 29.6 million viewers, a 12% uptick.
This year's Oscars comes amid a streaming overhaul throughout Hollywood. Hurrying to catch up to Netflix and Amazon, most of the major studios are prepping or have already launched their own streaming services, as have new entrants like Apple. Netflix comes into the Oscars with a leading 24 nominations thanks to "The Irishman," "Marriage Story," "The Two Popes" and the likely best documentary winner, "American Factory."
But despite spending heavily through awards season, Netflix may go home with only a few awards. The streamer is still seeking its first best picture win after Alfonso Cuaron's "Roma" came up just shy last year.
Instead, this year's Oscar favourites are largely movies released widely in theatres. They also predominantly feature male characters and come from male directors.
After a year in which women made significant gains behind the camera, no female directors were nominated for best director. The acting categories are also the least diverse since the fallout of #OscarsSoWhite pushed the academy to remake its membership. Cynthia Erivo ("Harriet") is the only actor of colour nominated. Those results, which have been a topic  in speeches through awards seas...
