TUESDAY UPDATE: Give me until Wednesday or Thursday to get rid of this horrible flu, coughing, etc.
Thank you for the kind words during these last days and throughout the strike. I tried to do my best, even though it made me a pain in the butt to both the moguls and the WGA leadership at times. I’ll be emptying my emails and notebooks over the next few days for some final reporting and analysis, so send along any details, photos, YouTube video links and other information you think I should have. But, most of all, I can’t wait to report that everyone is back at work and that Hollywood has returned to what passes for normal. Please keep giving me your trust and your tips.
P.S. Congrats to comedienne Rachel Dratch for doing such a dead-on impression of me coughing and blurting out news that it made everyone at the WGA East awards laugh. But I do hope SNL writer Seth Meyers’ prophesy to Rachel that night doesn’t come to pass: “I don’t know how to tell you this, Nikki, but the reason we brought you up here is that we wanted to let you know that if indeed the strike is over, none of us are ever going to go to your website again.”
