Inside Move: Daniels won’t let awards sag

Strong sense of family to be stressed in remarks

Don’t look for Screen Actors Guild prexy William Daniels to go against the upbeat tone during Sunday’s seventh annual SAG Awards by mentioning the guild’s upcoming contract talks or the possibility of a strike.

Daniels is scheduled to give a short talk during the two-hour ceremony, to be telecast on TNT, but plans to stress the strong sense of family within the acting community. “This is not the occasion to discuss our negotiations, although I remain conciliatory and hopeful,” he said.

Daniels also plans to thank several unions, including the Directors Guild of America and the Writers Guild of America, for their past support of SAG. During the WGA Awards on Sunday, WGA West prexy John Wells gave a 15-minute speech about his guild’s suspended contract talks.
