SAG earnings dip 5% in ’00

Report to be fodder in upcoming talks with producers

The Screen Actors Guild has announced a 5% decline in reported earnings last year, to $1.59 billion, due to the six-month strike against advertisers.

Commercial earnings fell 15.9% to $529.8 million, while film earnings slipped 1.8% to $417.3 million. TV earnings rose 3.7% to $624.1 million and industrial/interactive earnings were up 15.6% to $14.3 million.

SAG’s total earnings, based on reports to the SAG-Producers Pension & Health Plans, were the lowest since 1996’s $1.53 billion.

The report will be fodder in upcoming negotiations with producers for a new TV-film contract, even though they do not fully reflect money earned by SAG’s best-paid members.

Producer health and pension contributions are capped at $200,000 per project, so only a small portion of an actor’s $20 million payday for a film would be reflected in the union’s figures.
