The Writers Guild of America (WGA) and SAG (Screen Actors Guild) continue their strike after failing to come to terms with media moguls over issues of pay, and job assurances. WAG was the first union to go out on strike last month, with SAG joining them a week or so afterwards. Actors even walked out of the Oppenheimer premier as the SAG strike was announced in the middle of it.

Several high profile actors such as Jeremy Allen White, Jane Fonda and Bob Odenkirk have joined the picket lines, while the likes of Meryl Streep and Leonardo DiCaprio donated millions of dollars to support the strike.
