"Though there's still plenty of time for the WGA and studios to hammer out an
agreement before the entertainment industry has to seriously consider the
strike's potential impact on the Academy Awards, it's not too early to start
fretting about a highly theoretical doomsday scenario in which the whole
ceremony is canceled, a situation that could plunge the entire celebrity-service
industry into ruin. How will the people who make a living catering to those too
busy to attend to their own needs fare in an Oscarless world?"
The business of stars and TV is easy to take lightly. Unless you are one of the thousands who depend on it for your income. When you think about the ripple effect of those people not being able to pass business on to other services that assist them, it gets big fast. This could pull the economy of Southern California into a pit. I have said before, that I believe they are going to lose the strike, what is now becoming clear is that this could be the end of Hollywood the a center of celebrity.
