Voight Not Invited To Sag Awards

SCREEN ACTORS GUILD (SAG) award-nominee JOHN VOIGHT will have to watch the ceremony from home next month (FEB05) - because he's been banned from attending.

Voight was given the nod in the Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries category for his role in TV show THE FIVE PEOPLE YOU MEET IN HEAVEN - but has also been informed he won't be getting an invite to the 5 February (05) ceremony in Los Angeles because he had previously resigned from the guild and is currently classified as a fee-paying non-member.

SAG president MELISSA GILBERT has briefed the guild's national board about the situation, reports trade publication VARIETY.

Resigning from the union is often referred to as seeking "financial core" status, which gives members of the union an opportunity to resign from full membership but continue to pay the portion of dues which go to contract-related jobs.

When members take such steps, they're no longer eligible to participate in a number of guild activities - including attending awards shows.

Voight, who has yet to comment on the situation, was picketed two years ago by SAG when he shot non-union film A DEADLY COURSE.
