    I don’t understand the thread title? Pulling a Spike Lee? What’s that?

    Kathy Bates for Best Supporting Actress (Richard Jewell)

    Just to clean his name.

    Yes, but $2 million (including their agency’s donation) is nothing to scoff at and will do a lot of good.

    Why not just give half the money to Michelle Williams directly and have her decide what she wants to do it? That’s what would really remedy this situation. With this, Williams has no say in where the money is going and still gets nothing.

    It’s beyond stupid Wahlberg was blamed for this. It’s not his fault he was paid more, and there’s no reason he should have been expected to do the reshoots for free, even if Williams did.

    I also completely forgot Wahlberg was in ATMITW until this story happened.

    She does not need the money and did not want it in the first place.

    Donation under Michelle’s name and her sacrificing her holiday and salary for a greater good.

    Sounds like the 2018 recipient for the Jean Hearsholt Honorary Oscar. Come through White Michelle.

    Doesn’t sound like you followed what happened. They WERE all paid for the re-shoots (at the lowest industry rate) as part of their contracts. Wahlberg got greedy, though, and exploited a technicality in his contract to extort the production of $1.5M for two days’ work and kept that secret knowing it was likely they were all getting $80/hour. It’s the height of scummy behavior.

    I don’t get the Spike Lee reference either. You’re not comparing Wahlberg’s donation to Lee donating a thousand turkeys to a church in Chicago, are you?

    In the last year of scandals, why has Mark Wahlberg been the only one smart enough to save face by making a massive donation?
