Union members poke fun at AMPTP’s “best and final offer” line – Deadline


The ongoing negotiations between the WGA and AMPTP remained promising throughout the weekend, but the writers couldn’t help but enjoy the studio’s claim that they had made their “best and final offer.”

After the statement was made late Saturday night before talks continued today, union members took to the X to have a little fun with AMPTP’s choice of words.

This inspired Mike Flanagan and a few others to come up with potential film titles, should Hollywood ever decide to pursue this hot mess of negotiations. “Best final offer. 2nd best final. Best Final Resolution: 3D. Off4: Best and Last. BFO 5: The very last offer,” he wrote.

Warren Leight took offense to the phrase by comparing it to David Brooks’s now infamous post about the $78 he spent on food in a New Jersey terminal. “AMPTP’s last, best and final $78 meal at Newark Airport,” Leight wrote next to a photo of Brooks’ allegedly expensive burger and fries.

“I told my wife, ‘Okay, I’ll wash the dishes tonight but you have to dry them,'” said SAG-AFTRA member Mike Pueteri. it is dead Last, BestAnd final offer, Then I dried the utensils.”

Humorist Mark Edge shared that “I’ve given my Best And final offer to the doctor Last Heart matched for my transplant. If he doesn’t take it I’ll leave.”

Dan Signer posted an ad from Smart & Final, which offered bananas at 49 cents per pound, among other things. His response: “Guys, I just got this (smart and) final proposal. I think I’d better buy bananas. If I don’t do this, I’ll never be able to get bananas again!”

Glenn Mazzara said, “When this strike is over, I will present my new show, Best and Final. #callingdibs, Sarah Watson posted, “If you’re in line to make the “best and last” joke, stay in line.”

Speaking about the fake Lombardini, actor Paul McKinney wrote, “AMPTP created him”.last best And final offer“But then forgot to put in the language demanding identification, so they’re meeting on Sunday.”

Some WGA members were not so happy with this phrase, even though many took time to point out that the words were straight-up legal. “A “Last, BestAnd final offer“Negotiations are reserved for the party that has all the power,” East wrote. of gray Body structure Showrunner Krista Vernoff. “It took 140 days for the CEO to come to the negotiating table. This is beyond irresponsible. It is the opposite of powerful.”

David Slack added, “When you’ve already made your “last, best and final” proposal three times and then are forced to make a better proposal because you can’t make your only product without us – then maybe Stop calling them “the last, the best and the last”?

Added Scott Collett, “Should AMPTP Last, Best, final offer is not appropriate, then I think the WGA can make the case that a federal arbitrator is needed. It would be nice to hear the CEOs defend their pay and the historic losses suffered by FMCS, and open the studio’s books to the government to try to make their case.
