Hollywood Movie Awards Announces this year’s nominees
Actor James Woods has been quite vocal with his criticism of President Barack Obama in the wake of the government slimdown, and the Too Big to Fail star said, as a result, he now expects to struggle to find work in Hollywood. Woods has been busy tweeting about the slimdown and the President, focusing in particular on the fact that veterans have been unable to visit war memorials in Washington D.C. This President is a true abomination. To have barricaded the WW2 vets, but allow illegal aliens privilege… Woods tweeted on Oct. 8. But Woods, 66, was just warming up. The actor also called Obama just vile. A small, small man. That prompted one of his followers to ask if the actor was concerned his political views would affect his ability to find gainful employment in Hollywood. Dude, aren’t u worried about…u know..ever working again?? the Twitter user asked him. Woods replied: I dont expect to work again. I think Barack Obama is a threat to the integrity and future of the Republic.
(Damian Dovarganes / Associated Press /July 13, 2011) By Bob Pool October 9, 2013, 2:57 p.m. An influx of tourists clogging narrow, curving hillside streets for the perfect view of the Hollywood sign is irritating local residents who say the traffic is creating safety issues. The once-sleepy Hollywood tour bus business has become increasingly competitive . Just a few years ago there were only a few operators offering Hollywood sign viewing tours. Now, there are more than 40 tour companies running buses and vans in and out of the canyon. In response, fliers and signs have started to crop up in the neighborhoods most affected by the traffic. One sign states: “Warning Tourist-Free Zone All Tourists Leave the Area.” TIME-LAPSE VIDEO: Painting the Hollywood sign Los Angeles City Councilman Tom LaBonge , who represents the area, believes the problems would be lessened if the tour companies would park at the Griffith Observatory to view the sign. “I absolutely do support people visiting here from around the world,” LaBonge said. “But the impact on the neighborhood has been great.” Beachwood Canyon and Hollywoodland residents have been at odds in the past over how best to deal with the increased traffic. They clashed two years ago when Hollywoodland installed signs directing visitors away from one neighborhood and into the other.But they are now working together, their leaders say. Residents say they are bothered by the traffic but are most concerned about safety issues because the curving hillside roads were not designed for so many cars and pedestrians. “We live in the middle of an area that is very attractive to people all over the globe,” said Fran Reichenbach, president of the Beachwood Canyon Neighborhood Assn. “We knew that when we moved here, but in the last few years it’s really gotten out of hand.” ALSO:
