Hosted by and

Emma Thompson pulled out of working on a Skydance Animation movie called 'Luck.' Sources say she left because of the company's decision to hire John Lasseter. Last week, Holly Edwards was promoted to president in at attempt to quell concerns raised by female animators, but for some people--including Thompson, that move clearly wasn't enough. Now Lasseter finds himself in a situation similar to Woody Allen--there's a lot of talent who doesn't want to work with or be seen on a red carpet with him.
