Might this billboard pop up in Hollywood around Oscar time? It's a freshened up version of a billboard spotted during the 2002 Oscar season. The protest group Guerrilla Girls showed it at this year's Venice Biennale. The group's partner, Movies by Women, is soliciting donations via email to pay for the "startling statistics" campaign: "The billboard will appear in the heart of Hollywood on Sunset Blvd. at the height of Oscar season. It will be seen by the entire entertainment industry on their way to the Academy Awards©. Time is of essence. This is the last crucial 30 days for us to raise the money. By getting the billboard up, we create a media buzz, that buzz gets the conversation going, those conversations spark change."
Also in Hollywood: Monday's Boss Talk in the Wall Street Journal chats with Robert Iger of Disney about the iPod deal for "Lost" and "Desperate Housewives," reducing the number of movies the studio backs and other stuff.
