Hollywood Reporter Reports on Mouthpieces

The Hollywood Reporter held court, so to speak, with the 100 attorneys it had named for its Power Lawyers issue this morning at the Peninsula Hotel. Organizer and HP managing editor of features Matthew Belloni said the event went off without hitch this morning, though he didn’t bother to tell whether they were eating raw snails (as lawyers are wont to do) or just bagels and coffee.
Belloni did bother to talk about the key award-winner, Disney executive VP of business affairs Bernadine Brandes and why they chose her: “Because she has been behind most of the major movie deals that Disney has had, including Jerry Bruckheimer, Robert Zemeckis and Tim Burton.”
Most of Hollywood’s legal power elite made it out of bed for an 8:30 a.m. start, including Tom Hansen, Linda Lichter, Skip Brittenham, Melanie Cook, Cliff Gilbert-Lurie, Alan Hergott, Harold Brown, Jay Cooper and Patti Felker, among others.
Belloni conceded that one of Hollywood’s most powerful attorneys was a no-show. Jake Bloom had no interest. “He never shows up for things like this and if he does, he doesn’t say anything,” he moaned.
