Steve Allen: Still a Winner
Steve Allen, who died a week ago at the age of 78, won one of 32 seats on the Screen Actors Guild board of directors. Voting closed on Wednesday, two days after the popular TV host's fatal heart attack at his son's home. Allen's win is being credited to his vocal pro-SAG stance during the recently settled actors' strike against the advertising industry. The remaining board seats were filled by similarly active strikers, including Valerie Harper (the top vote getter, with 7.099 ballots in her favor, according to the Hollywood Reporter), Tom Bosley, Elliott Gould and Frances Fisher, among others. The SAG board will fill Allen's slot, says SAG president William Daniels.
