Abstract: Hollywood stars have a long-standing history of being outspoken regarding their choice of political candidates. Their constant availability to share political views with television and print media has provided them with unlimited access in an attempt to influence the general public with information about their political inclinations. While the emphasis in previous years has been on the Hollywood machine’s ability to campaign for a presidential candidate, the election of Barack Obama is the first time a sitting president has actively participated in the process. This paper will look at how President Clinton began the transition into the use of non-traditional media outlets, such as Arsenio Hall and MTV, to disseminate his campaign message and how Barack Obama moved it to yet another level with campaigning using online video games.

It has resulted in questions regarding President Obama’s focus and whether the emphasis has been on the good of the country or if he is more concerned with being a “Hollywood President”. Furthermore this research will strive to determine if the perception is real or if it is a fabrication by the media elite. Lastly, it will also examine the impact of President Obama’s media attention during the 2008 campaign as well as his unconventional media appearances since being elected. President Obama’s appearance on The Tonight Show changed the idea of the United State’s Presidency.

Abstract: Citing the globalization of entertainment, the major Hollywood studios have recently been increasing their involvement with both the production and distribution of locally-produced Asian films. Although globalization has Hollywood studios forming collaborative ties with foreign cultural production entities, crucial questions arise when we analyze the issues of globalization, entertainment, and race. The purpose of this project is to examine the effects emerging Asian media markets have on cultural identity, race, and masculinity from a global cultural standpoint. With this perspective in mind, this paper will then review the issue of “cultural homogenization” by Hollywood and how the emergence of global Asian media markets problematizes the notion of globalization as a one-way flow of cultural influence and a threat to the cultural sovereignty of other nations. Moreover, this paper will analyze how the current Asian media market trends affect the stakes for Asian males with regard to representation and masculinity.

Abstract: Studies have consistently found that social structure influences who transacts with whom, and that actors appear to benefit when exchange occurs embedded within these relations. Explanations for these results frequently point to relations' effectiveness in solving problems inherent in the trade of certain products and services, focusing on the ability of these social networks to provide access to private information regarding the quality of the goods or to allow participants to enforce the terms of the exchange agreement. In investigating these dynamics in the interaction between movie producers and distributors, this paper, however, suggests that a type of self-confirming prophecy can also produce such effects: One party frequently offers better terms of trade in transactions embedded within existing social relations, thereby contributing to the apparent benefits of such exchange patterns. In the motion picture industry, not only do distributors show a preference for carrying films involving key personnel with whom they have prior relations, but also they tend to favor these films when making decisions regarding their release – in determining opening dates and the amount of resources devoted to marketing. Empirical estimates of the performance of movies in the U.S. box office reveal that – when models fail to account for these key decisions – distributors appear to benefit from carrying movies affiliated with known parties, suggesting that they have private information regarding the quality of the talent involved. After controlling for marketing effort and seasonality, however, these effects disappear, indicating that, rather than arbitraging price-quality inconsistencies, distributors produce these effects through their own efforts.

"Doing Deviance, Teaching Conformity: How Transgender Characters in Hollywood Films Promote Normative Gender Roles" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, Hilton San Francisco & Renaissance Parc 55 Hotel, San Francisco, CA,, Aug 14, 2004 <Not Available>. 2019-09-15 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p110789_index.html>

Abstract: This paper examines portrayals of transgender characters in Hollywood films in order to explore what messages about gender and sexuality depictions of gender deviant characters elicit. It concludes that these films use gender deviant characters to teach gender conformity. The films do not promote this conformity by physically punishing the transgressors, as has been done in films made before 1990, but instead promote gender conformity by depicting transgender characters as tragically loveless matchmakers for straight characters as well as using transwomen as examples of ideal women who teach non-transwomen how to better conform to gender norms. Over all, these films both promote heteronormativity and gender conformity while saying that homophobia and transphobia are wrong.
