by Santa, Lostpedia staff
June 23, 2008 - Lost musical composer Michael Giacchino has been invited to join The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the organization that gives out the Academy Awards, more commonly known as the "Oscars". In addition to Lost, Giacchino is known for his work in feature films such as Mission: Impossible III and Ratatouille, the latter for which he received an Academy Award nomination. Giacchino is among 105 other entertainment industry workers who have been invited this year, including Judd Apatow, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Marion Cotillard. Those who accept the invitation to become members will be inducted at a ceremony in Beverly Hills in September. Comment...

OGR at Comic Con Confirmation
by Nickb123, Lostpedia staff
June 19, 2008 - Octagon Global Recruiting has sent out emails to all who signed up on their website. If you're out the loop, an advert for OGR played during the final ad break when the Season 4 finale aired in the US. The company is apparently connected to the DHARMA Initiative, and describes recruiting a number of people for unpaid work helping in their research projects. The mentioned dates of July 24-27th for recruiting in San Diego led to many of us rightly guessing that this would be happening at Comic Con. Today's email confirms this, and adds other interesting content. Read on for some analysis Lostpedians have come up with! Read more...


Actors may still strike
by Santa, Lostpedia staff
June 20, 2008: The prospects have become increasingly poor for an easy resolution of the contract negotiations between the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and the producers group (AMPTP), which have reached their 35th day, and with current developments now look to last until at least mid-July. If the dispute is not resolved by late summer, the timely resumption of filming for Lost's Season 5 will be jeopardized. Read more...

Taking the Lostbook just that little bit more literally
by Nickb123, Lostpedia staff
I recently visited, and checked out their new flash feature entitled "Lost Book Club". Its quite a nifty little application, listing 40 books that writers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have nominated due to them being influences and featured literary works on Lost. The writers have also issued a letter with the feature, encouraging fans to read the books and take some enjoyment out of their interesting narratives. With some of the finest literature around, its a great list. This was what got me thinking. Read More...

by Nickb123, Lostpedia staff
Thank you to everyone for all the messages of support for the Lostpedia Book Club which, by popular demand, will now also be known as the Lostpedia Literary League (or L³ for the "hip" among you, using the term loosely lol...) Whatever you wanna call it though, its definitely going ahead, which is absolutely awesome. Read More...

Actors strikewatch update
by Santa, Lostpedia staff
The possibility of a strike remains in Hollywood, as the Screen Actors Guild yesterday rejected the "final offer" from the producers' group AMPTP. The current contract expired at the end of June 30, although SAG did not strike and the producers did not lock out the actors. The producers had given their ultimatum, a "final offer" just before the contract lapsed. As expected, the proposal made no movement on the actors' key demands on DVD payments and new media.

Dharma, finally, wants us
by Nickb123, Lostpedia staff
Well it was a day late for most time zones, but the site finally launched for all us fans to take their test. There has been an immense about of clues and new information (as is typical with a big ARG advancement), so I'll try and summarize everything in a concise way. I think its prudent first off to take out the pre-launch email which anyone who signed up to the Octagon Global Recruiting newsletters should have by now. Read More...

by Nickb123, Lostpedia staff
Details are beginning to trickle through about what's going down at Comic Con with Octagon Global Recruiting.

However, a special thanks to Lostpedia member Burncycle16, who has sent us a report of what happened. I summarize his story. Read More... / Check for continuous updates!

by Nickb123, Lostpedia staff
After a long lead-up, finally we're at the start date. From now until August 23rd is the official read-time as part of the Lostpedia Book Club for "Carrie" by Stephen King.

The Shape of Things to Do
by Danhm, Lostpedia IRC staff
Lost Season 4 has been complete for quite awhile. What is a Lostpedian to do in these troubled, Lost-less, times? Worry not! A few dedicated fans have decided to ease our suffering, with the creation of humorous websites to keep us busy until Lost's magnificent return to the air in 188 days. Lost ROFL is the "icanhascheezburger" of the Lost fansite universe... and AfterLOST is a fantastically drawn webcomic about alternative endings to episodes of Lost, perhaps if it was written by surreal comedians with a taste for the abstract.

What do Lost fans actually want in an ARG?
by Nickb123, Lostpedia staff
This is something I've been considering this week, after following the clues and checking out all the comments that people have come up with on a range of fansites about this new ARG. I'm going to discuss these in headings which are by no means exhaustive, and I hope other fans will add to the list on what they want in a Lost ARG. Read more...

Fox Brokers Lucrative New 'Lost' Deal
by Josh Grossberg, E! Online
Matthew Fox is standing atop an island of cash.

The Lost star has inked a new deal that gives him a 50 percent raise, bringing his salary to an estimated $225,000 per episode, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The 42-year-old Fox, who plays the hit ABC drama's reluctant hero, Dr. Jack Shephard, previously earned about $150,000 for each Lost segment aired. But his reps had quietly been negotiating a sizeable bump with producers that paid off in this week's pact. Read More...

Emmy episode entries: Comedy and drama series races
by Tom O'Neil, LA Times
In the Emmy contests for comedy and drama series, nominees submit six sample episodes to be judged. The half dozen episodes are divided into three pairs, which are distributed randomly to voters who view two from each contender.

In other words, because there are five nominees for outstanding comedy series, voters view 10 episodes on DVDs at home before they ink their ballots and sign an affidavit attesting that they viewed everything required. Ballots and paperwork must be returned by Friday. Winners will be announced on the ABC Emmycast on Sept. 21. Below are the titles of the episodes entered in those categories.

Lost, being one of the nominees has entered "The Beginning of the End", "The Constant", "Ji Yeon" , "There's No Place Like Home, Part 1" and "There's No Place Like Home, Part 2" as it's six samples. Lost's Michael Emerson has also been nominated in the supporting actor category for his work in "The Shape of Things to Come." Read More...

"Slaughterhouse Five" read begins
by Nickb123, Lostpedia staff
After wading through "Lord of the Flies" for September's read, Lostpedia's book club moves on to "Slaughterhouse-Five", by Kurt Vonnegut. Not only does the book have big Lost connections about time travel, it also uses these out-there elements as devices to reflect the human condition, thus promising to be an engaging novel for those taking part. With November's book also announced in the post, the LLL project is now really picking up steam in its third month.

2008 Emmys - Why LOST Lost
by Jon Lachonis, UGO
I’ll admit it – being a LOST fan, I was ecstatic to see the show get nominated for Best Drama – but I didn’t expect it to win for one minute. Like most fans, I put up the false front of hopefulness that my coveted little vial of televised heroin would somehow be validated – again – as the ‘best’ there is, but at the end of the day the nod went to Mad Men, and deservedly so – even though Damages would have been even more deservedly so. The fact is, Lost doesn’t have to prove itself anymore. Read more...


Bad Twin competition (closed)
by Nickb123, Lostpedia staff
To celebrate the day that Flight 815 crashed (in an unseemly way), and the day Lostpedia launched, we're offering readers the chance to win a copy of Bad Twin, written by Gary Troup who also perished on this fateful day. To win, listen to the audio file and decipher the message. Code-breaking knowledge is advantageous, but Google/Wikipedia works just as well! The winner revealed...


Six month driving ban for Lost star
by BBC News
Actor Daniel Dae Kim, who plays Jin-Soo Kwon in TV's Lost, has been banned from the roads for six months after being convicted of drunk-driving in the US.

The 40-year-old did not challenge the charges he faced after his arrest in Honolulu, where he was spotted driving erratically last October.

His blood-alcohol content was twice the legal limit for the state of Hawaii. Read More...

Fringe vs. Lost: Part One
by DocArzt, Fringefanatic
October 22, 2008: The Massive Dharma Dynamic Hanso Initiative Foundation? When J.J. Abrams and crew first announced Fringe it was immediately compared to two iconic genre predecessors: X-Files and Lost. Now that we are six episodes into Fringe we have a workable vantage point on the show to say whether or not Fringe is truly derivative of the sensibilities of Lost, or if it is running on its own custom crafted mythos engine...

Alice in Wonderland Read Begins!
by Nickb123, Lostpedia staff
It seems like the wait for this book has been particularly long, what with us now having a full month for reading and discussing each book, and with the all but end of the ARG. However, we're finally here, and so we move away from the wonder of Slaughter-House Five to the lovely escapist fantasy world of Alice in Wonderland. The Lewis Carroll work is a little different to what we're used to, as we've decided to cover both titles, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There." Read on for more information on how to freely access the book online, and what December's book will be! Read more...
