BOSPOAT - Best On Set Photo Of All Time: As Good As It Gets

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, August 7, 2019

It’s hard to know what was shining brightest on this August 2017 day—the sun following a solar eclipse or these five megastars eagerly viewing and clearly enjoying the moment. When Diane Keaton, Candice Bergen, Jane Fonda and Mary Steenburgen gather in one place for any reason, you know something special is happening. This first day of shooting on Book Club was particularly notable. The ladies were quickly becoming best buddies, when Mother Nature started to put on her show. Eager to experience the phenomenon, the cast quickly donned their special glasses.

Erin Simms, PGA member and producer of the film, had the “bright” idea to grab this awesome picture. She says, “They were actually sold out of eclipse glasses all over the city, but thankfully some crew members had wisely stocked up beforehand, so we were all passing them around and sharing. This photo captured a moment that was completely unplanned, and we suddenly realized that while the eclipse was incredible, witnessing these four legends working together for the first time was truly a total eclipse of the heart.”

Simms’ fellow producer on Book Club was another PGA member, Bill Holderman. The talented duo also co-wrote the movie, and Holderman was the director as well.

On a scientific note—this was dubbed the Great American Eclipse because it was visible within a band that spanned the entire contiguous United States. It had been nearly a century since the last time (1918) that happened. Hollywood and the heavens in perfect sync—it doesn’t get any better than that!


We know what you’re thinking. “Best of all time? No way. I’ve got an on-set photo way better than that.” If that’s the case, we dare you to prove it. Submit it to BOSPOAT@producersguild.org. Before you submit, please review the contest rules at producersguild.org/bospoat. Because no matter how great your photo is, we have no desire to get sued over it.
