Isn't that inneresting.

Today, key witness CBS Chairman Les Moonves testified in the ongoing trial between Dick Clark Productions and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, claiming that his network was more than ready to pay big $$$ to get the Golden Globes on their network.

In his written deposition submitted to the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, Moonves revealed that his team was ready to pay between $25 and $30 million for the broadcast, a significant higher rate that the $21 million NBC pays annually. When asked again about the price point, Moonves said:

“…as I said, it was an opening offer. And anyone who does these negotiations knows there’s more room than that when you put it out."

You mean you would've been willing to give MORE? You know this is the Golden Globes, right? Not the Oscars?

We kid, we kid. They are equally prestigious. But what a move on Moonves part. Wonder what kind of ramifications this kind of information will have on the trial.
