Will The Golden Globes Be Cancelled????


The Golden Globe nominations will be announced tomorrow, but the day may not be merry for the nominees and big studios.

One of the repercussions of the Hollywood writers strike is that the Golden Globes in January may be cancelled, delayed or go ahead without any star support.

This will hurt the big studios’ chances of capitalizing off the Globes noms and wins for box office appeal and to lure Oscar voters.

If the Golden Globes do go on as planned, the Writers Guild of America will likely picket the show.

Screen Actors Guild members will not cross the picket line if they’re nominated. The unions stand in solidarity, and SAG is likely to go on strike for the same reasons (DVD residuals and internet rights) this coming June.

There’s a possibility the WGA will not picket the Globes and grant them a waiver, allowing their writers to work on the show, but that seems unlikely, according to industry insiders.

If the writers want to give a “fuck you” to the big media companies that are being difficult to bargain with – negotiations are at a standstill – then they will boycott the Golden Globes and the Oscars.

Do it!

Fight the power!
