No Show for 'Globes'

By LillyKat / PTR Staff Writer

Roll up that red carpet, folks.

It's a no go for the Globes show.

Due to the ongoing Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike, the 65th Annual Golden Globe Awards telecast has been officially cancelled after a significant show of support by both movie and television talent who vowed not to cross strike picket lines to appear on the show.

In a statement last week, the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) said its members would honor the WGA picket lines, and the WGA had vowed to picket the ceremony if the Hollywood Foregin Press Association (HFPA) chose to go ahead with the show.

Instead, all of this year's winners in all 25 categories will be revealed during an hour-long HFPA press conference at The Beverly Hilton to be covered live by NBC News beginning at 6:00 pm PST on January 13th.
