No Golden Globes For Us! Thanks Writers!

This writers strike thing is about as retarded as Ice Cube playing BA Barracus. Oh wait.

Anyways, Nikki Finke from Deadline Hollywood says, “The Hollywood writers strike can now claim its first awards show casualty. I'm hearing from my sources that NBC will not be broadcasting the big Golden Globes show as planned for January 13th….Instead, a stripped down news telecast will be aired exclusively by NBC News from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, site of what was supposed to be the big show, where the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will announce the Golden Globe winners who won't be present in the room.”

Thanks writers, the only decent awards show is not gonna go down. Just some winners announced on the news and that be that.

My thoughts over the whole, writer thing. I understand they're pissed that producers make all the money while the writers, the REAL creators behind movies, don't make as much. Well guess what, for every cry baby writer on strike, there are 100 writers struggling to get their work noticed in the world and would GLADLY take their spot and make the kinda money writers are already making in the first place. Nikki goes on with....

"There will be a press conference this afternoon announcing that the Globes Awards ceremony will not go on. Here is the plan:

At 9 PM there will be a press conference covered by NBC News announcing the Golden Globe winners. (9pm-10pm)

At 8 PM, we are negotiating with Dick Clark Enterprises for a one-hour retrospective/clip show.

At 7 PM, we will air a Dateline with clips and interviews with nominees. (Currently scheduled to air for two hours on Saturday night.)

At 10 PM, we will broadcast an "Access Hollywood" style, Golden Globes party show...visiting the various parties in Hollywood.”
