Golden Globes Canceled (Update)

January 7, 2008 by  

UPDATE: The Golden Globes have been canceled so here’s the award-related activity on Sunday night.

  • At 7pm NBC will air Dateline with clips and interviews with nominees.
  • At 8pm, NBC is in talks with Dick Clark Enterprises for a one-hour retrospective/clip show.
  • At 9pm there will be a press conference covered by NBC News announcing the Golden Globe winners. (9pm-10pm)
  • At 10pm NBC will broadcast an “Access Hollywood” style, Golden Globes party show… visiting the various parties in Hollywood.

Deadline Hollywood Daily is reporting that her sources are saying that the Golden Globes have indeed been canceled.

SOURCES: NBC And Hollywood Foreign Press Association Cancel Televised Golden Globes; Entire Event Will Be Scrapped

The Hollywood writers strike can now claim its first awards show casualty. The latest I’m hearing from my sources as of a few minutes ago is that NBC will not be televising the Golden Globes as planned on January 13th. Insiders tell me also that the entire event, even if it were held untelevised, will be cancelled. And the Hollywood Foreign Press Association instead will merely make an announcement of the winners. I’ve not yet received any official confirmation of any of this. But insiders tell me that NBC Universal topper Jeff Zucker and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association which bestows the Golden Globes made the decision together.

I’m such a selfish girl, but I was looking forward to joining the picket lines at the Globes in support of the WGA. Looks like there will be no picket lines at all.

    I’m not surprised. Once SAG announced they’d made an agreement with the WGA, I figured the show wouldn’t go forward. The network seems to be dealing with it fine, though.
