    Default Well, there's no reason to watch the Golden Globes....

    none of the actors are going to show up to get their awards.

    http://www.variety.com/VR1117978475.html

    Therefore, no style critiquing for moi.

    That's what I enjoy about the awards season.

    Awww shit. I knew there were talks about it, and there was even talk about the award show not even being aired, or just making the winning announcements and handing out none of the awards. I haven't read the article yet that you linked, but I am not surprised. Now we just have to wonder about the Oscars.

    The actors are afraid to do it because they don't wanna do anything to get them labeled as unsupportive of the writers. It's only a matter of time before the actors strike to hurry this process along. It should be the same way as if it were DVD sales. An online sale should be viewed the same way that dvd and other sales are viewed and the pay off should apply to the same people.

    Apparently, NBC is still airing it.

    But who's going to write the skits, monologues, whatever?

    And only if it were that easy there Raven, no strike would occur. But negotiations are not going as planned.

    I do. To see who gets caught in the bathroom while being announced as a winner and to see the styles.

    More to see the good lookin' actors though.

    Yup. Wonder if that's a breach of contract between the production company and NBC.

    We shall soon see how this plays out.

    Update:

    http://www.deadlinehollywooddaily.co...bes-cancelled/

    Apparently, the entire ceremony's been cancelled.

    I mean, I can understand why, just as I can understand why the writers are striking....but...

    *cries*

    Movies....stars....gone gone GONE!!!

    That's sad news, was looking forward to it. On the other hand the writers (and in this case the actors at the golden globe ceremony) do have a good point to strike.

    I hope....I hope I hope I hope something is worked out soon and everyone can get back to work and we can try to speculate on what's coming out, especially about TF2.

    Boy that was a long sentence!

    Yes I hope so to, let's get TF2 started

    It would be a disaster if the oscar ceremony doesn't take place. Afcourse the movies/directors/actors get there prices, but not the traditional way it should be. I did read an article that Tom Cruise's his filmcooperation did had an agreement with the writers?

    That's what Beej told me, but I haven't seen anything on it.

    Maybe I'm just not looking in the right places....LOL

    On for the time being, buuuut most of these actors are member's of multiple guilds, they are married to other guild members, or something along those lines. So I wouldn't count on Oscar being aired, and if it is they'll make it just an awards announcement and not a grad ceremony. (think the old days with Newhart)

    Maybe....just maaayyyybeee...there will be a resolution in the writer's strike.

    But I'm not holding my breath. If I did, I'd be dead.
