SAG: Actors likely to snub Golden Globes

Golden Globe-nominated actors are expected to snub the awards in support of striking Hollywood writers, the actors union said Friday, jeopardizing one of the entertainment industry's signature showcases.

NBC, however, said it was sticking by its plans to air the Jan. 13 ceremony, despite the uncertainty about how much — if any — star power the Globes could muster.

"The network plans to move forward with the broadcast at this point," NBC spokeswoman Rebecca Marks said, adding that it has yet to be determined which actors will participate.

Screen Actors Guild President Alan Rosenberg made the announcement after canvassing nominees during the past several weeks.

"There appears to be unanimous agreement that these actors will not cross" the picket lines to present or accept an award, he said in a prepared statement.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which organizes the awards, said it was wrestling with the "unfortunate predicament."

"We are making every effort to work out a solution that will permit the Golden Globes to take place with the creative community present to participate," Jorge Camara, the group's president, said in a statement.

The association hoped to announce a resolution Monday, Camara said.

The writers strike, which began Nov. 5, has broad implications for the way Hollywood does business. Whatever deal is struck by writers on payment for shows offered on the Internet could affect talks with actors and directors, whose contracts expire next June.

The Golden Globes show brings in a reported $5 million for the association and millions more in advertising revenue for NBC.

On Friday, a dozen publicity firms representing what they called a majority of Golden Globe-nominated actors, writers and directors, as well as many stars invited to appear as presenters, released a letter sent to NBC Universal Chief Executive Jeff Zucker.

"After much discussion with our clients, we have concluded the vast majority of the talent we represent are not comfortable crossing a picket line," the letter said.

The stars would appear only if NBC and dick clark productions, which produces the show, reaches an interim agreement with the writers guild, the publicists told Zucker.

The Clark company lashed out at the guild in a statement Friday, citing repeated efforts to reach an interim agreement akin to the union deal with another independent company, Worldwide Pants, which produces David Letterman's show.

"We are disappointed that the WGA has refused to bargain with us in good faith. It is apparent that we are being treated differently from similarly situated production companies," the Clark company said.

An e-mail request for guild comment was not immediately answered.

Meanwhile, writers guild President Patric M. Verrone lauded the move by actors and said the "entire awards show season is being put in jeopardy by the intransigence of a few big media corporations."

In his statement, Verrone urged studios to resume talks that broke off Dec. 7.

The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, which represents the studios in negotiations, did not immediately respond to an e-mail request for comment.

The Writers Guild of America had refused to grant a waiver to allow its members to work on the Globes, the People's Choice Awards and the prestigious Academy Awards.

A total of 72 actors are among this year's Golden Globe nominees. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has repeatedly tried to seek the blessing of the writers guild.

The actors union said previously that the choice to attend was a personal one that its members would make for themselves.

In his statement Friday, Rosenberg also weighed in on the late-night talk shows, which are back on the air. Some are working without writers, while others made deals with the writers guild.

Rosenberg stopped short of pressing actors to skip the picketed shows, like Jay Leno's "Tonight."

"We urge our members to appear on the two programs that have independent agreements with the WGA, 'The Late Show with David Letterman' and `Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,'" he said.

Actors who appear on other shows have to cross picket lines, he said.

That creates "the same situation that has led to the consensus among actors to skip the Golden Globes," Rosenberg said.

Golden Globes axed, replaced by press conference: LA Times

This year's Golden Globes ceremony is to be cancelled after actors vowed to boycott the event in support of striking Hollywood writers, the Los Angeles Times reported on its website on Monday.

The Times, citing an email sent by broadcasters to studios, reported that the traditional televised dinner and prize presentation had been scrapped in favor of a press conference and a scaled-back red carpet event.

The fate of the Golden Globes -- due to be held in Beverly Hills on Sunday -- had been hanging in the balance ever since striking writers vowed to erect picket lines around the awards show last week.

On Friday, the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) announced that its members would not cross picket lines set up by writers, who are locked in a bitter dispute with film and television producers.

The actors union's decision immediately called into question plans for the black-tie dinner and awards presentations which are normally televised live by US broadcaster NBC.

According to the Times report, the Golden Globes' organisers the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) had reached a compromise deal that would allow winners to receive their awards informally on Sunday.

The victors would then be announced in a televised press conference instead of the usual ceremony.

Hollywood screenwriters have been on strike since November 5 after the WGA and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) failed to agree terms for a new contract that expired in October.

Negotiations have foundered over the writers' demands for an increased share of profits from Internet and new media sales.

The two-month strike has forced the suspension of numerous television series as well as the postponement of work on several Hollywood films.

On the other hand, our chance to see PTA giving a speech if he wins something just went down the drain, which reminded me of this...


Bart: People, people!  It's time we all discussed the pool safety rules!
Kids: Jump, Bart, jump!  Jump, Bart, jump!
Bart: You got it!
Nelson: Hey, Bart!  Your epidermis is showing.
Bart: It is? [Bart falls, starts yelling]
Nelson: See, "epidermis" means your hair. So technically it's true. That's what makes it so funny.
Pardon me a moment --[at Bart] Ha ha!
Milhouse: Hey Nelson, he's really hurt.  I think he broke his leg.
Nelson: I said, "Ha ha"!

I'm not a Simpsons fan but I appreciate that episode. That's the rear window'ish episode, right?

And PTA ain't winning no Golden Globe. Auteurs like him don't win Golden Globe's. They lose them.

We shouldn't want him to win one either. That would mean he's sold out and started catering to the masses.

DDL won for Best Actor but not Blood for Best Picture (atonewho?)  no noms for directing/writing/score means the Globes are a total joke to begin with. 

fuck them.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Who cares about the movies. You can't get mad over shit you already expected, but I kinda want to watch Mad Men now. The previews looked great but I never got around to watching the show. I hate to say the Golden Globes are motivation for me to watch anything, but they might just be.

Other than the obvious TWBB dissing, I'm not as mortified by these as I normally am.
Will Samantha Morton get Oscar dissed too?  Yes

Aren't the Golden Globe winners usually a pretty good indication of what will win at the Oscars? If so, then expect CMBB to be shafted again. But really, who gives a shit anyways? It took Scorsese 1010312024 films to finally get recognized.

Focus on the guild victories for good idea of who and what will win at the Oscars. The producers guild nominations were just announced. That will be the lead up to Oscar's Best Picture winner. Golden Globes don't do well to predict Oscar.
