The 65th Golden Globes Officially Cancelled

You might know this already but I’m gonna post it anyway: it is official and it is true, the 65th Golden Globe Awards this year is CANCELLED. Every year we get to enjoy a unique awards ceremony that gives accolade to the best achievements in film and television, and also serves as a deserving prequel to the glitz and glamour of the Academy Awards, as well as often being seen as a forecaster of Oscar winnings that shortly follows the Golden Globes. However, there will be no such luxury this year as the on-going writers strike claimed its very first major victim. NBC and the President of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Mr. Jorge Camara announced that:

“The 65th Annual Golden Globe Awards” NBC telecast and champagne dinner in The Beverly Hilton’s International Ballroom is officially cancelled.

“We are all very disappointed that our traditional awards ceremony will not take place this year and that millions of viewers worldwide will be deprived of seeing many of their favorite stars celebrating 2007’s outstanding achievements in motion pictures and television. We take some comfort, however, in knowing that this year’s Golden Globe Award recipients will be announced on the date originally scheduled.”

The “announced on the date originally scheduled” in question just means a watered-down version in a form of a 1-hour press conference, telecast “live” from The Beverly Hilton’s International Ballroom on January 13th. NBC will officially beam-out the live telecast worldwide.

So, I guess we have to shove the champagne back into the fridge and hope that this writer’s strike does not claim its 2nd victim: The Academy Awards. Now that will be heart-breaking.
