No Golden Globes Award Show For TV

Golden Globes a no go for TV this weekend. After last-ditch talks with the striking writers union fell through, NBC and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association scuttled the glittery Globes ceremony and replaced it with a stripped-down news special. The HFPA, responsible for bestowing the awards, now simply plans on holding a press conference to announce the 25 winners for the film and TV honors on Sunday at the Beverly Hilton, which will be aired as an hour long NBC News report.

"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,” Jorge Camara, HFPA president, said in a statement. "We take some comfort, however, in knowing that this year's Golden Globe Award recipients will be announced on the date originally scheduled."
