Dear Writers,

By going on strike and forcing the cancellation of the Golden Globes this year, you reminded the movie industry and film fans alike how pointless the event ultimately is.

Amidst all the pomp and circumstance, it was quite easy to ignore the fact that many within the film industry refer to the Globes as a sham because the winners are chosen mostly by a dubious group of “journalists.” And now, contrary to the overblown televised ceremony and lavish after-parties of previous years, Sunday night’s 30 minute press conference to announce the winners was more in keeping with the value of the actual awards.

Sincerest thanks.
