iW NEWS | Golden Globes Ceremony Cancelled

The 25 award categories of the 65th annual Golden Globe Awards will be revealed during an hour-long press conference at the Beverly Hilton, which will be covered live by NBC News beginning at 6:00pm PST on January 13, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced Monday. The “65th Annual Golden Globe Awards NBC telecast and champagne dinner at the Beverly Hilton’s International Ballroom in Beverly Hills, CA is officially cancelled, according to a statment released by HFPA. Rumors began circulating last week that the traditional format of the event would be scrapped after the Screen Actors Guild‘s earlier announcement that actors would honor the Writers Guild strikers, which were set to picket the event. “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,” commented Jorge Camara, President of The Hollywood Foreign Press Association 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.” [Brian Brooks]
