Put away your crudite platter and the champagne glasses because there won't be any Golden Globes to have a party for this year. The writer's strike has claimed its first awards show victim of the season, as actors refused to cross the picket line to attend the event. Organizers of the Globes say that there won't be a formal awards ceremony like we're used to, instead the Hollywood Foreign Press will hold an hour-long press conference to announce the winners. "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," HFPA president Jorge Camara said. "We take some comfort, however, in knowing that this year's Golden Globe Award recipients will be announced on the date originally scheduled."
Not as disappointed as we are -- the Globes are the best awards show of them all, with all the drinking and the cursing! And the nominees were so good this year -- Angelina, George -- I was even curious to see if Atonement's Keira Knightley would eek out a smile for the red carpet. I think I'll just take Alec Baldwin up on his invite and head over there on Sunday... Anyway, make sure you check back here for a list of the Golden Globe winners and, in the meantime, check out our Golden Globes quiz.
