As I'm sure you've heard by now, the Golden Globes are officially canceled. Dunzo.
The Golden Globes—which combine TV and movie categories—are the most fun awards show of the season, and the actors actually seem to enjoy themselves. Heck, sometimes an actor even moons the audience.
But once SAG said that none of its members would be crossing the picket lines, it was clear the Globes as we know it were in trouble.
As of yesterday afternoon, there was an unofficial schedule floating around regarding how NBC would salvage the Globes. It went like this:
7 p.m.: A Dateline special with clips and interviews with nominees
8 p.m.: A one-hour retrospective clip show
9 p.m.: A press conference announcing the winners
10 p.m. An Access Hollywood-style show visiting the various Golden Globes parties
First of all, that's just boring. Second of all, the WGA nixed everything but the press conference. So now that's all we're left with. Our beloved Globes have been whittled down from a fun, glamorous affair to a lackluster press conference. There will be no dazzling dresses, no shocking moments, no outrageous parties. Just a press conference.
Will you still watch?
Hey, maybe this will change the face of awards shows. After all, people do say the shows always go on too long anyway.
Be sure to check back here during the press conference to get your full list of winners.
