Golden Globes Cancelled!

NBC is having a press conference this afternoon to announce they are canceling Sunday's Golden Globe ceremonies. That's right, the show won't even go on un-televised, which is probably a good move (imagine how boring the untelevised version could have been). NBC instead plans to run a press conference announcing the winners intercut with clips of the stars at parties. Nikki Finke's sources claim this will be the new line-up:

  • 7:00pm: Dateline's clips and interviews with nominees cut from the two-hour piece from the prior night. Meh!
  • 8:00pm: A possible one-hour retrospective/clip show. Snor!
  • 9:00pm: Golden Globe Winner Press conference.
  • 10:00pm: An Access Hollywood style Golden Globes party show. Who cares?

It will be interesting to see if the same thing happens to the Academy Awards if this Writers Strike isn't settled before then.
