GOLDEN GLOBES: JUST A PRESS CONFERENCE
Talk about scaling things back! This year the Golden Globes will be telecast as a series of NBC News specials due to the writers strike. The winners will be announced at a one-hour press conference Sunday, Jan. 13 at 9 pm/ET.
"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," says Jorge Camara, president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. "We take some comfort, however, in knowing that this year's Golden Globe Award recipients will be announced on the date originally scheduled."
NBC is reportedly planning to run a special episode of Dateline featuring clips from the nominated films and a possible pre-show before the press conference.
