Golden Globe Awards 2008 Cancelled; No Golden Globes 2008 Ceremony
The WGA Strike is shutting down Hollywood. The 2008 Golden Globes is the latest of the dispute’s casualities. There will be no Golden Globe Awards Ceremony this year. Winners will simply be announced-and that won’t even be televised. Sucks for the nominees.
“After considerable outreach to Golden Globe actor nominees and their representatives over the past several weeks, there appears to be unanimous agreement that these actors will not cross WGA picket lines to appear on the Golden Globe Awards as acceptors or presenters,” SAG President Alan Rosenberg said in a statement.
“We applaud our members for this remarkable show of solidarity for striking Writers Guild of America writers.”
