Golden Globes looking unlikely

Golden Globe AwardsAccording to Yahoo, the Golden Globe Awards looked a little less like as the Screen Actors Guild has stated that nearly all of its members refuse to cross the WGA Strike picket line. This makes it all the more important for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to obtain an independent deal with the WGA before the awards show is broadcast.

As previously reported on TV Squad, the HFPA was hoping to get an interim agreement with the WGA, similar to the one David Letterman and his production company Worldwide Pants obtained to continue The Late Show and The Late, Late Show with writers.

HFPA president Jorge Camara said a solution to the problem could come as early as Monday. The question is whether the solution will be an agreement with the WGA or a change in the format of the program to one that doesn't require writers, or quite possibly a cancellation of this year's broadcast.

With the Oscars coming up soon in February, the industry will certainly be watching this situation as it develops. If the Golden Globes are canceled, then it is entirely possible that the Oscars will follow suit.
