HOLLYWOOD, CA, January 7, 2008 –
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association today announced that the recipients of Golden Globe Awards in 25 categories will be revealed during an hour-long HFPA press conference at The Beverly Hilton to be covered live by NBC News beginning at 6:00 pm PST on January 13. “The 65th Annual Golden Globe Awards” NBC telecast and champagne dinner in The Beverly Hilton’s International Ballroom is officially cancelled.
“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,” said 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.”
In other related news, looks like UNITED ARTISTS have reached their own agreement, but not all the other studios are happy about it. Well, if this keeps up, and the Oscar show bites the dust, then you all will be really thrilled with the CUE AWARDS this year. I have already worked out my own agreement with our writers. They are happy. I'm happy. You'll be happy to know our awards will not just maintain the status quo, but will be better than ever!
