Golden Globes cancelled

The Golden Globes ceremony has been shut down because actors say they refuse to cross the picket lines. The winners will be revealed at an hour-long press conference replacing the usual red carpet, dinner and glitz.

The Times said the press conference would be held at 9 p.m. EST and would be preceded by a "Dateline" special on the nominees and a clip show, and be followed by an "Access Hollywood-style program" covering various Golden Globes-related parties. They also report the Academy Awards could be threatened next month.

HFPA president Jorge Camara said that he was "very disappointed 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."
