Golden Globes Officially Canceled

Golden Globe awardsThe announced today what most people have known for weeks: the simply cannot go on as planned.  Even though the failed to grant the awards ceremony an interim deal, the show’s producers had still hoped they could somehow carry on.  Unfortunately, the put the final nail in the coffin last week.  After being told their presentation would lack all nominees, the HFPA finally conceded.

Although there was hope for something a bit splashier, the awards show was officially scaled down from a three-hour gala to a one-hour press conference today.  The dry presser - to be hosted live by NBC News - will air this Sunday @ 6pm PT.  Why the news division?  Well that’s because their writers work under a different contract. 

While I’m sad I won’t get to see my faves in their finest, there is one good thing to come out of all this.  Now we won’t have to see in her awkward stint as the next Miss Golden Globe.
