Will Globes Spin?

The fate of next week's Golden Globes Awards presentations remained up in the air over the weekend as the WGA rejected requests by Dick Clark Productions to negotiate an interim agreement on the same basis as the one signed with David Letterman's Worldwide Pants. The guild reportedly objects to the telecast on the grounds that it essentially promotes the industry that it is striking. Screen Actors Guild President Alan Rosenberg said over the weekend that no nominated actor would cross the guild's picket line. Moreover, a group of publicists who said that they represent a majority of the actors, writers and directors nominated for Golden Globes said in a letter to NBC President Jeff Zucker that their clients "are not comfortable crossing a picket line." The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which stages the awards telecast with Dick Clark Productions said that it hopes to "announce a resolution to this unfortunate predicament" today (Monday).
