Will The Grammys Spin Out, Too?
The Grammys may become the next awards show to bite the dust as the result of the strike by the Writers Guild of America. Advertising Age reported Monday that the WGA has contacted many SAG performers scheduled to appear on the show, asking them not to do so. A WGA spokesman told the trade publication, "The [National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences] has not asked the WGA for a waiver or interim agreement for the Grammys. While no Guild decision has yet been made regarding the Grammys, if a waiver is requested for the Grammys, it is unlikely to be granted." The awards ceremony is scheduled to take place in Los Angeles on February 10.
