Golden Globes Scaled Back, Thanks to Strike

Observer Media Mensch of the Year Nikki Finke is reporting that, thanks to the writers strike, NBC will not broadcast a traditional Golden Globe awards ceremony this year.

Instead, she writes, "a stripped down announcements telecast will be aired by NBC News. It will consist of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association handing out Golden Globes to the winners, who will then pick up the awards and pass through a press room for photos and interviews."

The Oscars, by the way, are in 48 days.
