Breaking: Golden Globes Cancelled?

Variety is reporting that SAG president Allan Rosenberg says that not one of the 70 members of the Screen Actors Guild nominated for a Golden Globe will be present at the awards. Although NBC hasn't made an official move yet, its only a matter of time before they are going to be forced to pull the plug.

Rosenberg said in a statement Friday that they are in full support of their writing brothers and sisters:

After considerable outreach to Golden Globe actor nominees and their representatives over the past several weeks, there appears to be unanimous agreement that these actors will not cross WGA picket lines to appear on the Golden Globe Awards as acceptors or presenters. We applaud our members for this remarkable show of solidarity for striking Writers Guild of America writers.

Hollywood Foreign Press Association President Jorge Camara says the HFPA is being forced into a corner:

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has been placed in an extremely difficult position with the ongoing Writers Guild strike. We are making every effort to work out a solution that will permit the Golden Globes to take place with the creative community present to participate. We hope to announce a resolution to this unfortunate predicament on Monday.
