    The Golden Globe awards have been officially cancelled.

    The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has just confirmed that Sunday's awards ceremony has been axed. Allegedly winners will be announced during some type of hour-long DEAD BORING news conference at the Beverly Hilton. PFFFFFT!

    Faced with the threat of a boycott by actors who refuse to cross striking writers' picket lines, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association were forced to make this decision.

    Sorta hard to have a ceremony when no stars are gonna show... so no show!

    Yeah, as long as awards are given out I don't see a downside.

    As opposed to the ~3-hour-long dead boring, self-indulgent Hollywood back-patting epic that the Golden Globes usually are? I'll take the news conference, thanks. Yet another benefit to the writer's strike, as far as I'm concerned. Hopefully, this thing will last long enough to cancel all of the usual spring awards shows, including (especially) the Oscars.

    EDIT - Skimming a few articles, it's still going to be roughly three hours long, just with two hours of clips instead of the usual acceptance speeches and bad skits/jokes/music.

    Hurray! I'd rather they showed repeats instead of an award show.

    You've obviously never been married to a celebrity junkie. There's a reason I haven't gotten cable since the divorce.

    I think that is it good that they cancelled it. More publicity for the writers strike.
