So the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has officially cancelled the 65th annual Golden Globe Award ceremony on January 13. Instead, there will be a press conference at the same time (6 pm pst) to announce the winners of the 2008 Golden Globes. Click here for the official announcement from HFPA.
To maintain solidarity with striking Hollywood writers, the Screen Actors Guild indicated earlier that all the 72 nominees would not show up for the 65th Golden Globe Award. Click here for more details.
For a change, good movies and TV shows are announced without all the glitz and glamour, no fashion statements, no red carpet photo ops… just no-nonsense recognition of some no-nonsense movie making and TV production.
With all due respect to the writers, and the HFPA’s financial loss in the cancellation, and all the nominees who deserve recognition, I say…a nice change.

The glitz and glamour aside, for the first time in a very long time the media and all (including us) are really into movies for the movies other than the stars and who will wear what…Not to say that the star power has diminished into thin air, it’s all the talk we’ve been hearing…actors saying “I want to be recognized by the work I have done not how little clothes I wear in them (or for that matter, how much I’ve taken off through the film)”
The gossips toned down at the preshow (because there is no preshow), The golden globe has been scaled down to just like any critic review of movies, which allow us to look into movies to what they truely are….
Wilson: Thanks for your comment. Isn’t it true that often the packaging misleads us as to the real value of a product. But then again, it’s show BUSINESS!
