FREEZE! WGA. Put your hand where I can see them
NBC has denied Access Hollywood to host the Golden Globes news conference, and is instead using it’s news division so they can go around the strike. However, from what I’m told, the strikers will be in full force.
So they’ve teamed up Kathy Griffin with Matt Lauer to host a two-hour Dateline special walk-up show, Going for Gold. Along side of the two will also be the Football Night in America gang to predict all of the Golden Globe winners. The actual Golden Globes news conference will be from 9-10PM. Which will leave them one-hour to fill from 10-11PM. So what will NBC do? They’re going to re-run American Gladiators during that hour time-slot. Wow, way to figure things out NBC. The show will be very interesting to say the very least…the Globes followed by the Hulk, all in a Sunday’s work? In all seriousness, I bet you with all of the PR and drama the Globes have caused, the ratings will be much higher than the past few years. This will be a true test that this might in fact be a much more efficient way to hold a ceremony that’s too long and boring anyway.
