Golden Globes officially canceled

There won’t be a red carpet or a three-hour telecast with cheesy jokes or musical numbers. The Golden Globes award show has officially been canceled.

Instead, a one-hour news conference will be shown live on NBC at 9 p.m. Sunday night to announce the winners.

"We are all very disappointed that our traditional awards ceremony will not take place this year and that millions of viewers worldwide will be deprived of seeing many of their favorite stars celebrating 2007's outstanding achievements in motion pictures and television," said Jorge Camara, president of The Hollywood Foreign Press Association. "We take some comfort, however, in knowing that this year's Golden Globe Award recipients will be announced on the date originally scheduled."

I think the format change could be dangerous for future Globe shows. Cutting down the long drawn-out show to simply announce the winners could be a hit with viewers.
