Following a private meeting with high-profile Golden Globe nominees, the president of the Screen Actors Guild reiterated on Friday that members would not cross picket lines to appear on the awards show later this month.
“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,” the president, Alan Rosenberg, said in a statement.
Mr. Rosenberg and other SAG board members have spent several weeks reaching out to actors and their representatives. Friday’s statement echoed previous comments that expressed actor support for the writers’ guild.
The statement also urged members to appear on “The Late Show with David Letterman” and “Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” the two late-night shows that have struck deals with the writers guild. As for the other shows: “Actors who are asked to appear on the struck network talk shows will have to cross WGA picket lines, creating the same situation that has led to the consensus among actors to skip the Golden Globes,” Mr. Rosenberg wrote.
The Golden Globes are scheduled to be shown on NBC Jan. 13. The fate of the broadcast remains unclear.
Also won't be able to see Rumer as Miss Golden Globe either.
(I forgot about Rumer. BUMMER!)
