You know that writers' strike, right? Well, its tendrils are reaching farther than anyone originally anticipated, including to awards telecasts, beginning with the Golden Globes, which writers and supporters of the strike will likely not attend. What does that mean? Well, it means that no one will be writing the shows, which is bad enough, but that lots of celebrities who win awards won't show up, which could mean disaster.
And before you suggest it, it's not possible for them to cancel the awards shows, because there's already too much at stake for the networks and the voting organizations for them to do that. So, what we're going to get are some pretty boring awards ceremonies...more boring than usual, even.
