Thanks to the Screen Actors Guild's Friday announcement that actors and movie stars would not be crossing Writers Guild picket lines to attend this weekend's Golden Globes awards ceremony, NBC has yanked the telecast. The network will instead air a block of Globes-related programming, including a live telecast of a decidedly not star-studded press conference, where winners will be announced. Here's the HFPA's official press release...

RECIPIENTS OF “THE 65th ANNUAL GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS” TO BE ANNOUNCED AT BEVERLY HILTON PRESS CONFERENCE ON JANUARY 13th



HOLLYWOOD, CA, January 7, 2008 – The Hollywood Foreign Press
Association

in 25 categories will be revealed during an hour-long HFPA press

beginning at 6:00 pm PST on January 13. “The 65th Annual Golden Globe
Awards” NBC telecast and champagne dinner in The Beverly Hilton’s
International Ballroom

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
