AFTRA policy on award shows: You can skip them, if you want

AFTRA — the guild that covers announcers, presenters, dancers, singers and hosts at awards shows — has weighed in on the WGA's decision to refuse waivers for the Oscars and Golden Globes.

According to AFTRA, members may turn down an engagement if it means having to cross a picket line. But the union also says that once a performer has agreed to accept employment at an awards show, they are also obligated to perform due to the no-strike clauses in AFTRA contracts.

The entire announcement is after the jump.
