Writers to picket Golden Globes

Ceremony takes place January 13

The WGA plans to picket the Golden Globes ceremonies on Jan. 13, assuming it’s still on strike at that point.

The move means that actors are unlikely to cross the picket line, although SAG said only that it was seeking reaction from members who have been nominated before announcing its plans.

A WGA spokesman confirmed the decision to picket, a day after the WGA turned down a request for a waiver from Dick Clark Prods., producer of the Globes. The WGA’s also denied a waiver request from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciencs for use of clips and has said it won’t OK an interim agreement for writing services so long as it’s on strike.

However, due to security precautions, it’s possible that someone would attend the ceremony and never see the pickets. Everyone who wants to get within a block of the Beverly Hilton needs a credential. Oscarcast security in years past has mandated that protesters be relegated to an area a few blocks away from the Kodak, and it’s quite possible a similar arrangement will occur with picketers at the Globes.
