The Golden Globes could be extra boring this year, because a bunch of nominees have already said they will not attend if the writer's strike is still going on. They refuse to cross picket lines.
Katherine Heigl (nominated for Grey's): "I'm not crossing the picket line, not unless I'm contractually obliged to do, which, for the Golden Globes, I'm not."
James McAvoy (Atonement): “I don’t think I’d want to do that. It’s an environment I wouldn’t want to stick my nose into. I’m not from this country and for me to stick my nose and throw my small weight around wouldn’t be right.”
David Cronenberg (Eastern Promises): “It would be very hard for me to cross a WGA picket line. Everybody will have the same problem. It’s very unfornuate and an issue that won’t go away."
Glenn Close (Damages): “I would never cross a picket line.”
Jeremy Piven (Entourage): "I don’t know about whether or not I'll be attending because to be honest with you, I don’t know a lot about the rules and limitations of what is happening. I need to look into it. Writers are kind of these unsung heroes. People don’t see how much these guys work and they're just trying to cover their bases for themselves and for the future. I hope they get what they deserve and I'll do anything I can to help that."
Oh please, Jeremy Piven is so full of shit. He's probably trying to broker a deal with the Golden Globes that if they give him the award he'll show up.
They should just get Ellen Degeneres to accept and give away all the awards. She'll cross a picket line. A one-woman Golden Globes.
Oh shit! What about Rumer Willis as Miss Golden Globe?! End this strike now! I have to see Rumer humiliating herself on National TV.
