Golden Globes downsized

  • 24comments

Hollywood's Golden Globe Awards will be presented as a "press conference" instead of the typical ceremony where winners of the film and television awards accept their honors onstage, show organizers said Monday.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association said in a statement the hour-long event will be covered by the news division of television network NBC.

The makeover results from the Hollywood screenwriters' strike and plans by the writers' union to picket the widely watched awards show, which would prompt many stars to boycott the program.
