Golden Globes Needs Lots Of Seat Fillers


Today the Screen Actors Guild told its members they should not cross the WGA picket lines to attend the Golden Globe Award program. Previous announcements by SAG had put the onus of whether or not to cross on the individual actor. However, after speaking to most of the nominees and other actors, SAG President Alan Rosenberg said in a statement, "there appears to be unanimous agreement that these actors will not cross" the picket lines to present or accept an award.

If they are not going to present or accept an award, I guess they could go and get some free food and booze, but there won't be much else to do. NBC has not made an announcement as to whether or not they will broadcast the award show. If they want to kiss the asses of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore they could show three hours of awards being presented and Rumer Willis walking back and forth in front of an empty ballroom. That should be must see television. If NBC decided not to air it, then all the invitees could just go and get together and have one big drink fest and one hell of a party.

NBC will air it because they have nothing left to show. However, I am going to love how they are going to explain the horrible ratings for the award show. Yeah, we were greedy and decided not to cancel and gosh darn it, people wouldn't be suckered watching an award show without the nominees.

Maybe they can fill those seats with Flavor of Love/I Love New York/Shot of Live with Tila Tequila contestants and have one big nasty Jerry Springer style fight.

Duh, NBC announced days ago it would broadcast the Globes. This is SAG's way squeezing the "globes" to hopefully get the WGA strike resolved. Lots of $$$ for that night. SAG & DGA contracts come up in June.

might be aq good time to get a deal on a lovely gown or tux.

If this strike continues through the entire award season I'm afraid Rodeo Drive will go into deep depression.

If Harry Winston would like to "loan" me a milliion dollars worth of jewels, I promise to get my picture taken

I really cannot believe this. Ok, who are they going to have on? EVERYONE is SAG. Seriously, ENT, enlighten me who could possibly attend? It is bothering me, AFTRA cannot attend right? Rumor Willis she is SAG, so she is not supposed to be there. HELP!

I hope they donate all the uneaten food to charity.

um, les. we don't comment like perez here. It's offensive and it's not funny. Enough, please.

kellysirkus said...

josie - ignore him. He'll be back in school on Monday and won't have time to play on mommy's computer anymore. Let him play for one more day. He doesn't have any friends at his Middle School so he's stuck at home.

josie77 said...

I had him pegged as more of an impotent, balding middle-aged man stuck in middle management. But, your point is well taken, Kelly.

Rare Avis said...

HA! Again with my question though. Seriously, how can anyone attend the GG? I don't understand. Someone enlighten me. Aren't there ramifications like any union?

I'm packed and I'm holding
I'm smiling, she's living, she's golden
and she lives for me
She says she lives for me
Ovation
She's got her own motivation
she comes round and she goes down on me
And I make her smile
It's like a drug for you
Do ever what you want to do
Coming over you
Keep on smiling, what we go through
One stop to the rhythm that divides you
And I speak to you like the chorus to the verse
Chop another line like a coda with a curse
I come on like a freak show takes the stage
We give them the games we play, she said
I want something else
To get me through this
Semi-charmed kind of life baby, baby
I want something else
I'm not listening when you say
Good-bye

The sky it was gold, it was rose
I was taking sips of it through my nose
And I wish I could get back there
Some place back there
Smiling in the pictures you would take
Doing crystal myth
Will lift you up until you break
It won't stop
I won't come down, I keep stock
With a tick-tock rhythm and a bump for the drop
And then I bumped up
I took the hit I was given
Then I bumped again
And then I bumped again, I said
How do I get back there to
The place where I fell asleep inside you?
How do I get myself back to
The place where you said

I want something else
to get me through this
Semi-charmed kinda life baby, baby
I want something else
I'm not listening when you say
good-bye

I believe in the sand beneath my toes
The beach gives a feeling
An earthy feeling
I believe in the faith that grows
And the four right chords can make me cry
When I'm with you I feel like I could die
And that would be all right
All right

And When the plane came in
She said she was crashing
The velvet it rips
In the city we tripped
On the urge to feel alive
But now I'm struggling to survive
Those days you were wearing
That velvet dress
You're the priestess, I must confess
Those little red panties
They pass the test
So slide up around the belly
Face down on the mattress

One

Now you hold me
And we're broken
Still its all that I want to do just a little now,

Feel myself with a head made of the ground
I'm scared but I'm not coming down, no no
And I won't run for my life
She's got her jaws just locked now in smile
but nothing is all right
All right

I want something else
To get me through this
Semi charmed kind of life
I want something else
I'm not listening when you say
Good-bye

Fuck you, Josie, you cunt.

I just wish the networks would give them their damned money.

The networks need to share with their employees. There are some greedy old folks up there who didn't learn to share as a kid.

I understand they have already lost over $1 billion! That's alot of money!! Can you imagine loosing that kind of money instead of sharing it with those who are participating?? Can you imagine being so rich that you could loose that amount of money?!?!?!?

I liked it better when people shared more.
