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.
