The earth is flat: Golden Globes dinner-drink fest canceled

Facing massive no-shows by nominees, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has canceled its 65th annual Golden Globes awards ceremony, which NBC had planned to televise on Sunday, Jan. 13th.

Instead the winners will be announced at a brief, no-frills press conference to be covered live by NBC News at 8 p.m. (central time) Sunday.

The striking Writers Guild of America had strongly urged a boycott by the TV and movie stars whose attendance, on-stage participation and red carpet struts make the Globes tick. The official HFPA announcement is here.

Two big rival network premieres now will stand a better chance Sunday night. CBS is launching its three-part, six-hour Lonesome Dove prequel, Commanche Moon. Fox will counter with the first episode of its heavily promoted Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
