It's official, the Golden Globes ceremony as we know it has been canceled.
All though the golden globes aren't nearly as prestigious as the Academy Awards, the show is a fun one. The star heavy event usually yields some funny moments, unique winners and a fun celebrity time.
But this year, the actors have decided not to cross the Writers Guild picket lines in order to attend this event. And with no actors, theirs no show.
With out the actors there to give out awards and accept their trophies, the Golden Globes simply aren't very much fun.
I don't feel sympathy for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) who choose the winners, or for NBC, or the actors...except one.
Of all the 72 nominees, I feel very sorry for Nikki Blonsky. Nikki is among other first time nominees (Amy Ryan, Saoirse Ronan, Casey Affleck or Ellen Page), but plucked out obscurity while working at an Ice Cream shop, this is surely Blonsky's one chance to attend an award show of this nature.
I'm sure she was excited to be able to show off in front of her high school friends. She probably had a dress all picked out. She probably knew who she was going to have as her date. She probably was heart broken that a writer's strike is ruining her dream.
Nikki, my heart goes out to you.
