More potential casualties of the strike: the awards shows

Posted by gnn1 on Sunday, 18 November 2007

A prolonged strike could affect awards shows including the Golden Globes, Emmys, Grammys, SAG Awards, and possibly the Oscars.   December is nominations month for all except the Oscars, which are announced in January.

Writing for the shows starts after the nominations–sometimes the very next day–and doesn’t end until the show is off the air.

“You’re responding to what happens during the course of the show, so there’s writing going on all evening long,” he said, adding that nearly every part of the program is the work of the writers — “anything basically except an acceptance speech.” —  Bruce Vilanch, writer, Academy Awards

Neal Sacharow, a WGA spokesman, indicates that the WGA is unsure how the shows will be affected but confirms that many of them are “written under WGA contracts.”
