Will writers strike spoil award shows?

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Variety posts an informative article today about how the ongoing writers strike will affect Oscar season. Several of the shows have asked the Writers Guild of America for a waiver, which would allow striking writers to work on jokes, monologues and speeches for the stars. No word yet on whether the Globes will get its waiver — and nominations are revealed tomorrow morning — but the WGA has granted such a waiver to the 14th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. But the real question is, waivers or none, will the stars still attend the shows if the strike marches on?

ABC also has this story about what the shows might be like without writers. It ain't pretty.
