Striking writers can't work on Grammys, either

LOS ANGELES — The striking Hollywood writers guild says it will likely not allow its members to work on next month’s Grammy Awards telecast.

Gregg Mitchell, a spokesman for the Writers Guild of America, says Grammy organizers have not asked for a waiver allowing writers to work on the show — and a waiver is unlikely to be granted if requested.

Mitchell also says the guild has not made a decision on whether it will picket the Feb. 10 ceremony, set to air live on CBS.

The Recording Academy did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
