LOS ANGELES – The The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, owner of the Golden Globe awards, issued a statement Wednesday saying that it began discussions last Saturday with the Writers Guild of America to enter into an interim agreement similar to that which permitted writers guild members to go back to work writing for “The Late Show with David Letterman.”

”We hope and expect the WGA will agree to the same terms and ultimately permit the 'Golden Globe Awards' to be broadcast as scheduled, without picket lines, on Sunday, Jan. 13,” said HFPA president Jorge Camara.

He pointed out the Golden Globes are not owned by NBC, which broadcasts the awards, thus averting issues facing other television shows which are owned by networks.

The Globes, which currently are set to be broadcast live on Jan. 13, would suffer a huge blow if there were no red carpet or broadcast of the gala. Designers and fashion companies would also lose major marketing opportunities if photographs and broadcast images of their wares were unavailable.

So far, fashion folk in Hollywood seem to be operating like last year, busily readying samples for stylists and planning events centered around the weekend.
