WGA: No Waivers For Golden Globes, Oscars

Posted: Updated:

Two of Hollywood's most glamorous events are now caught up in the entertainment industry's ugliest labor dispute in two decades.

The Writers Guild of America, West, will not allow its members to write for the Golden Globes on Jan. 13 nor the Academy Awards on Feb. 24.

The group's board of directors decided not to give the academy an interim agreement for writing services, a person close to the guild said Monday, speaking on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to comment. The person declined to say when the decision had been made.
