The Golden Globe nominations signal the start of awards season in Hollywood, sending actors, writers, producers and fans into a frenzy as the stars prepare to flood the red carpet.
But the Writers Guild of America strike has put the Globes in a predicament. Without writers, there won't be any dialogue for the stars on stage. Actors who are supporting the WGA, like the cast of "Grey's Anatomy," might not show up.
The Globes has requested a waiver from the WGA, but has not yet received it. A waiver would grant the awards show a reprieve when the ceremony airs Jan. 13.
The WGA has already granted a waiver to the Screen Actors Guild's 14th annual awards.
