Golden Globes: Writers Guild of America affects Vancouver's Hollywood North

I'm going to miss watching the Golden Globe awards Sunday night on TV. Due to the Writers Guild of America strike, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will reveal the recipients of the awards during an hour-long press conference at The Beverly
Hilton on Sunday, Jan. 13 at 9 PM PST on NBC.
The usual telecast and booze infused dinner from the hotel's International Ballroom has been cancelled. But the writers' strike is affecting more than my TV viewing.

Vancouver has felt the impact, as reflects this story in The Globe and Mail: 
Quiet on the set. Let's hope things get ironed out before the Academy Awards on Feb. 24, 2008.
