Due to threats of boycotts and picketing of the event due to the then-ongoing Writers Guild of America strike, the traditional awards ceremony did not take place; instead, the winners were announced during a news conference at The Beverly Hilton.

The nominees were announced on December 13, 2007.[1][2] The television film Longford was the most-awarded, with three awards including Best Miniseries or Television Movie. The film Atonement entered the Golden Globes with the most nominations, and won the awards for best drama film and original score. It was tied for the most-awarded film with The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (best foreign language film, and best director for Julian Schnabel), No Country for Old Men (best screenplay, and best performance by a supporting actor for Javier Bardem), and Sweeney Todd (winner of best musical or comedy film, and best performance in a musical or comedy film for Johnny Depp) which all received two.

Ceremony cancellationEdit

The Association attempted to reach an interim agreement with the Writers Guild to allow its members to write for the ceremonies. When a compromise fell through, striking writers threatened to picket the event; almost all of the celebrities planning to attend, including members of the Screen Actors Guild who pledged their support for the strike, promised to boycott the ceremony rather than cross the picket lines. On January 8, 2008, the HFPA chose to cancel the ceremony, and replace it with a press conference at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, held on January 13, 2008 at 6:00 p.m. PT.[3][4]

NBC initially planned to be the exclusive broadcaster of the press conference (which was to be hosted by Billy Bush and Nancy O'Dell of the NBC-produced syndicated entertainment news program Access Hollywood), but balked after Dick Clark Productions (who normally produces the ceremony and telecast) reportedly demanded that the network pay an additional "license fee" between $1.5 and $2 million for the privilege. DCP defended the allegations, having stated that it was inappropriate for NBC to hold "an exclusive three-hour broadcast special disguised as a news conference that would bar all other media" without paying the HFPA and DCP a "nominal license fee". There were also reports that NBC came into conflicts with the HFPA over the presentation of the event, centering upon the involvement of Access Hollywood.[5]

Due to the conflict, the HFPA took full control over the press conference, and announced that it would not impose any restrictions on who may televise it.[5][6] E! and TV Guide Network—two cable channels known for their red carpet coverage during awards season—both carried the press conference, but also reduced the extent of their overall coverage due to the lack of ceremony. TV Guide Network aired a two-hour pre-show and a one-hour post-show, anchored by Chris Harrison and Maria Sansone from the network's studio, as opposed to its traditional red carpet coverage hosted by Lisa Rinna and Joey Fatone.[7][8][9] By contrast, E! cancelled its Live from the Red Carpet coverage entirely, and scheduled a marathon of Keeping Up with the Kardashians in its place (breaking into programming for live coverage of the press conference).[5][10]

In place of the ceremony, NBC aired a two-hour Dateline special hosted by Matt Lauer, Going for Gold, which featured interviews with nominees, and guest predictions from comedian Kathy Griffin, and the panel of NBC's Sunday Night Football pre-game show Football Night in America. NBC did not air the official, 32-minute press conference, and instead presented the results over the course of an hour-long NBC News special hosted by Bush and O'Dell from the Access Hollywood studio. The results show was followed by an Access Hollywood special, where Bush and O'Dell visited the sites of the cancelled after-parties.[10][11][12][13][7]

Rob Owen of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette felt that NBC's resulting programming was an "over-produced mess". He argued that the aforementioned Dateline was "sort of a long, drawn-out 'Barbara Walters Special' without the soft-focus, tears or 'What kind of a tree would you be?' questions", and sarcastically acknowledged its inclusion of analysis from "noted film critics" Tiki Barber, Jerome Bettis and Cris Collinsworth. He also noted that one could have learned the results quicker by watching the roughly half-hour press conference on CNN, E!, or TV Guide Network instead, as NBC's format stretched the results into an hour-long program with commercial breaks (with results increasingly delayed from the actual announcement over the length of the program), and that TV Guide Network's pre-show coverage focused more on the impact of the WGA strike on the show and the entertainment industry.[7]
