The Grammys is the latest big American awards show that may be disrupted by the ongoing Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike, which thus far has derailed the Golden Globes and is threatening next month’s Oscars.
Scheduled to be broadcast live on CBS on 10 February, the Grammys are America’s biggest music industry awards. According to Hollywood Reporter, Grammy organisers have not yet asked the WGA for a script waiver, a request that would probably be denied. (All big awards shows need a script.)
The WGA itself is still decide whether or not to picket the Grammys ceremony. It was the WGA’s picketing of the Golden Globes ceremony that led to the cancellation of the Golden Globes, when the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) expressed solidarity for the WGA cause by refusing to cross the picket line.
