The Grammy Award

The annual Grammy Awards will be the next casualty of the Hollywood writers strike, after Writers Guild of America (WGA) union members insisted the music ceremony was "unlikely" to receive a waiver.The annual event is under threat of cancellation after celebrities like Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, 50 Cent and Jon Bon Jovi pledged their allegiance to the striking WGA members, who have been on thepicket line since November over royalties on DVD sales.They have reportedly vowed not to cross picket lines, echoing the stance of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) members, which resulted in Sunday’s Golden Globes being reduced to a simple news television show. And yesterday, WGA spokesman Gregg Mitchell announced, "While no guild decision has yet been made regarding the Grammys, if a waiver is requested for the Grammys, it is unlikely to be granted."
