The 65th Golden Globe Awards, honoring the best in film and television of 2007, is scheduled to be presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association on January 13, 2008. However, due to the Writers Guild of America strike, the traditional awards ceremony will not take place; instead, the winners will be announced at a news conference at 9:00 pm EST on that day (02:00 January 14 UTC).

The 2007–08 Writers Guild of America strike is a strike by the Writers Guild of America, East (WGAE) and the Writers Guild of America, West (WGAW) that started on November 5, 2007. The WGAE and WGAW are two labor unions representing film, television and radio writers working in the United States.
The strike is against the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP), a trade organization representing the interests of American film and television producers. Over 12,000 writers joined the strike.
The Writers Guild has indicated their industrial action would be a "marathon". AMPTP negotiator Nick Counter has indicated negotiations would not resume as long as strike action continues, stating, "Were not going to negotiate with a gun to our heads—thats just stupid."
The current strike has lasted 9 weeks and 2 days, as of January 9, 2008. The last such strike in 1988 lasted 21 weeks and 6 days, costing the American entertainment industry an estimated $500 million.
